    Questioning & confused... advice please!

    2
    I’m a 20 something female and I identify as female. I’ve never been in a relationship but I’m confused about who I would want to be with. I’ve been sexually attracted to men in the past, have had a few crushes, but I also find myself imagining what it would be like with a woman, can’t recall any female crushes. I don’t know if that’s because I’ve never been with either… or if...

    Coming out to my dad...

    First, slightly complex background. I am struggling with my sexuality. I say polysexual but I'm really just into guys and agender folk. More comfortable with Polysexual though since that isn't always true. I came out as FTM trans and want to transition to male but am agender (subgender to be exact). So long story short, I'm mostly just a gay guy.My dad and I aren't close at all. He came into my...

    I grew up a seriously rough childhood with all the above types of abuse. Sexual,physical,mental and emotional abuse. I have constantly had things happen to me and never feel like I can catch a break in life. My first ever sexual encounter on my own was when I was 5 years old with my best friend,my partner in crime and my confidant. Well I got taken away from my mom to live with my father at 5...

    Married and confused

    Married to a pretty decent guy. But, having feelings about my sexuality. I considered myself bi most of my life. (Although, I never came out to family) I've been through so much.... The last five years or so have been the most stable I've been... And I've been sorting myself out. Wrestling with demons... Past abuse... I think I'm gay. I haven't had sex with my husband in months and we rarely have...

    Just came out, In need of reassurance

    2
    I came out to a few of my close friends and family as bi (pansexual specifically) but haven't been receiving the response I was expecting. I know it's kind of an unknown/awkward topic to talk about but it feels like my coming out hasn't even been acknowledged, but merely brushed off. Like nothing negative was said but neither was anything positive. I feel dumb bringing it up again because I don't...

    I am annoyed

    I have been struggling with my sexuality for two years and trying to figure out what my feelings mean and where I am in the community and I have finally come to understand and accept that I am bisexual. I'm very comfortable with it myself but I don't think that my family will be. I have tried several times to tell my mother that I am bisexual but when I step out of the closet she just shoves me...

    discovering my sexuality

    I am a teenage girl and I am still discovering my sexuality. I have previously assumed that I was straight but am now thinking that I am bisexual. I have told some of my gay friends but am worried to tell anyone else. It isn't that theyre homophobic, but since I'm still not sure, I don't want to come out as bi and then be like oops nevermind false alarm. I would like any advice!!!

    Gender

    I've been struggling with my gender. I love being called a boy, using he/him pronouns, but I have mostly girl friends, say things like "thats so cute", or "it's so snazzy". WHAT AM I!!!! I have been using Demiguy because it seems all the other boys are rowdy, loud, and crazy, and I'm quiet and introverted. (though going as LJ has made me feel so euphoric though) can I be a non-binary demiguy? I...

    Not sure if lesbian

    Im a 15 year old female. I have crushes who are male, but for some reason, I just feel... sexually attracted, I guess is the word, to girls. I want to get married, and have children, and everything like that. But, I want to have a relationship with another female. I know that it doesn't really fit with the "Coming Out" group, but it's the only group for Lesbian and Gay. What I'm asking for help...
