    Allow personals/dating requests?

    Even though its hard to differentiate between the two sometimes i think its a necessary distinction that needs to be made because a meetup and a qpr can have different connotations and expectations going into the situation unless theres at least a bit if a clear understanding of what someone wants out of a relationship. So there could be a thread for meetups which to me implies just to hang out as friends cuz you want to meet more aros and then another thread for dates which to me implies more of a qpr or whatever type of relationship situation

    Allow personals/dating requests?

    I agree with a lot of the points made advocating for a dating thread. Like NotHeartless said I'd also want to date an aro person in a QPR because I feel like there's less room for misinterpretation when it comes to talking about what each person wants in the relationship, and even though there aren't many of us on this website it's still a nice starting point because for me personally I haven't met any other aros in real life. I also agree with Jot-Aro in that i think there should be a section for dating for those who want to post on that thread, but as long as it's a specific thread then those who don't want anything to do with it don't have to look at it.
  3. Happy valentines day! I platonically love you all💚

  4. So I basically described feeling aromantic to my mom but didn't tell her I'm aromantic. I was like I wouldn't mind dating but I don't feel a need to I'm okay without dating and she was like yeah that makes sense but knowing her if I said I'm aromantic she would just tell me I have to wait for the right person and that I'm still young so it was an odd situation

      I'm with you there, I've heard this sentence too often (same as "you'll change your mind"). And I'm not even out (yet):S.
      But congrats you brought up the courage to tell her indirectly. That's awesome! :aropride:

      Aw man, I hope both of you are able to come out freely one day! I have hope in you both 💚 and that’s good that she is at least ok with that decision, at least she accepts this. Just remember that you’re awesome and keep staying that way! 💚

      when i was questioning, i described aromanticism to my mom and she thought it was "sad," then when i came out she said she "wasn't worried about dating at 17 either" even though i was in a relationship at the time (wow, that was over 3 years ago?), but i tried to explain further and i think she accepts it, my dad too.  like i think the possibility that i'll change is definitely in their minds but like they're going with it for now?  idk, it could certainly be worse.  good luck.

  5. so ive taken a liking to crocheting and am almost done with a striped blanket which got be thinking that it would be pretty cool to make an aro flag blanket

      Wow, that's so cool! I actually just joined a crochet club that my friend started, so maybe one day I'll make a blanket like that :)

  6. Ironically my final paper for my 18th century literature class is on an author's view of first loves vs. second loves

    Aromantic Character Headcanons

    I headcanon Aloy from the video game Horizon Zero Dawn as aro because almost every character in the game flirts with her at some point but she's always like thanks not interested and she has a large group of friends she cares for immensely

    Harmful Romance Movie Tropes

    I can definitely attest to the fact that some of these tropes were misguiding and made it more confusing to find out I was aro. The whole soulmate concept and the idea that you had to have love to have an interesting and meaningful life made me ignore the fact that I didn't actually feel love and didn't need it to be happy. It wasn't until years later that I realized I could be completely happy without a romantic love and it helped me acknowledge that the whole time I was waiting for some "true love" person that I hadn't really felt any romantic love for anyone anyways.

    Writing Thread

    For me it took 3 days but I didn't work on it non-stop. It was a good few hours each day though.

    Writing Thread

    I usually write poetry/prose and recently I wrote a poem for class where we had to find a place in nature and describe that place without directly describing it. It's really long but I think it turned out pretty good so if anyone wants to read it:
  14. So I had to write a hella long poem for class and I’m actually kinda proud of it should I post it somewhere on here?

    1. Tagor


      You should definitely post it. I there's this thread, but you can also open a new one.

  15. There’s a person I wanna be friends with but idk how to do that
