Demi- An a-spectrum orientation where one does not experience attraction to a person until they have developed an emotional connection to them. There is no guarantee that this attraction will develop after an emotional connection is formed, but it is required in order for attraction to be possible.

Some demi people may choose to further define their orientation in terms of genders they are attracted to (demipanromantic, demihomosexual). Others do not find this necessary, or feel that they have enough experiences of that form of attraction to figure out who they're attracted to.

Yeah, sorry I vanished for a long time. I'm working on cleaning up any bad comments right now. I'll be disabling comments for everything soon since it's hard to keep track of right now

I'm a demisexual and I can confidently say you are wrong. Most people can look at an attractive person and want to kiss them or be with them but for me- I can tell they are attractive but being with them just has no appeal. Usually I have to know someone very well to even have the chance of being attracted to them. If you know the youtuber Swoozie he is a great example of someone who is automatically attracted just by looks even if he knows nothing about someone.

As someone who identifies as demisexual, I discovered that sexual attraction to strangers *existed at all* because my friends would play "would/would not bang" when people-watching. I genuinely thought it was a joke, just a funny way of saying a person is aesthetically attractive or unattractive (I understand aesthetic attraction, but it is calculated: good hair, crisp style, interesting shoes, athletic build, etc.). When they explained they actually have a physical, somatic response to attractive people, I didn't believe them at first.

Demisexuality is the absence of a somatic response to otherwise attractive people unless you are emotionally involved --- I am capable of feeling sexually attracted to my partner, but I have only felt physically sexually attracted to two people in my life and only once we were well into serious relationship status. I don't believe "most people" are that way at all.

I'm sorry to butt in, but I don't think they're trying to be "Special". There are people Who DO Only Experience Attraction until an Emotional Connection, So It's pretty not Bullshit. Sorry you don't believe it but I just wanted to point this out :'3
