I Am Pansexual

Fluidity is key. 2,186 People

    I'm a 17 year old girl

    and people always ask me when I plan to get a boyfriend. I was just thinking and I wondered this... What if for a moment we pretend (rather acknowledge) that we are all human. Eliminate the labels of heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual. We all develop preferences (including...

    I'M A Odd Duck

    I'm identifying myself as bisexual but I've started to consider my love for people of all shapes, sizes, genders, etc. I feel bi but I'm not really bi, I guess. What's the deal?

    Recently just discovered what pansexual means!

    I was always into girls and guys as well but what i am really into-is personality, if someone can make me happy regardless of gender and vise versa then i dont see whats wrong with loving that person and yeah thats about it. Haha!

    Ok, I feel the need to address this: PANSEXUAL

    means you're attracted to people of every gender ie. male, female, transvestite, or transgender. It's a sexuality for crying out loud. It DOES NOT mean you don't care about their other features. Their weight, race, age, religion, ect have nothing to do with sexuality nor does it...

    I forgot how easily people make assumptions,

    myself included. When I came out as a pansexual one of the first questions someone asked me was if I would have a relationship with someone who is transgender. I was thrown. Of course I would. I thought everyone one would too. Apparently not.

    Screw it! I am done with being straight just

    because that's "normal" I am pretty damn tired of dating guys because the way I've been treated but I'm still attracted to them so maybe I'll try in the future again. I'm also attracted to girls. I also think they would understand certain situations better than previous guys I...

    After being with an FTM transgender,

    I've really opened my eyes to the wonders of being pansexual. There was a time where I was only attracted to masculinity, but after several times of making love I've come to adore the feminine qualities that my transman still has. This is not to say that I am automatically...

    My last story was about my ex Kevin,

    and why I ended things with him and where we are now. I said I would catch you up on the infidelity. Well, Kevin had told me he didn’t want me to miss out on any experiences that I would normally get while I am in college. So he said I could hook up with any girl, he just didn...

    It is so awesome and a relief

    when you find a sexuality that truly belongs to you. To me being pansexual means I don't have to limit myself when I see someone I like. Their looks wouldn't be as important to me as their personality.

    I have come out to my close friends

    but don't feel the need to tell my parents. They aren't very accepting people so I'm not going to waste my time. If I date someone who's not a cis male, they will just have to deal with it.

    I've always known there was something different

    about me compared to other people. And over time this feeling got worse, especially with finding out there was such thing as gender identity and I pretty much turned into the typical straight person in denial (mostly because of my religious family and community), but with...

    I didn't realize it at first,

    and I am still coming to terms with the implications, but, after reading other people's experiences, I realized I fit here. I am still technically in the closet. This is my first figurative "outing", figurative because you people don't know who I am. As far as support, I don't...

    Chained By My Own Mind

    I actually figured that I was pansexual quite easily. I was attracted to girls so I figured I was lesbian, but I realized I was still attracted to men so I figured I was bisexual. And then I fell in love for the first time with a friend of mine- who was a genderless, intersexed...

    I have always known i was different.

    Growing up my crushes consisted over both genders but it wasn't about their physical being more like i loved their personality. Love is love and nothing as silly as gender should stop you from loving who you love :)

    Hey people, I used to think I was bisexual

    for a few years so I came out as bisexual but then on Friday I was playing this game with my mate and then someone said they were pansexual. So i researched upon it and now I realised that I am in fact a pansexual. Wooooooo.

    To me, it's not seeing race, gender, or other things that could make people less desirable. I just fall or crush on people. It doesn't matter.
