i am not interested in dating at the moment, but i do have a ex girlfriend, so i am straight
Hey noworry,I've been calling myself asexual for years now, mostly because people won't stop asking me about my "crushes". While I am aware and fully support and respect that there are people who are asexual out there, I am not one of them. I currently identify as "gay", although it's not something I tell people.
At first I didn't want to accept it. It started when I realised I was crushing on my best friend back in 2014 (which I still am, but it's not as bad), and tried to convince myself that I just liked her a lot as a friend. I didn't want to be gay, because it made me worry. LGBT+ people face so much shit for being themselves, and I am not a very confindent person to begin with. Eventually I told my closest friends (excluding said best friend, because I'm a chicken). It went surprisngly well, and one of them even came out as pansexual to me. Other than that I'm not really out to anyone, but most people know I don't "like guys much".
This year I finally started accepting myself for who I am, and while I'm not ready to come out to my family and other friends, I do feel more comfortable with myself. I talk to the friends who know I am gay about crushes and such.
It is a sort of a step forward for me, revealing it here, though. I feel like it's safe, seing as the people here are accepting and friendly.
