    Writing / Fic event?

    Isn't that basically what Aggressively Arospec Week is? 😮

    Aromanticism effect on social skills

    Yes, it was. And, as I said, social skills and social desires are not the same thing.

    Aromanticism effect on social skills

    That's a little rude... Social skills ≠ social desires. You can have terrible social skills and not necessarily be antisocial. I mean, I'm absolutely terrible at a lot of video games, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy them, you know?

    Aromanticism effect on social skills

    I'm terrible at socialization, but I think that's not so much because of my aromanticism and more just because of my personality. I'm very shy and tend to not talk to anyone unless they approach me first.

    We Should have more Sign/Symbol/Sayings

    Speak for yourself, I literally lie awake at night wishing I had a way to find aros in real life. I think if I ever met another aro face-to-face I would probably cry out of relief.
  6. I'd say mostly how you connect with them. I consider all of my friends to be equally important, and I'd just as soon come running if any of them needed help as I would if my best friend did, but some of my friends definitely just get me more than others. To me, a best friend is just... someone who really clicks with you and your opinions and attitudes, I think, moreso than other people might. (Admittedly I only have one person I actually refer to as my best friend, but I think that's because we've called each other that for so long and for a long time neither of us really had any other friends, so I think it's kind of like a "That is exclusively her role and nobody else's" thing for me right now. I do have at least two other people I would consider my best friends if I weren't so reluctant to use the term for anyone other than her, tbh. But that's not a monogamy thing, it's just sort of a personal history thing)
  7. I mean, maybe this is just my having grown up with Time Warp Trio, but I have absolutely never thought that "best friend" is a concept that has to be reserved for one person only. I don't see why one couldn't have two, three, even four best friends. I wouldn't necessarily consider them more important than other friends, either.

    Oops! Uh oh! Yikes!

    Fake your own death.
  9. I agree with what Mark said. While the idea seems... nice, and I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing to put them both in the same book (provided you make sure it’s explicitly clear that the two are not the same), as a bisexual aro myself, I am wary of the asexual community. Oh, here’s something you can put in your book: Aromantics are often erased, being conflated with asexuality but rarely acknowledged as more than a footnote, and allo aros who want support must be forced to stay quiet about one half of their identity depending on which community they’re in. Anyway, I would love to potentially do my part to help fellow aro allos like me and I would like to be optimistic about this, but in addition to the above mentioned things, you haven’t really given enough details for me to fully trust this. I would like answers to the following questions, as best as possible: 1. Who, specifically, is writing this book? Who is editing it? Who is the publisher? 2. What measures will be taken to both confirm and protect the identities and personal testimonies of those involved? How do we know we’re not just giving you our life stories for free, to do what you want with? 3. Will this book be accessible to your average reader, or is it strictly a professional manual? 4. When will it be published? 5. How much of the book will be devoted to aromanticism and aro-specific issues? What about allo aros? I will not just smile and obediently let my identity be a paragraph in asexuality’s story yet again. I want our voices to be heard equally.

    Early but asking anyway - Halloween plans?

    I'm going as this dude: Because I'm an idiot who makes terrible decisions and always has to have the most complicated Halloween costume I could possibly choose. Although to be fair, everything except the wig should be fairly easy (I'm not making a duel disk because frankly I think they look stupid, and I don't want to carry one). I'm hopefully going to make it out of craft foam pepakura with wig hair glued to it, but we'll see...
