    The Grand Narrative

    Today I took a road down memory lane. I stopped by my old work place for a small chat, some salad and a orange tart. I asked a friend who was still working in the restaurant. I wanted to find her name. I know her name on facebook. It is guy's name, because on facebook she writes...

    Im a 16 year old female

    who has always been straight and the girl who's never done anything. Lately I've been feeling more and more attracted to girls because they're like me and sexy and all this stuff. But I feel like people would think I'm faking it. I just wanna try stuff like kissing and more to...

    I Hate This...

    I think I might be asexual... meaning I basically don't like sex. This is so ******* confusing for me! I know I like girls, I know I like to kiss, cuddle, occasionally make out...but... then what? Finding out I liked girls was hard enough for me to come to terms with, but this is...

    I am attracted to women,

    I know this, but I'm not sure whether the label bisexual or lesbian is more fitting. I used to call myself a bisexual when I first realized I was attracted to women, but without having any actual relationships with women, I feel like I don't have a point of reference to actually...

    I consider myself to be bisexual (attracted to

    both sexes sexually) and hetero-romantic (only romantically attracted to the opposite sex/ will date the opposite sex). Every attempt I've experience with trying to date a girl had failed so I just stick to dating guys and being sexually involved with girls. It's hard explaining...

    I know I like guys in a romantic way,

    and in a "I want to spend the night snuggling with you way", but for some reason the concept of intercourse and other related activities seems so foreign and wrong and dare I say, disgusting. And then I sometimes have an attraction to females. It's confusing enough that I just...

    Ok so I think I mite like girls, I don't really know what it is but I've always been taken by them and wanted to be close to them and if I'm totally honest with myself, if I think about being with someone and being in love with someone down the line its a woman that comes to mind...

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with same sex

    love. In fact, I think it's cuter and sweeter (better) than a heterosexual relationship yet I feel uncomfortable letting people know I'm bi and I don't understand why. I can be honest with myself and admit it (and to people online who I'll never see), but It's very embarrassing...

    It's not that I struggle with

    who I am or know what I like. I identify as queer just because I prefer that label over the others. My fear is that I am a gay woman in a heterosexual relationship. I found no attraction to the opposite sex, sure I thought boys were cute but I didn't think of them in sexual ways...

    I have known I am gay

    since I was 13. I am just now coming to terms with it. I spent a long time trying to run from or change it. when faced with it, I become depressed. I dislike talking about it to people. I don't know what to do.

    I feel like I'm in a glass closet.

    I feel that everyone that I meet knows instantly that I am a homosexual. It scares me because I feel that, if I cannot hide my sexuality, I cannot hide anything that I do not want to share. When I'm surrounded by friends, I feel comfortable, to a certain extent, but their is...

    I've found myself fantasizing about women more

    and more. I don't even know how to approach a woman for a date or anything. Since I was about 7, my girl crush was always Lucy lawless lol. Maybe I've been suppressing these feelings for a long time. 😩

    I am completely confused about my sexuality.

    I am like a mix of bisexual, asexual, and other stuff that I don't even completely understand. I have had trouble having relationships because my lack of attraction, but it's way more complicated than that. I'm seriously just lost right now.

    Not only my sexuality

    but also my gender. I am male but want to be female. To make things worse I live in the south so people literally want me to die. Plus I am bisexual and it's tempting to just to go straight because even my therapist doesn't accept me.

    I wasn't and am still not attracted to people by physical appearance, but by their heart. I've never really told anyone I know in real life about this, I've mostly just met others like me online. So I've dated a few people of both genders and some androgynous people, but the...

    I don't like telling anyone what my sexuality.

    It's partly because I'm afraid of what people will think but it's mostly because I'm not sure. I just know I'm not completely straight. I don't think I could ever completely come out though.

    I'm attracted to women and have been for as long as I can remember. I had a somewhat abusive childhood (mostly emotional) and can't help but wonder if that's the reason I am a lesbian. My mother consumes a lot of aspartame, so that could be the cause as well. Or both. Either...
