    Is there a term for me liking males sexually and romantically and females only sexually, or is that just bisexual?

    Hi Sabrina and welcome to the family! Old cis bi guy speaking. :) 

    Sexuality labels are purely to do with basic lust. The romantic stuff is dealt with separately. Consequently, the term for what you're describing is "Bisexual hetero-romantic".

    Hope that helps. :)

    It depends on you, of course, on how you want to define yourself. If I were in your shoes, I'd say I'm bisexual. Only insofar that bisexuality doesn't need to be the same on both sides (so far I picked up). I mean, you can like women sexually and men romantically but because you like both, I'd assume that qualifies (my opinion) you as bisexual.

    One doesn't need to be "sexual" to have connection and attraction (say psychological and emotional) to the same and/or opposite gender. Personally, I'd keep it simple for now until you figure out yourself more. You're the only one who knows you. There are so many labels out there for sexuality that I'd just get to know yourself first and then branch from there.
