Lesbian over here.
I guess it is hard for me to explain without ever having a crush, but here we go. When I was little, into princesses and all that, and I did not know what lesbian was and thought only boy X girl relationships could be real and I never heard of LGBTQ, I simply never wanted to be with a guy. I wanted to be single forever because I did not like guys. Fast forward a few years to school, and I always had friends that were girls and still did not like guys. Fast forward again to 5th grade, I heard of LGBTQ but hardly considered it. All my friends are girls, I still have the single dream. 6th grade. I am at online school and figure out more of what LGBTQ is and think, "huh, girl X girl? Well... maybe..." and I started seeing it more and more, and figured out I like girls, in that way. I have never liked guys that way, and I always felt more comfortable around girls, so I am a lesbian. I still have male friends now though, one of them, kinda a friend, the other one sees me as more of a guy than a girl, like someone who would fight, and that his player personality cannot hit on.
