from what you have said you could quite possibly be a lesbian. but i wouldn't totally rule anything in or out at 16. your mum could still be right, it could be a phase. basically what i'm saying is to wait a bit longer and see if you feel the same next year or the year after. i don't know if anyone can say for complete certain what their sexuality is during puberty, so just wait and see.
