I feel like I might be bisexual, but not because I feel
sexually attracted to people of the same gender, just emotionally and
physically (like thinking a girl is REALLY good looking, you know?). I don't
want things to get awkward with the other kids at school, but it's hard to be
myself around them.
My friends are guys, so what if I am bisexual and they start
cracking jokes or act weird around me? I tried talking to my mom, but she
changed the subject after five minutes. I don't know what to do or who to talk
It sounds like you have a lot of sexual confusion, which is
totally normal! Many adolescents question their sexuality. And even if you’re
not bisexual, it’s normal to notice that girls are pretty, and to enjoy being
around females for emotional support. That’s what friends are for!
It’s OK to be unsure of your sexuality, but it’s important
to surround yourself with people who you can be yourself with and who
appreciate you for who you are. If your guy friends don’t realize your awesomeness,
then maybe ya need to make some girl friends, too. It’s good to have friends
and mentors who you can talk to about this stuff, but it’s also important to
talk to your parents. Sometimes moms don’t really get it the first time—try
broaching the subject again or else talk to your school counselor for tips on
how to chat with your parents.
