2 thoughts:  You may be too young to really know. But even if it turns out that you are bisexual, why would you have to tell your parents?  I don't mean " keep it a secret."  I just don't understand the need to feel you must tell your parents about your personal sexual life. I never talked to my my parents about my sexuality.  As a parent, I spoke freely about sexual matters but there own personal sexual preference was up to them.

You won't like my answer but I'm going to tell you.

I'm really sick and tired of people telling me and the world they're  bisexual, transgender, gay, homosexual, pansexual, nonsexual, asexual, almost sexual, closet sexual and any other kind of sexual.

I'm over 55 and I have never, ever said to anyone, in a conversation, group, in therapy, in a boat, up a tree, sad, happy  at work or school, TV, radio, blog, family, friends or the world.

Hey world you know what I'm heterosexual.  I'm just kind of tired of people always wanting to tell people what sex they are  or  they want to change and tell the world and everyone they should agree and love them and sing Kumbaya.

I don't care what sex you are in your mind or body and knowing wwouldn't  change how I feel about you. Only your personality would affect my thoughts about you.

I just say keep it to yourself and move on.

Let's assume you DO know what your sexuality is.

The problem is with the way that humans grow and change at your age.

As you continue to become who you are, one day you are turning to the east, another to the west, not to mention the occasional walk to the south and to the north. 

So none of us, including you, can predict exactly where you are going to end up.

You can tell them "at the moment, I think I am bisexual; and I am also sure that I am, in fact, bisexual."

And that is the ONLY accurate way to express your current orientation.

I'm baffled why people feel the need to make an announcement about something that is so very personal.  So, you're bisexual. So what. Not to be rude - but seriously. What do you want your parents to do with that information?  Fight with you about your sexuality? It's your business, not theirs. So my opinion - for what it's worth - is to say nothing. There is nothing to be gained by sharing this.
