I've always considered myself bisexual. I've always thought women were attractive and have had nice relationships with them.I've also thought the same about men. The other day my girlfriend decided to get naked for me. This was the first time a girl has ever done this for me. The problem, while nice-looking, I didn't get too attracted. This has nvr happened to me with guys before. Does this mean I'm gay?

I wouldn't say so given that info--your experience with one woman doesn't make a statement about your relationships with all womankind. It could simply be that you two just don't have that "chemistry".

But, you could be gay. That's something you'll have to discover for yourself.

Thx. I guess it's just that I always thought she was attractive and she has the best brests I have ever known, and I felt really nothing sexually.

Bear in mind that not being attracted, in a given moment, to one person of one gender at one time isn't a sound reason to presume that you're thus attracted to MANY people of the other gender most of the time.

Think about it.

(I say this a lot here, but it's worth repeating: being gay isn't about NOT being attracted to the opposite sex. It's about BEING strongly emotionally and physically attracted to the same sex.)
