I've been in denial. - March 13th 2012, 09:29 PM

I've been in denial about my sexuality for a long time now. But truth is I do have an attraction to girls as well as boys. My first kiss was with a girl, and we got quite into it, and ever since I've liked girls in that way. I like boys too, but I have some STRONG attraction to girls. I just want to do what I did with this girl again, but I'm scared of telling people "Oh btw I'm bisexual", cause then I'll have loads of people judging me, but at the same time I want people to know so I don't have to hide that about myself and I'd have more of a chance of getting with a girl. I'm just not sure what to do.


Forgive and forget. Forget you ever existed, and forgive myself for being so fucking stupid.

It depends on what your the most confortable with. You don't have to tell everybody, just people you are close to and trust, first. Also, you'll find someone, don't worry! Being uber out or just minimal out, you'll find someone. (Maybe the girl you kissed?)


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

Yeah I would only tell people I hang out with, but it's bound to get around. I dunno I just really want to find a girl, had too many bad times with guys the past year :') The girl I kissed I lost contact with

You don't need to tell anybody unless it's something you're really comfortable with people knowing. You could maybe go to a local lgbt youth group if there's one near where you live? They can be a great way to find people =)

Hey.

LGBT is one of the acronyms used to describe the queer community. In this case it stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered, but other letters can also be added, such as I for Intersex, Q for Questioning, and A for Asexual. Some people affectionately call it Alphabet Soup simply because there's so many letters.

As for your original question, I know it can be hard when you're starting to come to terms with your sexuality. Having someone to talk to about it can really help. Maybe start with just telling a close friend, and see how they react. Chances are they'll be able to help you figure out where to go from here. And if they're really your friend, if you tell them not to tell anyone else, they'll respect that, so you shouldn't have to worry about other people finding out until you're ready.

Good luck.


throw yourself into the unknown
with pace & a fury defiant.

Having someone to support you is one of the best things that you can have during the process of coming to terms with your sexuality. For now, you might want to start out slow. Tell a close friend and see what happens. There's absolutely no rush for you to tell people and you shouldn't do it until you're completely comfortable with the idea of it. Eventually, you'll be comfortable enough in your sexuality to be able to share it with others without fear. I hope this helped.


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.
