  1. But I think the reason why aromantic symbols aren't really widespread is, besides only being recognized relatively recent, that aromantics don't really need to find each other. Homosexuals and to a lesser extent aces want to enter into a romantic relationship and thus are looking for somebody like them. For aros on the other hand, half of them aren't interested in some form of cohabiting as they are aroace and (from what I've heard) friends just are enough for them. For allosexual aros, in my opinion, it is just easier to look for close friends who share your interests and then introduce them to aromanticism than to try finding another allosexual aro and hope that he or she shares your interests. The chance of meeting such a person in the real world by accident just is really tiny. Disclaimer: I don't have any real experience with dating and thing like this, this is just what I thought reading through this forum. And I know many of us would like to meet another aro in the real world just to talk a bit, but at least for me this is just like "yeah, it would be cool to meet someone", but it doesn't have a high priority as exchanging experiences online is possible and way more convenient than talking to someone in person.
  2. This topic basically was discussed here already, but there wasn't really an answer. In my opinion, the flag and a green colors are sufficient for most purposes as basically nobody outside of the LGBT community knows it. If I had to choose a symbol, I would vote for a green and black arrow on a white background. This would be even less obvious than a flag but would still represent the aro colors and use the widely known arrow as a symbol. My problem with rings and a green heart, which also was a suggested symbol, is that as a male I can't really wear them as it would be uncommon to wear them in general, independent of the color. Another problem of a green heart is that it is either to common (completely green) or basically like the flag and really obvious (in flag colors).
  3. I did a poll some while ago about the gender distribution here on the forum. Apparently, there are twice as many females here than males. This result was also reproduced by a study I saw on tumblr some while ago. Since then I've been wondering if this is something which inherent to aromanticism or if it is just a sampling bias. Right now, my theory is that it is a sampling bias caused by women talking more often about love with their friends. If this is true, it might lead to an increased psychological strain because of not being able to contribute anything to the conversation and just realizing more easily that something is "off", resulting in a higher proportion of women actually investigating about aromanticism. But I don't have any experience with this. I can just say for myself that I personally basically never talk about love with my friends (but this could also just be because all of my friends are nerds) and only looked into aromanticism because of curiosity as I didn't think it would matter much if I was aromantic.

    Real friends with benefits are a rarity

    For me, it's the same from the other side. I'd like to be friends with some girls, but I'm interested in math, computers and physics which doesn't make it easy to find someone to really have a conversation with as I'm even worse at finding a topic everybodys interested in than at starting conversations (at which I'm pretty bad).
  5. I think that aromanticism has some epigenetic cause. With this explanation, both answers can be true. Epigenetic markers can be set before birth but can also be changed due to environmental influences.

    Shipping

    I never really got why you should ship two fictional characters. If they have a relationship it's lucky for them but I only really care about the main plot. In real life I wouldn't like it if somebody shipped me so I don't do it myself (not to menting that I'm way to less empathic to actually know if some people would fit together). I also think it would be kind of an invasion of their privacy and free will.
