Aesthetic attraction is when you're attracted to someone's looks but not necessarily in a sexual way, and sensual attraction has to do with the senses (wanting to touch, smell, see, etc a person)... This is called asexuality, but some asexual people are still interested in developing romantic relationships with other.Asexuality is completely normal and healthy variant of human sexuality.The best option is to discuss the limits and interests of both involved parties to be sure that everyone is on the same page for their wants and desires in a relationship as emotionally intimate as anything involving the word or concept of "love." Just because it doesn't involve sex or sexual desire does not mean it isn't love, desire, or intimate. There's also a romantic version of it, a platonic version (like a friend crush), an aesthetic version (where you really admire someone's appearance), and more.
Looking for answers on the internet...we've all been there.
I just want you to know you don't have to figure this out on your own.
Some other attractions you can experience are: romantic attraction (wanting to do romantic things with them), aestethic attraction (appreciating the way they look as you would admire a sunset), sensual attraction (more related to your senses, like cuddling and touching)...
A great and simply way an awesome listener called Erynn showed me to visualized this attractions is through a drawing made by a tumblr user (here: ).
Yes, and these feelings may change as you develop relationships with individuals within that gender.
You love a person, not their gender segregation, and this love will more than likely develop into a sexual love.

Nobody is here to judge.yeah, thats what happen when we make friends.
Asexuality, for example, does not mean an absence of romantic interest in others, just the absence of a sexual one. some people don't experience sexual attraction and a label for that is Asexual.
Of course you can also like one gender sexually and the other romantically, or both romantically and only one sexually, and so on. Now, Sexual attraction and Romantic attraction are two separate things (not many people realise this) There are endless combinations of this people can be asexual and homo-romantic, Bisexual and Aromantic (aromantic is not feeling romantic attraction), graysexual and heteromantic..list goes on.
You can also experience romantic attraction to a different group of people than you experience sexual attraction. You could be asexual if you find yourself not having any sexual feeling for anyone, but let's say you are attracted to both females and males, and not sexually but just romantically, you are most likely biromantic Yes its entirely possible!
