www.google.com.au/images Finding someone to talk to. Sometimes it can be hard to come to terms with your sexuality. Especially if your telling yourself you need to be normal and heterosexual. You can become confused about how you feel and sometimes put on an act for others just to hide the truth. A way to stop the confusion is to talk to someone you trust about your feelings. If its not your best friend then a family member or a counsellor who would keep things confidential. Sometimes having someone help you understand yourself can be better then not knowing and wondering what if. Relationships Homosexual relationships can be the same as a normal relationship. Statistics show that these relationships have a higher rate of abuse then heterosexual relationships. Its only that this abuse isnt reported to anyone. But these relationships can also have a good loving environment for children if they ever wanted to adopt. Sometimes these relationships will last a lot longer than a normal relationship but statistics show they have a fraction of the length of a normal relationship. http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=IS04C02
