I am straight, but I am questioning whether I’m attracted ...

I've lately begun to wonder if what I feel for one of my closest friends is more than just friendship. Sometimes I think I'd like to kiss her, but other times, I feel nothing sexual at all. I'm not worried about how she would receive this, as I know she has been attracted to women before, and very much supports the LGBT community. Right now, I'm just so confused about how I actually feel about her. I do tend to seek her approval a lot, and when she praises me, I feel absurdly pleased with it. On the other hand, up until very recently, I'd never even seriously considered if I might be even bisexual, and I'm not sure if what I'm feeling for her is genuine attraction, or just a little girl crush. What should I do?

I like my best friend but he may be gay

I'm a female and a junior in high school right now. In freshman year I started liking my best friend Ben. Things have been intensifying over the past two years and I always thought Ben was flirting with me. He would touch me, play with my hair, and hint at things like kissing me and dating. Then, 2 weeks ago, Ben was asked on a date by another girl. He called me for advice and, though it killed me, told him to go for it. He told me he didn't want to and it was very complicated. I asked him why and jokingly asked him if he was gay. He surprisingly answered with an "I think I might be." What do I do so as not to ruin our friendship? Why did I like him so much? Why did he flirt with me? And most of all, why didn't he tell me sooner? I could have gotten over him a lot easier if he had told me last year. I mean, we are BEST FRIENDS and I would die without him. The only problem is, him being my best friend, I have no one else to talk to about this. I'm the only one he's come out to.

I am a 12-year-old who does not want to be ...

Hi. I am a 12-year-old female that does not want to be female, but is not yet aware of any sexual attractions. I realize I'm a bit young, but this has been troubling me for 2 years now, ever since I got my first period. There is this boy at school that I might like, but I'm not really sure, and I don't really think I am in love with him for some reason. But, I have also found that when I think of having a relationship with someone, I see myself as a man with a woman. I have told my parents that I believe myself to be a transsexual. I am beginning to have suicidal thoughts, and I want to stop them before they get to a extremely serious stage. I wanted to know if there are any support groups in California, and if you can provide any help as to how I can survive like this. I really need help before I try to hurt myself, because right now, that seems the only answer, but I know it's not what I'm supposed to do. Please help me.

I am in love with my chemistry teacher

Hi, here in Trinidad, we have different school systems. I'm in secondary school (high school and middle school together) and I know that I'm in love with my chemistry teacher. He's around 25 - 30 and he's always staring at me, even in class when he wants to pick up a lesson where he left off, he ALWAYS walks all the way across the class to see my book. For our Christmas Program, I was modelling for the intermission period, and when he saw me in the outfit (it wasn't that skimpy) his jaw hit the floor. Whenever he sees me he smiles, he even tries to be funny, and kind of shows off sometimes around me. One time, he even started whistling and pretending not to see me when I walked past (he was looking at me through the corner of his eye). He is truthfully no Brad Pitt, but still, he's cute, kind of short and he and I even have the same interests.( Anime, Rock, Guitar, Cricket) I really need to know what to do and whether I should approach him after I graduate.

I have small reddish bumps at the base of my ...

I have small reddish bumps at the base of my glans. They sometimes get swollen and are painful to the touch. I am also uncircumcised. Is this normal for someone who is active sexually? I have also had some minor clear discharges with little to no burning. Does that coincide with the previous symptom?
