What if I stay in this relationship for the rest ...

I've been in a relationship with a queer female person for a year now. I've never been in any other relationship. We're in a very happy and healthy relationship together. But, I'm worried about the future. What if I stay in this relationship for the rest of my life, and never have any experiences with other people, or with people of other genders? I feel badly for thinking this way, but the both of us starting CEGEP has me thinking of my future. My partner and I talk about everything, but I don't want her to feel like I don't want to be with her by telling her this. Though they're very supportive of my queerness, my parents might like the idea of me "trying a relationship with a boy too", so I feel like they aren't the best people to ask. And I have no queer adults in my life to look up to who. I don't know what I should do or who I should talk to.





Did same-sex sexual abuse turn me gay?

I'm 20 years old and would like to know something. It's kind of a weird question to ask, but I will anyways. When I was 7 years old, I was molested by a 40 year old man on several occasions. I didn't know it was a bad thing to do at the age of 7. I feel so betrayed now and hurt. This man was my first sexual contact with anyone and I wanted to know if he made me gay?
