Hello, you can call me by the name of twist,
I'm a 15 year old bisexual girl living in Illinois.
I have joined this community for one reason -
to have help coming out of the closet.
When i was the age of 13, I started realizing that I had attractions not only to guys, but to girls as well.
I started saying girls were cute, beautiful, and amazing. I wanted to have a relationship with one. I KNOW I'm bi, its not a stage. I've had many guy relationships, but only a couple girl relationships. Many people outside my family - my close friends, and my new friends, know of my sexual orientation. my family on the other hand...don't really know. The only people who know is my brother and my cousin. I love them both more than anything, and I knew they would still be there for me. But for the rest of my family, I'm not sure how they feel. I'm afraid of telling them and being ultimately rejected. my parents are divorced, & i live with my mom. My dad is very homophobic. He disapproves gay rights, and doesn't accept people who are like so. My mother on the other hand is more accepting - but I'm still afraid to tell her. I'm so afraid she's going to freak and tell me im wrong. tell me I'm dirty and flat out wrong. I just want acceptance. But I'm so afraid...but I've been hiding for 2 years! I want to tell them..I also currently have a girlfriend, and i don't like keeping her a secret. But I don't know how to tell..I'm afraid. People of this community, can you help..?
