Being Demisexual

Demisexuality is a term that seems to be misunderstood, or may be its just a term that I ended up using to fit my preferences. Sapiosexuality has even become quite prevalent, but Demisexuality is still a vague term. Honestly, to me, at least, its getting turned on by someone who is emotionally connected to me. And no, it doesn't mean you have to be just "nice" to me, and I'll get turned on, but its getting attracted to the emotional "vibe" of the person.

To me hookups have been a nightmare. I have "made out" with guys whom I have been physically attracted to, I have made out with someone who was intellectually engaging. All this, as an experiment. But I don't feel the satisfaction nor would I be without "inhibition". No, its not because I am Asexual. But, may be I am looking for something "more" than just a someone who knows facts, or who is strong.

Honestly, Strong men and intelligent men lack something beyond all that. The emotional factor. The warmth. The sex that you have could be impersonal and aloof, at least for me. Hookups are an allergy, in a way, because, after you sharing intimate physical moments, you just bid adieu and never see the man again? That seems quite impersonal, however good the person is at bed. however caring and handsome.

In fact, I believe that I attract a lot of Sapios, My first boyfriend used to say "I love you for your mind", till date that's the biggest compliment I have had. I wait for someone, to whom I can say "I love you for your heart". When you "do it" with someone whom you are emotionally connected to, where there is a deep feeling of "you are mine and I am yours", your inhibitions run away. Every kiss, every touch, and caress gives you a feeling of being explored by someone who is going to love you, beyond the bed, beyond a fixed time frame of act, or beyond other people who would cross our lives.

I don't know if I have felt that with anyone as of now. Where I am comfortable enough to be "someone's". The craving is for a type of intimacy, where it feels "right". Where the sex is not an agenda, where its not a "must", but it simply "happens", because it just felt "natural". Where dating, knowing the person, and being with the person is the main agenda, and the sex just happens to be as effortless as eating or watching TV. Where the feeling is wholesome. No idea who initiated, no idea who finished, no idea when it started or when it stopped. Where you know the person inside out, and you explore them even more, with your senses. Where the intimacy stays even after the hormones wear out, when you rest in his arms, you know its not the last time.

End of a time

It's been so long since I wrote. But then when I see people read my blog, and say how much they relate. It compels me to write more. I thought that I don't have much to write anymore. Same old issues, same old stories. I even didn't want to write thinking that the issues I mentioned would probably dilute the matter with too many posts. But then I write today because something recently struck me hard. A conversation with a love interest who is looking for a partner, realized that I talked a lot about my previous love .Which I didn't know was so obvious. But I clearly didn't move on. After may be discussing for a whole hour, he asked if I am looking for a lover or a partner? Because you don't have much time until you spend time loving someone who may never be your partner. That's when I realized that I for all these years, haven't had a proper romance, and I am already out of that age. I am old enough to settle down and look for a partner, instead of

Walk of Shame

usually walk of shame happens when you have had sex with a total stranger, and you just regret to have done that while getting back home in the morning. But, to me it was different. Some few months back, I met this guy, he was really smart. well behaved and very talented. Mind you, I didn't meet him on any apps, but for work. Everytime he comes to work, he gives special attention to me, while other men "see", he "watches" me. While other man just touch, he "feels" me. He used to openly make it clear that he is there to see me and me only. I used to feel so special. But I never had the guts to reciprocate. Partly because the reputation he has for being a player. he is extremely smart, very soft spoken and has that charm. Girls fall for him so easy. I used act like I don't like him, but all my peers started noticing the attention I get from him. He talks only to me, the way he looks at me, how closely he stands, how he gets pissed if I have a figh

What I would tell my young gay self

Sometimes when you are gay, you are isolated, there are no mentors to guide you what is right and what is wrong. You have to tread carefully and move forward. With all the experience that I have gained so far, I would have to see what is gonna work and what doesn't. A few things that I would want to tell my younger self if I were to meet him. 1) They are as scared as you are - I remember the days when I used to ask a hundred questions before I share my photos. I was worried that I would be blackmailed, that I would be raped, and that the guys would kidnap and sell me off. Yes, all this does happen. There are many who are really evil, but as time went, I realized that most of the guys are just helpless and are scared themselves. There are many married men who live a double life, there are famous men, who don't want to come out, there are young boys who are going through the same as you. In fact, some of them are more closed than you are! 2) You would be rejected - Rej
