I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

Sexual and romantic orientation don't always coincide, and it sounds like it could be your case. If you can see yourself in a romantic relationship with men and women, but only women attract you in a sexual way, it's likely that you are a biromantic homosexual (if you're a woman) or a biromantic heterosexual (if you're a man).

Your label is what you feel works best for you. Many people would define romantic attraction to men and women as being "bi romantic" and being physically attracted to women as "homosexual" but those are just words. Those terms get power and meaning when you decide to give them that. It is up to you and only you to decide what terms you would like to use. You can call yourself whatever you want, or nothing at all. If you find labels more comforting you can do more research into the attraction spectrum and how that applied to you. You are on a brave journey, good luck!
