My name is Mai. I go to a really good, diverse and open school. Recently, I’ve started to notice that even though I want to hook up with guys and stuff, I fantasize about making out with girls too. And even more recently I’ve realized I might have a crush on my best friend, who is a girl.

She’s the best. She was there for me when I was being cyber-bullied, when I started questioning myself, and everything. I am completely open to her, she probably knows more about me than my parents. But I started to catch myself thinking about wanting to kiss her, almost as much as kissing my guy crush.

I’m still working through it, but I know that if she truly is as close a friend to me as I think she is, she’ll accept it if I tell her I like her. She and some of my closest friends know that I am 90 percent sure I am bi, and they support me, no matter what.

My closest friends are there for me, even if I have a crush on one of them, and that’s all that matters to me.

      its been almost a year, and I’m not the same girl now and the situations changed a little.
      maybe give your friends a little space, let it sink in. But honestly, if they don’t stop being rude, they aren’t your real friends. Friends respect and support one another. I’m not friends with some people now because they were being rude, and would not respect what I was saying. You just have to find the people who are there for you 100%. Surround yourself with people who care and respect you, because no one else matters, except for you, and the people that care about you.

      That’s not cool your friends offended you like that! Your friends may still be adjusting to your sexuality. Sometimes it’s easier to ignore people who try to hassle you, but factors like your safety and well-being need to be considered. If your friends continue to give you a hard time you should take action to stop this. Remember: You are not responsible for other people’s attitudes, just be you!

    When I told my best friend that I found myself attracted to her she accepted me and me and her are even closer now and I wouldn’t have changed a thing about that day
