If you haven’t heard the term before, a demisexual is someone who does not experience sexual attraction to another until they have formed an either an emotional or intellectual connection with that person most often seen in romantic relationships. The term demisexual comes from being part way between sexual and asexual. However, demisexuals do not have an incomplete or partial version of their sexuality.
