When I first started puberty (which was around 11 years old) I sort of knew that deep down I liked guys, but I didn't want to be bullied about it so I tried to hide it from everyone and I started denying it. I even had a few girlfriends, but none of my relationships would last very long because I wasn't attracted to them (no offense to anyone, but girl parts are kind of gross).

I didn't come to terms with my sexuality until the beginning of last year, but I was 13 and I was afraid that if I told anyone they wouldn't take me seriously because I was (and still am) young. But I ended up coming out to my best friend half way through last year and she was awesome about it and really supportive :D I still haven't told my parents but at school now if people have a problem with me I just say something like:

"I'm queer,
I'm here,
Get used to it"

I was 19. A bit slow on the uptake, really. I was aware that I was attracted to guys and liked to look at them but I thought that was just normal, and just people didn't talk about it. :dunno: Had what were, in hindsight, crushes on guys but never twigged, always just assumed I would eventually meet a girl who I'd fall totally in love with.

It wasn't until I joined here that I realised the way I viewed guys is the way gay guys see guys too, and the way most guys see women. I'd never talked to anyone gay before and I fully believe that without this forum, I would still be in the closet and in denial. This place literally changed my life.

I believe that I have evolved to find true happiness with my sexual orientation. For the longest time, I was "straight." Obviously this was in elementary school when I wasn't exposed to nudity at all yet. It wasn't until halfway through 6th grade I saw a girl naked.
Funny story. It was a complete accident. My science lab partner (female) had a project to do at home. So I went over to her house. Her mom opened the door and let me in, without telling the girl. So she told me to go upstairs and find my partner. Turns out, she was actually masturbating. She and I were completely embarrassed and I just left right afterwards. She was one of those pretty girls I liked, but after seeing her naked, I began to question if girls looked like that naked. Needless to say, they do and I was not pleased with what I saw.
Ironically, one week later, my PE class had a chance to go swimming in our pool. This was my first time that I saw other guys naked, including my first guy crush, Tyler Noonan. After seeing them naked, I knew that I preferred guys over girls. Furthermore, my attraction for girls slowly died one year later.

After dozens of crushes on girls I didn't really like, I realized. I was 13 and a half then. I've been feeling attracted to boys every since (a year and 8 months)...

I never questioned it; by the time I comprehended how sexuality worked I'd already knew I was gay. I never thought I was a bit straight or anything. 100% gay all the way


And I love every bit of it.

For me I started to feel sexual attraction to other guys at 13 and I thought it was a phase but then at 14 I found myself starting to want a relationship with a guy, it became for me much more about the emotions, and for me that is what did it :)

When I was 11 I started to like men a little.

When 12 this became stronger, but I tried to deny I was gay.

Early 13s I said was I gay or straight.

Mid 13s am I bi?

End 13s I'm bi.

14 Told a friend, no going back.

Started at 11, girls just did not interest me. But seeing my friends and some older guys and then the internet, I am now pretty sure I am gay. Still haven't done anything but know guys are what I like

I think the moment I really started to doubt it was in 5th grade. We went to a local high school to see a production of H.M.S Pinafore. I saw the lead actor and I was like "Wow. He's not bad at all."

I would say I apparently was straight until 13 I think. That was when I has my first gay crush. Until then, I did have plenty of straight crushes actually. After my first gay crush, the crushes on the girls began to decrease and the crushes on the boys began to increase. At this point, I has began football and didn't want any crushes to affect me at all. Sophomore year is when I would say I was for sure bisexual and it wasn't until senior year, after 2 girlfriends, that I would say I was definitely gay. Ik I hate to be that gay that used to date girls, but it is what it is. So I was about 17 when I came out to myself as gay and vowed to never date a girl again. I was like "Stop lying to yourself. Cain!"

I first suspected something when my synchronized diving partner and I became very close friends when I was about 11. Also, I have had a fear of vaginas, ever since I saw a close up picture of one.
