Sexual VS romantic orientation

For starters let’s talk about the differences between sexual orientation and romantic orientation.

As the name suggests sexual orientation is a sexual attraction for a specific sex. And romantic orientation is a romantic attraction for a specific gender.

So, for exemple if I identify as a lesbian it means I’m sexually attracted to people of the same sex as me but, I can also identify simultaneously as heteromantic which means I’m only attracted romantically to people of the opposite gender.

Usually romantic orientation is used by people that identify as asexual which mean they can’t feel sexual attraction, feeling only romantic attraction instead (in some cases).

People can also be aromantic feeling only sexual attraction.

This is the main difference between sexual orientation and romantic orientation that will be useful to know in the next post about sexuality.
