I am discovering that I may be asexual or bi, but I don't really know anything about it or how to figure out what I am

It's kind of exciting to learn new things about yourself! Congrats that you're on a journey of self-discovery! If it helps, asexuality can exist on a spectrum. Typical asexuality means not feeling sexual attraction towards people, and not feeling particularly interested in engaging in sexual exercises with others. Some asexual people who are partnered will have sex for the sake of their partner, although it isn't something they really are interested in and aren't likely to initiate since they don't have that drive. That said, there are kinky asexual people! They enjoy being aesthetically appreciated in certain situations, but don't want it to get physical necessarily. Attraction and sexuality are not mutually exclusive, so it's possible to be both bi and asexual. You can be attracted to whichever gender(s) on loads of levels while not feeling inclined towards sexual pursuit or engagement. I think that if you feel like you may be asexual, then you may feel more aligned to a "biromantic" label than "bisexual" one. Romantic leanings are separate from sexual leanings, which are yet separate from attraction. It's a bit of an interesting web of connections we follow to define the path that resonates with us. I hope you are empowered by your self-reflection and learning process! May you find peace in knowing yourself! 💖
