Hi! Wow, it feels so odd to actually write that. So first off, I'd like to say I love this site so much, it's been really helpful for me. I'm a newbie, and I've just come out of the closet..to myself, and my best friend.

So, this is my question, where do I go from here? I feel like I should be doing something that I'm not. Whats the next step?

Is there anything really that needs to be done? To my knowledge, not really. As long as you've become comfortable with your bisexuality...just be happy! Embrace it! Love it! Take it to dinner one night! Or, maybe i'm going a bit overboard

I'm happy you've come to terms with it...as that's really a tough thing to do. I know I've racked my brian many a-times about it and i'm happy I've realized the truth.

If you really need a next step, though... maybe it's opening up to more people. Is that what you want? And more importantly, are you ready for that leap? If you are... than keep on trucking, girl! If you're not... than, take a deep breath and wait for the time that you are. No need to rush sexuality, as it's like a flower....it needs to blossom. Aw, how sweet of an analogy But...stay true to yourself and good luck in whatever the future is bringing you!


I've finally stopped biting my nails,
Veronica

You might want to meet other teens dealing with the same stuff as you. Finding a queer youth group is a great way to make new friends. I don't know exactly where you live, but there is probably one somewhere near you. If you live in San Francisco (well, I can guess one city in CA), try LYRIC.

Lol, we all know that feeling really well! Welcome to scarleteen babe, there's a wealth of information in the gaydar section (and even here in the message boards). You may want to start coming out to more people, maybe you wantt o tell your family, maybe you want to get involved in the community (which is the funnest, in my opinion). Find a GBLT center around you and see what programs they have for the youth (they probably have a youth group or game night or movie night or something). It's a great way to meet people, and talk about issues that you all face all the time. And of course, if you have any questions, post here. We won't bite...unless of course you ask us to
