Your hormones are raging and no if you cannot picture yourself being with a guy, then you cannot possibly be gay. People don't wake up one day and become gay. They are either born that way or not. If this continues to bother you, then talk to your parents about seeing a child psychologist. If you look on the forum, you will see that the majority of the posts are about HOCD so that should make you feel better. What you don't want to do is start "testing" and "analyzing" and "second guessing" everything. The thought is making you fearful and when you accept the thought, i.e., no longer fight it, the fear goes away and so does the thought. Just because you say to yourself "Okay, whatever, I'm gay" doesn't mean you are going to run out and want to be with a guy. All it is doing is taking the fear away and getting you out of the irrational thought cycle.
