I’m just confused

By Anonymous August 23, 2018 - 3:45pm

So I have no ever been attracted to girls at all. Never and I’m still not. But for some reason I feel like I might be gay. I really want to shake this feeling, I’m not homophobic, I actually really support LGBTQ but I feel super worried that maybe I am gay and I don’t like it. And I really don’t want to be. Is this just me overthinking (because I’m not even attracted to girls) or real. I have been spending a lot of time with my gay friends and helping out my teacher that is also gay a lot lately and the whole reason I’m worried is because I was wondering what it’s like to be gay then I just wondered, what if I am and now I can’t get rid of this thought. Help

Hello Anon
Thank you for writing.
You said you're not attracted to women but didn't mention if you're attracted to males or not. But you spend a lot of time with gay males. Maybe you're gay.
Or if you have no sexual feelings either way you could be asexual. Or you may be young and not ready to explore your sexuality yet. We can't say if you are gay but I think deep down you may know a little more than you think.
Therapy could help you sort these feelings through.
