Anonymous asked: I was wondering what is it called when you experience an Artistic attraction towards people rather than sexual? I would rather draw or paint them, And then cuddle...
I think the term you’re looking for is aesthetic attraction, which is the attraction towards someone’s looks, in a way similar to how one may find a sunset or a painting beautiful.
I like the phrase “artistic attraction” though. There is a difference between finding people beautiful and wanting to draw or paint them.
I’m not very familiar with artists’ terminology for their feelings towards the subjects depicted in their artworks. Maybe you can say you’re inspired by the person?
I feel like the “wanting to cuddle” part might indicate it’s more than just an aesthetic attraction though. Or at least that it’s more than just the looks here (although I suppose you could make the case that we imagine the person we find aesthetically appealing and ascribe personality traits to them and it’s still just the looks that are causing it…)
Either way, definitely been there.
