I was eleven when me and my brother were watching this show on MTV, no idea what is was about but the kid is what about was a stereotypical gay guy. My brother said I used to be partly like that ( danced, played with my sister just as much as with my brother) and I thought I was gay because of that. Talked about it with my parents because I thought it was horrible. ( They told me it was fine if I was but probably know for sure in my puberty) Never gave it much thought after that and when I really liked a girl at 14 I thought I must be straight, seriously dated her at 17 and when she broke up I was happy, that's when I started realising I was probably gay and accepted it that week. So I knew around 11, but believed I was straight till 17 ( although somewhere I always knew I felt attracted to guys)

Hmm... When I was in fifth grade, I noticed that I always had some sort of "interest" in guys, but didn't think much of it. I thought that I just didn't like girls yet and everything was normal. Sixth grade went on, everyone asked whom I liked, I always said no one because I hadn't liked anyone yet. Ironically, some people thought I was gay because they "could just tell" (even though I'm by far the least flamboyant gay guy at my school... Except one other guy). During 7th grade, I really started to question my sexuality since I often caught myself staring at men and looking up pictures of hot guys and getting turned on. By the end of the school year, I came to the conclusion that I was gay, and in no way straight, and slowly came out to my close friends. It's funny how years later people still hold arguments over my sexuality, I guess they'll never know. :rofl:

When I was 12 I started to watch porn. At First, I didn't go straight to gay porn but until I started to notice that I only focuse on the guy but not the girl when watching it. I couldn't accept myself to be gay and even abhor myself, thinking why am I the unlucky one... I wanted to be normal. But after I watched some YouTube coming out video about this, I realized that there are people in this world just like me. So I Started to get through it.

I always knew I acted different from other guys...hate football, get along with girls really well, yada yada yada yada. But, to realize I was gay...that took a litte longer. I had just gotten out of school from sixth grade, and it was summertime, and I was at this camp, and we had a camp counselor named "him", we'll use that name. So anyways, I literally woke up one day before camp, we were about halfway through the camp session by now, and that morning, he was the only thing I could think about. I was like in a daze. I even left him a note, with no name...and then I calmed myself down, and started going through all the stages that anybody coming out has to go through.

That is like the exact same story as me. Except maybe a few years difference
Gay ~ 15 ~ out to 5 ~ probably all for a little while.

I went back and forth A LOT. When I firt started experimenting with porn, it was straight porn, but then somehow I started watching gay porn and just continued with that. Then I got a crush on a girl, and after she rejected me, I got a crush on a guy. But then this summer I thought I might be bi, so I got a girlfriend, but it ended really quickly because I realized I just had no attraction to her. That's how I confirmed that I was gay.

But how did you get a crush on that girl before if you're gay? My case is really similar to yours, but I think I may be bi.

I think I was always attracted to boys for as far back as I can remember, but I think I realized I was at about 12-13.

I was in 4th grade when I started questioning, then because of my catholic upbringing I thought the old "Holy shit, if I'm gay then I'm going to hell" type dealie. I tried to reason with myself that I wasn't gay, that if maybe I was bi I could get a pass (as if thinking about it would change anything) then the next day I reasoned with that if I kissed this kid i knew on the back of the neck then I would know. I did hesitantly while we were walking in a line and I kind of just pecked him and he said 'Dude, what the heck' and I made up some dumb excuse about bumping into him. I stopped thinking about it for a while.

It wasn't until like 8th grade I wondered if I watched gay porn whether I would be aroused or not. So I clicked on a video and was watching three dudes sitting in a room shirtless, and instantly thought 'This is weird, I should stop'. But I kept watching. Then when the one guy reached over and started kissing the other guy, feeling him up, the other guy kind of started resisting in a really sexy, passive way and the other other guy started taking his pants, I thought 'What. Why.' as I saw that I popped a boner super hard in my pants. Kept watching and it kind of affirmed the suspicions I had for 6 years.

Complicated for me. I felt that I would like boys from around the age of 9, but I didn't know that it was any different until I was 10 when I heard a news story about it (and my parents told me homosexuality is a sin) so I put that down as my answer, but I only started really experiencing it when I was 11 and got a crush on a guy in my class.
Coincidently that was also the same year kids at school started using homophobic slurs, so my self esteem dropped quite a bit.

I was so confused in high school really. I had girlfriends and wanted boyfriends too. Then a couple of years later it became crystal clear I had not orientation preferences as long as there was beauty within and outside. A couple of friends only know. My ex-girlfriend (the redhead damn), my best mate and a friend (boy) I had sex with in a completely drunk state.

Alas, never felt the need to explain myself.

I started watching straight porn when I was 12 , then when I was 15 I checked out gay porn, I just wanted to see what it was like, and it turned out that I really liked it. Its strange because I don't remember ever having crushes on boys before I was 16 (or maybe I just didn't acknowledge / realise it at the time,). I only realized that I was fully gay when I joined this forum early last year, prior to that I thought I was bisexual.

I was around 13-14 when I first questioned myself. It started with me just feeling different around this one boy almost like butterflies when I was around him. Whith me going to a christian school because it was the closest one to get into there was this one teacher who was also a Minister who said homosexuality is a sin amd even got into an argument with one of the 2 out gays and the got isolation because of it so I haven't come out publicly because for a time I believed him. When I started watching porn it was straight but I would pretty much be looking at the man all the time so I switched to gay porn to see if it was true, that I was gay and ever since that I accept that I am gay

Trying to think. I want to say I had a crush on a guy when I was like 5. He was one of my friends older brother. I think he was at least 3 or 4 years older then me (might explain my love for older guys now). Back then I just acted more feminine and I tried to convince myself that I was "normal" for years. Fast forward a few years later I saw "Honey I shrunk ourselves" or something like that and when I saw this blonde kid kissing one of the main characters I felt something and I loved the idea of his lips (probably 9 at this time). I didn't explore my sexuality until I was 15 though but I'd been watching gay and straight porn for a long time. I still watch both but I prefer gay porn. But I guess you could say I started questioning myself when I was in 7th grade so 15 when I had a crush for my friend and a few other guys in school. I thought I was still into girls but that was just me covering my ass because I wasn't ready to admit that I liked guys.

Probably around the 7th grade, though I have always had feelings for both genders since forever without noticing it.
