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?
I'm not sure if I can continue claiming to be apathetic any more. I keep finding things making me angry and I am having to work at being easy going. Of course I'm not getting angry at the big stuff like rape culture and global warming, I'm getting angry at stupid questions people ask me and amatonormative comments in media from the 1990s.
I’m pretty sure all my close friends and family here at home think I’m either gay or ‘independent’. Lol. I don’t consider myself gay at all. Queer definitely. Most definitely. But not gay. Because gay means I’m interested in a relationship and/or sex with someone, and I’m not. However, if I come out as aroace and explain what this is, they’re gonna think I’m fine being alone. It’s not really a big deal, coming out to them. I’m more concerned about expressing my interests and finding hardly any non-romantic stuff in fandoms ;-;
I had a tumblr where I basically vented and reblogged a bunch of aro stuff I resonated with. But after that stupid update thing in December the site just...bleh. Wasn’t a perfect place to begin with, but I learned a lot there. How to human. About autism. I made new friends (I’m pretty sure we’re all friends now, not acquaintances. But I’ve squishes on two of them, and they’re dating so it’s...interesting.) All my tumblr blogs are gone. I deleted them. I’m done with that site. Twitter is too public. I was a little hysterical with trying to find other aros like me.
So, I’m very glad to be here. I hope it’s not as dead as I think it is.
