How old were you when you first realized... (private voting)

Peggi Peggi
How old were you when you first realized that you were bisexual? This doesn't have to include actual "encounters", it could've simply been your first crushes in school, or the first time you got butterflies in your stomach talking to someone. We all go through that stage, I think, where we realize that we like both genders, so I was just curious! For some it may have taken longer because you weren't told that this was even an option, or you didn't realize what the term for it was, so I'll leave it up to your discretion as to whether or not you feel it was when you first had a crush of each gender, had a first date, or first discovered the term for your feelings! Have fun!

I was always interested in girls, but I guess it never occured to me that I might be bisexual until my 20s. Late bloomer I guess.

I guess i should have had a clue before my early teens but I remember coming to the realisation when I kept getting turned on my a female teacher.

I was either 15 or 16 when I fully realized that I was in fact bisexual. I come from a very conservative area, so, while I never had any issue with people who were LGBT, I had trouble coming to terms with the idea that I might be anything other than straight myself. Up until around I was around 13 or 14 I only was really interested in boys, but that year I got a massive crush on another girl. I assumed it was just an exception for this one girl and moved on. For the next few years I had a few more girl crushes, then when I had a really intense one that was very heavily lust-based on a girl a couple years older than me during my freshman year in high school, I came to terms with the fact that, okay, yeah, I'm attracted to women as well as men.

I had a very powerful crush on a girl when I was 6 but I didn't recognize it at that time. I thought I was straight till High School. Then I finally connected the dots.

I would have to say I realized it when I was around 14 or so. I remember looking at other girls a little too long and really trying to avoid it. I thought something was wrong with me.
Finally, at 16, I acted on my actions and found that what I was experiencing was totally normal and really fun.

i actually found that I was attracted to women before i figured i was always attracted to men (i had to be like four for the first and five for the second). for me, now, it really depends on the day of the week; when I feel more masculine, I want a woman and when i feel more feminine, i want a man (it's weird, but that's just how it is with me)...

Holy crap I'm the same way! Where I am on my continuum of masculinity/ femininity decides who I want to be with that day!

Probably around 15-ish. I had done things with a girl when I was 11, but I didn't really think anything of it until I was older and started thinking girls were sexually attractive.
