@Lucas Monteiro It's cool, I can see how someone would take that the wrong way.

I was so obviously different in the way I could recognize attractiveness, but not feel the attraction, that I started questioning if maybe my mind just didn't process information in a way that allowed me to be attracted to anything. 


Like, if I can't be attracted to people, do I really have cravings for specific foods? Do I actually have a favorite color? Do I have a favorite song? Or are all of these things just instances where I've recognized positive aspects and assumed that meant I liked it? Maybe I am just unable to have strong feelings toward anything.
