After a couple of years debating this internally, I can say now that I am demiromantic, romantic orientation wise (my sexual and romantic orientations differ from one another). I am so happy because for a long time, I felt like I was “broken” for not falling for someone romantically in a short period of time. I thought that I just needed to not be so “picky.” While I validated other demiromantic folks, I didn’t validate myself. I always told myself that I would “snap out of it.”
My romantic orientation is demiromantic. And I feel liberated to admit this.
Love is too young to know what conscience is,
Yet who knows not conscience is born of love ?
Then, gentle cheater, urge not my amiss,
Lest guilty of my faults thy sweet self prove.
For, thou betraying me, I do betray
My nobler part to my gross body’s treason ;
My soul doth tell my body that he may
Triumph in love ; flesh stays no farther reason,
But, rising at thy name, doth point out thee,
As his triumphant prize. Proud of this pride,
He is contented thy poor drudge to be,
To stand in thy affairs, fall by thy side.
No want of conscience hold it that I call
Her “love” for whose dear love I rise and fall.
