hujambo everyone! I have recently joined this site because I read an makala on a similar topic. This girl wrote about her inner fears that she might be bisexual, she alisema that she absolutely isn't against the gay community she is just unsure of what her sexuality might bring her (like me). I have a somewhat similar situation concerning my sexual orientation, I 'think' that I am bisexual. As a kid I never had huge crushes on neither boys nor girls.

When I was just six months old, my parents, who work for the State Department, moved to Washington DC to do their periodic check-in with Big Brother. They lived in a town called Reston, Virginia, which had plenty of swimming pools, one within walking distance of our house.
