I think I like guys usually around 5'9"-6'6". I like hairy guys with long dark hair rounder body types. You see I really like guys with rounder bellies like not a six pack but more rounded. I like the "pretty boy" type. I have a boyfriend I'm deeply in love with is a transgender. At first we dated I didn't know but he told me before we were sexually active. To me I love him the same and it really doesn't matter because I fell in love with him and not what's inbetween his legs. The thing is he's a pre-op transguy he had his top done. I'm very much attracted to him. He's not the first transguy I've found attractive either. People act like I must be bisexual though because I'm his gf. I did when I was 12 receive oral sex from my best friend but I was way young and I really felt like I even knew at that age I wasn't attracted to girls. But it's like a high incident of the guys I like are transguys but this to me still makes me straight. I am attracted to his whole body just the same as any other guy I don't know. If I were bi would I feel like I was bisexual? I still feel like I'm straight because he's a guy. Advice?

It can get really tangly to try and figure out orientation based more on other people's gender than based on your own feelings. And certainly, how you identify your sexual orientation, if you do, is your call, not anyone else's.

I hear you saying you feel and identify as straight: do I have that right? Is that what feels right to you?

In the event you are not so sure right now, let's try this: do you generally find that you are attracted to masculinity, femininity, both, neither, or to more than that binary?
