So, as you might already know, I'm struggling with confusion about gender orientation myself. I only dated boys but I think I'm also interested in girls.
So, I'll make this short!
There's a girl, we go to the same school but different classes, and I think if I would to go out with someone, it'll be her. I know for sure she's a lesbian, everyone knows it. I just don't know her !
I've heard she's single now and am thinking, if ever there's an opportunity to date her, it has to be now!
I just don't know how to ask her out. I'm not nervous because she might say no, I'm nervous because I've never asked anyone out before, especially another girl!
Any advice? Do I tell her I like her? Or do I just say hey and ask if she'd like to see a movie sometime?
Sorry if this sounds lame. I barely have the guts to ask you guys for help, let alone talk to her!
Hi everyone, I'm Netty and I am a lesbian. I'm very glad I found this website, as I need some help and advice.
I recently turned 18, and I was sure once I was legally an adult I could begin to really live my life as I feel I should. I was always afraid of my parents being mad at me and telling me what to do, so I figured once I turn 18, I can start living my own life.
But age didn't change the fact that I grew up in a very religious family and, even if I have accepted myself as a lesbian, I always feel guilty when I think of girls a certain way... I'm afraid if I do something my parents or the Bible doesn't agree with, something bad will happen.
I don't want to feel like this anymore. I know, deep down, that bad things don't happen just because you're gay! But I can't help it, for 18 years all I heard is being lesbian/gay/bisexual and don't even get me started on transsexual, is very very wrong.
I just want a normal life, to have a girlfriend and just be happy, but I feel there's something holding me back. Has anyone ever felt this way? What did you do? Will therapy help? I'm ready to try anything that would help!
