Hi! I actually dealt with this from when I first came out (when I was like 16) to a couple years ago (20) I think mainly bc those around me weren’t accepting, making me obsess over whether I was lying about my sexuality. It fluctuated back and forth over time with severity of obsessions, but now things are pretty clear and I’m working on accepting the fact I’m gay. Reading this comment made me kind of emotional tbh bc that’s exactly how I felt, especially when I started coming out to people. But take it from me, if u have attraction to girls, can see yourself with a girl, you like girls haha. My straight female friends can not do this lol they have a hard time even picturing themselves with a girl. If that helps at all. But also, if it makes you feel comfortable u don’t have to put a label on things. U can tell people u aren’t sure, and then when/if u meet a girl u do have feelings for, can decide more on things then. That’s what I did for a while as well! If u have any questions I can answer them for u but that’s just some of my experience, I’m now living as an adult, accepted the fact I’m gay, and no longer have abt obsessions over that, if that offers any hope to u!
Thank you, thishelped a lot. Considering its only been a year since I've thoihjt I wasnt straight (I'm 17) I thought that because I was later than some of my friends, I was faking it. I hope that makes sense Thank you again
For some people it just takes longer to figure out!! I’ve had friends who figured out in college. And idk if ur planning on going to college/moving away but it helps SO much u have so much more freedom to experiment, and there’s less judgment so u don’t question things as much. Like I said, I had a very similar experience but these past couple of years have been life changing for me and now I have no more feelings of thinking I’m faking it. If u have any other questions lmk!!
