Hola, my name is Aly. I'm 18 and from the USA. Unfortunately, due to circumstances at home, I left without notice and came to stay with my friend in Canada. I've been attracted to both sexes for as long as I can remember. However, my home was extremely religious, and coming out as an atheist to my mother was catastophic enough. My father still has no knowledge of my atheism or my bisexuality. But I have been living in a supportive and safe environment for 2 months now, and have been noticing that I am more attracted to women than I am to men. There are some men that I find attractive, but whenever I imagine my significant other, I always wonder what it would be like to date a woman. I've only ever dated men. I have no clue how to go about dating women. I've only been 18 for two months, and already I've completely uprooted my life. I just graduated highschool a month before my birthday, and now I'm in a new place with a new family (They have already told me they adopted me :) ) Well, I guess now I just want to start exploring who I really am, versus what my parents always told me I am.
Anyways, if you are wondering about my personality (doubt it :q ) I love singing, writing, drawing, woodcarving, crafts, and reading. My favorite genre to read and write is fiction/fantasy. I've written a couple of novels, but none good enough to publish yet, though I've published a few poems, and had an anti-bullying essay published in the New York Times and will be published in Harvard ED magazine in the fall. I like to draw characters from movies (usually kids' movies), animals, and anything that my hand wants to create.
I'd really love to meet some new people. I am sure I'm not the only one here who has struggled with acceptance and trying to find herself/himself. I'm very open to new friends, and would love if anyone wants to send a message or email my way.
Thanks so much for reading! Post some about yourself too, if you like, I'd love to hear about the people here!
Aly. xxx
