Hi Frankie!

Being romantically attracted to someone is different to being sexually attracted to someone. Romantic orientations (eg. heteroromantic, homoromantic, biromantic, panromantic, aromantic) are often paired with sexual orientations (e.g. heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, asexual) so if you're romantically attracted to both guys and girls, but only sexually attracted to girls, then you could be biromantic (the romantic aspect of bisexuality) homosexual/lesbian. Of course, it is up to you whether you choose to label yourself as such. Hope this helped! ^^

Hey ma'am,

Some of us are confused from time to time, some of us take a little longer to figure ourselves out.
I think it's important that you be you. If it's with a guy, or if it's with a girl. Whatever it is that makes you happy. Be fair to your partners. If you're with someone talk to them about what you feel.


Revenge is a poison meant for others that we end up swallowing ourselves.
Vengeance is a dark light that blinds all who seek it.
The untroubled soul knows there is no justice in revenge.
The untroubled soul knows that to seek vengeance, is to seek destruction.

It's always possible that you are at least a little bi - maybe you're "mostly" a lesbian, but also at times biromantic. I think it is important to note that sexuality is fluid, so it is possible that, at times, you might find yourself attracted to men, but only in a romantic way. I have often felt the same in reverse - I am straight, have never been interested in dating anyone who's not physically a male, but yet I sometimes felt like I was attracted to women in a romantic way (I liked girls faces and their curves and boobs and thought I'd like the emotional aspects of being with a girl but had noooo interest in it beyond the idea, you know, ultimately I only wanted to be with a man romantically and sexually, you know). I hope this helps.
