I've been thinking about this today. Someone posted about being ace and said they "find people attractive aesthetically" but not sexually.
And that really resonated with me. Like show me someone naked and I'm like "eh, it's a body??" But show me a fully clothed picture of someone with a book in their hands or someone who is flagging as queer through hair dye or rainbow gear or whatever, and I'm like 🤩
That feeling isn't sexual attracting per se, but a feeling of "ohh, yeah, maybe I can connect with this person emotionally or romantically".
I've been sure I'm demi-sexual for a while, but I'm leaning more towards describing myself as gray ace or ace now.
