A woman who has made strong claims that she is autosexual has revealed that she is now officially engaged to herself. Woman claims to be autosexual
Ghia Vitale, took to twitter to announce that she is engaged to be married to herself, with the hashtags, autosexual and autoromantic.
The writer who had proposed to herself in March 2017 recently took to Twitter to announce the news, writing: “It’s official: I am engaged to myself! #autoromanticism #autosexual”
Speaking to Metro UK, Ghia said she started becoming aware of her sexuality at the young age of 7, when she noticed that she could not carry on romantic friendships like other kids her age, and that she was turned on by the thought of her body.
Because of her limited knowledge, she didn’t explore the feelings until she got to college. Here she had to unlearn everything she learned about conventional sexuality in order to pursue her own.
She revealed how it all started to Metro UK, saying;
“My definition of autosexuality is being attracted to yourself. I’ve been attracted to myself for as long as I’ve been cognizant of attraction.
“My earliest memories of checking myself out in the mirror and feeling attraction happened at around age seven. I didn’t learn the term “autosexual” until after I graduated from college in 2013.
“My attraction to myself made me confused at times, but once I learned about autosexuality, I was glad there was a word for my experience.
“I’ve recognized myself as being in a relationship with myself since I was in college. I just didn’t have the vocabulary to express my experiences.”
She said that prior, she had thought she needed to be in a relationship with someone else for the relationship to be valid.
“Before that, I still had sexual and romantic feelings about myself, but always assumed a relationship had to be with another person in order to be valid. I now realize that my relationship with myself is as valid as any other relationship.”
