I want to be attracted to boys, and all my friends are of the opposite sex. And I like to paint my nails, and I am more sensitive and have more feminine tendency’s then other boys. I just don’t know?

Wanting to be attracted to someone doesn't mean being attracted to someone. If you like boys, or to bys and girls, then that is your sexuality. But if you just "want" to be attracted to boys, maybe because you feel it would fit with your "feminine" traits, then know this: you don't have to be gay to be feminine! You can't choose your attraction. But you can still enjoy your looks and personality, including the traits that are typically considered more feminine, whatever your orientation is.

Well, I can relate with you as well. I'm a gay feminine male- I prefer more feminine type things as well, like painting my nails wearing dresses, etc. I just love a sundress lol. I love the idea of being a wife one day. It's hard being more feminine than male and being a male sometimes even I ask myself still if I'm transgender MtF and just don't have enough money for the surgery or if I'm just feminine gay. I think I'm feminine gay because no matter how hard I try I'll never be able to be as sexy as I want to be as a feminine guy I have way too many male features so I allow myself to be the female when I'm in private. More openly and when in public, I dress like I'm straight but at home- look out, Jamie is coming out! On goes my dress, my eyeliner, the works and this helps me let her out and feel more open and myself. Call me crazy but it works until I get caught in my dress lol
