Seriously Geeky Sundays: Romance is in the air

Ugh. International Kissing Day… bah humbug! You crazy kids get offa my lawn with your kissing each other and whatnot.

Kidding! Back before I figured out my sexual orientation, I hated seeing anything to do with romance, to be honest. I’ve never truly desired kissing or sex, and I felt so alone for feeling that way. Thankfully, I got all my love shizz figured out these days!

Did you know? Sexual and romantic attraction are two different things in our brains! They usually align together for most humans, but not always. I’m have no desire for kissing or sex with any gender (asexual), but I do experience the other romantic feelings for rare people of any gender I bond with on a deep emotional level (demiromantic).

I have realized I do want a life partner, but haven’t had very much luck in that love area. The two people I’ve developed my true demiromantic feelings for didn’t return that love, and both chose other people to have a romantic relationship with over me (ow, my poor fragile self-worth). The people who have been attracted to me… well, sadly I felt nothing for them.

Romance is not something to be jealous of, silly brain. I’ve never had a romantic partner and there’s absolutely no rush or need to have one. I’d much rather be alone forever than trapped with someone I don’t truly love and can’t be myself around. Stop being so pushy on single people, society.

Enough about my lack of love life! The awesome Heather over at Just Geeking By started a series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This week is all about that romance thing. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s lovey questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!

There’s More to Life Than Having Sex

Triggered!! Ahem. This article has been inspired by the always awesome Kim of Later Levels and her superb post from 2019 criticizing a study that blamed video games for the reason why people aren’t having as much of that glorious sex thing. Nowadays you can blame the pandemic for that (ha!) but the root cause of my triggering remains the same in today’s coronavirus infested world.

Finding out about this “study” (I use the word loosely since it implies something professional happened. It did not.) triggered me for several reasons. Kim did a great job critiquing the reasons why the data from the study is flawed (seriously, check out her post). I’m going to concentrate on ranting about the thing that irked me the most about this whole thing: the fact that this study was even done at all.
