    Has anyone here heard of demi-sexual? I just found out that is what I am and I am happy to have discovered this. Hey at the same time I feel like no one knows what it is so I feel kind of stupid telling people.

    I had the same question and, as I have been told to do so many times, turned to Google. This site's name looked like the most promising for a serious description. http://www.dictionary.com/meaning/demisexual

    I googled it too. Very interesting. I could almost say that is the same for me. Once I form that emotional strong connection, then it's a go, and at that!

    um, okay.

    before 1980's people often don't reveal their sexual identity. I prefer that way to keep sexual preference low, but now people are starting to tell their sexual preference to divide the social setting (i.e. "I'm going to bar with (glbt) gay/lesbians/bi/t/ but heteros are not invited to our private bar")......WHY sexist WHY?

    I just hate that people label me. I go out with my wife and people call us lesbians, but I'm not lesbian. I am not sexually attracted to females. I just like my wife. I just always identified as straight and now I feel like I found clarity and confusion.
    I do dislike people that say they are cis gendered heterosexual... ok thanks?
