  1. #1 Arrow Redesign Green: Opposite of red, colour of romance White: The variety of sexualities & relationships aros can have. Black: Absence of attraction The design is based on the popular arrow symbolism in the aro community. #2 Dark Green Redesign #3 Bright Green Redesign I wanted to make a brighter version of the Dark Green Redesign (#2) so the colours contrasted more and it would be easier to see for some people. So far I have been getting good reception on redesigns 1 and 2 on reddit and so wanted to see what people here think. Constructive criticism is welcomed.
  2. Hey, I would be interested in doing so. I know some french but it's not good enough to do so myself. It was a stylistic choice to keep it from looking too cluttered and hard to process. the video is here
  3. Update 29/06/2021: I have finally finished the document analysing and discussing the data from the survey. I have yet to release the accompanying video for it but I hope you find it as interesting as I do. If you have any problems navigating the document or you think it has an error, don't hesitate to tell me in this thread or in my contact email in the document. I will update with the link to the accompanying video when it is ready, it shouldn't take too long from now. Link to document
  4. The term is ambiamourous :) There's a lot of intersections, especially when you consider that non-monogamous and aromantic people are heavily affected by amatonormativity. I labelled myself as polyamourous for a while (as well as polyaffectionate) until I found the term ambiamourous fairly recently. I would be in poly and mono qprs and other non romantic arrangements. My partner and I are mono but we like swinging, although it's hard to find people who aren't just mucking around or are just a single bloke pretending to have a girlfriend. I think I used polyamourous roughly around the time of questioning my romantic orientation in 2019.
  5. This survey will ask questions about what it's like to have autism & be asexual &/or Aromantic and the other way around with questions on orientation, discrimination and others. Data will be used to help make a YouTube video on my Aro/ace related channel about the Intersectionality between autism & being asexual &/or Aromantic as someone with autism who is Aromantic. All responses will be kept anonymous. Link
  6. Well I never said it was finished, and there's not a lot of stuff on Aromanticism in the first place. I basically have to work with what I can find at the moment. Also, there are many sections/sheets/categories, which you can access by clicking on the headings that should show up top on mobile and along the bottom on PC, there are more than 9 things sourced there, same for the asexuality document. That sounds great
  7. Aromanticism Asexuality For a while, I've been working on a spreadsheet to compile research and experiences of asexuality, and I've just started one for aromanticism as well. If there is anything I could add to any of these, let me know and I'll take a look.
  8. Just staying inside cuddling under blankets
  9. I got 67% aro 17% demisexual 8% not aromantic 8% alloromantic asexual 0% aroace
  10. Not at all; I relate to you on this, however my romance repulsion does overpower this. I feel I will always be curious as to what it would be like to be alloro and be in a romantic relationship and how it would make things easier for me in some ways.
  11. I also think what people see as romantic and what they don't see as romantic is different for everyone, even alloromantics. For example, I see the word 'date' as romantic, as well as 'boyfriend' and 'girlfriend'. These make me romance repulsed, so I prefer to use other terms such as 'partner' instead. I also really dislike pet names. I personally don't see kissing as a romantic thing, but more of a sexual thing outside of family, and I've seen other people like that online. Before my first kiss, I wasn't too sure if I would like kissing someone due to the fact that I am very particular in what I do and don't do, and being touch averse and demisensual makes it harder for me to figure it out. Holding hands is a definitive no for me. I just can't separate it from romance at all. However, I am very open to hugs and cuddling and I see it as a sensual thing I do with those closest to me, this includes close friends. I also like hanging out with people and I have never understood how people thought that was romantic, I had that a lot because a previous best friend of mine was a guy and I'm female (I'm not even straight but people didn't know that for a while). It's a complicated thing really. I don't know if, for me, there is a line or not.
  12. I believe your sexual and romantic orientations almost always line up with each other, unless you are alloace or alloaro (the SAM exists for alloaros, aroaces and alloaces). I've never seen an allosexual alloromantic person use the SAM in a way that doesn't hint at some sort of internalised homophobia, biphobia, lesbophobia, etc. And that's usually the case. Either that and/or they are confusing sexual or romantic attraction with another type of attraction such as platonic, alterous or sensual. For example, it could be that someone's attraction to the opposite gender/sex isn't strong enough in a romantic way for the person to realise they're actually biromantic as well as bisexual and not a bisexual lesbian. For example, my attraction to men isn't quite as strong as it is for women and that, along with other things, made me believe I was a lesbian for years. It was only fairly recently that I had sexual attraction to men and that was very strange for me, since I was convinced before that I wasn't and wouldn't ever be in any way attracted to them at all. I know the struggle of feeling ashamed of being attracted to men as a sapphic and feeling like you somehow betrayed lesbians because you found that you weren't a lesbian after all, and I dealt with a lot of internalised biphobia at first. Perhaps allosexual alloromantics could have different sexual and romantic orientations, but if that were the case, it would be fairly uncommon I think.
  13. I do believe QPPs can work where one party is alloromantic, but I think if I were in this situation, I would encourage my alloromantic partner(s) to find romance somewhere else, with someone else whilst still being in a QPP with me. As I am still allosexual, I would also seek to find sexual fulfillment with someone else. I don't know if people who aren't poly like myself can do that but I think it's unfair to stop people from fulfilling their needs, as long as both parties are informed of what's happening. But I do understand that people who are not poly could find this difficult. I also think it's a bit risky to be in this partnership due to both your parents' intolerance for gay people, but if you both are willing to take that risk, go for it. Just be careful. I think you just need to talk to her about what you both want from your relationship.
