Does my teacher like me? I have a crush on ...

Hi, I'm a girl and I have this huge crush on my ELA teacher, who is also female. I find everything about her adorable and might be obsessed with her. She told my mom in parent-teacher conference- "I love her!" "shes my little helper." She also talks to me a lot and tells me I don't smile enough and puts this big smile on to get me to smile and laughs (god i love her laugh) when I do. I had a 99.3 average in her class and when it went down to a b-, she wrote me a little note and put it on my desk during class saying something about how she doesn't like seeing that and she noticed my math grade is similar and "we need to fix this!" and when she walked over and talked to me about it she told me I was very smart and could do better and so on. another thing, she always smiles at me and looks at me in class and she also asks whats wrong if I look sad and offers to let me leave for a bit or take a walk/drink. Does she feel attracted to me? Does she like me? Please help. Thank you. :)


I am androgynous and pansexual, but how do I communicate ...

Not to long ago I discovered that I was androgynous which was honestly the happiest day of my life. I've never felt so good to understand who I am. I'm also pansexual. But not a lot of people are familiar with these terms. A lot of people seem to blindly say things against who I am. I don't blame them for not knowing about androygnous but I do still hurt when they use words like daugther or girls or boys. I mean why must I choose a side? I just don't know how to get people to understand exactly what I mean. It's so hard to explain to them why I'm androygnous. I mean I didn't choose to be it I just chose to accept it and now I must try and and live with it and get by with all these questions like "please check male or female for your gender" I mean what do I pick? I'm reminded every time I sign up for something or even when I'm shopping in both "men" and "women" sides of the store. I don't know what to do anymore? How do I make this huge part of me known?!


I’m out but still questioning, and I need some advice. ...

Hi... Well, everyone knows about the term "coming out of the closet"... Well a while back, I was pulled out. So now I don't know what to do. Everywhere I look, there's someone making a wise-crack about it. Problem is, I'm not sure myself what I am. I never really cared before, I just rolled with the punches. But now that everyone knows, everything is just unbearable. They even somehow found out about some of my past experiences, and are using them as a basis. even though anyone knows, I can't seem to admit it. My close friends stuck around (mostly because they're homosexual or bisexual, so they're fine with it). Even though they know what I'm going through, I can't seem to speak up. I don't know what i'm asking really, I just want some advice, to make things a bit easier and reassure me. Thanks for your time, and for trying to answer my slightly confusing letter. - Jeffrey



I’ve found myself attracted to guys, does that mean that ...

Dear AlterHeros staff, First I want to thank you for establishing such website for youth who are or may be wondering about themselves. Incidentally, I am one of those people. I am turning 19 soon, and I think it's time for me to realize what my sexual orientation really is. I have noticed for a long time that I am attracted to both male and female (more like 75% for male and 25% for female), and I actually have had couple of crushes on some male friends of mine. It that normal? I've heard before that even straight people have crushes on the same-sex friends sometimes. Does the fact that I am attracted to males and have had crushes on same-sex conclude that I am gay? Is there any possibility that I just want to be like them (eg. good-looking, smart, athletic, etc), or is it that I actually like them, instead of being like them. I realize that my question may not be so significant, but I would really appreciate if you could reply with an answer. Thank you :)
