Being pushed away because of my sexuality Watch

This is sad to say, but ever since I came out and told my best friends that I was a lesbian, they have started to avoid me. My best (like BEST) friend who I trusted the most has stopped inviting me to sleepovers etc and rarely hangs round with me. I'm not a particularly sociable person, so making new friends isn't really an option. I have no idea how to act. My first impulse was just to cry and then it was to rant for about 10 minutes straight. Neither of these are sensible I realise.
It's sad. I'm hardly going to ask my friends out! That'd be so weird. But they act as though I'm going to attack them any second.
Is it better to go solo and look friendless and pathetic or have friends who don't appreciate me?

You're doing fine. You've let your emotions out for a sensible amount of time - like about 10 minutes - and then the logical half of your brain has taken over and is working on where do you go from here.

Most of your friends will come around, given time. When they realise that you're the same person that you've always been and that your personal sexual preferences are no big deal and not really any of their business anyway.

You may want to work on being a little bit more outgoing. As that's the best thing you can do to make some new friends. Which would be quite handy right now. You will naturally become more self confident in front of other people as you grow older. Going off to 6th form college or uni or to a new job is a great time to reinvent yourself.

You should talk to your friend and have a proper chat to get some closure. If they choose not to be there to support you then they are hardly your friend. People come and go and even if it seems like you cannot make friends now, the right group will come along someday, try to reach out to people first instead of them coming to you. What do you have to lose right? And if they dont want to talk to you then it’s their loss

Trust is like dry sand, it crumbles over time, a poor foundation for any relationship.
