Questioning my sexuality again

davcr0ckdavcr0ck OxfordshirePosts: 33 Cool Newbie
So last week (around Thursday, Friday) I started question if I'm actually gay or not, so one the Saturday, I went to an lgbt support group and I talk what was going on in my head, they just sayed like I haven't discovered my true sexuality and one of the transgender boys offered to dress me in full drag over the summer (which I'm looking forward to, I did dress up in drag an few times) I've also never had an relationship in my life (when straight and gay) so I was wondering if anyone else had any advice.

    Hi, 

    I don't have much advice on the practical side of it. But I would say, don't put too much pressure on yourself trying to figure out your sexuality. Sometimes we get too caught up in trying to put a label on things/ourselves we become blindsided or just become overly stressed/worried. I don't know too much on the topic but maybe if you experimented it would help you discover but by all means don't pressure yourself. Just do what you enjoy doing or what feels right. 

    I also attach a link to switchboard which is run by LGBT+ volunteers if you want to talk to someone confidentially or just another persons opinion outside of your support group, friends, family or here on The Mix. https://switchboard.lgbt/

    Hello @davcr0ck ,

                    For sure you are not the only person who doubts about that and I agree with @mags98 ; that you should't put so much pressure  on yourself. 

                  You know, everything comes when time comes  :)  teenagers do not know who to be in future and for some people it takes years to understand and it's normal. Our life is changable as well as we are and to be not sure about your sexuality or smth else is natural because it's life) 
                   Can you answer the question..why it is so important fo you to be defined?

    Hey @Valerialetto
    Thanks for your respond, in response to your question, it important to because I just want answers, I've been questioning sinse year 9 (I'm now year 12) and I generally thought my label being gay was the answer.

    Thanks again for the reply

    Hey :)

    Personally, I wouldn't worry about a label. Love who you love - it doesn't need to be more complicated than that!x

    Much love <3
