I'm so very confused at this stage. I have been for some time, but I've been trying to wait and let time figure itself and me out.
I'm a girl who's just about 20, and within the last year I had my first proper relationship with a guy. It lasted for 2 months, and it was nice to be in a relationship, but I must admit that I didn't enjoy having sex with a guy at all. And I'm certain it was the male factor, and not specifically him.
I've been vaguely wondering for years whether I might be bisexual or a lesbian, but having had no relationships at all there seemed little to base this on. For a number of months now I've been more intensely wondering after my dislike of heterosexual sex, but as I can't just grab the nearest female and see what it's like, there's no sense in trying to rush figuring myself out.
So as I've finally come to terms with being patient (this is very new for me, I like everything to be resolved quickly), and enjoying being alone and waiting happily for what the future might have in store as far as self-discovery, everyone else is busy assuming I'm heterosexual while I'm far from sure.
At this stage it seems so hard to express to others that I could likely be a lesbian. Once I'm sure of myself, I think I'll be comfortable with whatever that is, but when I'm not sure, how can I tell others that I might be in a "class" that's not entirely acceptable here? It seems very weird to express doubt in yourself, and almost like a cry for attention to say "I think I'm gay... oh wait, I'm not."
On top of that, I've constantly got people, including my parents, asking me "do you like any guys?" and one particular male friend of mine repeatedly declaring his love for me and asking why I'm not interested in him. What on earth am I supposed to say? I already tried once telling him that I'm just not interested in looking for love right now (which is partially true), but that was of no avail.
Do you have any suggestions? I'm perfectly fine with taking years to discover my own sexual orientation, but what do I do about these questions?
