Dear Aurora, Lately I’ve been more attracted to girls than guys and I don’t understand why I am feeling this way. I always pictured my life with a husband, two kids, and the American dream life and now my attraction to girls is getting in the way. Help me!
Aurora: Who’s to say that being attracted to girls doesn’t mean you can’t live the American dream? That same dream can happen with a wife and kids that you adopted or obtained through artificial insemination. With that being said, it can just be that you are going through a phase and confused about your sexuality, everyone at some point starts feeling attracted to the same sex at least in a small way at some point in their life. Not all these people end up being gay though. The best thing you can do is explore this attraction to girls and see if it is what you really want. And if it is, that doesn’t take your idea of having a loving family away, it just means that you will have a wife to love and support you instead of a husband.
