    I figured out I liked girls when I was watching Glee lol. From there, I just started looking at girls a lot and had feelings for them :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I was 16.

    Never did like looking at girls like my friends but liked looking at my friends, especially when we when we changed clothes. Was11 and on a camping trip with Big Bro and his friends and when we all went skinny dipping I knew what I am. Never thought about trying to change, am happy like I am

    my first crush was a boy, a friend of mine when I was 12. I knew it then but it took 15 years to finally act on it. I like girls too so I've passed as straight for awhile.

    did you feel this way all your life? Yes
    how much did you question it? Not enough to remember
    did you try to change? Not one bit
    how old were you? I definitely remember feeling this way at age 11 but I was a bit older when I realised that the feeling was what being gay meant. When it dawned on me I was like "Oh that's what gay is. Well yes then I'm definitely that"
    how did you find out? I just always knew that I wanted to be with another guy. I suppose it was obvious because of how much I stressed out about the importance of successful male relationships because they were of greater significance in a way.

    merely looking for answers in this awkward teenage life
    Hope you find the answers you need soon
