Do you think of yourself as an impulsive person?
During winter break, my mother bakes a thousand cookies for gifting, and there are always hundreds left over. But even though the cookies are great, and even though I’m underweight, I tend not to eat very many at a time. This is the opposite of my boyfriend, who will keep on eating them unless he commits to stop. He is impulsive where I am very much not impulsive. But I’m not sure it’s better, because it means I frequently hesitate to do things that I like.
This is actually something I use to worry about in relation to asexuality. I think I used to be aesthetically attracted to men before I was really aware of it, and part of the reason I wasn’t aware of it was because I always refused impulses to look at people. Well, and now I don’t really worry about it.
