Aromantic representation

Recommended Posts

So... I was watching Star Trek: The Next Generation today and I don't know, but I guess I always thought Captain Picard was (maybe) aro? He's had love interests in the past but I thought he might have just been confused. Well anyway, I was watching the episode Qpid where his love interest from the past season comes back *, and he's TOTALLY IN LOVE. Like 100%! This kind of totally crushed me because I always liked him for being the LEAST romantic character on Star Trek. 

 

Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing?

 

* For people who haven't seen Star Trek: The Next Generation: Captain Picard is one of the least romantic people ever. And now it turns out he was just being professional and hiding his feelings...

I was recently watching Isn't it romantic and I loved the movie! Except for the last 15 minutes or so... The movie makes fun of society's obsession with romance and rom-coms in general and a big part of the plot is that the main character realizes that she should just love herself, which is a great message. But in the last 15 minutes of the movie she realizes that wow she has been in love with her best friend for a very long time and wow now she can finally be completely happy 🙄. So it's a great movie if you ignore the last 15 minutes.
