❝ I was wondering if you could help me understand romantic attraction a bit more? I know I'm ace but I'm not sure what my romantic orientation is, and the definitions aren't really helping. ❞
It’s difficult because it depends on what you consider romantic. I tend to associate it will feelings of wanting to be in a relationship, marry, and all that mushy crap lol. If I find myself envision doing that with someone, I know I’m romantically attracted to them.
So first, do you experience sexual attraction? If you don’t then you might identify with being aromantic. If you do experience romantic attraction, who do you tend to feel it towards (genderwise). Then you’d find the appropriate prefix.
❝ What do you think of asexuality and its relationship with the introversion-extroversion spectrum? ❞
Not sure what your asking. Whether it is more common for asexuals to be introverts? I have found a large population of asexuals tend to be introverted, though it’s hard to tell since we mainly talk about asexuality on the internet, and introverts are a large population online… as extroverts tend to find their entertainment offline. Who knows what the actual numbers are.
Autochorissexualism; A disconnection between oneself and a sexual target/object of arousal; may involve sexual fantasies, or arousal in response to erotica or pornography, but lacking any desire to be a participant in the sexual activities therein. Commonly found in asexual people; an analogous feeling may occur in aromantic people for romantic fantasies. Coined by Anthony Bogaert.
