i don't know...

Question

So, I'm a 15 y/o girl, and recently I "discovered"  the term aromantic. I always thought that I was straight, but I never really wanted a relationship. I saw my friends getting relationships and felt like I also had to, but as I thought about it in the middle of the night, it always ended up with: 'no not yet, maybe i'm just too young or something.' But then I randomly saw a video about aro-people, and i didn't know what that meant, so i looked it up and actually, I relate to a lot of things. Like not wanting to be in a relationship, never had a real crush, don't understand the point of having a relationship/or to marry.

 

And as long as i've known, i've seen myself living alone, with no partner, but with 12 cats lol

 

So now I'm confused cause i have dreams about kissing someone, and cuddling (very detailed lol) but i don't want that in real life. I really want to talk to someone who has experience with being aro, and i want to figure out what i am, or am i too young to know?

You're not too young to know. You sound aromantic to me, but you're the only one who can decide if that term fits you.

Sensual attraction: the desire to interact with others in a tactile, non-sexual way, such as through hugging or cuddling. Just because you experience sensual attraction doesn't mean you necessarily experience romantic attraction. Also, as you pointed out, that was just in a fantasy.

Questioning is good and healthy, but it can be stressful. You don't have to figure out everything right now.
