  1. I thought I was straight. I didn't really like girls (probably because I was projecting my dysphoria all over them) so I thought "huh, guess I have to be straight!" (And this was also back when I thought I was a girl because "huh, I don't feel like a guy, must be a girl!") I really like the looks of gender-neutral-presenting people, so I just figured I just had a thing for pretty boys.
  2. Hello, I'm Finch! I returned here on a whim after searching for the aro pride flag, and it really seems to have picked up a bunch in activity! I'm a teen living in the USA, I wear big jackets, and I have a sense of humor that mostly consists of dirty jokes (which means I'm reduced to puns on this lovely forum, not that I really mind). I'm seriously into fantasy and biology, and right now I'm taking a Physics class and trying to understand special relativity! Fun times. I'll probably be getting on here mostly to vent about incomprehensible romantic stuff, and maybe do some off-topic discussion. Who knows? Nice to meet you all!
  3. I really like this article! I've known for a while now that romantic relationships seemed a bit overrated, but this thing really worded it in a great way. I have a lot of trouble with the fifth bit in just about every single social situation. I just don't understand many social norms or taboos or traditions, and most of the time things need to be spelled out to me. I've never dated, but if nothing can be blunt in romance then I'm going to hightail it away from there. I want to understand my friends, not spend all day trying to decipher whatever the fuck they are even saying! I could use that time for so many other things!
  4. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY! (time for that one day of the year my family barbecues!!) If you don't celebrate it, that's fine!
  5. How do you define or describe it?? To me, it's just a big ball of stuff and I am just floating around being not-stuff somewhere else. That's pretty much my only frame of reference.
  6. @Cassiopeia You remind me of parchment and cabbage and I have no idea why?
  7. "You're just being another stupid attention-whore speshul snowflak!! You are horrible!" Sure this may just be on the internet but it always infuriates me. (Honestly Tumblr is one of the few places where I can find people who actually believe aros exist and it's really sad...)
  8. Yippee kai-yay. ...I am so sorry, I HAD to do it!!
  9. @XesEri Yay we're buds now! Pistachio ice cream has a nice taste, my problem with it is that it hurts a lot when it touches my teeth. Tongues are life savers, you know?
  10. Why are people so possessive of their romantic partners anyway? I mean, I see this is every single romance! What's up with that?
  11. And the love story actually has well-developed pacing, in-tune emotional scenes, no insta-love... you know that you should enjoy it and that most people would rate it a smashing success, and you actually do like the movie in some small detached movie critic part of your head, but you can't tear yourself away from the fact that the realm of amazing adventure was shoved away and replaced by this--this filthy garbage plot. All you wanted was for one damned dragon to show up on screen! #LittleAroThings
  12. When rom-coms are more cringe-comedy than anything else and you just want a good old-fashioned fantasy adventure movie to come on. #LittleAroThings
  13. Hi, fellow 3A! Nice meeting you, and tthanks for the food! Didn't know we were rare, but...that's pretty obvious in hindsight. So sushi is agender food? Nice to know! Stay a-okay!
  14. Pottermore placed me in Hufflepuff and, on a second shot different account, I got Ravenclaw because I toned down my niceness and went for my intellect. Both are cool, Hufflepuffs are kind and accepting of all (YES), Raven is intellectual (yes)! The aptitude test for factions placed me in Amity first and Abnegation second, very correct, but I'm also lowest at Erudite. Hey, I can be damned smart while being a decent human being, thank you! My lowest score this school year was 84% in Foreign Languages! As for the camp quiz... Hermes? Come on, that quiz had really weird questions! Well, Hermes seemed to care a lot about his kids in the books, that's nice. EDIT: Did the Buzzfeed Combo house quiz and got Huffleclaw, yes this fits me to a tee.
  15. I heard it has paprika in it, and that's all I know so I'm just going to go around sprinkling paprika on my chips when I find more maybe.
  16. How do you make American chip spice? Seriously, it's the best and I'm kind of dying because I just found some chips in the fridge and heated them up and they had this spice and it was great, and there were no more chips so I need to make some pronto. Or just find but I don't want unpronounceable chemicals in my body really. So can you make it from scratch?
  17. Yay I've join the fam! I guess I could just lick the vanilla and chocolate(icon!!) very carefully on that, I don't like strawberry ice cream too much. Ooh, and chocolate chip cookies! They're great soft.
  18. Hey, just noticed, is ice cream a thing here like cake on AVEN? That's neat! (But I can't eat ice cream because my teeth are too sensitive, aw...) AAAs FOR GREATNESS (b/c I don't care about winning)
  19. "So, you were friendzoned... So try to move on. They aren't interested in you bud, stay friends with them and find someone who wants your romantic advances! I get that you may have had a crush on them, and that rejection stings, but remember that there are plenty of other people who might want to end up in a relationship with you, so don't focus on this one person. You may need some time to grieve for the-relationship-that-will-not-be, that's fine, but try to move on. And don't ever become mean, because meanness has a way of making you below most people's standards of friend or romantic partner. Just go with the idea and be nice to everyone, you'll probably find somebody who you love and they'll love you back just as much. Take care!" -- my response to somebody who says that they were friendzoned in a non-aggressive fashion. If they were mean, I'd probably try the same thing, and if it didn't work I'd either invite them to a cup of tea to get them firing on all cylinders again (if they were my friend/a nice acquaintance) or just decide they aren't worth my time being so rude. But friendzone tends to be used in a very selfish manner, like "They friendzoned me, f#@$ them, f#@$ all the things!" That's just rude and they should keep in mind that the other person had a reason to reject their advances.
  20. Hi arospec friends or acquaintances or allies! I'm Kitson -- or at least that's what I wish my name was. My real name gets confusing because it's a homophone of a very common word said by my polite classmates that constantly confuses me. Also it's too feminine for my identity, but I'm getting off topic, here's how I found this site! So, I found this site through a thread on AVEN actually, and it's nice to have a whole site about romanticism! That's fantastic! Anyway, I discovered the word "aromantic" from a blog called "Asexuality Archive," and that description clicked faster than my asexuality clicked because I didn't understand what sexual attraction meant. That may have been a tip off. And for a while I tried to figure out what romantic attraction was and then gave up because I was apparently being overly scientific and there was no concrete answer. So I decided that I was aro, and my aceness clicked in soon after, just before I got on AVEN. Then I realized that gender was an impossible topic as well, so I thought "welp I literally cannot 'get' what society means anymore" and jumped into the void of sense that was not understanding nonsense, which lead me to a ton of angry internet trolls, angry binary adherents, and this site. So here I am! On more about me, because my triple-a lack-of-a-soul can't define me that much, I'm also a roleplayer some days, I'm an introvert through-and-through, I'm apparently rather smart for my age group, I would like to be a biologist who writes silly one-shot ideas about fantasy, and I thought I had a crush on Tom Hiddleston one time a couple of years back (and then I realized that his face was just pretty and things made more sense). Also, my English teacher once said that my writing style is too casual, is her assessment of my typing pattern correct? So what about you people? What's going on?
