  • I know that there are people who think that there is a choice in sexuality but there isn't one. If she really is bisexual it isn't anything she can help. The fact that she trusted you enough to be open with you about it speaks volumes of the relationship between you two. I know that it probably isn't something you want to hear, but just remember that she doesn't feel very self assured at the moment either most likely. Also, I don't know if it's talked about that much in the open but a lot of teens deal with sexuality issues. It might just be a phase she's going through. I know a lot of people in my highschool thought they were bisexual, but most of them are married or in relationships with men today. The ones who aren't are happy to be the people they have grown to be. Just remember, either way, she's still your daughter: accepting her and loving her no matter what, even though that can be easier to say than practice.
