    I've always thought of myself as being straight, probably because it's considered 'the norm' if that's the right way to put it (I don't intend to offend anyone), but I have a few friends that are either lesbian or bi and sometimes we would joke about things like that and they question my sexuality aswell as me, asking me once or twice to 'say in a scale of one to ten how straight I am' (just as a jokey kind of question, not maliciously or anything like that).
    What would make me think I'm straight is that I sometimes find males attractive or whatever, but it's moreso based on personality rather than looks, and I would probably more often find myself looking at girls in that kind of way. And I feel I'm more comfortable around girls than I would be around boys, but I'm not comfortable around many people so that maybe doesn't help.
    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    You really don't want us to label your sexuality for you, let's be honest here.

    There is no rush to label yourself. Honestly, don't let it bother you, and just go with the flow.
