    I came out to my parents as Bisexual a little while ago but I am not really sure if that is true. My first relationship was with a non-binary person who had female anatomy. I was really attracted to them and had a strong emotional bond with them. But I have been attracted to men all my life. I catch my self staring at beautiful women but I can not tell if it is because they are pretty or if I am attracted to them. It really stresses me out because I do not get the same feelings that I get with handsome men that I get with women. It's not that I don't get feelings its just different and I can't tell what I am feeling.

    Hey thereredpanda130

    Thanks for reaching out to us for support - we can definitely help you through this. I completely get why you're feeling frustrated. It can be quite difficult when we feel like we don't know our own identity, and everyone feels this way at some point. The best bit of advice I can give right now is to know that this will get better over time, but that you have to be patient with it. I can guess that you probably want to know right now which I totally get, but these things take time. Why don't you try to enjoy the ride a little bit more by exploring this side of yourself further?

    Also, I'm curious to know, when you stare at a beautiful woman and a beautiful man, do you feel differently?

        I get butterflies when I am close to both an attractive male and/or female. But I have always been really shy with everyone.

            Actually to be honest I have no sexual attraction to men at all but I do like them romanticly. I have both sexual and romantic attraction towards women though. Gah, I am so confused.

                Thanks for getting back in touch and for letting me know more about what's going on for you

                It's interesting that you are romantically attracted to both men and women, but only sexually attracted to women. With that in mind, do you think that there's a label that's right for you? But, on the other side, do you think that you need a label right now? I'm only asking because the label can be hard for some people, and if you don't really need it, then it could be a good idea to try to accept the uncertainty for now. Let me know what you think!
