STASH OF ADVICE

These are tips for future Nicole fr past Nicole who made a lot of mistakes this school year ┗(•̀へ •́ ╮ ) so I hope at least some of you can relate to this stash of tips I have kept for myself in my notes for incoming Senior High levels!

1.  WRITE NOTES ON GIVEN ACTIVITY SHEETS
& keep your papers organized (please)

Write tiny notes on the given activity sheets instead of putting them in your binder notebook (ok my own preference tho!!) bc one paper = topic is better than multiple messy papers = one huge topic!

Hey! I really like your blog. I'm not really sure what's going on with my sexuality like I appreciate attractive people but never once have I been like "I would like to engage in sexual activity with you" and I don't know if that's just cause I'm internally awkward or because I'm ace or demisexual. Like, I don't think I'm experiencing sexual attraction the same way as my friends but it's hard to describe the absence of. Thoughts?

My thoughts are that this sounds like what a lot of aces say too.  Just in case you don’t know, you can be ace and still appreciate attractive people.  Asexuality is only about a lack of sexual attraction, which it sounds like you have described. Your appreciation for attractive people might be another attraction, such as aesthetic attraction.  I appreciate attractive people all the time, but it’s never been associated with sex.

Here are the different types of attraction people have come to define.  Remember that this is about what feels right for you, there is no checklist or perfect box to fit in.  

  • Sexual attraction: attraction that makes people desire sexual contact or shows sexual interest in another person(s).
  • Romantic attraction: attraction that makes people desire romantic contact or interaction with another person or persons.
  • Aesthetic attraction: occurs when someone appreciates the appearance or beauty of another person(s), disconnected from sexual or romantic attraction.
  • Sensual attraction: the desire to interact with others in a tactile, non-sexual way, such as through hugging or cuddling.
  • Emotional attraction: the desire to get to know someone, often as a result of their personality instead of their physicality. This type of attraction is present in most relationships from platonic friendships to romantic and sexual relationships.
  • Intellectual attraction: the desire to engage with another in an intellectual manner, such as engaging in conversation with them, “picking their brain,” and it has more to do with what or how a person thinks instead of the person themselves.
