Sexual Orientation

Recommended Posts

I'm an aromantic-but-leaning-towards-hetroromantic asexual.

 

This is mainly because of my Asperger's Syndrome, which makes me intensely dislike physical contact in almost all forms, and partily because I haven't been given a good impression of... intimacy in the past. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't abused- I just had a nasty experiance that some could call assult when I was younger, by someone my age at the time, and I've been bullied using sexual taunts all my life. It's given me the impression that it was either something disgusting that people like my bullied liked or something that it was sick and wrong for me to want.

 

But I do like looking at a handsome man. wink.gif

You know, I haven't thought deeply about this at all. I know what I like, I don't know what to call it or if I even should call it anything. tongue.gif

 

Usually I find women far more good looking but have never felt a connection with one. I've only felt that with one man that I'm still with. I guess I'll go with Pansexual, because if he decided he wanted a sex change it wouldn't change anything with me.

Homoromantic Asexual.

 

Who doesn't look great with a lady on their arm?

 

/*womanizing statement achieved*

 

(Also, I'm not really a womanizer tongue.gif)

Awww... So I can't start singing "You're a womaniser, womaniser, womaniser"?

 

(Is it me or does that make it sound like you turn people into women?)

Hetero, but maybe coming to terms with the fact that I'm a little bi-curious, even if I will NEVER, EVER even try to act on that.

 

So, for all intents and purposes, completely hetero.

lol I WISH I could turn people into women.

 

That'd be awesome.

 

Sadly, I have to find my women the old fashioned way: leg work and bad flirting.

 

Sure, go ahead and sing it. Just cause I ain't one doesn't stop the song from being fun.

Rent a Havanese puppy. They are, in the parlance, 'babe magnets'. I have joked it's too bad I'm not attracted to women since my puppy seems so good at getting them to flock in my direction : )

 

Anyhow, I'd be asexual and not particularly romantic.

Heterosexual, with a very few previous experiences with the same gender and not disliking them. I guess it depends on the person. Not sure if that makes me a pansexual, though.

I'm sort of a cross between pan/demisexual, and greysexual, I suppose.

 

I like to think I can be attracted to anyone, but I tend to fall for someone after knowing them for a while, and then simply because of their personality. I don't have to see someone to fall head over heels.

 

Saying that, I've liked 3 people.

 

1 - Guy

2 - Current girlfriend

3 - Girl in Sweden...

 

Though, saying that, I've been with my girlfriend for the past 5 years, and love her with all my heart, and am not ready to leave her. Despite the fact that I had a momentary interest in someone else, as well as her. Though I could be someone who mixes up friendship and love as well.

 

Who knows!

Either shy hetero, happily bisexual, or asexual with a heavy dose of delusionment. huh.gif

 

The thing is, I have a really hard time picturing myself in a relationship - yet I really want one. Especially with another girl. However, I've never actually been in love with someone of my own gender and sex. I've had a heavy crush recently, but it kind of blew over as we became real friends and spent more time together. On the other hand, I've never been in love with a guy either and is way too insecure about my physical appearance to make the first move. But I still adore those smart-down-to-earth-types of people, who tend to be guys.

 

In the end, I may just settle for shy, extremely picky bisexual.

 

Man. I'll never figure this out. I'm gonna end up a lonely, old cat-lady. xd.png

Pretty asexual for the moment I think. That may change later. Occasionally I think about sex, and I think it might be something I'd like to try if (and only if) I found the right person, but most of the time I'm just rather disgusted by the idea. I suppose that would make me demisexual?

Im straight, well technicall y im gay but all guys are gay to a certain degree.

For ex, if a guy is reading this,if you watch porn, what kind? I highly doubt u only watch girl-on-girl. That proves that you and all other dudes, including me, are gay to a certain extent.

Honestly, am I the only one that finds that allll these various terms for sexual orientation to be doing more harm than good? I've chatted with so many people who think that they might be this, might be that, they have small signs of x so they must be x, or maybe y, yadda, yadda, yadda. Was really bad with this one young girl I talked to who was just saying that because there were so many, she didn't know what she fit in to. She talked to me and told me that she was this new one every month just about. Turned out she was just plain ol' hetero with a low sex drive.

 

I guess it just boggles me, seeing terms like pansexual are just too similar to bi to really stand out to me. Honestly, my first thought when I hear pansexual is: "Really? ... Everything...? OK, uh, what about that horse? What about my couch? What about this thing I just found under my couch? Are you attracted to all of those, too?"

 

And don't get me started on asexuality. Chances are, you will find one thing mildly arousing in your life. Normally, while you're doing the act. It's a rare person who doesn't.

 

I guess it all just bothers me because sexuality is such an intimate, private thing, and using these terms rather than just explaining, in plain words, that you have a low sex drive or just like everyone or really need to get to know someone first, makes it all seem so cold.

 

Just my two cents on something that always irks me a little, feel free to bash, I'm sure you all have valid points. =V

I agree with most of your points, actually. Not the "being asexual is impossible" or "pansexuals are into my couch" things, but all of the labelling.

 

"Hey, what's your sexual orientation?"

"Well, for the moment I identify as homo-hetero-demi-dog-o-sexual. But I'm asexual on weekends".

 

What I'm trying to say is, there are many different situations that can make you aroused, and it's really not needed to make up a new term for each one. It just makes it way more confusing.

 

Look at some of the comments.

 

Panromantic demisexual

I'm pansexual, and maybe slightly asexual...

Slightly bisexual female.

 

And the more confusing ones...

Either shy hetero, happily bisexual, or asexual with a heavy dose of delusionment.

I'm sort of a cross between pan/demisexual, and greysexual, I suppose.

 

Many of you are confused as to what to call your sexual orientation, and resort to labelling it as a mix of a million different "terms".

 

Me? I like guys.

Precisely. It's like, I know that someone can be pansexual and asexual, but they just seem like such... muddled terms that people throw around. Most pansexual people I've met are just bi with lower standards, and most asexuals just have low sex drives. And, if I may be honestly, two of the "asexuals" I've met have had higher sex drives than me. =|

 

I like tough dudes and sub chicks. I don't think there's a term for that outside of sexist, though.

Well, I'll say that I appreciate the different categories (even if there may be a few too many for someone who hasn't really thought about it) since that's just how my mind works, as well as having the nice feeling of knowing what the hell is 'wrong' with me. I am nearly thirty-seven and can count on one hand the number of times I've felt anything approaching sexual attraction and even that I'm not certain about. Therefore, I am not heterosexual, I am asexual.

 

"It's a rare person who doesn't." Yes, indeed, and yet, that doesn't mean the person doesn't exist, does it? It hardly means that, on the wilds of the Internet where millions and millions of people converse, that you might not run across several such people.

 

And really, if someone's sex drive is so low as to be, for all practical purposes, non-existent, why shouldn't they call themselves asexual and 'opt out' of a world that holds no interest for them?

Technicaly bi, functionaly gay at the moment. When single I tend to find myself attracted to both sexes. When I'm in a relationship (as now - for 8 years almost), my attraction pretty much contracts to just the person I'm with *shrugs*. My partner is male, so functionaly gay.

I'm sorta confused on the whole "demi-sexual" thing. Isn't that the same as being hetero?

Anywho, I'm a girl, and I like guys.
