I know this blris about ace but I want to ask what romantic attraction/ love really is?

This one is a bit tough, because it manifests differently in different people. What’s generally agreed upon as a good all-encompassing definition is that you desire to be a romantic relationship with a specific person. But again, romantic feelings don’t come up in the same ways for everyone, so it can be hard to spot if you’re not that sure. The most common physical indicators I’ve heard people say they experience for it are the whole “butterflies in the stomach, heart beating really fast when you think about them” sort of thing, if that helps any. But anything beyond that, it really, really varies. I hope I was able to help some, but if anyone who might be more well-versed in the romance wants to chime in, that might be better!
