    So i was in the orientation thread and noticed people had a different views on being pan-sexual than myself. I've been going under being pan-sexual because i find it difficult to be attracted to someone purely on their looks when i don't know them. Basically, I need to know someone before i start feeling an attraction towards them. This is classed as pan-sexual right?

    pansexuality refers to the potential for sexual attractions, sexual desire, or romantic love, towards people of all gender identities and biological sexes. Some self-identified pansexuals refer to themselves as gender-blind—that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others. The Oxford English Dictionary writes that pansexuality "encompasses all kinds of sexuality; not limited or inhibited in sexual choice with regards to gender or activity." Pansexuality can also mean the attraction to a person's personality, rather than their physical appearance or gender.

    As I said in the other thread..

    .. a lot of people find someone attractive based on personality rather than looks, it doesn't make them pan-sexual unless they're also blind to gender identities and biological sexes (meaning they don't care if someone is gay, bi, straight, transvestite, transgender, cisgender, etc).

    I did read what you said in the other thread. Notice i open this thread up before you posted that?
    Thanks both of you's. Well i'm definitely pan-sexual with a hint of not caring about physical appearance.
