Thanks for the reply! I like posting to as much as I can if I can help with stuff as a) I like helping people and b) I have nothing to do. Mostly A, though! I'm going to an LGBT club on monday called Pride society, so I'm glad I have some place in school to be open about myself instead of trying to appear like a different person to my parents. If anyone wants a reply to their post or would like to ask me any questions, ask on any of my posts (Girls ask boys, Biphobia, etc.) I am happy to give help to those who want it. I like Childline because its a place where I can be myself. Also I usually reply to all posts on my subtopics between 4pm and 9pm every day, as thats when I am not at school.
I am new to childline so i just wanted to say hi!
I had to reply to this even tho its kinda old now because i am legit the same as you except a girl. I am 12 now and i am almost positive i am bisexual.
Can I just ask, have u come out to ur parents and friends? and if yes then how? Also, what‘s biphobia?? Maybe its self-explanatory, but...
Sorry if anyone thinks this is on the wrong board, but i wanted to reply to lucas’ post.

hi I'm new here so I guess this is the best place to start. I have always struggled making friends and keeping them and now I'm not my loud extrovert self. I hope this website will help.
Welcome to Childline, its great to have you here, I'm one of the hosts, Mel. I'm sure the lovely boardies will also make you feel very welcome.
The boards are full of lots of different people, so this can be a good place to talk to people who might be experiencing similar feelings to you.
Lots of people have worries about friendships, you could also post on the friends board for more support - here is the link:
Hope to see you around,
Welcome to the boards It's great you have posted here for some advice, sorry its taken a little while to reply. We do have a board, specifically for eating problems, here is the link:
Hope you can feel able to post here and get support from our lovely community.
Looking forward to seeing you around.

The boards are a big place which means we cover lots of different topics! But it can be hard to know where to post. If you’re not sure where the best place for your thread could be, this list might help:
Gender and Sexual Identity:
Health and Wellbeing:
Home and School:
Sex and Relationships:
The World Around Us:
Types of Abuse and Keeping Safe:
Remember too that we love to meet you all, so it’s always ok to post here in Introductions. Say hi and maybe introduce yourself a little!
