Default Confused

I have been having a bit of an identity crisis lately. I have thought of myself as gay for a long time. But the other day I was asked if I would date a girl and I thought about it and said if the right girl came along I would. But I know I'm not bi because I don't find the female body attractive. I like personalities for girls. But I am attracted to the male body. I just don't know what I am anymore and I know I shouldn't label myself but if I meet someone from the LGBT community what do I say? I don't feel comfortable at 23 not knowing my sexuality. Please give me some help

If you are not sexually attracted to females and just to males, then you are homosexual. Labels are not too important but I can understand wanting one just to simplify things.

Hmm. I find both anatomies attractive and am definitely bisexual. But if you don’t find female bodies attractive, only male, I would think that, yep, you’re a ‘G’ in the LGBTQ community!

Not sure what you mean by ‘personalities for girls’? I feel, my experience has been, that female thinking is so very different from males

and is So Much More Interesting. Girls, women, are made of Different Elements than you and me.
