Have you ever been attracted to somebody of your own gender?

    Something that I'm confused about is my sexuality. I've liked plenty of girls before, but for about 3 years have been questioning whether I am bisexual or not. I've frequently found boys attractive, and a couple of times boys have put their hand on my leg and I liked it.

    So have you ever found anyone of the same gender attractive? I'm wondering because other people in my family have told me they never did. Are they in the majority, or am I?

    Do you mean like you find them aesthetically attractive? You dont have to be bi to recognise tht, a str8 guy could recognise when 1 guy is better looking than another yeah.

    Even though I'm not sexually attracted to women in general, I was really close to a couple of girl friends in the past. There were times when I thought that I might be attracted to them. I think it was more attachment than attraction though. I was very lonely and easily attached to people. Strangely, both those girls I felt very close to in a short space of time and yet neither of those friendships lasted. . I actually cried over one of them when she wasn't in my life anymore. I guess it was more the feeling of thinking they cared but realising that they didn't. Idk.

    Well I'm a dude, I do like girls more and I expect my long term partner to be female. But I have been aroused my guys before, there was this one hot guy on TV once and well looking at him gave me a boner. Kept thinking about it for a few days after. I think I might be bi-curious but.....only one way to know for sure lol

    Yes. I've found girls attractive and I've also had an attraction to them. I've never saw it as a big deal. I'll fancy who I fancy, be it guy or girl.

    I've never found other girls attractive in the sexual way, but I do think other girls are very pretty but then again lots of them cake themselves with makeup.

    I haven't been attracted to girls in that way. But, I do find some girls attractive - in a 'I wish I looked like her' kind of way. :dontknow:

    I've had big crushes on girls, and a girlfriend. I have the same kind of attraction to women as I do men. It depends on the kind of attraction, I guess. Many straight women find other women attractive, but not as far as to want to be with them

    Thing is, does it really matter? I mean attraction is very much a subjective thing. And 3 years contemplating your sexuality is just unnecessary stress, i know this may sound cliche-like but do you really HAVE to label yourself a certain category. If you find a girl attractive don't waste time, enjoy that feeling and if it is strong act on it. Just one more cliche , you only live once, it doesnt matter if people share the same experience, it's YOU who feels it, you don't need an emotional consent ---- wow, what a ramble, hope you get my drift

    Yes, especially if they look like Rylan-Neal Clark or whatever his name is from Big Brother.

    OP again.

    It's kinda like I see a photo of a boy/girl I know in a relationship, and I usually admire the boy more than the girl. Or I'll get chatting to a gay boy at college and get excited. My dad has told me that he "never, ever remotely thought about boys" at my age.

    There was a case in Bath about a year ago where I saw this teenage guy walking past, got extremely excited, and was thinking about him for several days. On the other hand the same has happened with girls.

    Emotionally I've always felt more attached to girls but physically I seem to think about guys more, and don't know why.
