I'm 15 and although many people think I am bi because it's what's in, that's really not my reason. I feel bi. Most of the time I feel completely gay. I'm not sure how to react to it kinda. I want to tell my friends and my family, but i'm not sure how. Do any of you have any suggestions? Oh and i'm new here. My name is Nichole.

Ah okay I know how you feel. Tell your clostest friend. I told my best friend that I'm nearing more lesbian than gay, and she was totally cool with it, just make sure she is a good friend, you feel a lot better once you tell

I did the same thing. I told my bestest friend. She was totally cool because her aunt is a lesbian. She said she would help me find a way to tell my mom, and she said she would even stand right next to me the whole time if I needed her to. If you have a best friend who would love you no matter what, tell her. she will undestand. Just say, "I am a lesbian...bla bla bla.....and I know you might not be comfortable with it, but you are my best friend and I want your support". That is what I told my friend, except I typed it itno a 2 page letter explainging everything. Make it easy by just telling her staight up, but that if she has any questions, she can ask you. Don't forget to tell her you want her support. That is important. It makes her feel more important. Also tell her you told her first because you trust her the most. Good luck, and if you have any more questions, or just want to talk, post more messages, and I will give you my AIM screen name(if you have AIM), and I will be replying every day, so i will always answer. I hope this helped.
