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?
Do people actually want to date fictional characters? Are they just joking when they say that or do they mean they want to date someone similar to the character? My sister was saying how she wanted to date this anime guy from a show we both like.
She then proceeded to ask me who my ideal guy was or something along those lines to which I replied with "uhhhhhhhhh" while having alarm sirens go off in my head since I dont have a dream guy and don't even want one.
She then told me her dream guy was taller than her even with heels one, which I know is an important factor for a lot of people it's just I don't really understand having a type based on appearances cause imagine you found the perfect guy, he's everything you could ever dream of but *gasp* he's the same height as you! I just don't get it.
Yknow sometimes I see aros (and aspecs in general) on other parts of the internet dismiss certain labels, concepts, etc. as being mainly “””tumblr things”””. But you know what? I think instead of ignoring and invalidating a sizable chunk of the aro community, maybe you ought to ask yourselves: What is it that Tumblr's doing that so many aros gravitate towards? Why do these aros not choose to join wherever it is that YOU congregate? What can you learn from Tumblr aros, and why do you automatically think our community development isn't as valuable as yours?
Food for thought.
