aro_elise Posted September 22, 2019 Share Posted September 22, 2019 i'm curious about your experiences with this, so please vote and comment! i'm not sure how well i phrased the questions and options, though; you'll see why when i list and explain my own answers: 1. i've always been sure of my sexual orientation. i've always identified as completely heterosexual, never questioned it. even when i experienced squishes or aesthetic attraction toward girls but didn't even know what to call them, i correctly identified the feelings and didn't worry about it. 2. no. i learned about aromanticism and the split attraction model at the same time, and essentially thought 'ok i'm definitely heterosexual, and i'd assumed i was heteroromantic, though not in those words...but could i be aromantic?' and so it began. 3. separate. i don't see how sexual and romantic attraction have anything to do with each other. like, not just in my own case, but in general--i don't understand. (i mean, i don't really understand romantic attraction in the first place, but...) if i were asked to name my orientation in one word, i wouldn't know what to say, because i have two. i don't even like when people call me straight, because that implies 'heterosexual and heteroromantic'. you guys can, though--the rules don't apply to my fellow aros. ? so yeah, chime in, and feel free to ask more questions! ✌️ 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
