Sexual attraction but not physical attraction? Watch

    So I'm really sexually attracted to someone but not physically attracted to them? Is this the norm? I feel like physical attraction is usually first?

    The guy I feel this for, I know him fairly well, so I guess there's an emotional element. But we don't have much in common and I find him really annoying.

    Idk it just really took me by surprise as I've only ever felt sexually attracted to someone who I physically fancied or had a strong emotional connection (but then physical attraction came second)

    We had sex once, it wasn't great but it wasn't bad... and I can't help but sometimes daydream about doing it again

    (I hope this doesn't sound stupid, I'm just wondering what other's thoughts are)

    You're contradicting yourself, you say you are sexually attracted to him but not physically, and you also imply that you are not attracted to his personality, as well as saying that the sex was just ok.

    What you are saying is irrational, it makes no sense. Maybe you are just physically attracted to him but you think you are not.

    But sexual attraction and physical attraction are two different things?

    Sexual attraction is based on something, if not on physical aspects or personality then what is it based on?

    What's the problem, no-one said you had to like his personality.

    Just pump and dump.

    And if he is a dude then he won't mind, less baggage of having to deal with a relationship.

    Sexual attraction is a physical desire to subconscious mate with the person

    I thought there was only sexual/physical attraction. Romantic attraction and aesthetic attraction

    Hm yeah, I'm wrong, I think I was thinking of the distinction between romantic and sexual attraction.

    I guess I am just in denial :/
