I lean very heavily hetero. I’ve never been attracted to women in either a romantic or sexual way (not for lack of opportunity), nor do I foresee it happening in the future.

marylen :  I’ve never heard the term “heteroromantic” or “heteroflexible”, can you please explain what this means to you? Is this similar to being bi-curious or something different? 

I personally identify as bisexual. I have always had crushes on women and have had some positive sexual experiences with women, however I’ve never been in a relationship with a woman. On the bisexual spectrum I guess, I definitely pursue men more than I pursue women.

I’m an heterosexual. Even the thought of sexual experience with a female makes me uncomfortable.

I identify as pretty heavily straight, but not so much that I view a same-sex relationship as impossible, if that makes sense. I’ve only dated men, and I’m happily engaged to a man that I hope to grow old and gross with, monogamously. But if I were to ever end up single again, or on a desert island somewhere, I can’t say for sure that I wouldn’t end up with a woman. I don’t know that I’d purposely seek it out, but if the right person came along and they happened to be a woman, then sure.

I would say I am exclusively sexually and romantically interested in women, however, in the past I have had some level of romantic interest in men (although this may be due to denial and pressure I was putting on myself to not be gay). Since I’ve accepted I’m gay and dated women (I’m engaged to a woman) I have had 0 sexual or romantic interest in men and could never see myself having any sexual contact or relationships with men again.

I am straight, but it is surprising that a lot of people don’t believe that because I am disabled or assume that I don’t even want sex or anything like that. Not everyone who is disabled is asexual and the people who are asexual and disabled are asexual not because of disability, heck, how asexual people feel about sex varies some are repulsed and some are indifferent and just because you are asexual doesn’t mean you can’t have sex or are not into romance or aren’t kinky, BDSM doesn’t always have to include sex after all.

I’m pansexual but I lean more towards preferring women rather than men. That said I’m currently with a man and very happy my decisions in life are always people based rather than gender based. I just have always preferred women aesthetically. I’ve always known I’ve liked women though and told my mum when I was a young kid that I had a crush on a girl in class. She was perfectly fine with that (thankfully)

marylen :  I am heterosexual. However, I have always viewed sexual orientation as a spectrum and I believe it is entirely possible for people on either end of the spectrum to find people attractive who aren’t their typical “type”. When I was single I never discounted the possibility that I may one day find myself attracted to a woman the way I am typically attracted to men.

marylen :  Gotcha. That is actually the definition of bi-curious if I’m not mistaken, but I’ve never heard the differentiating of sex and romance feelings within that. Very complex indeed. Thanks for clarifying!

I am heterosexual and only attracted to men. I have never, and will never be physically or romantically attracted to another female.
