Welcome to Is This Normal? I still find men attractive. Does this make me bi? Please help! Ah, I relate so much to your letter…mostly because I have been there. A few years ago, after a particularly bad breakup, I felt a strange desire to date women. After all, I too had historically dated and had sex with men. I started to marinate over my sexuality. Was I this or that? Straight or gay or maybe bisexual? Then I learned that pansexuality was a thing and was even more confused.

Like you, I was especially confused because this attraction seemed to pop out of nowhere, and I wanted an answer. Our society has conditioned us to think of sexuality and gender as a very black-and-white thing. And any time we stray from that black-and-white thinking, society gets confused.

Society has tried to keep up by adding labels for all different sorts of orientations and genders: pansexual, asexual , transgender , genderqueer , etc. But even with this wide buffet of labels, some folks might still find it hard to pick one. I feel like this is you right now.

And like you and me , many of these women consider themselves to be straight. The Kinsey scale developed by Dr. Kinsey and s for findings that showed people who did not fit into exclusive heterosexual or homosexual . I often think about how, when I was , the only relationships I was exposed to were heterosexual ones. In nearly every Mary-Kate and Ashley movie, the twins met cute boys. Lizzie McGuire had a crush on Ethan Craft.

Cady Heron had Aaron Samuels. There was no sexual fluidity in our media, which is maybe why it makes it so hard to understand when we experience it ourselves. In one of her Instagram posts , queer artist Florence Given writes:. According to Sarah Escalante , an associate clinical social worker, it's important to remember that queerness doesn't have to be defined in just one way; it can be defined differently for any one individual. After you consider the type of crush you have and decide that you do want to act on it, you might want to consider how you want to act on it to feel most comfortable.

Do you want to share how you feel with them? Maybe this will be the only girl you ever crush on. In any case, these feelings are totally valid—and you are totally normal. Home Love Is This Normal?
