Different types of attractions, and that/how attractions are different from actions!


Recommended Posts

Okay, so there are six main types of attractions (some say seven). And they are divided into two types: Physical and Emotional attractions.
Physical attractions are sexual attraction, sensual attraction, and aesthetic attraction. Emotional attractions are platonic attraction, romantic attraction, and alterous attraction.

There are also different terms or words for each attraction, like how crush is used for someone you are romantically attracted towards, there is squish for a person you are platonically attracted to. 

Also, an attraction is different from your favourability towards an action associated with said-attraction. Both of these are also different from the positivity of said action attributed with said attraction.

It is also possible for someone to lack any one type of attraction, or experience it differently from other attractions (say, being gray-homo-romantic, and demi-aegosensual, and being panaesthetic). It is also possible for someone to lack all of these attractions, or experience little of them.

Alterous attraction is a sort of attraction involving attraction to someone which is not platonic or romantic, kind of like non-binary, but for attractions, as I saw someone put it. https://www.lgbtqia.wiki/wiki/Alterous_Attraction

I hope I am not being too confusing, and I hope that it helps! Give me feedback on this, please, and tell me if it needs improvement.

Would alterous attraction have aspect of worship to it? I'm thinking about older types of relationships and how there sometimes seem to be a bit of awe to them.

Perhaps? I'm assuming it does, as platonic and romantic attraction certainly seem to (to an extent, romantic attraction seems to have a lot more of this, and stronger, too).
It is an emotional attraction!

I feel like most platonic attraction has much less worship than a romantic one.

I also wonder, what kind of attraction would you call someone being attracted to be a follower? Like attracted to a leader of some kind, be it spiritual, business etc. I was reflecting if that could be seen as alterous attraction. If you're attracted emotionally. Not just following them for some practical reason.
