Half of me wants to laugh and half of me wants to shake her head… and the other half wants to sigh. Best part is that they clarify it in the end (I suppose in case people watching don’t understand why it is strange/funny)

Lying happens a lot.
I heard somewhere that people on average lie every 9 seconds, quite a lot. I think you will tell it if you feel the need to and if you don’t, you will have to be ok that you lied. I try to speak my mind but I can assure you that at times that ends up burning bridges more than mending them ~ so be weary and follow your gut instinct. Maybe it would be good to warn them? Don’t know. But I am sure you are not an untrustworthy one considering you are beating yourself up about it.
On the facebook page I am running (www.facebook.com/panparty) there are some great anonymous confessions that have been submitted. If you want to release something that is weighing heavy on your heart, shout it out to the world and who knows, someone may feel the same or have a solution :)
Anyhow, I am an advocate for letting out all your thoughts to free your mind from the clutter of the unkind.
I find myself searching for something. Something, anything that will make me feel as alive as I did before. The unfortunate thing is that I am not sure whether that something is within this existence, within these senses. I am limited by my own mind telling me what I cannot.
When I try to look back to the moment I have felt completely at peace and happy, it was when I let everything go. No rules, no plans, all I had were the feelings in my head and the beating of my heart. But without responsibility or proactivity, what is left of me? You strip my adulthood responsibilities away and I welcome you to witness my inner child. The one who is free, who sees opportunity in ruins.
Does this inner child still flourish? Free of fear, free of trials and free of worries - I long to be. Can I have the strength of a thousand diamonds, a temper still like the soft ocean and drown in a million smiles? Feel love not only by my family and friends but in the very Earth we walk on in each and every step.
How do we begin the journey to the way we once thought? Can we free ourselves from the bounds of time and find true inner happiness? We let go. We forgive ourselves for the things we cannot control, for the things we wished we did different and for the matters that once mattered and be absolved. The turbulence is realizing that the only one who can clear your conscience and grant you this greatness, is yourself.

There are many labels that can suit your feelings. That is the beauty of labels, they don’t define you - you define what your label means to you. You define what you identify with and no one can effectively tell you what you are, only you know. I can just tell you what I know and you can make a decision :) Here it goes:
Here are a few terms that may help this process, which shall be further explained after:
I may have possibly left some out, considering it is the morning of my exam I am not 100% here ;) In that case, I hope someone helps me out.
I identify personally as demisexual. When I see a person in the beginning, I don’t see them as a sexual being at all and if I were to imagine them naked I would see similar smoothed out privates as Barbie and Ken dolls. I need to get to know someone before I consider becoming physical with them. Then the desire grows over time.
These two options are within the romantic orientation spectrum
Romantic identities ~ From Wiki
People may engage in purely emotional romantic relationships.
Aromantic: lack of romantic attraction towards anyone – the affectional equivalent of asexuality
Biromantic (also ambiromantic): romantic attraction towards two or more genders (personal note: changed the binary assumption from Wiki) – the affectionate equivalent of bisexuality
Heteroromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of a different gender – the affectional equivalent of heterosexuality
Homoromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of the same gender – the affectional equivalent of homosexuality
Panromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of every gender – the affectional equivalent of pansexuality
Polyromantic: romantic attraction towards multiple, but not necessarily all, genders – the affectional equivalent of polysexuality.
Andromantic, gyneromantic, and ambi romantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) expressing masculinity or femininity or intersex/third gender-mixing (respectively) without implying the gender of the individual experiencing the attraction; often used by people with a non-binary gender identity – the affectional equivalent of androphilia, gynephilia, and ambiphilic.
Skole romantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of variant or non-binary gender – the affectional equivalent of skoliosexuality.
Demiromantic: a person who may identify as a “grey romantic” because they may only feel romantic attraction once a reasonably stable/large emotional connection has been created. – the affectional equivalent of demisexuality.
In here, I identify with multiple romantic identities (this just reiterates that you decide what identity you are feeling) I am again demiromantic, but once I am past the emotional connection it is panromantic with at times a hint of androromantic because I find some masculine traits attractive in whatever shape or form.
In the graph I have made above you can see a clear overlap. The multiple genders basically means up to all genders. There are many bisexuals and pansexuals that are attracted to all genders.
New term that I just found like a week ago from this website.
It is quite interesting because if you look at pomosexual (non orientation in which people disregard sexual labels altogether; the superficial orientation identifications a.k.a. gay, straight, etc. are insignificant and not what people should accord to) you will realize a lot of people who have identified as pansexuals identify with this sort of thinking - hearts not parts, love is love etc.
So now you have seen all sorts of labels/definitions people have used to explain their identity. It is up to you whether you choose one, some or none to identify with.
All I can tell you is:
