idk what to do.

My best friend (well, we used to be;we've distanced and don't talk much) but still. well, we've been friends for like 5 years now. we used to be close as brothers. we've been through a lot (family stuff) and yeah, we've messed around before and still do every now and then. the only thing is, he's had a gf, but they recently broke up, and i still like him. i've just recently realized that i actually like him. idk what to do. i think about him all the time, but we never talk unless we're messing around. i hate it, but at the same time i love it. help, please?

Crush/ in love =/

I'm 14 and my best friend is straight (I think). I'm in the closet bit a couple people guessed I'm gay but I denie it. I'm either in love or just have a really big crush on my best friend. We haven't hung out much lately which kills me inside. I can't stop thinking about him except when I'm with him cause then I dont miss him or feel separated. I want to stop lovin him so badly cause I'm really sure he's straight. I don't want to ruin our friendship or anything so I don't want to even tell him I'm gay. Help plz.

The boy in music class!!!

So im still going through puberty so i might be gay,straight,or bi but i was sitting in music class when i notice from the corner of my eye that Marcell( a jock kinda tall and muscular) staring at me. earlier today at lunch i started liking him so when he looked at me it felt really good...were that good of friends so he doesnt notice me that well...he always "accidentaly" bumps into me...his voice is so cute and his lips look so moist and kissable....i really want him to like me but i guess that will never happen.But on the bright side every monday,tuesday,and thursday we have music together so maybe i do have a chance........

Im in love with my best friend

Im 19 and I know im gay but no one else dosent. I used to mess with girls to keep up with my friends but was never satisfied. I been through so much in life growing up without a mother and father...but the worst thing i can emagine doing is comming out. On another note i meet this kid in h.s last year and we became so close that were like brothers... we do everything together. the first time i saw him it was an instant attraction. We been friends for two years and ive became madly in love with him.... the only problem is that hes stright... well i think he is. We sleep in the same bed sometimes cuddle tell stories for hours and i just feel that the best thing for me to do is distant myself from him because i dont want to have this feeling knowing it will never happen between us. Not only am i afraid to come out to him.... my other friends.. were like family and i know everything would change once they know... maby i should move to another state and start a new life.... being gay?
—Guest Adicted

i feel and think differently

im a 15 year old guy and i consider myslef to be straight but i feel either gay or bi. one of my guy friends is extremely attractive and we told each other that weve thought about being gay. i want to act on it but idk if he does. we even slept together at a camp and i wanted to kiss him so bad but i dont want him to hate me. He's the only guy i have these feelings for. help?

Huh?

So I'm 13 and lesbian. So there's this girl in my grade and i'm pretty sure I like her. She's smart, funny, athletic and she laughs at everything, and of course she's hot. Like really hot. Gorgeous. So I've only known her for about two years but whenever I'm around her I act like a dork. I can't talk right, I can't focus and I just act like... Well a dork, sometimes. Other times I'm just me and it's not that exciting. I'm falling head over heels for her. I wouldn't say I love her, but I really do like her... A lot. Anyway I have one really good friend who knows about all of this and she helps me out, but I still wish I could know what she (the girl I like not my friend) thinks of me. See she doesn't always act straight. Now I do realize that this could just be a "girl thing" but I'm not good at picking up on those so I have know idea what she's thinking. She has a boyfriend, but I still pick up some weird "vibes" from her. All i know is, however pathetic it may sound, I get excited when she calls me or texts me and I want to tell her I like her and I only have a year left with her before she switches schools. I like her and I wish I knew what she was thinking. Help!

no no no

I'm a guy, 14, and I like this one guy. He's not the perfect guy, he's short, ADD, and gets mad easily. I'm a couple months younger and we hang out alot, usualy I'll spend the night at his house with one other friend. We're the kind of people that don't have many friends. We became friends through Boy scouts and have had the same classes through 7th and 8th grade. We are best friends and I don't want to ruin that. were like brothers and can tell each other anything, but this could ruin it. We're going into our freshman year of high school and I don't want anything to be wierd between us. HELP!

—Guest Small Town BiGuy

deeply in love wit my str8 m8

i wasted 5 years of my life being in love wit my best mate, we're both males, i came out to him bout me bein gay, an he was ok with it as long as i never tried anythin on him. i was afraid to ask or try anythin for fear of loosin my bestmate, who oddly enough stopped all contact with me 4 months ago, its de not knowin why dat hurts more, so before too many people waste de best years of their life in love with sum1- jus be honest and tell them, if they leave then theywerent much of a m8 to begin with...
—Guest jokk

Regretfull

I'm a 16 year old bi guy and the only open bi guy in my school, all my guy friends are straight but I have this massive crush on one of my best friends, then one day when I was sitting next to him I just lent over and kissed him on the side of the face then he punched me and had a big skitz about it and now he hates me and then went and told the whole school and now every one bags me out about it and I'm a loner at school, but the worst thing is I still really like the guy

I'm alwys there for her and if this guy makes her happy then i really want him 2 be with her but....... im just so confused!!! I love her with all my heart and would die to protect her, i treasure every word she says and just seeing her makes me happy and my heart seems to just jump out...what do i do?...
