    This may be an unpopular opinion, but I don't believe that human sexuality is defined by the three classifications, gay, bi and straight. Sexuality is a spectrum, rather than a classification. We all have a variation in our sexual attractions, while society has fed us the idea that we are this, that or the other. Sexual attraction is not a clear line, but rather the changing reality of our desires.

    One hundred percent, YES! Sexuality is such a strange thing. People like to think that there are very strict rules, gay guys only like guys, lesbians only like girls, and bi's like both. That's it. That's all the types that there are. Except... that it's not.

    A man who identifies as gay will mainly be attracted to guys, yes. He may only be attracted to guys as well. Or, he might meet a woman and become attracted to her after getting to know her. He might fall in love with her personality and then her looks. Or maybe never her looks. It completely depends on the person.

    Someone who has been straight their entire lives and never even entertained the thought of being attracted to the same sex may become attracted to the same sex if the right person comes along. That doesn't mean they are suddenly gay. Or it might. Totally depends on the person.

    I'm not sure exactly but I can comment on what I've witnessed. I have two male family members who fit into the gay category. From childhood up, he dated only men but loved a woman's company. I once asked him about this and he told me that he learned from his women associates. The next question was, "have you ever had sex with a woman" and he said no without any explanation. That was my que to shut up.

    My other family member told me he had had sex with a woman and after being in a relationship with her, he preferred to be with a man. I believe he was in love with her but didn't want me to know that. I don't know if if that was women in general but I do know about her.

    I've asked a gay really good guy gay Friend of mine that same question just recently and he said that he can think a female is pretty but not be sexually attracted to them at all. They are attracted to men.

    I am an expert on this question because I married a gay man. I was in a relationship with my high school sweetheart for 3 years during school. We moved in together a year after graduation and was engaged the next year. We were married when we were 20. I gave birth to his twin sons five months after he told me he was gay. He had dated multiple girls prior to me. He always had a feminine demeanor but I thought that was due to him lacking a father figure. I honestly was 100% shocked the day he told me. To this day his explanation to me was that I made him not want to be gay. He says our relationship was so good that he found it easy at first to hide his true self and maintain a heterosexual commitment. He claims it was the guilt of his thoughts that led him to finally tell me the truth. That was 18 years ago and we are still friends and have managed to successfully co-parent our children. So in my world the answer to your question is yes, if the person follows their heart.

    It is completely possible for that scenario to exist. For example, sexuality isn't just the gender you're attracted to. Its the kind of person you're attracted to. So for example, a gay male might be attracted to a female if she exhibits certain male features and characteristics (maybe muscular appearance, dominant personality etc)
