Leaving Societal Norms Behind



Who are you attracted to? (What’s your orientation?)

Is it a romantic attraction? A sexual attraction? An emotional attraction? An intellectual attraction?

There are an endless variety of attraction forms and combinations. Everyone is a little bit different. Love and attraction are on a spectrum – they are fluid. People fall in different places, and they may slightly (or drastically) change over their lifetime.

So what about you? How are you feeling today? Heterosexual? Homosexual? Bisexual? Pansexual? Asexual? Something else? But wait…those are all based on your sexual attraction. Some people are sexually attracted to people of one gender, or another, or a third, or all, or even none. But what about those attractions that don’t fit into the sexual category? Yes, those ones count too.

Over the years people have discovered a wide diversity within the human race. Each individual feels slightly differently about each other, and they want and need different things too. Those romantic connections, and emotional connections, and even intellectual connections, or any other kind, are all valid forms of attraction (whether or not they also involved sex).
