Happy Bi Visibility Day!
I didn’t realize I was bisexual until recently. Or at least I didn’t want to admit it to myself until recently. I have crushes on both boys and girls.
My first boy crush was in elementary school. His name was Jonathan. I was 7 at the time. My friends talked to his friends and we were going to “start something”. After thinking it over, though, I decided he was just too immature.
My first girl crush wasn’t until middle school. I was around the age of 12. It was on a beautiful girl named Lexi. She was a dancer and super tall. I wasn’t friends with her so I crushed from afar. I didn’t know what it was at first. I thought I just really wanted to be her friend but I know now that it was more than that.
My first dating experience was with a guy. We went out together quite a lot my freshman year of college. He would call me adorable and I would just fawn over him. I knew I liked him but I also had crushes on girls. This really confused me. I didn’t even really know the term bisexual. I knew what being gay was but I didn’t really fit into that category.
My experience with telling my parents was a good one. It just came out one day and we discussed it a bit. It was difficult at first but I know my family is super supportive and there for me. Telling my best friend was a little more difficult. I was scared that I would scare her away. But it all went fine and we are still best of friends. If you are nervous to tell the people you love, then do it when you’re ready. The people who love you back will be there for you and stick with you no matter what.
