I've always considered myself straight, but now I'm unsure. I've experimented with the same sex, but I'm still unsure of my sexual orientation. I know that my family and friends would be unaccepting, but it would be alright if only I could be sure. I can't take this uncertainty! If only there was some sort of test.

You know... It honestly doesn't matter what your family thinks. It's what you think of yourself and what you want. When I told my family they told me that I was just going through a "freakish phase" it stung for a while, but then I realized that the person I am is who I want to be.. It doesn't matter what any one else thinks about you, just what you think of yourself. I have to admit.. It's tough to come out.. But when you do it's as if a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Just.. Sit them down and make it clear, but more importantly.. Be proud of yourself.

none of us wanted to go through all that. It's sad but it's how it is with most families still. You have a little advantage in that your broher came out first. That usually softens the blow. i know after I came out as bi and transsexual, my family barely noticed when my sister said she was bi too. <br />
I don't talk to my family anymore though, except siblings, so my story wouldn't be very reassuring to you. All I can say is, you need to be yourself, it's the most important thing

I understand and accept that. But my only sibling, my elder brother, turned out to be gay. And I've seen all the strife and disapproval inny family that has resulted from that. So, if I do turn out to be bisexual, I just don't want to go through all that.
