When you 'realised' that you were a lesbian/bisexual/not-straight, did it feel confusing to you, or did it feel 'right' from the start???
I don't really remember there being 'confusion' as such, when I realised for the first time that I was attracted to other girls. It did surprise me a little, but it never felt wrong, or like it was something bad, or something to be worried about.
When I first started questioning, that was probably around the time that it felt "right" to me. However, at that time it completely terrified me. For some reason I had it stuck in my mind that if I admitted to myself that there was any sort of attraction to the same gender, it would be along the same lines of cheating on DF. So, needless to say, I was totally confused and in complete denial.
I actually, literally cannot remember a time when I WASN'T attracted to girls... Seriously, I had fantasies as a friggin 5-year-old. LOL. So, I guess it's always felt natural - the only confusion that I've really ever had was learning that it was something I had to hide from my family.
I remember earlier on having feelings, but not really understanding them and not really giving it much thought. Now, looking back though, I know I had feelings really early on. I didn't admit it to myself until after my first kiss with a girl at 13, and then it just felt really right. I wasn't confused, but didn't want anyone to know.
