  1. I consider myself romance favorable. I enjoy romance in fiction and I sometimes like hearing people talk about their relationships despite never wanting it for myself. I feel that in a weird, counter-intuitive way, my aromanticism makes me enjoy those things more because never experiencing romantic attraction myself causes me to be more curious about what it feels like, if that makes sense. Seems like that's just me though lol.
  2. I've always really liked romance in fiction, and I just figured that at some point I would experience those feelings. I kept assuming that I was too young to feel romantic attraction. Then at age 15 I realized my friends were dating and that I was old enough to be interested in that but I wasn't and never had been. Still took me a little while after that to discover the term aromantic and use that term to describe myself.
  3. I'm aromantic heterosexual and I've had a fair amount of squishes. The vast majority of them have been on girls. For me I think it's because I'm usually friends with girls and I'm more comfortable around them. Anyway I think it's normal to have squishes on both sexes.

    i don't know...

    You're not too young to know. You sound aromantic to me, but you're the only one who can decide if that term fits you. Sensual attraction: the desire to interact with others in a tactile, non-sexual way, such as through hugging or cuddling. Just because you experience sensual attraction doesn't mean you necessarily experience romantic attraction. Also, as you pointed out, that was just in a fantasy. Questioning is good and healthy, but it can be stressful. You don't have to figure out everything right now.
  5. I love hugging, but I only enjoy hugging close friends and family. I hate hugging people I don’t know well and I wish that hugging as a greeting wasn’t part of my culture. I’ve never kissed anyone, but I would like to and think I would enjoy it. I love cuddling although I only do it with my family. I experience sensual attraction stronger than I would imagine most people do and I frequently feel the urge to hug and cuddle people.
