Am I Bisexual?

"Am I Bisexual?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our community. Add your advice in the comments!

So I'm 20 years old and not too long ago I started hanging out with this girl a lot! And I don't know how it happened, but I just started getting really attached to her. I started noticing I felt like more attached than friends are . . . so anyway turns out she is gay and she came out to me about two months ago. When she came out to me she told me that she liked me and then I started realizing I like her too! So we like started talking or whatever and right now we are dating. My question is, am I bisexual or am I just attracted to her? I don't look at other girls and think damn she's hot or anything like that. It's just her!

I consider myself straight and I don't check out guys much. Don't worry about if you're straight or bi or lesbian or any of that. Just have fun and date whoever you want.

Possibly! As others have said though forgot the label for now. Go for what you are comfortable with. 20 is a wonderful age to find out. I was much older and regret missing those younger years. Take care and have fun; passed the curious stage!

Don't worry about labels right now. There is no need. See what happens and if there comes a day where you have no doubt about "what you are" then I suppose you could label yourself.

And one more thing, that friend of mine, he dropped the bi- prefix all together and just called himself 'sexual.' Which I thought was very clever!

Well you're not 100% straight, that's for sure. I had a friend once whose dating philosophy was, if you care about someone and are attracted to them, it shouldn't matter if they're a man or a woman. But he was very uncomfortable labeling himself as bisexual, since the attraction was more emotional than sexual. If I had to put a label on you, I'd say bicurious. But for now, maybe you should worry less about defining your sexuality, and focus on getting to know this new girl in your life. SKG is right about it taking time and patience.
