Help!So, I'm 16. Around 6 or 7 months ago I, after a long think about it realised I was gay. I was perfectly happy with who I was. I told some of my friends and they were happy for me and have been very supportive. So a few days ago I decided it was time to let my parents know. I sat them down and I told them. They weren't happy about it, they think I don't know what I'm thinking about they think that since I'm 16 that I shouldn't be making this kind of decision, they told me that I should give girls a try (at this point I should let you know that my parents don't know that I have been out to my friends for quite a while and the only experience that I have had with girls is this one girl that I want out with for about two weeks and we'll just say she was as desperate as I was to find someone). So I told one of my close friends what happened and he told me that in his opinion he thinks that I'm pretty sure that I'm gay but that I shouldn't rule out being bi because I'm so young and that I haven't really had that much experience with girls. Also I should say that it is difficult for me to get involved with attractive girls because of labels (I'm "nerd/hippster" they are "popular") So in other words I don"t know if I should give girls one last try just in case or should I just say I'm bi until I'm 18 or something and come out "again".
