Introduce yourself here, where do you put yourself on the romanticism spectrum? What do you like to do? How did you find out you were different than others in regards to romanticism? Also, forum rules pinned to the top of this forum.
Need help with Aro research, spreading awareness, or found a cool article to share on the subject of aromanticism or greyromanticism? Or are you looking to organize a meetup with like minded people? Here's your place!
Would you like to see your orientation represented in the media? Have you found an aro themed video, fan fiction, have new a head-cannon or would you like some aro friendly book, movie, web comic, or music recommendations? Want to talk about flags and other ways to show your pride? Would you like to get creative?
Dang. I’ve noticed for a long time now that when these two online friends I have, who happen to be dating, are affectionate I get kinda uncomfortable? Like...’are you for reals, or ya’ll just playing around?’ It’s so weird lol. I don’t want to admit it’s romance repulsion, but I guess it is. I’m happy for them, though. Really glad they’re making it work and stuff. :3 But when they’re affectionate I just...😐 and I realize that I can’t ever get close to them because they’re so into each other. Oh well.
...And it’s even weirder cuz they didn’t even know each other for longer that half a year and yet they’re already dating?! Like wtf. How’d that even happen? I don’t get that at all. That sort of attraction. And it was mutual attraction, too! Like whoa. It’s...weird. I don’t get it at all.
Ah. When I realize I won’t ever feel those sorts of feelings, it bums me out a bit. Especially because a lot of people prioritize that sort of thing. BUT I totally understand that I’m not the only one and romance ain’t everything blah blah I know that now.
🤔 I still daydream characters being all close and intimate and stuff, though. 🤔 Wonder if it’s something I want.
But I also loooove horror and slasher films lmao. So, eh. I’ve heard of ‘being in love with the idea of love’, I wonder if that’s me.
This one online friend keeps talking to me, though! And I don’t seem to bother her when I spam her with walls of texts of my Skyrim adventures or my disorganized thought process. 😄 She’s dating a person I’m friends with, too, lol. But they’re not as openly affectionate so I’m spared of that uncomfortableness. They’re definitely more reserved than the other two lol.
Ahh, but it’s not like they’re always affectionate. Not really. And it’s easy to not look at posts like that, so whatever.
