    Hey,

    Okay, my friend thinks that she is bisexual, but she says she is not sure. I'm sat with her now and she just wants help to find herself.

    I can see that it's upsetting her because she thinks she likes this girl ( to me they seem like good mates) but her parents are strict. Therefore, she is getting stressed out, and upset.

    So is there anyone who could give her some advise, on how to find herself or about your experiences. Thank you.

    Stay calm.

    If she's been looking up stuff about the LGBTQ+ community then it's likely she'll have seen alot of things from America. Now I'm not saying that the UK is perfect but being not-straight over here is generally safer.

    Also, remember that nearly all parents just want what's best for their child so, if done properly, her mum will probably be very supportive!

    Also also, she has you! One of the most important things when realising you may not be completely heterosexual is support and love from your friends. It's much easier to uunderstand ones self when you have support!

    Finally, I hope she understands that it's not a bad thing! If anything it just makes her more loving and open, caring more about personality than gender!

    I wish her luck and all the best!

    Sincerely,

    Thank you for your reply. My friend read your message and told me to put this " hey! Thank you for the advise. I'm still unsure about telling my parents, but if I do then as you said they should be supportive. Thanks again."
