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

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).

Posted 12 September 2013 - 12:08 AM

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? :)

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.

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


"I Am Who I Am" by Lee Ryan.

Small rant: One thing that really bugs me is when people use the words gender and sex as if they are the same. What if you were born a man but feel like a woman? Or a woman who feels like a man? Gender is between the ears and sex is between the legs.
My own personal definition of Sexual Attraction: Directed sexual desire. An attraction that causes sexual desire towards that gender, genders or someone. Someone that "turns you on" and not just being horny.

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...

2) Gyno.
