The only way to know your sexual orientation is to go by how you feel. Easy, right?

Just kidding! Understanding your sexual orientation and finding a label that best fits how you identify can take time — whether you’re bi, gay, straight, pansexual, or something else. Bisexual means being attracted to more than one gender. If that’s how you’re feeling, you might be bisexual, and that’s totally cool!  

The important thing to remember is that there’s nothing wrong with any sexual orientation. For some people, their sexual orientation might stay the same throughout their life. For others, who they are attracted to and how they identify might change throughout their life. No matter what, there’s nothing wrong with changing the labels you use to describe your own sexual orientation during your lifetime.

Talking with someone you trust, someone who’s going through the same thing as you, or has gone through it in the past, can really help you in figuring out how you identify.
