Annuosexual (/-romantic/-platonic/-aesthetic/-queerplatonic/-sensual/-alterous) is an esmosexuality defined as "attraction that can only really be felt when it is known it is accepted by the other person (for you) to feel attraction to them. Alternatively, attraction can be felt only when you know, or otherwise have good reasons to believe, that the other person would not feel disagreeable about it (your attraction to them) in any case. From Latin adnuō, "I nod assent, approve, consent, allow.""1

I’m so scared of rejection
that I’ve convinced myself of this:
my attraction must be accepted
in order for it to exist.
