Attempting to "figure her out" just to satisfy your curiosity is unethical, and could even put your friend at risk of homophobic harassment. However, if your friend is crushing on you or vice versa, you may need to address it. Instead of trying to settle the question of your friend's identity, figure out what your goal is.
Four years ago, at a bar in Brooklyn, I cried a few drunken, happy tears watching soccer titan Abby Wambach, fresh off a World Cup win, run ecstatically toward the stands to kiss her then-wife, Sarah Huffman. Wambach, one of the best players of all time, would be retiring from the game with a 5—2 win over Japan and yet another coveted title under her belt. For one thing, a lot of the players look like the kinds of hot mean girls with ponytails who both intimidated and titillated me in my closeted youth.
My friends and I were talking about when we lost our virginities recently, and I said, without thinking, "15". It's when I first had sex, after all. But I wasn't expecting the follow up question — was it with a girl or guy? And, if it's with a girl, how do lesbians lose their virginity?

These so-called flexisexuals say that although they are not gay or even bisexual, they enjoy flirting and kissing girls -- but they still enjoy having sex with men. One female senior at Hofstra University in New York said she is apt to turn to women when she's had too much to drink. The student, who declined to give her name for fear a future employer might Google her sexual escapades, is one of many young women who are more flexible in their attitudes about sex.
There's only so much you can learn about vaginas when your only experience is with your own. For as long as I can remember, I wanted to have sex with a girl. It started in high school when I realized I had a crush on a girl a year younger than me.
Some months ago a young woman came to see me who had just turned 18 — and had been questioning her sexual orientation for years. She had been attracted to girls since she was at high school, but she had had sex with both girls and boys.
