I am 18 and my 16 years old girlfriend came ...

I saw a question similar to this but want to ask for advice in my situation. So, I've been going out with Erika, my girlfriend, for almost 8 months. It's not my first long-term relationship but it is for her--it's her first lesbian relationship. She wanted to come out to her family and I told her I'd support her. Once her family found out though, well, her mom hasn't stopped crying. And I know she blamed me because I "converted" her in her eyes, and I could see why she would feel disrespected, considering I've slept over etc. I texted her mom and told her I was sorry. She told me that I had given a horrible pain to her family and to stay away from her family because Erika was confused and that since she is 16 and I'm 18, an adult, I should just stay away. My gf says her mom would never sue me but I'm scared, our moms work at the same school. The last thing I want to do is stay away from Erika, though. So what do I do?


I have strong feelings and attractions for the same sex… ...

Ok, so here's the thing: I'm not 100 sure if I"m a lesbian. I've noticed having had strong feelings, and have attracted to the same sex for around 3 years now (I'm 17). However, I keep telling myself that this could be a stage...I don't want it to be real because I would lose my mom..my whole family. Anyway, another reason for my doubt is that I haven't been in a relationship with either sex. I'm pretty sure I am ( think I just don't know how to accept it)...but I need to know for sure...I think I know for sure...but I guess I just need confirmation either way. Also, let's say I am a lesbian...how can I let others know, or should I? I know I sound so silly, but I feel so alone and confused...How do I know if someone else is a lesbian...I'm just lost...so silly I know...but any advice or anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks





Story – Out of The Shadows and Into The Light

If there's one thing I've learned in my lifetime, it's that nothing goes as planned. As such, coming out didn't happen at all the way I planned it. It was a typical story: get Mom, Dad, and my sister together, and do it in person. The same went for my friends. I'm sure you've already guessed that that's not how it went.


I told my mom about my sexuality and I doubt ...

Dear AlterHeros, I have told my mom recently that I'm bi; about two weeks ago, and when I told her, she said I was too young to know what I am (I'm 15). I wasn't afraid of telling her because of her disowning me or anything, because she is A-okay with gays, but I was afraid that she wouldn't believe me. She said she didn't mean to judge me. We haven't talked about it since and I kind of wish we would because it would make me feel better knowing that she trusts my intuition. I don't know what to do. - Shannon



Should I be straight forward and tell my new friends ...

I "came out" to the school that I am currently going to and to my mother; but I am moving and now I don't know if I should be straight foward and tell the new people at the new school that I am bisexual. What do you think I should do? Also, I have accepted that I am at least bisexual, but lately I have been feeling that I might be more than just that. Lately, I have been really wondering whether or not I might be lesbian. I still have some feelings for guys, but I'm still not sure. Do you think that I may be lesbian, or do you think it's something else? Like maybe just a faze or something.
