Hey !
Many many MANY people who identify as straight have some kinds of curiosities or feelings for somebody of the same gender at some point in their lives. Many people have at least one 'homosexual experience' in their lifetime, whether that be thinking about it, watching gay porn, kissing, having sex...anything like that. It is completely normal to have these thoughts or feelings even if you're straight.

Be well!

Musicboy, what you're going through is quite common during early to mid puberty. I know that from reading books about adolescence.

I also know it 'cos when I was 14 there was a boy called Bruce in my class who was gay with another boy during that year. But they acted like normal 14 year olds; they weren't sissies. Anyway, Bruce has been happily married with kids for 12 years now.

Recently, I saw where another boy I knew in my neighborhood is now a dad at 23. Now he ACTUALLY DID sound a bit girlish from about age 10 to 16. But, again, he WASN'T gay after all.

Also, just think about your reasons WHY you say you are a straight boy. Remember, puberty is the most unusual time of your life, where your brain is going through many big changes. So of course your feelings are gonna wander off in different directions for a year or two.

I just want to clear up a few things,
1. Don't worry if you find another guy attractive, it doesn't necessarily mean your gay.
2. Just because someone is gay, it doesn't mean that they are girly.
3. You can't choose your sexuality. You can't choose to be gay or choose to be straight, that is just who you are.

With all of that in mind I think labels suck. I believe you fall in love with a person and not there gender, so I might fall in love with another girl, even thought I consider myself to be straight.

Don't stress, the fantasies might stop or they might not. Just figure out what you believe and go from there. I hope this was helpful and I am sorry if it wasn't.

The same thing has happened to me. I kind of just admitting to myself that Im bi cause it never went away. You don't have to label anything or anything like that. It normal to have a period of time where your attracted to someone of the same sex

Nothing! That's completely normal.

It's perfectly fine to have fantasties and they're actually healthy for you.

I don't believe in labels and I don't believe there's such a thing as a straight person. You are who you are and you're human. Don't worry about it.

If you ever want to talk just pm me.

Hope I've been of help
