Im a heterofanmantic asexual. Probably counts as an aromantic, but due to my romantic fantasy I have a problem identifyin myself that way. So heterofanmantic it is ^^


I ticked in 'other' on both.

Aside from the physical urges of my body, I have almost no sexual desires. I am, however, a very strong romantic. I'll go to any length to please the woman I love, and the greatest reward I can get is a smile on her face.

Aromantic asexual.

I think when I grow up I'll become a book about the history of people cracking their knuckles. That way, cows won't feel like they have to smear cinnamon on the foreheads of elderly snowballs just to avoid being taxed for singing about jelly beans. This will also introduce people on Mercury to light bulbs, which would satisfy their desire to eat lemonade pizza and hug dolphins at the same time. :D

Aromantic Asexual. I picked other for attraction because while I do feel attraction on occasion (in the form of squishes), I haven't really picked up on who or what I am attracted to exactly.

I'm aromantic asexual.


For the attraction part though, I put homo, because when I do feel deep emotional attraction (though not what I would call romantic at all) it is almost always with another woman. (Although in fantasy and daydreams, it's always men...but I went with the most realistic one.) I'm a confusing puddle of things lol.

1) Greyromantic asexual. I have done some questioning recently, but I'll spare you the boring details :P for the time being, greyromantic still fits, and I'll likely stick to it for quite a long time.

2) Other. I have been attracted to people of different genders, not females yet, but I'm not ruling it out - it might happen in the future, who knows. Or maybe I'm turning aromantic. I don't really know (or care, for that matter).

I picked biromantic grey-A, as I'm still figuring out exactly where my romantic attraction lies. The grey-A part of things is pretty certain at this point, and biromantic does seem to fit. Panromantic is still on the table, pending further figuring out. I think the best, or most complete, set of descriptors for me would honestly be biromantic homosensual grey-bisexual. Mouthful, eh? :)

I identify bi-romantic asexual.

And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,

Labels on left and terminologies on below..

Terminologies into my profile...

Igender : The identity in which one takes the position of the worldview that people generally assumes too much about gender and gender is not coherently defined.

Cis-genderless : The perspective in which one has no gender mentality although does identity with his own sex as if one identifies with it by default.

Igsexual : The identity in which one takes the position of the worldview that sexual attraction is not coherently defined and cannot identity within a sexual identity unless a reference point of what's sexual attraction has been coherently defined.

Aegosexual AKA Autochorrissexual : The state of being in which one actively partakes into sexual activities which involves a disconnection between oneself and a sexual target/object of arousal; may involve sexual fantasies, or arousal in response to erotica or pornography, and does not experience any desire to be a participant in the sexual activities therein.

I didn't choose to be asexual. My sexual orientation has died on it own. Special note - Aegosexual/Autochorrissexual is arguably a varient of asexuality, or even a form of sexuality itself.

Romantic Asexual. I'm attracted to how the male body looks.

For me my Demisexuality is a lack of innate sexual desire until emotional connections have been made.

I call myself heteromantic asexual because what attraction I have is for the opposite gender but I have no desire for any relationship, romantic or otherwise.

I'm a romantic ace, and I chose 'other' because both my partner and I identify as genderless. I'm not really sure if that plays a role or what...

Other on both...


1) Asexual, repulsed romantic, but effectively near aromantic with SSRI medication.

2) Gyno.

Defining orientations by "attraction" is neither neccessary nor sufficient.


Therefore, I will not consider asexuality defined by "attraction" to be a valid orientation.
