 Well, technically you wouldn’t be bisexual, but you can still be attracted to both genders in different ways (like platonically, aesthetically, or sensually). I’m somewhat new to the aro community, but I’m pretty sure you could refer to yourself as a “bi oriented aroace”. That implies that there’s some sort of attraction to both genders, but not in a romantic or sexual way. Not sure on this, but you could probably call yourself a biplatonic aroace perhaps?

Not exactly. As you're aroace, it's either aesthetic, sensual, or platonic attraction. I'll second on the label "bi-oriented aroace" as that's what I typically see people use within the community. Then again, there's also the possibility that, if you've had a history of comfort or identity within the label bisexual, it may not be related to your attractions at all, moreso a want of a sense of security/stability.

I think many people who are aroace still get squishes for people &, if you get them for both men & women, I think that makes sense. Though I'm not sure what the correct term would be for that.

Back in the day, ace folk & bi folk considered themselves the same group of people - since gender didn't matter so much in your experience of whatever sort of attraction it was you were feeling

The communities separated out a bit since then because there are some issues that affect aspecs more than the bis & vice versa. So if you feel a connection to both, be both. There are no direct definitions & it's all just language to help you feel comfortable in your own skin. It's a spectrum after all!
