Wasn’t that far off…

Someone wrote…

I think I’m starting to turn into the same boy that I used to imagine I would fall in love with. I guess I wasn’t that far off…

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I can so identify with this. I was extremely confused with my sexuality because there were these guys that I was always fascinated with, that I thought I liked, so I thought I was straight. Well years of confusion later, I find out that I’m basically one of those guys, and my girlfriend wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Same thing happened to me =)
    It turned out the guys I “liked” were the guys I wanted to be, and it just so happens that my girlfriend feels the same as yours. I feel like you and I must be pretty damn lucky.

    Wow, I can relate to this as well! I still confuse who I like with who I want to be, becuase why can’t we love and aspire to the same aspects we know are desirable?^_^

    Another transman that can relate. I’ve never quite been sure whether I wanted to be with the boys I fell in love with or wanted to be them. Turns out I can have both.

    I’m like this with pretty much everyone I’m attracted to, regardless of gender. In fact, if there’s nothing I can admire about someone (or very little), I probably won’t be attracted to them.

    I feel the same way. I’ve always thought that if I met myself, I’d fall instantly in love. Or maybe that’s just my narcisissm… :)

    I can SO relate to this. I discovered that when one day I suddenly thought – ‘Oh my, I don’t actually want to kiss all that guys or anything else, I’m just jealous and want to be them, but not with them’

    <<<<This!!!!! All my life I thought I was "attracted" to emo guys that I secretly wanted to be, which ironically stopped me from figuring out that I'm pansexual & ftm.
