Default Time to introduce myself

Hey everyone, I've been lurking around this site for quite some time now. I decided I might as well join, so here I am.

I've been questioning for a little over a year, but I've finally come to terms as being a lesbian, but somewhat willing to date a man (pretty unlikely though). So I'm pretty much just homoflexible, I'd say about a Kinsey 5 most of the time.

I'm only out of the closet to my therapist and a few friends. I have a goal to be completely out by 9th grade, which starts in late August.

So anyways, I'm glad I finally joined this site. I look forward to posting on here more.
