Single Status Update
several years ago, not long before i started identifying as aroace, my parents put up this archway/trellis/gate in our garden, and i was outside with one of my best friends one days when she said she could imagine me under that arch with a future boyfriend, and she said she had this mental image of the ideal boyfriend for me, though she couldn't really describe that image. i didn't have a mental image, and trying to conjure one up didn't really work. obvious aro moment.
update: i asked my friend about this, and she told me she'd forgotten about that until now, but said, "i think i was picturing some artsy white boy. it was a different time."
my response? "gross."
