    Haha love this answer. I feel the same way about penises when it comes to that bit of repulsion. I just didn't know that until I saw some erotica.

    I just hate everything about them. Even when I tried to like women, vaginas still disgusted me.

    Pretty simple, I discovered I liked all of the private bit on any gender and, if both happen to be on the same body, even better. XD

    I remember hanging out with friends and they were always checking out girls and I always thought nothing special then one night I was on a comedy site and there was this add at the top with a guy with no shirt on I was ashamed but I couldn't help but click on the add eventually I learned what the word gay met and was like yup I'm gay took me a long time to come to terms with it and I am still dealing with it but coming out has helped me

    I never had sexual attraction towards guys but I still had a crush on them I guess. After a couple of years of questioning, I find myself wanting a relationship more with a girl and doing romantic things with her and sexually. And right now, I sort of have a crush on a girl that works with me. Too bad that she likes someone else :frowning2:

    It was when i had realized I was crushing on one of my classmates at 13/14. But now looking back I remember watching pictures of naked girls' butts when I was like 10 and liking it. Also when I was 11/12 I was checking out other girls of my classroom and I'd stare at their pictures and I'd say to myself that she's the prettiest and stuff like that. Creepy, I know. I never had crushes with boys, however my mom told me that when i was 7 I had a crush on one of my boy classmates bc he was responsible and educated, but i never said he was cute (a lot of girls who had a crush on one of my closest friends told their mom's that it was because he was cute)

    I was a bit of a late bloomer when it came to crushing on others, but at least once or twice when I was younger I ended up having crushes on boys and never really liked girls in that kind of way. It was really when puberty took its full course on me and I started looking into sexual things and felt sexual emotions that really determined my preference to males.

    I crushed on guys throughout school without realizing that they were crushes... it took a long time for me to accept the feelings being similar to how I felt about girls.

    I was probably 16 when I finally admitted to myself I was bisexual. I had crushes on guys but what had me going was being in the girls shower with my classmates... omg! I think I knew then that I liked girls too... a lot !

    Reading Shoujo Ai (Girls Love) manga lol. Before I discovered them I had quite an attraction for one of my classmates back in 2005. For a long time I thought I just wanted to be her friend then around discovering all the GL manga I realized I actually liked her. I also got a few crushes on female fictional characters.

    There was no one specific thing, I just knew I wasn't straight because I felt attractions towards guys.
    There was a good number of years between figuring that out and truly accepting ti though.

    I had a dream I made out with a bunch of the Spice Girls. I woke up and realized I liked it and thought "uh oh".

    While I was still in school I noticed handsome guys on TV and also had crushes on some guys. But I thought maybe I was just admiring them for their cool behaviour... and kept believing I was straight.

    I dated some girls but the relationships never lasted more than a few months when I would just lose all interest... my last relationship with a female was in university and after that, I felt that I did not want to hurt anyone in a relationship anymore so I thought to be single for life.

    This however led to me being rather depressed as I couldn't really accept myself fully. However, when I was back home for summer break I stayed over with my male best friend who I've been close with since early childhood. We went swimming, hiking, working out at the gym almost everyday, for about 1 month. I felt so cared for by my friend and having such a great time with him. I started realising that I was experiencing such pure happiness which I had long forgotten about... and I began to feel that I might be falling for my best friend.

    At the time I didn't know my best friend is also gay, but I somehow had a feeling that he might also be developing feelings for me. One evening when we were a little tipsy and playfully competing with each other on who can stay in the plank position the longest and maintain a wall squat the longest, we eventually got to teasing each other and he eventually led me back into his bedroom where we got a 'little busy' *blush* and I experienced my first male kiss.

    It's now been 4+ years since that evening, and I'm in a very happy relationship with him. Being with him has made me very happy in accepting myself as being gay and being truly myself.

    When I was little (around 7 years old? I'm not sure) I walked into my mom watching a movie, in the exact scene were a naked woman was walking. I remember feeling weird and thinking how pretty she was. I didn't think much of it and, as the years passed, I dated boys but kept on noticing cute girls.
    With today's discussions about sexuality and gender, I guess it just hit me lol
    Now every time a cute girl or boy crosses my path, I can't help but go "wow"

    I had little crushes or obsessions of girls as a child, and I would ask myself, when I didn't even know what the word "gay" meant if a girl could ever be with a girl or if I was the only one in the world that felt that way or...if that was the way I was feeling. I was very afraid of that.

    When I was a 11, I began to have a crush on a girl I went to school with. When I was 13 and still liked the same girl, I don't know what it was, but something in me just...broke..I remembered what I felt as a child and I realized that I could be a lesbian and it was something that I was going to have to face.

    Hmm tbh I think it was after an ex I used to date around 2010's? I can't really remember what year it was but I realized that I started liking girls and other people of gender. I thought I was weird for liking girls and other genders so I tried shrugging it off but I couldn't ignore my feelings so I started using the label pan and felt more in peace with myself. For polyamorous, I saw some people that were polyamorous probably around 2015-16 and I didn't know what it was so I looked it up. When I saw the meaning, I was neutral about it thinking "Nah I can't see myself being with multiple people." After a while of knowing the term, I started seeing myself being with two people and I actually like it so I realized that I was polyamorous.
