Our parents caught us kissing and now I have to ...

I've always been a bit of a tomboy, but my parents would never let me do the things I wanted- the only sports they would let me play were the 'girly' ones- figure skating, ringette, soccer, cheerleading, ballet, gymnastics, etc. I guess maybe they figured something out about me at five that it took me years to realize: I'm gay. (My hands are shaking just typing that) I have a girlfriend, the most beautiful, awesome, smart, funny girl in the world. I love her. Nobody knew about us until yesterday, when her mother caught us kissing when we thought nobody was home. We're no longer allowed to see each other and my parents are sending me to Catholic school, because apparently 'this would never have happened in a Catholic school'. They're really, really, really angry. I'm- so many things. I'm terrified, I'm scared, I'm angry, I'm confused, and I'm really depressed. I just want to die, or run away from home and leave this hick town forever. I don't know what to do. Please help.


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 am attracted to someone else than my husband but ...

I am a mother of 2 kids... The problem started when my girlfriend taught me how to chat; then I became addicted to chatting. I also met this guy at the chatroom and then we became very close to each other but we never met in person. We see each other only on the webcam... Our relasionship stayed that way for nearly 3 years... I don't know when it will stop but i know this is wrong because I have a husband who is good and kids. I kept telling myself this guy is just my past-time but now I am not so sure anymore. I don't want to lose my family or this guy because I know that he loves me and I think I love him too. Please help me deal with my feelings. Maybe I have made a mistake..



My parents won’t let me date before I turn 15

This is Katie again...the one who asked how come my boyfriend doesn't treat me like his other girlfriends. Your answer helped me a lot. He was my first kiss and the first guy I've held hands with...I really like him a lot...but something has come up... I'm turning 15 in a 2 months. My parents won't allow me to date until I turn 15 and even then we can't go to the movies or anything until a couple months after he has been to my house and hanged out with my parents and family. My sister found out today that I've been dating him for over a month now. She says I have to break up with him until I turn 15 and he is allowed to date other girls in the meantime. I'm crying about it because he is the only guy that I've dated that I've liked this much before. I'm scared that if I tell him this, he will soon move on and find another girl and by the time I do get to date it will be too late. I just don't want to let him go this way.I care about him way too much for this..What can I do? Josh is the only guy I've liked this much


Does my teacher have the right to disclose my sexual ...

Hi, my name is Catherine. About 6 months ago, I came out as having feelings for girls, and there was this girl who I really liked and she told me she liked me as well : we have now been together for about 5 months now. However, the problem is that many people at my school found out about our relationship, though they are fine with it now. Another problem is that I go to boarding school and my housemistress found out, and now she seems to be picking on me and the other girl and threatening to tell my father who is against anything like that. I wanted to know if she has the right to do that?




I came out as bisexual to my parents last summer ...

Hello. I came out as bisexual to my parents last summer and am still having trouble with it. My mom (who is very conservative) actually said: "I still love you as my daughter, but I don't accept this" when I recently asked her about it. She also keeps threatening to tell my sister and if she does I'll be in for some REAL abuse, because my sister's very homophobic and believes most stereotypes about GLBT people, no matter what I say to try and teach her. I asked my dad for help since he's pretty accepting of my sexuality, but he hasn't been too successful. Any ideas?



I have sexual fantasies about my stepmother, and I don’t ...

Hello, I've just turned sixteen and for the past year or so I've been having sexual fantasies about my Step-Mom. I want to tell her, but I don't want her to hate me or feel disgusted by me. I know this could be due to hormonal changes, as she is the only female I see because I am home-schooled. I feel really horny around her and masturbation doesn't help, so I was wondering if there is anyway to stop this feeling without therapy? AlterHeros, I need your help!



My girlfriend’s family doesn’t want her to go out with ...

Hi, I think I got a problem. Well, I love a girl and she is my sister's friend and she love's me but the thing is her mom – she kind of found out what was going on and she does not want her daughter to be with a girl. I just fell like dumping her even if it has only been 2-3 days that we did made are relation official – and that's because of her mom. I don't want to be causing trouble in her family. My girlfriend knows that I am an alcoholic and she accept that fact, but I know myself and if her brother make her feel guilty I will go drunk to see him and do something to him. I don't know what to do because of her family. I am ready for that. Please HELP ME before I get crazy. She is like 16 and me 19.
