As a general rule, attraction to the same gender is not "just a phase," although you may still be learning more about yourself and your identity may change as you grow. Whatever desires or feelings you have now are valid, and should not be dismissed as temporary.

It depends on how long you've felt you are bisexual. Phases tend to come about quickly and leave quickly. If you feel that your bisexuality will never change, then it is not a phass.

Honestly, you're the only one who could answer this correctly. You could ask yourself these questions- Who am I sexually attracted to? Who am I romantically attracted to? How long has it been this way? If you've been attracted to the same and the opposite gender for a long time, no matter if it's equal or you prefer one gender over the other, you might be a bisexual. Hope this helps.

Sexuality is a very beautiful thing, however it can be really scary, especially if we feel we don't "fit in". The only person who could answer this is you all alone. If you like both genders, explore that sexuality, you aren't alone and there are many other bisexuals. Maybe you can find someone else, or why not look for support in the 7cups forum.

it could be a phase but it could also be permanent. a way to figure it out is to maybe meet someone of the same sex and/or the opposite sex and see how you feel with that person and just go with your gut feeling about the people that you like. if you dont feel any connection then maybe it is a phase but if you do and you feel like you like that person than it might not be a phase. dont try and deny to yourself what you are based on how other people want you to be.
