What’s the reason for that?

Well yes and that’s fair enough but what’s the reason you’re not interested?
The reason is I'm not interested. There doesn't need to be any more reason than that. If I'm not interested in someone, I'm not interested.
But if someone generally isn’t interested in someone or something, there is a reason. For example, you might not like tomatoes because of the texture or you might not like a particular shirt because of it’s design. You might not like a particular person because you find them annoying.
But if they're my friend I wouldn't find them annoying. The point is, I don't have to have a reason to not be romantically interested in someone. No one has to have a reason to not be romantically interested in someone. If I'm not interested, I'm not interested. I don't owe anyone any more reason than that, even if there was more reason.
Well yes you don’t have to give a reason to anyone if you don’t want to (that’s your choice) but that doesn’t take away from the fact there is a reason.
Honestly though most of the time there isn't. I just don't feel romantically interested in them. I don't feel a pull to date them.
Physical looks as well as personality plays a part though.
Not always. One of my best friends is a guy that is very similar to my primary partner. He's handsome and kind and funny and ambitious. But if he asked me out I'd say no because I just don't have any romantic feelings for him.
So what attracted you to your current partner?
All the things I listed above, but I actually felt like I wanted to date him. I had romantic interest in him.
And what differentiates him from your friend who was similar?
