Well, you're female, and the people you're attracted to are male. That would make you heterosexual, yes .

Actually, quite a few women are attracted to men who don't behave in stereotypically "masculine" ways. Many of the "theatrical type" are gay, but plenty are straight or bi (in fact, the campest guy I know happens to be straight).

Obviously, if you're only ever falling for men who aren't attracted to women, then you've got a practical problem. But there's no reason why you can't find men who are your "type" and who are straight or bi.

I fall for gay guys a lot too. In fact, before I went out with him, I thought my current partner was gay, but pursued him anyway. Haha, not that I'd generally recommend that, but you never know. Also, one of my male friends who seems to be about as gay as they come (he dances, speaks in a high voice, wears skirts and jewelry in public) in actually straight.

Keep trying, not all straight men are macho

first off- mad props on the name "regulafrankiefan" i love that movie, i've seen it like 12 times and gone to see the play twice and Columbia is my fave character!!! And secondly, i know exactly what you mean, because it happens to me a lot too. like right now, i'm trying to get on the crew for a play cuz this major hottie who was in the play (RHPS) here is gonna be in it. but anyway, enough about me, back to the issue at hand. I think this happens because we like guys who are creative and romantic and charming and who share some common ground with us and someone who will listen to us talk and someone we can really just be ourselves with. But then again, thats just my guess, but i know how it is, none the less. you seem pretty cool. so if you have any other questions, or want to talk about anything feel free to email me: --edited--. well thats all for now check ya later!!!

Per the guidelines, please do not post your email address or other contact information here. Thank you.
