What is love?

-An intense feeling of deep affection

-Love comes in many forms, not just romantic or sexual. It also can be shared between different combinations of genders, races, ages, or any other factor.
Here's the thing about love, it's not simple.

A lot of factors effect who and how a person loves.
Here are some of those factors:
Romantic Orientation
Whether someone is
Monogamous or not
A lot of people don't know a whole bunch about sexualities and romantic orientations other than their own or anything outside of monogamy. Understanding these things that serve as a foundation for love is vital to understand and accept other people and who or how they love.
So Let's Learn!

-Capacity of Sexual feeling

-Who a person is sexually attracted to.

Sexuality is two spectrum's: Who you are sexually attracted to and how sexual are you.
Here are some of the many sexualities
Heterosexual- Sexual attraction towards the opposite sex
Homosexual- Sexual attraction towards the same sex
Bisexual- Sexual attraction towards the same and different genders
Pansexual- Sexual attraction towards all genders
Omnisexual- Sexual attraction towards all genders
Polysexual- Sexual attraction to many genders
Skeliosexual- Sexual attraction towards non-binary people
Homoflexible- Sexual attraction strongly towards the same sex with some attraction to the opposite
Heteroflexible- Sexual attraction strongly towards the opposite sex with some attraction to the same
Fluid- Sexual attraction that flucuates

The Who of Sexual Attraction
Something equally Important: How sexual one is...
The lack of sexual attraction

-do not normally experience sexual attraction, but do experience it sometimes
-experience sexual attraction, but a low sex drive
- experience sexual attraction and drive, but not strongly enough to want to act on them
-people who can enjoy and desire sex, but only under very limited and specific circumstances

Demisexual- does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone.

Lithsexual- Expirences sexual desire but does not want it reciprocated

Note: All of the above are legitimate sexualities and are not hormone unbalances, choices like celibacy or anything besides a sexuality. Someone who identifies as any of these sexualities may or may not experience romantic attraction.
Bisexuality Vs. Pansexuality
-Both inclusive

-Both legitamate
-Being attracted to the same gender and different genders.

-Older community

-Bisexuals have a bad rap because of some of the pansexual community trying to legitimize their sexuality by calling bisexuals discriminatory
-Being attracted to all genders

-Much younger, newer community

-A lot of pansexuals define bisexuality wrongly to legitimize their sexuality
Note: Bisexuality and pansexuality are actually very similar. Sure they have separate definitions, but the same kind of people identify as these two sexualities.
Kinsey Scale Test
Questioning your sexuality? Great! That means you're self aware. Feelings, regardless of what gender they are directed towards, are completely natural and extremely rad. Sometimes, a quiz like the Kinsey Scale test can really help clear the fog around your sexuality. The Kinsey scale ranges from 0, for those who would identify as exclusively heterosexual, to 6, for those who would identify themselves as exclusively homosexual, and 1-5 for those who would identify themselves with varying levels of desire for sexual activity with either sex, including "incidental" or "occasional" desire for sexual activity with the same sex. Another result of the Kinsey scale is "X" which mean the person has no sexual desire, so they are asexual. Although developed in 1948, the Kinsey Scale is still a relevant and helpful resource for questioning youth. Here's a site!

Now onto romantic orientation!
Romantic Orientation
Romantic orientation refers to an individual's pattern of romantic attraction based on a person's gender. This is considered distinct from sexual orientation, which refers specifically to a person patterns of sexual attraction, which is distinct from romantic attraction.

How Romantic?

I like to think about love like this:
There is so much more than romantic love!
Myths debunked
Tumblr invented aromanticism
No. Just no. Poeple have seeked nothing further than plantonic love since the dawn of time and that's totally alright. Sure, the support and visibility Tumblr has provided has helped questioning individuals realize their lack of romantic attraction is actually a thing, but people who don't even use Tumblr are aromantic
All aromantics are asexual!
Wrong! Just like the fact that not all asexuals are aromantic, some aromantics can have healthy, sexual relationships without romantic obligation attacted. And they aren't pigs! It's not their fault that romance doesn't tickle their fancy, and some sexy time does!
Aromantics are heartless
Being aromantic doesn't mean you don't ever feel love! There are a whole bunch of other kinds of love like love for a friend, or family member, or your qeer-platonic-life-partner! Isn't that rad?
Aromanticism is a choice
Just like asexuality, aromanticism isn't a choice. Asexuality isn't celibacy, or waiting for the right person. The same goes for Aromanticism.
Aromaniticism is a medical condition
Just because someone doesn't want to live out a Nicolas Sparks novel, doesn't mean their is something medically wrong about them. It's not a hormone inbalnace, just like asexuality!
Romanticism was an artistic, literary, and intellectual movement that originated in Europe toward the end of the 18th century and in most areas was at its peak in the approximate period from 1800 to 1850. Partly a reaction to the Industrial Revolution, it was also a revolt against the aristocratic social and political norms of the Age of Enlightenment and a reaction against the scientific rationalization of nature. It was embodied most strongly in the visual arts, music, and literature, but had a major impact on historiography, education and the natural sciences. Its effect on politics was considerable and complex; while for much of the peak Romantic period it was associated with liberalism and radicalism, its long-term effect on the growth of nationalism was probably more significant. Just want to make sure you know that era was not about kisses and Romeo and Juliet. Sorry I couldn't resist!
You know what is super rad? Everyone has both a romantic orientation and a sexual orientation. They don't always match up (like bisexual/biromantic compared to homosexual/lithromantic) and romantic orientations aren't just for asexuals. They're for everyone!

When I say relationship
structure I'm referring to whether a relationship is monogamous, polyamorous, polygamist, polyandrous or whatever! All of which are super duper cool!
