  1. A towel that doesn’t absorb water well
  2. I would rather have everyone else be immortal. Would you rather be famous when you’re alive and be forgotten when you’re dead, or unknown when you’re alive and famous after you’re dead?
  3. Granted! Your money will travel all over the world, but you don’t get to go with it. I wish it wasn’t raining.
  4. Granted, but your cooking will only ever come out right if you make twice as much as you need, and any leftovers spoil before you can eat them. Therefore, half of it always goes to waste. I wish I had the money I need to have my name and gender marker changed on my legal documents.
  5. Granted, but climates are thrown off all over the world making your country the only habitable place. Everyone else in the world tries to move there, making your country disastrously overcrowded. I wish for a plate of pancakes.
  6. I don't think it's that common for people's sexual or romantic orientations to change drastically (at least it's not often talked about), but it does happen on occasion. However, if at this point, a particular label seems to fit you and makes you feel more comfortable with yourself, feel free to use it, and if later you realize that there's another term that fits you better, you can change it. If you do later change your label, it doesn't necessarily mean that you were wrong before, just that your feelings may have changed or that you've learned more about yourself and your perspective has changed as a result, and that doesn't invalidate your feelings now. Personally, I've tried on numerous labels in the past 6 years as I've tried to figure myself out, and it's quite possible that in the future I'll find another word (or multiple other words) that fit me better than greyromantic, genderfluid, and/or asexual, but for now, having all three of those words helps me to describe my own experiences as I currently understand them and gives me a sense of community. For those reasons, I find them useful, even though I know there's a chance that I'll feel the need to change labels again in the future. Also, if getting married and having a family is what you want, you might consider the notion that you can have a committed relationship with someone without being romantically involved in the traditional sense (such as a queerplatonic relationship), and you can raise children if you so choose, whether or not you are at all romantically inclined. I understand it might not be exactly what you've envisioned for yourself, but you might find it worth thinking about. I hope some part of that convoluted response might be helpful to you.
  7. I think my best coming out story was from when I used to identify as a lesbian. My cousin was visiting for the summer. He was 13 and I didn't know that he knew anything about sexualities or what he thought about that sort of thing. I was in a place of feeling confident in identifying as gay in my own mind, but was terrified of telling anyone. Towards the end of the summer, we were talking while bouncing on a trampoline, and the topic of sexualities came up. He asked me point-blank: Cousin: What are you? Me: Um... uh... I'm a lesbian. Cousin: Really? Cool! I'm bisexual. And that's how my cousin and I first came out to each other.
  8. I'm fairly new as well, but from what I gather, it was a typo on the chat that became a running joke. There was a previous joke about potatoes, and then someone accidentally typed "popapo", which became "papo", which ultimately became this little guy , and all his variations. This thread explains in more detail: http://www.arocalypse.com/forums/topic/509-papos/?tab=comments#comment-14693
  9. 1) What would be a suitable animal mascot for your romantic orientation? (Maybe look through emojis for ideas?) The first thing that comes to mind is a seagull. Many people don't like seagulls, so there have been times I've told someone that that's my spirit animal, and they've said "Oh, I'm so sorry!" which kinda reminds me of a staple ignorant comment about aromanticism. Also, they're white, grey, and black. Add some green and you have an aromantic flag. 2) Would you use 'heartbroken' to describe an aromantic going through relationship related grief? Why not? I suppose it is frequently used in a way that has romantic connotations, but it just means "very upset". It could mean being very upset about anything. 3) Would you describe a QPR more of a modified friendship or a modified romantic relationship? Or is it it's own thing? I've not had any personal experience with QPRs, but I would think of it as using aspects of both, but ultimately it's own thing. If you think of relationships as being like colors, you might say that romantic relationships are red, friendships are yellow, and QPRs are orange. Orange is a mix of red and yellow, but also a distinct color.
  10. I would advocate for including anyone who feels like they should be included in the LGBTQ+ community, especially since the LGBTQ+ community doesn't have any one unifying issue or trait that applies to all LGBT (even without the Q+) people. Some people try to argue that same-gender attraction is that, but there are straight trans folks who still fall under the "T" in LGBT. There are some specific spaces that are oriented towards one particular subset of the LGBTQ+ community because they are focused on one particular issue that affects some but not all members of the LGBTQ+ community, and others would be considered allies in those spaces, but in the broader community, I think it's most productive to say that all who feel they belong are welcome, rather than waste time discussing who belongs and who doesn't.
  11. I'm easily startled, so I would generally rather people not touch me without asking. As long as I'm expecting it I'm all for hugs and cuddles. Cheek or forehead kisses are nice too. I've never actually kissed anyone on the lips so I can't speak to what my reaction to that would be, but generally think of it as a romantic gesture, so I have a hard time imagining myself being comfortable with that unless it's with someone that I'm romantically interested in.
