We all know it's possible for some people to be immediately sexually attracted to other people based on information gathered with one's physical senses—without knowing anything about their personalities.

It can be based on looks or voice or chemistry or charisma, and it's known as a primary sexual attraction reaction.

That person seems like a good sex partner, and there's a physical and/or mental sexual reaction. It doesn't mean one is necessarily realistically interested in sex with that person or is ready to run into the nearest closet for a quickie. It just means there is a reaction that is sexual—that a person can be seen in a sexual context even as a stranger.

Secondary sexual attraction is more gradual, though not inherently a "different kind" of sexual attraction—it just happens under different circumstances. A partner starts to seem sexually appealing only after an emotional bond develops (not necessarily love), based on qualities that can't be perceived through immediate observation of the subject without interaction. This can happen in conjunction with primary sexual attraction, combining with it, enhancing it. But some people only experience that slow, less reactionary rise of interest—they never experience primary or immediate sexual attraction and can't feel attraction to strangers or celebrities they don't know.

Some people who only experience sexual attraction after developing a bond with someone find it useful to call themselves demisexual.

My love keeps growing more passionate and egoistic, while his is waning and waning, and that's why we're drifting apart."

She went on musing.

"And there's no help for it. He is everything for me, and I want him more and more to give himself up to me entirely. And he wants more and more to get away from me. We walked to meet each other up to the time of our love, and then we have been irresistibly drifting in different directions. And there's no altering that."

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
