How do you perceive the body odour of the gender you're attracted/not attracted to?
It's hard to say for sure. Either all of the ladies I interact with are too covered in perfumes and conditioners etcetera or I just don't notice because I'm not attracted to them.

On the other hand I definitely notice men. This may be getting tmi for some of you haha, but I absolutely love it when I can smell a guy. To the point that even having a guy walk by on a warm day can be a turn on. :P It has to be an accent to other attraction, though. Obviously if I'm not attracted physically then I don't really want to smell you. It's all a package deal.

I think it's all biology. Pheromones and whatnot.

I've never noticed a girl having a smell, and guys only smell when they're haven't showered or are really sweaty which is gross, so... yeah. Scent doesn't play a role in it for me afaik.

GUYS!
I did it!
I came out to my brother! And told him about my boyfriend! And the fact he was 19.
He told me to be careful, and then went to tell me about his little gay experiences...
And now he's engaged to the woman he's been dating for years...
It's weird.

Congratulations! I'm sure most of us here know how hard that can be, especially to a peer rather than an adult. Glad he seemed understanding, he clearly cares for you as a brother which is great.

I always wished I had an older brother, I think it would have been pretty cool.

Yes. Women smell great to me, whereas guys don't seem to give off any kind of scent unless they are sweaty. But yeah, all women smell good to me- my girlfriend especially.

Congrats! I would tell you the same thing, you can't trust older men. My girlfriend's ex being one year older scared the crap out of me and is still unsettling. But I guess my ego was at stake

What's it like dating someone older? or younger? I can't imagine myself doing either.

Yeah, he's kinda stupid sometimes, but I love the poor lug.
Both he and his girlfriend understand, and they both have a metric ton of bi/gay friends.

Well, it's pretty much the same as dating someone whose the same age. Especially with him because I believe I'm his first...
But I love him so much, but, the distance kills me...

Yay! *claps* I'm glad for you :D

That's cool you were able to work up courage to tell him. Now you guys must be a little closer.

Ehh, as close as we'll ever get.
I still want to whack his head for being stupid sometimes though.

I think you underestimate your closeness, tbh. The fact that he felt comfortable enough with you to tell you specifics about any 'gay' experience he's had, or any sexual experience at all, says a lot. My sister knows I'm gay and I wouldn't feel comfortable even approaching a sexual topic with her, nor would she with me. I envy that a bit.

I always wanted a brother too, though.

Also re: smells... the guy I was dating wore Britney Spears perfume and I really liked him, and my roommate that I'm slowly falling in love with wears men's cologne. So there's nothing to that for me.

I believe the question pertains only to natural body odour(s), not manufactured fragrances to which we are not genetically predisposed to react.

Somehow, I feel like the rest of my family knows somehow, because, while I was working in the kitchen making dinner with my mom and sister, they told me that they're "proud of me for saying that" and my mom said "I'm proud of you for just being you" or something to the sort, and my dad wanted to talk to me earlier...

If you just told a close family member, and then the rest of your family suddenly knows, I'd say it's pretty obvious what happened.

Well, at least he made things easier for you, unless you wanted to tell your close relatives personally. Lol

I mean, now you know that they're fairly accepting of it, so I guess it wasn't too bad. He should have never said anything in the first place, though.

Eh. I know I'll have to go face-to-face on them with the topic later.
Just hearing it from the brother a good source does not make.

It's sort of bad etiquette to just.. tell the whole family something personal like that, but he probably knew they'd accept it.

I'm glad it's going well

Haha, but at least you're no worse than anyone else in your situation I think if they were okay with it so far it's only reason to be confident about the future ahead.

And yet it's really common. At least from what I've heard from people. If you tell one family member and they think another family member will be okay then they often tell them without asking you first. You know, because "OMG, Bobby told me he was gay. Me! I have to tell someone!"

I had a friend write to me that he thought he was gay before. We stopped talking for 3 years after >.< But when I started to speak with him again, he told me it was just a phase. Do these things happen?

Yeah, they do. Especially when you're going through puberty and/or if you've been raised in such a way that you didn't learn or talk much about sexuality so that you won't necessarily have the frame of reference that you might ideally have.

Lots of people think they might be gay because they really are gay, or bi, or even trans, but then decide they'd rather live as straight or at least tell people they're straight, and maybe that's how they really feel. (I'm of the camp that thinks sexuality can be fluid for some people, but that's another topic.) And plenty of people go through feeling like they might be gay because they might have strong feelings for one particular person or another, not necessarily sexual or romantic, but strong enough that they wonder if there's something else at work.

I just hope he made the right decision ._. But then again it is high school, and everything happens during high school.

Lolololololol
yeah, well, it's nothing big, in my opinion. It's maturity that matters; not age. Well, personally. LEGALLY age still matters. xD Too big a difference can seem odd . . . and obviously dating someone too young is just really freaking creepy. By that I mean <13, and that's if there's less than a four year difference between you. A) because it just seems odd for a twenty-year-old to date a thirteen-year-old, and B) it's kinda illegal in most places. However, if we take minors out of the equation (but I am one, so it's somewhat hard to do in my personal cases xD) then . . . well, the difference doesn't matter at all. Just maturity.
And even then that can be worked around in some cases. xD

As for the whole smell topic . . . UM, I actually understand this question completely. And it can certainly get some odd answers . . . like most people here say, they don't like the smell of sweaty people. When it comes to guys, or, more specifically, my guy . . . I kind of enjoy the smell of sweat. It's odd, but hey, whatever.
When it comes to girls? Normally they smell good, but that's typically artificial. And I'm kind of not shoving my face into the armpits of every female I see.

@FenrirDarkWolf - Regardless, I think it's good to get such things out in the open. Sometimes we need an outside mind to help us be objective. And sometimes it takes someone outside of the equation to find it's solution. So, while it can be a bit . . . um, rude, I guess, for someone to tell others that, it can be helpful. And, honestly, if it's one family member telling others, and they're genuinely trying to be helpful, I think that's . . . somewhat more okay than in other cases, if you know what I mean?
