I Need Confidence!

I'm almost 18 and I know I'm a lesbian. I just do not find men attractive, women are far more appealing to me.
I can't tell anyone. I'm too afraid. Not even my best friends, and I know they would accept it. I can't tell my parents, but I know they'd accept it too. I'm afraid to tell people.. I don't wanna be judged for it.
But I do want a girlfriend. It's tearing at me constantly. Help!

Ahh, it's like I could have written that. I'm in the EXACT same situation as you! Only difference is I'm 22, and it took me a while to realize what I was.

girl dont be afraid to be you...its a huge relief when you come out ...and no longer have to hide a part of you...plus wouldnt it be nice to be able to talk about girls with your friends...or potential love interest

im in the same boat as you. most of my freinds would except me even my parents but i just cant bring myself to tell them, although i think my mom already knows. i tell myself that if i ever got a serious girlfreind i would come out that way. i just remind myself that my family will be suportive when it does happen.
