    I am bi. a few years ago I would have seaid I am straight. The part of me that likes woman is easy to deal with; then there is the part that likes men ,that for years had been so easy to tuck away. The fact is you can't run away from your self. I had gay sex this morning for the first time in months; it felt awsome and needed. Still it takes nothing from my love attraction and effection towards woman

    Great post. Exactly how I'm feeling right now. I know I'm gay, but I still try to fight it. The battle with myself and the inability to connect with others has eroded my emotional health.... and as of now, I hope it can heal without leaving a scar. Only time will tell...

    Simply Brilliant... so well thought out and easily understood. I agree with someone else who said it, this should be a sticky. :slight_smile:

    Wow. Some of this post resonates a little with me, particularly the whole "wife and kids" vs "I'm I gay". But I've gotta say that this has opened my eyes to the fact that I'm not the only who thinks this way. I'm still in denial about the whole thing and still really can't come to terms with it but reading the original post made realize a few things

    I was in this situation a few months ago. I tried to date girls because I was attempting to prove to myself I was straight. I had no trouble finding girls to date, but I was never happy with the ones i was with. I wasn't attracted to them, I just wanted to be what I thought of as "normal" and go out with these girls. When it all failed, I had concluded that I was simply too young and I couldn't experience the full pleasure of dating, all the while pushing the thoughts that i might be gay into the back of my mind. It wasn't until I joined a seperate community, with a large population of LGBTs that showed me being gay was actually normal, that I accepted my sexuality. I have felt the happiest in my life since accepting it and I urge you out there in the situation described in OP to realize the happiness acceptance of the self can bring.

    It just puts words to so many uncompleted thoughts that I had a year ago. So wonderfully worded to fit almost any situation.

    As someone who has been repressing feelings for over 8 years for not wanting to feel attraction towards women, this really hit home. It wasn't until about 2 years ago that I started allowing myself to freely think of the possibility of me being attracted to women. It hasn't been until very recently that I've started to "come out to myself". I've been denying and repressing for so long. It's done nothing but cause so much anxiety and pain. I'm here to try and sort through these feelings and emotions, so I can get to a place to fully accept who I am, and love me for it. This post hit me so hard. Thank you, so much.
