Hi. I've got a question. I'm 15 and I am unsure of my sexuality. I like guys and some girls. I have a serious crush on a girl, but this is sort of unrelated to my question. I'm kind of confused about "who" (in terms of sex) I like. I seem to like both, but I'm also unwilling to commit to both. I have my doubts about being both straight and a lesbian. So my question is: Is it okay if I tell people I'm Bi, even if I'm unsure. I know in time (and with more sexual experience and exposure) I'll truly know if I'm a Lesbian or straight or Bi. But when people ask me, I don't know what to tell them. So I simply tell them I'm both (Bi). Is this okay? Or am I commiting a wrong?

There's nothing wrong with telling people how you feel at this time. If you don't want a lot of explaining to do, there's nothing wrong with saying you're bi. Or you could say you're open, or questioning. Sexuality can change, so the best you can do is explain how you see yourself at the moment.

Yes, it's perfectly fine to tell people how you feel, b/c like Rizzo said...sexuality can change. There's no wrong being committed telling people that you are bi, b/c that's what you are feeling about your sexuality at this present time.

I'd just say "Im pansexual." Most likely they wont even know what that is! pansexuality is basically being open- minded. Willing to do anything. Not afraid to fall in love with either sex, not limiting themselves.
