"That guy is so damn sexy, I could take him to bed and shag him all night long."

Romantic attraction: When one desires to have a romantic relationship with another specific person or persons. Many people who’re asexual may experience romantic attraction even though they do not experience sexual attraction.

"Oh wow, that girl is so beautiful, I would really like to get to know her better. She’s the type of girl I would love to get into a romantic relationship with."

Aesthetic attraction: When one sees another person or persons as attractive, nice looking, handsome or beautiful, but does not feel any desire to be in a romantic, sexual or sensual relationship with them.
