  1. Sexual attraction and “romantic” are planes that overlap in many ways, but do not coincide 100%. What you describe is actually quite common. I don't have a reference to relevant research at hand right now, but to put it briefly in my own words: the perception (and, consequently, the study) of human sexuality is increasingly moving away from linear concepts and more and more accepting the idea of multi-factorism, sexuality as a construct of many sub-parts, rather than a monolithic piece cast in cement. If earlier it was assumed, conditionally, that “heterosexuals love people of the opposite sex in all senses”, and “homosexuals love people of their own sex in all senses” (and in general, at least they recognized the presence of love and romance, and not just “bad parenting”), now such a linear approach is increasingly crumbling under the onslaught of empirical data. Even heterosexuals love people of the opposite sex differently. Sexuality is not static – it changes with the passage of time, under the influence of circumstances, in the course of life experience. And it certainly does not fit into the square cells “from and to”.�

    After all, what you describe is also found in heterosexual relationships under a slightly different sauce. A person can attract sexually, but not romantically. It can attract you romantically, but not sexually. It may not attract you at all, but June, the stars, the smell of jasmine…

    Put aside, in general, the school ruler, you need at least a logarithmic one.

  2. I sincerely believe that shortcuts in this matter only harm. If you're interested in this as an experience, then why not. In my opinion, the opportunity to admit this to yourself and others indicates your openness in this matter, nothing more.
