    I dont find myself attracted to women I dont even see a women as been attractive cause I dont see them that way. I see men very attractive, suppose its in my nature. I see girls as friends dont find them good looking or look at them that way where as I do with men.
    I suppose everyone is different, and has different views on the issue but everyone is different.

    I know I'm gay, but there are times when I see a girl and I actually find myself attracted to them. It's rare (say once a month) and it doesn't last long, but it's confusing as hell! I've only recently came out to my friends and family and I have always been certain that I like guys, however, I find myself getting the occasional 'girl crush'.

    I'm assuming straight people may sometimes have the odd crush on those of the same sex. A few of my straight male friends have admitted to a few guys they find hot...

    Do any of you straight girls find another girl attractive sometimes, e.g. Megan Fox, Elisha Cuthbert or whoever it is the majority of straight guys seem to like these days.

    Are we all a little bit bisexual?
    I ain't gonna go into my views on orientation as I'm quite narrow minded on the subject but if you're attracted to girls

    YOU'RE NOT GAY!

    I don't really view sexuality as a set of boxes (ie either "straight", "bi" or "gay" ), but more like a continuum between points. So say you're mostly on the "attracted to the same sex" side, but not completely, so you still get the odd crush on people of the opposite sex. It's not that odd. I'm straight, and the same thing happens to me some times, because I'm mostly on the "attracted to opposite sex" side, but not entirely.

    Line goes like this:

    "straight"---------------------------------------------"gay"

    And everyone has a place somewhere on it.

    :ditto: this

    OP it's perfectly normal people are just attracted to people they're attracted to, not necessarily one group or another

    I'd like to add to this (rather conveniently pre-typed post - thanks, Heranje, you summarised my thoughts exactly) by saying that your position on the line is not set in stone. It can move up and down throughout your life.

    I think the term you're looking for is "bisexual". nothing wrong with that.

    If it's just the really hot one's you find attractive then its probably to do with biology and being attracted to the opposite sex as everything is

    I'm straight. However I can still see a guy and find him attractive in the sense that, if I was gay, it would work
