My parents put together my lack of dating in school with questions of sexuality. They asked more than once, but I was never comfortable with yes. (I didn't care for a relationship and was afraid of being put in a social box.) Although, being a hardcore Bible believer didn't help with my internal conflict of interest.
College showed me how silly the unwavering Bible belief was. (My favorite professor taught a course on how many questions still lie in the text and we had a few good discussions about how we had the same upbringing.) Along with conversations with friends in college and online, I found the reason I had denied my interest in guys. I had let others' perceptions come before my own.
From that moment my sophomore year, I began to feel completely comfortable with myself. Letting others know took a lot of nerve, but as the roommate and I had one of our late night off-to-bed discussions I felt my heart start beating out of my chest and words forming. I pulled them back a few times before finally letting out 'I'm into both sexes.' His response brought some relaxation 'Yeah, I could see that.' We talked a bit more and he shared he had thought I was gay...it was also relieving to hear he had though about being with guys.
The next day the roomie shared with the neighbors who were nonchalant. One still remains my best friend. The fun story, and the reason for all of the above is junior year I went out to supper with my mom. She had returned from the bathroom and asked who I had sent a text to as she sat. 'Corey; he says he wants crab legs the next time we come.' She surprised me by lacking any time to think about what I had said. 'Who's Corey? You dating him? Why haven't I met him?' We then talked about how 'my kind' were just looking for happiness and how she had had her suspicions but didn't want to mess with my life. She's a pretty awesome mom.
That was a lot; hope it helps you in the smallest way. My advice is to figure yourself out and when you are comfortable enough the discussions will come naturally.
