When I came out to each of my friends, the most terrifying part of it was feeling so incredibly vulnerable.
While I thought I knew them, I didn't know explicitly what they would say or how they would react.
She ended up kissing me for the first time after asking me to go out for something to eat.
We hooked up a few times on and off, and now we've been dating for almost a year.
As I grew older and more aware of my sexuality, however, I realized that I was very attracted to men as well, just in a different way. Woman A: There was never a coming-out process for me when it came to friends at school — in our social circle, there were a lot of LGBT folks.
Everyone just kind of knew and no one was judged about it in our group.
Woman C: I remember being around 11 years old and meeting this girl in my youth group at church who I thought was so pretty.
I would write in my journal about her and pretend that she thought I was just as pretty as she was.
It's complicated because I may end up with a man or a woman at different parts in my life, and I'm not sure how that will translate through my parents' understanding of bisexuality.
Other than that, I have received pretty positive responses to my sexuality.
I never thought of myself as a straight person either. Woman B: I had always identified as straight; I hadn't really considered any other possibilities.
