      @thefloorislava i feel the same way. it’s so frustrating because for me personally it’s like. it’s easier to just date guys even if i like a girl, there’s so much that mentally holds me back because i always go through every possible outcome if i were to actually have a future with her — i know the type of reactions it would get from my family which always makes me just. shy away from it and stick to dating guys because then i won’t have to come out or deal with my family never seeing me the same, or reacting negatively to who i’m with

      Having to deal with my immigrant parents views on how I should live/ my dating life. They're just constantly mad at me and bring up fights about me being queer, me not being a virgin, and me having had sex with people outside of our specific ethnic group.

      recently my sexuality. i met this girl not too long ago and she’s great — i just have this mental block when it comes to romantically being involved with women because my entire family would not approve of it. its so frustrating, because its always at the back of my mind when i talk to women in that way. i love my family, and i cant stand the thought of losing them or them seeing me differently if i were to come out

        @azalee I'm the same way, especially with being bi and knowing that I have been in love and happy in relationships with guys, it's like there's so much internal dialogue that would just make it hard for me to be a good partner to a girl. I just wish things were simpler

        @azalee I am very sorry to hear about your situation. That is truly a rough spot to be in and can't imagine what you go through mentally because of it. I wish I had advice for you. If you ever need to talk I will listen though.

      I’m so confused about my sexuality, I’m pansexual but I love the idea of being in a long term relationship with a woman. I’m currently in a long term relationship with my baby daddy and I keep thinking about women even though I haven’t had much luck with them in the past.
