I chose to write this in the "sexual orientation" forum seeing as this thread is mostly about me being bisexual. I was brought up by homophobic parents and had homophobic friends, so I was in the closet for a very long time. In fact, it was only about two weeks ago that I thought, fuck it, I'll let them find out who I really am and I won't care. I was in this state of mind because I had finally found a girlfriend (I am a girl) who loved me as much as I loved her. I think it's safe to say it was the first proper loving relationship I'd ever had. It was the best feeling in the world after having to deal with 18 years of people never truly accepting me for who I am, and never being able to have the perfect relationship. Unfortunately, she dumped me yesterday. This has happened before with my one other ex girlfriend, the reason being that she sadly has feelings for a boy. Now, I've often had people tell me, "never trust a bisexual", but I could never live to that statement seeing as I am bi myself. Anyway, she says she can't trust herself to be faithful to me, even though she loves me and wants to be with me. I find this excuse possibly has a hidden meaning, and she just doesn't want to tell me that after she's had time to get to know me, she actually finds me repulsive, I don't know. Anyway, I've kinda lost all will to do anything. My parents don't know anything, and only a select few friends are trying to help me through it. Most people who know, however, refuse to support me at all due to their homophobia. So, here I am, wanting to scream. I could really really appreciate an ear.
