A while back, my friend and i made out, but we both had boyfriends.
She and I sleep together a lot (platonically), but as we're laying there, I catch myself wishing she would touch me, cuz she's so soft, or i could snuggle closer. I want to feel her skin under my hands... I don't picture myself performing any sexual acts on her, but the urge to feel skin-on-skin contact is huge.

I remember as a young girl (like 5th grade) feeling an unexpalinable urge to know girls better, and to be their friends. It was odd, but it was a very strong urge then too.

I've looked at lesbian porn before, and it's the only type of porn that turns me on. Sex with my own boyfriend turns me on as well, though.

I love my boyfriend, but do i like girls too? [Confused]

Orientation and identity can be fluid and can change over time, and it's up to you to decide how you identify. Many people spend some time (months or years) figuring out these issues for themselves. Also, just so you know, plenty of women who identify as straight want to be friends with females, and find other women attractive, and have sexual fantasies about women. Have you looked at these articles?

It's not clear to me whether you have an ongoing interest in making out with the female friend that you mentioned, but if you do, my only suggestions would be that you and your friend check in with each other to make sure you are both comfortable with what is going on, and that you are careful to honor any agreement you have with your boyfriend about relationships with other people.
