    It was somewhat reverse for me. Liking girls didn't seem that special to me, it was only when I saw other girls being somewhat repulsed by the idea of being with another girl that it really sunk in. I mean, in theory I knew that most people are only into the opposite sex....I don't know..maybe my child -self assumed that people only kept to heterosexuality due to tradition or conformity.

    Well in middle school I'd have weird feelings about certain guys; at that time I would have never thought it could be love or anything like that, I just wanted to know them more. But going through high school, I finally understood these weird feelings :icon_wink

    I knew I liked the sexual aspect of guys pretty early on. First fell emotionally for a guy at 16, and repressed it as much as possible til almost 2 years ago.

    I never really thought about it until I was 16/17, even though I was lucky enough to have a community with a large amount of LGBTQ teens. It started with just me realizing how disinterested I was in kissing or having sex with guys and then I developed a huge crush on a girl in one of my classes right before I turned 17 and that was when I really knew I definitely liked girls.

    I was 12 when I first kissed a boy. I thought that it was normal for boys to like boys that way. It wasn't until I was a teenager that I saw everyone else wasn't like that. This led me to wonder what was different about me that I just couldn't like girls like that. It wasn't until I was 17 that I realized I was gay due in part to the fact that everyone around me never acknowledged being gay as even a thing(no hatred just nonexistent).

    I basically understood my sexuality when I was 11 and fully accepted it in my late teens

    I think I was 14 when I started to question things, but pushed it away then. 18 now but still not totally sure

    In a way I've always kinda known, but I just never paid attention to it. Once the girls in my school were old enough to start obsessing over celebrities, I noticed that I was never attracted to the men that they thought were "hot", but in fifth grade I started really noticing girls...

    Always noticed guys in a different way to girls. Started questioning my sexuality when i was about 15, weirdly i used to watch gay porn at about 14 but still tried to maintain that i was heterosexual. Realised i was gay around 16

    since my early teens I noticed I had "different" feelings towards women but I never gave it much attention or second thought..
    I only started associating it with sexuality and sexual attraction when I was 18...
