Can you change your sexuality? Lately, I’ve been really really confused. I’m not sure what to consider the feelings i have. I think I’m bi because I like girls, and have had successful relationships with them, but I also fantasize about men. Sometimes I think more about men than I think about women. Then most recently I got to a point when I was almost convinced I was gay because I would check out one of my attractive male friends and have sexual fantasies about him. At the same time at school, I had a crush on a girl. I know my hormones are ridiculously crazy, but all these feelings have left me at a point in my life where I just want to be straight. I will admit that part of the reason is because i analyze media and straight is the way to go, but if my memory serves me correct, I liked girls since 5th grade and not until 7th grade did I become interested in boys. So finally, Do I just let my hormones do whatever they want? I don’t want a label, I just don’t want to be confused any more.
