Sexual orientation or preference is defined by a person's enduring emotional, romantic, sexual, or affectional attraction to other people. It sounds like your boyfriend is exploring his feelings and is not sure about his preference for males or females, but may feel attracted to both at this point.
Over time he will probably find that he is drawn more to males or females, or both if he is truly bisexual. Some teens find it helpful to consult websites for more information such as www.youthresource.com or talk with a trusted friend or adult about their feelings.
