i grew up thinking i was straight, but around 11 yrs old i became questioning. but i'd still tell people i was straight (it didn't feel right though). i only had boy crushes, but sometimes, i'd feel flustered around a girl (but i was lacking those butterflies in my stomach), and sometimes i'd notice how pretty they are, or how well their eyes complimented their hair, and i couldn't stop staring at them. and sometimes, in movies, i'd stare at the girl, not the boy, but i didn't feel romantically attracted to them. but i would kiss a boy and i would kiss a girl. but i'd only date a guy -- i feel attraction unevenly for both genders, but i think attraction is there for both. could i be a heteroromantic bisexual? or bi-curious? or just questioning ? please help <3

Hey,Β 

I would love to help you figure this out but I'm just as confused as you are! I only started questioning when I turned 17 and since then I have noticed an increasing attraction to Women. I always only thought I would romantically date a man up until pretty recently! Lately, I have entertained the thought of dating a girl and have become comfortable with that thought. This confusion will probably change and maybe become easier as you get older!Β 

Hope I could help!Β

Hi there, I’m Blondie, one of the support mentors.

Its completely possible to be bisexual but experience an uneven attraction between guys and girls. A lot of people can find they are quite fluid in their attractions and might be sexually attracted to one gender and only romantically attracted to another.

I think it’s a positive to be open to a relationship based on your attraction to a person - what do you think?

This is so relatable. I'm literally going through the exact same thing right now, so it's glad to know I'm not alone XD. My advice is that if you have a suspicion that you're bi, you probably are. Go with your instincts, and remember that what "bisexual" means to me might not be what "bisexual" means to you.
