    I wouldn't have probably ever explored that side of myself if I hadn't made a conscious effort. It would have been so much easier to be straight, and I like boys so it wouldn't have been difficult. But I really sat down and began to explore and evaluate my sexuality and honestly I found so much more than what I had before. I can't imagine going back.

    It was in school when I realized I liked both boys and girls.

    I experimented when I was around 13 but I sort of ignored it for years. I guess I’ve really known most of my life but I’ve only accepted it for about a year

    I remember when I was 10 and my dad hired a pretty attractive nanny... which resulted in me constantly thinking “wow I wanna kiss her “ and those feelings for gals never faded

    The straw that broke the camel's back, as it were, on admitting I was bi to myself was recognizing I was having the same gut punch insta-crush reaction to a male YouTube singer that I'd have towards other certain female singers/stars.

    For me it was only in my mid-twenties when my then bi-les fiance started introducing gay fantasies during lovemaking. Before that I had no idea about my homosexual side. But once I was introduced to it there was no turning back, and it has grown ever stronger...to the point where sexually it is the more dominant part of my sexuality. Now, even though labeling myself as a gay man does not feel right due to my attraction to women, I'm fine with associating myself with being gay when the term embraces any position in the sexual spectrum that is not straight.

    I realized when I was in my teens but refered to my self as a straight guy that just occasionally had sex with guys. Many years later I admitted to my self I was bi then a few years later admitted to others.

    I think I started noticing guys when I was in college, but I was in denial for a long time. One of the first guys that really got me going was Ryan Sheckler. He was a skateboarder who had a reality show on MTV. I never really liked skateboarding, never really liked reality shows, and never really liked MTV, but I watched.

    I didn't figure it out until around the time i graduated college. I was questioning for a bit, thinking about certain events over the years, and came to the conclusion that I was indeed bisexual. I was both shocked with myself but also relieved that I finally knew what was going on.
