Romantic Orientation vs. Sexual Orientation

Robespierrethecat Robespierrethecat
I'm mostly just a big queer mess.

I just like androgyny and boobs and dicks and I don't even know.

I'd say I'm homoflexible-romantic and homoflexible-sexual! In verrryyy specific circumstances I find some women romantically and sexually attractive. MANY of my friends have different romantic and sexual attractions, it's pretty normal among my friend group.

I'm somewhat aromantic by choice at the moment, although I would say I let myself be panromantic, when I let myself be.

However in terms of sexual attraction, I'd say I'm somewhat demisexual, when I'm panromantic, and somewhat graysexual, due to lack of available things to turn me on, like what I like is kind of hard to find, so kind of kinky in that regard.

Also somewhat pomo/ "it's complicated" in sexual regards.

And a little lesbian, and mesophillic (although I'm not entirely sure I like the word/ thus have trouble identifying with it), and a bit autosexual.

Idk.. I think my romantic attraction is quite simple, but my sexual orientation isn't.

I'm panromantic and demi-heterosexual. I have never wanted to have a sexual relationship with another woman. Not even a little bit. Not even a curiosity towards it. But I have crushes on other women, and have a very gentlemanly attitude. Some friends who role-played with me online, with me in a male role, have forgotten that I was a female. I have a bit of a White Knight thing, and I've been the designated "boyfriend" to plenty of single friends.

But... when I experience sexual attraction, it's only to men. Some people (notably my ex when I told him about my crush on one of my female friends) have suggested that I'm bisexual in denial or repressed, but I'm not. So the running joke is that I'm a gay man in a woman's body.

I am very attracted to women, though I have never been intimate with a woman I would like to, but I usually gravitate to men for relationships because I like a dominant partner. I suppose if I found a dominating woman who pursued me then I might be in a relationship with her.

I'm married to a man and didn't really come into my "bihood" 'til 7 yrs into the marriage. I know that I am attracted to women now and, based upon previous friendships, I'm rather sure I could easily fall, romantically, for a woman the same way I have with men.

Same. Sorta confusing but...ooh well.

This is kind of confusing, but I find that gender doesn't matter to me when it comes to sexual relations and it also doesn't matter when it comes to romantic relations. To me, a great personality is the best!

I'd rather fuck a guy than date one. I'm into women romantically and sexually. I guess it depends on the person?
