My parents were separated while I was very young and I was left to my dad's care together with my brothers. My mother would visit us every few years for a short time and call sometimes to check on us. When I was in college, I was so close with my girl besfriend that we would always hang out at her house. Her grandma one time told me out of nowhere that she thinks I'm missing an affection from a woman or a mother.. At that time, I haven't given much thought about myself being lesbian or bi. In my head, I was like is she insulting me or does she think I like her granddaughter? But as years passed by, I feel somehow growing up without my mother at my side all the time did made a huge factor of how I am today. Sorry for the long introduction, but how about you guys? Is not having enough affection or feeling not enough love from one of your parents contributed to you being gay?
