Well first of all I would just like to say, I hope no-one here is going to judge me... ;/ but anyway,
hello everyone...well I've been thinking of this for about 2 years now, I'm 14 years old and maybe mixed up with my sexuality/gender? :S
Well since I was little I acted like a boy, I always liked boy stuff etc I have had boyfriends in the past...but on the internet, on some online games I would always play as a boy and there are other people who go on there, (habbo hotel) and when I first played on this game I was 10 years old, and like I just saw it as fun...and I would get a girlfriend and they didn't know I was a girl in real life and as time has passed, I have been pretty addicted to this game and being a boy and like...ugh it's pretty hard to explain, sorry if nobody gets what I'm trying to say but I've been like chatting to all of these people on here, and I've dated a lot of girls over the internet and they were thinking I was a boy and I had feelings for them, I guess...
There's more to say but it's just all hard to what do you guys think?...

I don't feel so much attracted to boys but in real life I have a huge crush on one guy...and yeah like I said I've said boyfriends in the past...

So what do you guys think is up with me?
Bisexual...? :S

Thanks. [Smile] x

Pretending to be someone you're not online is actually a pretty common thing; part of the draw of the internet is that you don't have to be you, you can be someone of the opposite sex, someone older, someone younger, etc.

Do you find yourself having any sexual feelings or romantic feelings toward gals in real life? Classmates, friends, random people on the street? If no, it's probably safe to say you aren't bisexual or gay.

(Also, if it's OK with you, I'd like to move this thread to Orientation and Identity. I think it'd fit better there)
