What the Expert Says:

Confusion is normal.  No one signs up to be either gay or straight.  It is a sexual identity that develops over time. The famous Kinsey study of the 1940's from Indiana University stated that all people's sexual expression is between a one and ten on a scale and few people were one's or tens'--most were somewhere in the middle.  so if you feel right now you are in the middle you are like may adolescents.  Be careful about acting on your sexual feelings now--you can be hurt emotionally or physically and HIV is real; talk to your doctor in confidence to which you are entitled, and good luck.
