I voted for 11-15, but I remember fooling around with a female friend when we were little kids. But I don't think that was a sexual preference thing, really.

I think it was basically when I became sexually active. I started fantasising about women when I was 14-15.

I was seven or eight when I first kissed a girl , but I denied my attraction until I was thirty two.

It was 6-10 for me, I was attracted to a girl who was a few years older and a family friend. She was just gorgeous to me then. I felt very ashamed of my feelings and hid from them for years.

Once I realised and accepted, I started to realise the feelings towards women had always been there.

I was around 16-17. I had a friend at school I wasn't too close to, as she was a year ahead of me, but I could just always rely on her for some nice small talk when we were waiting for our parents after school. The two losers whose parents wouldn't buy them a car. So, she was more like a close acquaintance.

 

And then one night, after a school concert, she came up to me and hugged me and kissed my cheek to say goodbye, which was strangely intimate for our type of relationship, and when we pulled away there was undeniable tension between us. And it just hit me after that. A huge moment of clarity that didn't feel so much, "Oh my God!" as much as it felt, "Oh... okay, then."

 

And as I looked back, I realized that I had always been more attracted to women than usual. But, at that age, I believed it was because I admired their beauty and wanted to look like them, as opposed to be with them.

I was around 12 when my friend and I were going to 'muck' around. I really wanted to do it but was so afraid of someone finding out so I chickened out! As a teenager I always had thoughts of being with other girls, but I pushed it to the back of my mind as I was worried what my parents, friends etc would say if they found out. Coming from a country town was even more off putting as everyone knows everyone elses business. I have finally accepted it at the age of 30 and hope that I get to experience being with a woman soon!

My best friend just after high school wrote me a letter telling me she thought she was in love with me. She was lesbian, but at the time I didn't think I had feelings toward woman. I didn't have the same feelings toward her, and she seemed to respect that. One day, she introduced me to one of her friends and when my eyes met hers for the first time, I felt like a bomb exploded inside of my stomach and I seriously couldn't form a single word as I was trying to say "my name is..." She laughed said some sarcastic remark flipped her hair and walked away...I was fuckinggg hoooooked!!! We ended up hanging out, kissing but nothing more ever came of it. That was when I was 19, and now 27 and haven't met a single female that's ever sparked that kind of reaction out of me...oh once my he's friend found out we kissed, she ditched me :/ some bestie lol or maybe I deserved it I don't know but there was no denying the feelings I had!

I remember being a 14 year-old teenage girl standing in the bathroom at home saying loudly to myself "im just gonna admit it to myself now, I AM BISEXUAL, YES I AM BISEXUAL!" But I cannot recall what brought me to this conclusion.. I was pretty experimental as a youngster so it might've been one of the many many experiences I had back then :P

I put 21-25 because that's when I knew that I was attracted to guys as well :P

 

Until the age of 16, I was very umm...self-fulfilling :P. I was never attracted to anyone at all and didn't even feel any kind of void in my life for not being attracted to anyone. I even wondered at that age if I was just too arrogant for not deeming anyone worthy of me :D. Then slowly I started developing crushes on women but I didn't think too much of it. Then I had my first kiss (with a woman) at the age of 21. We were together for 2 years before breaking up amicably. That was the phase when I thought I might be gay. So I actively tried to go out with a guy to find out what my sexuality is. And that's how I met my current boyfriend. I remember the day when I felt this sexual tension between us for the first time. That was the day when I was absolutely sure that I am attracted to him and that I am bisexual :)

I knew that I was attracted to girls but I didn't realize my friends didn't have the same feelings. We would look at photos of models and movie stars for hours. When I said I was crazy for Madonna it was in a whole different way then when they said it. The first time I kissed a girl, it just seemed so right and natural. Boys took a lot more effort and time to get use to. :-)

Somewhere around 11 - 15 years old. Some weird occurrences when I was younger but I honestly didn't really realize it until the age frame I posted. I have always faught it, when I didn't and succumbed I felt mightily guilty where it ate me up inside. Now I am exploring and embracing it in a way, with the help of DH. Regardless, I still was always attracted to guys. I just wasn't crazed like the average guy crazy girls and found I could effortlessly hang out with the guys like one of them. I am feminine but not girly girly, I like bumming or slumming with my wardrobe from time to time too. LOL

I put down 11 to 15. I don't really think I thought much about it before that. Around 11, I discovered "self pleasuring" and I remember that I fantasized about both boys and girls -- but probably more girls. I had some experiences with a girl friend when I was 12 (almost 13). I knew they were "naughty", but at the same time very exciting. I also knew I didn't want my parents or anyone else to find out and, as far as I know, they didn't.

I voted 6-10. I wasn't aware of such a thing as being bisexual, but I remember liking both boys and girls. I was obsessed with breasts in that I wanted-no NEEDED- to touch them. Also, at that age I was crushing really hard on sailor moon, sailor jupiter, and tuxedo mask lol.

Around 7, i had a girl friend who would play house with me. I guess the signs that I was bi were always there...but I just ignored them mostly until college. I had a friend that I would fool around with until my mid teens. We would act like we did it to just feel good and practice for the guys...but I now know we just really enjoyed each other. I really treasure all those hours we spent between each other's thighs...

 

Sad because the guilt of that relationship (our parents are close friends) eventually stopped that activity...perhaps if we were bolder teens we could have fought the odds. Oh well.

 

It took me a while to process my feelings. Glad I know what I am now.

At 13 I was already a mom and the last thing I wanted to be around, was a guy. At 14 I met a female who changed the course of my life.
