Being bisexual isn't all fun and games.

In fact, it can be incredibly hard. The first time I ever came out, I was terrified. Luckily, the person I told- my mom, was understanding and supportive. But not everyone is like that. I cannot express my anger when I get comments like, "wow, that must be so hard" and "does that make you... like, lesabian AND straight?

What people don't really understand is that we are not really different. We're different like different religions. Sort of the same, sort of different. We aren't a seperate species, and we aren't bad or harmful.

Also, we are aware of the insults people give us. One of the most hurtful things you can say to someone who is GLBT is, "that's sooooooo gay!" Because you might now know that they're GLBT. I know this firsthand. A lot of my family are very religous Catholics, and they don't accept that I'm bi. They refuse to talk to me, post anti-GLBT stuff on Facebook, etcetera. And it really hurts. But I have to be the better person and not be rude to them.

I'm a 16 year old female (about to graduate her sophomore year of high school) & everything used to be okay. I was a 4.0 student (up until now), I had a few friends to hang out with on weekends, I studied hard, I got along with people... But now I just feel terrible.

All of her yelling and bantering just makes me feel worse and worse & I just can't take it anymore.

My family isn't the richest. I mean, we do have money to afford necessities & I usually get things I "like but don't need", but college is super expensive & I know my parents can't afford a full term for it, so my mom is begging & pleading for me to get scholarships so I can get all my education. I've already gotten a D+ in math (everyone has crap grades in that class though - the teacher...

So here's my problem.
There is this guy I have known for a long time and he's nice. I mean he's nice. He has had a crush on me for the longest time. I have rejected him 3 times. Since then he has still tried to get out of the friend zone box. He said to one of his friends if I dated him I would solve 99 percent of his problems and I was right there so I said I will make you 99 more problems. After that he still hasn't given up. He left for a trip and now he is back from it. I don't want him to think I am a jerk. So what should I say to him?
