    Since I was 17 I've thought that I was aromantic due to my physical romantic repulsion to men and have been stuck that way since. I'm not ace I don't think though my drive is pretty low. However, lately I've caught myself thinking that I may be romantically attracted to females rather than men and I've always found the majority of females more attractive than the majority of men which is a tad confusing as you can probably guess. So now I have no idea what my sexuality is and its quite concerning... Any insights?

    Tiogair Hey and welcome! For some people attractions can be pretty fluid over our lifetime. I would definitely being open to going on a date with a female to see if there is a spark. You don't have to have a firm label on your sexuality so take your time with the journey.

        I have put myself in a situation that will haunt me for the rest of my life. I don’t even know why I did it.. but when my boyfriend and I broke up I decided to sell nudes. I am 17, someone bought from me and when they sent me the money I realized that he was someone from school. He texted me saying that I could trust him, but I knew that I couldn’t. He ended up showing a group of people I used to be friends with. During this time my boyfriend and I fixed things, and got back together, I was scared to tell him so I kept it a secret. Yesterday one of the people who saw made a new Instagram account and sent the video to my boyfriend. I feel that I did this all to myself. I don’t even think that I want to live anymore. I lost someone I loved, and my life. I don’t want to tell my mom because it would just be worse. I feel alone. I have no friends, my ex hates me and doesn’t want to be with me again. I feel lost
