I Am a Closet Lesbian

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,302 People

    I've told about 8 people about me.

    that includes only 1 family member. I plan on fully coming out to everyone my freshman year but I feel dumb when I can't even tell my sister or closer family members who I am.

    I'm sure loads of girls have posted about this,

    and I'm sorry if this is just another one of those stories. But I really need to get this out. I am currently in a relationship with a guy. I love him a lot. But I'm almost positive that I am a lesbian, or at the very least, bisexual with a very strong tendency towards women...

    I Am Almost Certain I'm Gay... But I Love My Boyfriend. Argh. Help.

    I'm in my mid-twenties and I'm really just starting to accept that I'm a lesbian. The signs were always there, and I suppose it's always been in the back of my head since I was little. Men really don't interest me. I LOVE them purely and fully. I even feel in love with them.I...

    Why Do People Assume You Choose To Be Gay Or Lesbian?

    Today during my Sociology class, we were talking about deviance and how a lot of psychologists believe that you're born 'bad'. Well, one of my stupid classmates, Ian, said, "I don't believe you can be born bad just as much as you can be born gay,"Well, that got me ticked off. Why...

    Some days are harder

    than others... Today is one of them. Just keep fighting. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. Just keep fighting. It's my choice for it to be like this I understand, I'm not ready to come out. A lesbian 17 year old in my high school, forget it! I'd rather have it this way...

    My Daughter Is A Closet Lesbian

    I have been wanting to write this story for a long time. This story is a tribute to my one and only daughter. For simplicity I will refer to my daughter as "M". After 5 children and several years of marriage my wife and I divorced. Our youngest, M, thought that I did not love her...

    I told my friend today.

    I was the first whom she came out as a bisexual, so I thought she would understand me. I was right. she supports me. She told me: "whatever you need me or talk about something; I'm here for you. We are together in this". Was even better because she told me this face to face...

    My mom just found out

    that I am in love with one of my best friends.. She was fuming mad at me. She said that I better stop seeing her... I could only cry. I wanted to tell her that I am really gay and there is nothing I can do with it. I want to run away from home so I can be free.

    But it just never really worked. When I tried dating guys, after a couple weeks I just couldn't do it anymore, I felt nothing towards them. Every time. I kept trying to go farther with guys sexually and I never felt aroused or good. When I lost my virginity to a guy it was awful...

    I'm a Closeted Lesbian

    I'm not sure how I got to this point. It's like I have two different lives--two sets of friends, two sets of stories; everything split rather unequally to fit into 'gay' and 'normal'. Not straight. Normal. My mother is my idol, and she's the hardest-working, most beautiful...
