For a while now I've been wondering whether I was straight or bisexual. I deffinetly know I'm attracted to boys, and I'm more attracted to boys than girls, but I think I am still attracted to girls a bit. I'm emotionanly, romanticaly, physically and sexually attracted to boys, but I'm only physically and sexually attracted to girls. So I don't like girls as much as boys, but calling myself straight doesn't feel right. I am a bit scared of telling people (if I am) as I don't want people to think I'm making it up for attention, like many people do. And also I don't want any of my friends seeing me differently than they did. It has been going around in my head for months now, and I'm just really confused. It has been on my mind constantly, but I'm still in the same place in terms of figuring out which I am. I feel like an idiot for even having to ask this... Would you consider me to be bisexual or straight?

romantic interest has nothing to do with sexuality. Sexual interest, and sexual interest alone, determines sexuality.
If you are sexually interested in men and women, you are bisexual.
if you are much more interested in men than women, but still interested in women, you are bisexual, and just have a preference for men.
if you are sexually interested in men and women, with a preference for men sexually and you see men exclusively as a potential romantic interest while having no romantic desires for a woman... you are still bisexual. Who you can see yourself dating or falling in love with or being romantic with has nothing to do with it.
it is who you find sexually desirable.
and if you are worried people will think you are coming out as bi just for attention, or that they will treat you differently? don't come out. your sexual preference does not need to be out there for everyone to know and think about. it's yours. if you came out as bi tomorrow, you'd still be the same person. If you chose to keep it personal, you will still be that same person.1

Maybe you are bisexual but there are a lot of 100% straight women who find another women pretty or even sexually attractive and many women feel that way. Now If you have a desire to actually have sex and be in a relationship with one thats a diffrent story and that might meand you are bisexual. Many people look for the littlest things so they can maybe call themselves bisexual or gay, but I feel like it has to come from your heart and u have to want to be in a real and even long term relationship with a women. I could be wrong tho I'm not Gay or bisexual, tho I have friends who are and they have said similar things like what i have just said..2
