I Am Unsure About My Sexuality

    Ok, I am a young teen girl

    that is confused with my sexuality. I know I shouldn't be stressed over such a silly thing because I'm only young, but I would rather find out if I'm gay, bi or straight to stop me stressing and get on with my life knowing who I am. Recently, I have been thinking about what it...

    Can Just One Person Change Your Sexuality?

    I really don't know what to make of it; i've never fallen in love with a girl before, i have never felt this strongly for a girl before, yet all i do is think about her and just wish she was with me ( i recently moved away). She's no help when talking to about the matter because...

    Currently I'm identifying

    as bisexual, I've only had one serious long term relationship which was with a woman but I've casually dated men also, but I'm starting to think I might be a lesbian. I just can't connect on the same level with men as I can with a woman and sex with a woman is so much more...

    I'm Confused...sometimes Proud, Sometimes Ashamed.

    So basically I never even thought about my sexuality growing up. I just had boyfriends. I made out with my best girl friend in highschool but I figured it was just for fun I guess. I never really thought about it. I knew she was bisexual but I was into guys and never thought...

    I'm Just Going To Say

    That I like girls.I'm attracted to women.They just draw my attention, more than they ever have before.Maybe it's because my curiosity changed from that to developing a personal interest in a girl, but still.What is confusing me is that now that all of this has come to the clear,I...

    Growing up I was always told girls are supposed

    to be with guys. I've never really given much thought to my sexuality up until a little while ago. I guess since I was always told that it's wrong for girls to be with girls and guys to be with guys, I never really considered that I might be anything except straight. I've never...

    For a majority of my life my peers have always

    assumed I was gay. I was called gay before I really understood the meaning behind the word. I was the "gay kid/***" from elementary-the day I graduated. But I've only just recently considered the possibility that I, in fact, may be gay. Am I attracted to the male body? Yes...

    If anyone can help pm me.

    I am romantically attracted to men but I'm not physically attracted to men. The idea of having sex and kissing men appeals to me emotionally because I want to bond with them. Outside of a fantasy setting the idea repulses me at worst and at best Ijust find it odd. My attraction...

    As I've never had a relationship in my life

    so far I'm quite confused about my sexuality. I did date several guys but I never attempted to meet any girls as I didn't feel right about it. Maybe I also was a bit judgy about the whole topic as it is hard to find approval in a society which is almost constantly judging...

    I think I'm "demisexual"

    I always knew there was something different about me, but being cyclothymic, I kind of assumed it was that. I'd always liked guys, and though I admired my girl friends, I never really knew what being gay was. The first time it really occurred to me,I was in seventh grade, 12. I...

    I think that I'm bi because I do like the way

    girl'a bodies look. But only certain girls turn me on. I don't know if it's just because I have a very specific type or if I'm not sure that I'm bi. Now I don't need you people telling me that I'm asking for attention because I'm not. I'm just not sure if I'm really bi or not.

    I've never really given much thought to my

    sexuality. I don't think I'm ready for any kind of intimacy yet, not so soon. I think I have to get through all of this first, then turn my thoughts to my preferences after. I'm really not bothered by who I like at the moment, to be honest.

    I'm thinking I might be panesexual,

    though there's never been a girl I've had a crush on. I have imagined a couple of girls that I'm interested in, but does my imaginations sexuality count for mine to? I would definetly be panesexual over bisexual, as I really never care about anything but personality.
