Hiya there, I hope you are all having a nice day! I am here today to talk about the issue that a lot of new and even older LGBTQ+ members face, and that is figuring out what label you fall under. Labels can sometimes make you feel like you have to be a certain way. I find that labels can sometimes cause more harm than they are worth and a lot of my friends now jump between labels very often. Personally I do not use any labels for my sexual identity, but I do use demiromantic as my label. I find that labels are really bottlenecked, and people tend to get confused when you say certain things and then have to specify.
Other people love labels, which I understand why. Labels can give you a sense of security and if you are very stable and able to determine your identity then they are quite easy to use. The problem is, sexuality and gender and romanticism IS A SPECTRUM. You could be bisexual and have a strong preference to men, or you could be a pansexual and not really want to date many enbys but you have exceptions.
The point of this post is to say that you are valid even if you use labels or not, so you shouldn't worry about having a label and you shouldn't be worrying about whether you fit into the label because love is love and you are valid no matter what.
THIS!!! The other day someone asked me my sexuality and I said I don't really have a label. They kept on trying to guess, like i was hiding it from them?? but litterally, i dont have a label. but anyone else who doesn't have a label(and anyone who does), I see you, I send you love and I hope you have a very validated day :)
