I feel I am bisexual and have no one to talk to about this, what should I do?

Ben's Answer:

The world is full of bisexual people. You just need to know where to look. And you probably already cross paths with many gay or bisexual people and never even realize it. If you are uncertain about your sexuality or just need to talk to someone about this, I recommend talking to a therapist. It doesn't mean you have something "wrong" with you to get help from a therapist. It's simply a supportive, non-judgmental person who can listen and help you to get clear about your own thoughts and feelings. Definitely one of the most valuable things you could do - as long as you feel comfortable with your choice of therapists. It's fine to shop around (interview therapists before deciding on one).

You can also try a free hotline, just to talk to someone anonymously whenever you need to. Try the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Youth Support Line 800-850-8078.
