  1. Receiving a confession

    Good for you!!!
  2. I thought someone was asking me out on a date and was basically on the brink of having a meltdown but it turns out it was just as strictly platonic friends and the amount of relief I feel is like heroin.

  5. Two years ago one of my closest friends had made an internet friend (we can call him Vicky) that she basically became QPPs with(she doesn't have that concept in her vocab). She is allo but this person was someone she was able to connect with on a very deep and emotional level (of course there was a period when she did have romantic feelings for this guy but that's another story). For two years, there wasn't one conversation where she didn't bring him up and honestly I was just happy that she had someone she could confide so much in. but recently (for about 6 months) they have begun fighting a lot and I could finally see how much of a toxic relationship it was. Basically, my friend put a lot of effort into maintaining the relationship but Vicky wasn't as committed. He would say to her, he would be there for her, he would always have her back, and he would always put her first. But that was usually all the things she had to do for him and it took a lot out of her. I remember seeing how emotionally drained she would be after she had to deal with one of his moods.He expected her to understand him completely without even having a chance to talk or communicate, and he wanted her to put up with his ridiculous moods. And he neglected her when she came to him. At first he seemed to listen and care, she did tell him a lot of her insecurities and worries and he became a vault of her secrets, but as time went on he kept on answering her with insincere replies and wasn't even present whenever they talked. He put other people above her and in general she really couldn't complain about it because he told her that he has every right to have relationships outside of her. And I respect that, but it's a problem when she becomes the last person on his mind and he generally stops caring about her. Also, when they fight, it always ends with her apologizing for "being inconsiderate" about his feelings and she told me she rarely hears him apologize to her. He is always in the right and she is always the one who messes up. She realizes how much of a shitty guy he is and is finally trying to get him out of her life. But, she has difficulty bringing up the topic of cutting ties. Is there anything I could do for her. I'm trying to be by her side but I want to know if there is anything else I could do

      @techno-trashcan Thanks for the advice, it just seemed like everyone was just going with someone and I did feel a kind of pressure :/. I really am just going for the dessert table which was said to be legendary.

    3. arokaladin


      the aro agenda is going to 'romantic' events for the sweets

    4. Eklinaar


      Oh my god going to prom for desserts.  Why didn't I think of that?

  7. God I hate being at church, everyone is really toxic and expect me to be straight, neurotypical, cis and down for marrying men

  8. Count to one million 🐭

  9. @Aurae Creepy guys are awful and they are even worse when you are aromantic
  10. So whenever someone asks me it usually is different between whether the person is a "safe" person or not (because I am really nice to everyone I get a lot of unnecessary adoration from a lot of my school's delinquents). If it's a regular person I just say I am not interested while if it's a delinquent I am just sort of leave them hanging and run away (bc most of the time they are men that are known for being violent if things don't go their way) while my other tougher friends go up to them and threaten them to stay away. Not ideal but if often times I don't feel safe just saying I'm uninterested or I have a bf(they just keep asking who the guy is).
  11. Only fellow aros will understand the amount of TURNT I am when I listen to aromantic anthem Oh No by Marina and the Diamonds

  12. Denial, Depression and Aromanticsm

    All the time. When I first realized that I was aromantic I felt as though there finally was an answer to why I was never fully able to relate to others. But afterwards I was depressed that there was going to be something that is a big part of others lives that I won't understand. From when I was young I loved the idea of having someone I could be emotionally intimate and fully honest with and I though the only way to get that was by being in a romantic relationship. Even though now I know that there are many other options that are just as fulfilling I still feel lonely
  13. aromantics in romantic relationships

    For me, typically romantically coded actions (hugging, kissing, holding hands, sex) can be done in a platonic way and I am comfortable with doing them with anyone I am friends with (not so much sex). I think this is a good analogy of why I would engage in a relationship that is "romantic" (I'm in it so it can't be full romo). I want all of the hugging, kissing, and hand holding but often times in order to establish a relationship which meets these, it may be required that it has to be romantic relationship. But I think that whatever the label maybe, there just needs to be full honest disclosure on both ends to what both are looking for in a relationship so that no one is hurt.
  14. Was sad after listening to a love song because I probably won't feel romantic feelings for anyone in my life but then I realized that it was just the internalized amatonormativity talking and went into the kitchen for some ice cream. I'm okay now:aroicecream:

    1. Eklinaar


      You can feel those feelings for ice cream.

    2. yenyyoo


      @Eklinaar I stand corrected

  15. Aromantic Confessions

    Same here! Apparently when you are in love, you are suddenly blinded from the most obvious solution that is in front of them.
