Being a lesbian isn't about sex. It's about loving who you want to love, and yes, part of that is sex. But just because she isn't attracted to anyone does not mean she can't be gay. But whether you believe it or not, you aren't the issue. It's what she thinks, and it's about what she feels more comfortable with. I repeat: It's not about you.
You're gonna have to let her go. And you should be nice about it. Say, 'I understand that you are gay and I'm sorry I was such a dick about it. I want you to be happy, because I care about you a lot. I'm going to miss you.' Then let her say what she wants, and that's all, folks.
NOTE: Do not say any of that if you don't fucking mean it. [ Violettree's advice column | Ask Violettree A Question ]

You cannot show her anything. If she thinks she likes girls and not guys there is nothing you can do to change that, it's just how she feels. Let her go, it is the respectful thing to do.
Telling someone that they are wrong about their sexuality is incredibly insensitive and assholeish. You are not them, you do not know how they feel, and dealing with this is hard enough without a guy trying to convince her otherwise because he doesn't want to be single again.

If you can't take the 'not knowing' and the drama of her questioning and figuring it out, then you need to break up with her.
mercury answered Sunday September 2 2012, 4:48 pm: What's the'lesbian type'?If she says so,maybe it's because she truly feels attracted to other girls.And perhaps she is afraid of that,because she may feel embarrassed.I recommend that you talk to her,but letting her know that there's nothing wrong about being gay.Think about it.Would she really break up with you if she didn't actually feel that something serious is going on?
Cheer her up!But accepting anything she tells you.Hope it helps! [ mercury's advice column | Ask mercury A Question ]
