    I will be going to university near September 2017.
    I consider myself as bisexual but have doubts. i want to know when meeting new friends at university, should i ever bring this up when getting to know them or make friends first then tell them?
    I've lost friends in the past due to my sexuality and ever since then i have been scared to tell people. i want to be myself at university. How should i go around it?

    Cheers!

    You don't have to if you don't want to. If anyone asks then you can tell them.

    You should definitely join your LGBT society if there is one.

    Universities tend to be more liberal minded places than most, especially when it comes to LGBT people. A lot of people go away to university and then come out at uni (a few of my friends did). You can tell people if you want, or you can not. It is entirely your choice, but the vast majority of people will not care either way.

    Make friends, just tell them at the right time , and if they are your friends they will stay your friends if not they were never meant to be in your life for long , just like a passing cloud 😊

    People at uni are more open-minded, so I wouldn't bother even thinking about it.
