spaceprincess Posted April 3, 2022 Share Posted April 3, 2022 Obviously, anyone of any sexuality experiences things differently. However, I was wondering if anyone cloud give me any advice or information about grey sexuality? I simply want to be a good, healthy partner to them, whilst trying to figure out my own desires as a pan-romantic demi-sexual. They've only just recently figured out their sexuality after a near-break-up in which their anxiety about not feeling intense romantic inclinations made them anxious that they didn't love me enough. They said they do. They said they're in love with me, and want to be with me. However, I'm curious as to how someone can be in love with someone to whom they feel little romantic attraction towards, and as someone who needs a strong emotional, romantic bond, I'm a little worried we won't be able to suit each other's needs, despite loving each other. Firstly, in a moment where you're not feeling romantically inclined to someone you're in a relationship with, do you love them only as a friend? Or is there still a feeling of something more? When you're in a moment of little romantic attraction, do you begin to dislike the person you're with? Do you feel suffocated? Would you rather them go away? My grey-sexual partner has a very high sex drive, whereas, as a demisexual, I can only feel attraction if I feel romantically loved. I don't want this to be a barrier between us. Grey-sexual people, how do you feel towards those you're physically intimate with? Thirdly, is there anything I can do to cater to both of our needs? My partner's need for romantic space when they're not inclined in that moment for it, and my need to feel loved and appreciated in a relationship. If there are any grey-romantics or people who are in relationships with grey-romantics, what is your relationship like, how do you feel towards your partner, how do you cope? Lastly, what can your partner do to help you feel more comfortable in your relationship. Thank you for your time :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
