Well, heres a little background. I am 15 years old and attend an all boys catholic private high school. A while back I started to develop feelings for a good friend of mine, I think. I have read many of the articles out there for teens and I am not sure if it is just the phase that most teens go through at around this age. I have done a alot of thinking alone for hours on end, but I keep coming back the answer that I do have feelings for him and that I am gay. I could care less about what the student body thinks of me (my rep is ruined for another matter), but I do not want to get him shunned by everyone and put him in an embarassing position, or lose his friendship. Any suggestions on how I can be sure that this is not a phase, and what to do about it? I would greatly appreciate it, thanks everyone.
