Find About  Steve Kornacki's Online 'Boyfriend' Adventure 

From childhood to adulthood, Steve had a tough and different life than others. He lived in fear, stuck in a web of lies and secrecy about himself.

When all his guy friends were crushing over a sexy girl, he was usually in a restricted manner gushing over the guys. Why?

Because he was gay; he lived a life crippled with loneliness, staying guarded about being gay. That’s why the list of his dating life had been a blank page. 

He couldn’t be in a relationship with a girl, and concurrently, he couldn’t ask a guy he liked or loved to be his partner without being outed as gay: he went to great lengths to avoid being outed as gay as he went to the prom with his mom as well.

Finally, he made a plan not to be lonely as well as not be exposed as gay; when he was attending Boston University, he started secretly dating online to find out what it would be like to be someone’s boyfriend.

However, he had fears before starting - concerned about contracting a disease and worried that the guy ends up exposing him, he had second thoughts about the whole online dating game. That was the life he led before he had come out as gay!

He penned the whole experience-his story as a gay man--while he was working at a magazine called Salon, where he published his story.

A week prior to the publication, he had told his family to which they replied, "We're proud of you."

In the same story, Kornacki spoke about dating men secretly online. He happened to meet a special guy, who happened to be in a similar situation; he referred to that particular boyfriend as 'Dan' although he cited that it wasn’t his real name.

His boyfriend, Dan, come out as gay in 2010 and asked Kornacki to see his parents. However, the American news personality declined the offer out of paranoia and lost his loving partner.   

That regret, that sense of companionship he got to cherish which he lost ultimately, became the reason for him to come out as gay. He did, and since then, he has been very open about his sexuality.

Who Is Steve Kornacki's Partner In 2018? 

He would have probably got married to a girl if he hadn’t come out as gay- because that was the only thing left to do- that or spending the rest of his life without any partner, any kids and any family of his own.

To not suffocate in the misery and challenging life as a closeted gay man, he often chose humor to let some of his pain out. Even after he was open about his sexuality, that habit remained.

A few years after Steve came out as gay (in 2011), he joked about his relationship in public. When he was asked whether he had a wife by a random Twitter user on 17 September 2015, he sarcastically replied,

“My wife Ginny and I have been blissfully married for 14 years.”

His unrevealing humorous relationship tweets over the years show his lingering fears from the past. However, as for his love life in 2018, he seems to be on a lookout for a partner, but this time with freedom, moving away from his troubled youth.
