There's a good infographic for this...I'll see if I can find it.
true and i was explaining the concept of being a heterosexual biromantic to someone a while ago.

At this point I'd classify myself as a demisexual biromantic. It's all very interesting.

In a way, I get where you're coming from though I don't carry hatred or dislike for men..I just don't my faith in them and believe their privilege affords them a lot of luxury and insensitivity.

Online and offline, some people want to help and others don't. Sift through the dirt to get to the gold nuggets.

I would consider going to a counselor and talking to someone about how you feel. They won't be judgmental like family and friends (and us on BHM). They can help you build up your skills to better cope with how you feel.Hug

Something happened a few months ago to spark this, but BHM...how do I go about explaining to people that the thought of being in an emotional relationship with a man is something I just don't want without sounding like a basket case? I can totally envision myself being a bridesmaid at some of my friends' weddings at 30+ years of age and the conversations that will come asking why I'm not in a relationship. 

How do I explain this to people LOL I just don't like them. I think they're attractive, but I just don't..like..men. I think they're weapons of mass emotional destruction tbh. My mother's going to kill me Stern Smile




I never get overly emotional. Actually, this is how I feel about most women ticking time bombs of illogical emotional energy to go off. That's foreign to me and I don't go off and do illogical things even when people do me dirty. I control my emotions cause they are tools to be used on how a situation is perceived to you not an excuse to do anything regrettable or harmful.
