I'm 13 now but for the past 2-3 years i have been wondering if i'm bisexual. I like guys but i also like women. I don't want to tell anyone or talk to anyone about it because i worried that they won't accept me, but i carn't help who i am. My friends might think i'm weird and may fall out with me but i hope they will accept me for who i am.

If you find yourself attracted to both genders, then you are bisexual! Don't be scared. I know people can be close-minded and slow to accept new things. But if someone loves you then it won't change after you tell them. I told my friends much earlier than I told my mom. It was difficult. And she was only surprised but not angry. I know not all parents are the same, so all I can do is wish you luck. It's not necessary to tell everyone if you do not wish, but if you find it's eating you up inside, maybe being honest is better!

Only you can know what your orientation is, but a bisexual person is generally romantically and sexually attracted, to some degree, to either both men and women or to people of all genders.

And by all means, based on all the study we have on orientation, we know that for the most part, we are all just how we are: our orientation is not something we can control or willfully change, even though we obviously all get to choose who we do or don't pursue sexual and/or romantic relationships with.

No one has to share what their orientation is with anyone they don't want to or before they really feel ready to do that and like that's something they want to do.
