The kinsey scale says they're "not sure what my deal is"...

Then it said good luck. Thanks.

Anyone know of a better test?

This isn't really what you want to hear, but online tests aren't really all that accurate anyway. Think less about finding an exact answer and look more at who makes you happy. Others can give better and more detailed advice than I, but I hope this helps some.

There's another one called Klein Sexuality test or something. It's the one that uses your "past sexuality", "present sexuality" and "ideal sexuality". It can help you understand how much you accept your sexual orientation, in my opinion. Yet, it's not 100% accurate and you'll need more than those online tests to figure out which label fits you best. You might even preffer to not use anything.

One thing I've learned about online tests is they inaccurate as hell, especially the so called "Kinsey scale" while there might be one small grain of truth to it, however they are. Never really accurate. I've taken so called "orientation tests" that said I was bloody straight! And I am anything but. So yeah. Only you can truly figure out how you feel, hope this helps somewhat,

Who are you drawn to and can't keep you eyes off of? Who captivates you? Is it always men (straight)? Is it always women (lesbian)? is it both, but more females than males or vice versa (bisexual)?

(moth to a flame type effect)

A test won't tell you. A good look at yourself and your behaviors will help you figure out who you are at this point in your life.

Ask a close friend what they think. Most people have a pretty good gaydar.

Most tests have pretty bad questions that make it hard to identify to so they end up with very inaccurate results. Don't look at them too seriously.

Re: The kinsey scale says they're "not sure what my deal is"...

The vast majority of such tests online are simply web traffic generators with questions pulled out of someone's ass with absolutely no scientific validity or study.

I wouldn't pay any such test any mind. The only way to know is to look inside yourself. Your responses to varying mental stimuli (fantasies you create in your own mind about, alternately, men vs women) when masturbating without porn) and noting where your eyes wander (toward men or women) when you are out and about are far more accurate predictors than any online test.

I just did a random one online, as my gender not my sex, and it said mostly homosexual
