Wondering if I can in the future have a romantic relationship with someone.

Question

Guest d2c4b...336

Right now I definitely know I don’t enjoy/want to be in a romantic relationship with anybody, but what if I changed my mind or it turned out that I did want to be in a romantic relationship at a different point in my life with somebody? Would I be in a different part of the  “spectrum” of aromanticism or just not aromantic at all (is it even possible to find romantic attraction one day if you already identify as a romantic person). Sorry if this was a stupid question.

You can identify however you feel at this time. To quote Connie Glynn's great video about aromanticism, "Some people are what they are forever, and that is valid, and some people change their identity, and that is also valid." She goes on to say that, "This is my truth right now, and if it changes, it doesn't mean it was any less true." Which basically means, if you feel that an identity fits you in the present, you can identify with it even if you're not sure if it will always fit you. And you can still be on the spectrum if you have some level of romantic attraction, or not. Only you can define what you are because only you know exactly what you feel.

It's okay to take a label right now even if it might not fit you later on. And if it doesn't fit you down the line, you can change the label.
