  1. I've gotten belittled by some "asexuals" on Facebook. I told the person who runs the page and blocked the haters. The haters basically think aromantics have the knowledge level of kindergarteners. All I did was comment on an Asexual Aces post. The jokes on them though, because I'm writing about similar ish things in a story of mine...
  2. Being belittled by commenters on a FB post about Asexuality for mentioning being Aro and they treat you like you're back in kindergarten. I blocked them within minutes and told the person who runs the page (who sided with me.) Being AroAce outside of Aven and here can be so trying at times. From that happening, I have some new material to write .
  3. ^^ This. When someone tells me they broke up because of cheating . Also- aside from really close friends- I don't understand discussing the romantic/sexual aspects of a romantic/sexual relationship. Made even more awkward when someone who's not even close to me (who seems to forget I'm AroAce), is talking about it. I feel like the only way I'll ever understand romantic/sexual relationships is through writing fictional characters- it's the only time I won't freak out over something romantic/sexual.
  4. This is more related to being ace than Aro... My heterosexual heteroromantic friend decides to tell me they broke up with their most recent girlfriend because of sexual reasons. (Why do I have to know this information??) Then they proceed to tell me that they've given up on dating. I pretty much did the messaging equivalent of backing away slowly.
  5. I guess because I've been aromantic my whole life, even when I was in high school I was decidedly against dating and all that nonsense. Basically, when meeting new people in person, I'm not about to use the terms "aromantic" or "asexual" because there's a high chance they aren't familiar with them. So I basically say I'm not interested in dating etc..and even when I get the whole "You'll find someone one day" etc nonsense- I don't feel affected by it because I've heard it for so long.
  6. Well, the most stressful week of the year is overwith for me. Finally in SC away from the rat race of NJ..

      :/ 3 more days 'till Friday.. Got any icecream?

  8. Guten Tag! Sehr Gut. Está una dia muy bien! I know German and Spanish, but I'm also hoping to hone in on a few of the Slavic languages- maybe even try Mandarin or Korean.
  9. In a week, I will no longer live in NJ...(you oppressively high taxes, high cost of living, very stressed out culture, type of state...especially the part by NYC..South Jersey is nicer anyway)

      Congrats on moving on! I wonder why so many aces are still staying in NJ.

      As someone who is from South Jersey but currently living elsewhere, congratulations! :P

      South Jersey is so much nicer. I went to college down there a long while back. :) (still has the high taxes tho :/ ) The suburban counties close to NYC are always congested etc and the infrastructure is soo old and can't handle modern traffic well. I LOVED the Pine Barrens :)

  10. I stopped giving a damn what others think, and actually came out as ace on my FB author page.

      Good job! How'd it go?

      Well done! :icecream::cake: The utility of stopping giving a damn is one of life's best-kept secrets!

  11. I'm through with real life interactions, people are too unfriendly and give the stupidest remarks, over food no less. Plot Twist- this isn't one of my parents (whom, I'm much more used to.)

      Are you alright? If you ever want to talk about what happened (or stuff that happens in the future), feel free to message me.

      People are stupid. >: (

       

      But you're a cowgirl - and cowgirls have superpowers! :icecream:

  12. This is the most recent picture of me I have on my laptop. It's from when I finished sewing my dirndl skirt in sewing class. Spoiler Also, Hi! Spoiler
  13. I can barely make a post on AVEN without it giving me Internal Server Errors.. :(

  14. Even though I'm aro. I wish I knew how to help my romantic friends. : ( It's all the longing for a partner that...I don't understand the want for?? I'd be up for a QPR, as long as it's not society's boxed up version of awkward dating. I don't know how to help them.
  15. The only reason I dislike AVEN is the loading and server problems.

    1. owl

      There are some things I dislike about it... but that's pretty much the main thing haha. Let's hope we don't ever have that problem!

  16. Joined . Thankfully my friends on there either already know about my aromanticism or I don't care what they think. (I only have 2 friends so far lol)
  17. I admit to that- even if the incident in question was years ago, and long before I was on tumblr or AVEN. It eventually helped me relate to one of my now favourite franchises (been part of that fandom for over 2 years now)
  18. I didn't like how sexist some of the possible answers were. Spoiler S.A.G.E. Test Results Your Raw Score is: 340, which indicates that overall you are Androgynous Your appearance is Androgynous Your brain processes are mostly that of a Androgynous person. You appear to socialize in a androgynous manner. You believe you have mild conflicts about your gender identity. You indicated your were born Female. ANALYSIS: Female to Male Crossdresser NOTES: Your Answers indicate your psychological state has likely prevailed since you were quite young. You are in a statistical minority as a anallophilic crossdresser. Most crossdressers are heterosexual. Your motivation for crossdressing may be driven by the undirected nature of your sexuality, as a way to more fully explore the Male gender role. It's somewhat accurate, My next cosplay project is Hiccup's Race to the Edge outfit. To be honest- I'd say my conflicts have more to do with the sexism in culture and society, rather than anything to do with how comfortable I am in my own body.
  19. Aro Ace and I Sometimes dress feminine. (Idk if this is related or not- but my next cosplay is a male character so.)
  20. I'm interested. It's just that I'm rarely on Steam. My username on there is the same as here.
  21. And AVEN went down for me....

      Oh nooo! It's been pretty shakey lately! Our awesome-ness is just too much for the servers to handle.

      And it's still shakey today LOL. 

  22. Same. I'm moving where they're about to get extreme heat for the first time this summer, and I plan on staying inside in air conditioning during that. If I don't get outside for some days, I tend to get depressed. It's a low level of it and manageable, but it's harder when it's dreary cloudy cold weather for me.
  23. Same. I never experienced it when I hit my teens, and the thought of dating someone still scares me. I knew I didn't like romance, but I didn't know there was a word for it until I got onto tumblr and followed some blogs that re-blogged posts about asexuality and aromanticism.
  24. I agree on this for sure. It was done in a believable way for me, and when I hit the episode Doomsday, I'm crying by the end of it. So, here's my 2 cents. I've experienced romantic/sexual attraction before, to varying degrees. At the time I thought they were crushes, and one was a small amount of romantic attraction, but that faded within weeks. It was 5 years ago so I barely count it toward me being grey-aro. Sexual attraction for me, I feel like it's been even longer. Not that I want to experience it anyway. Fictional romance when done right can be awesome. I've also read and enjoyed smut, fluff, and darker stories. (My fictional writing gets DARK.) Same. If it's a well done romantic comedy. Ok- my example might be really tame, but I'm a David Tennant fan, so I turned on The Decoy Bride on Netflix for the first time and loved it. It's relatively light on the romance, or is it because it's a Scottish film, that it doesn't seem as "in-your-face" as American romantic comedies. Edit- The first time I watched it was in Sept- and for the most part- it's one of my go-to movies for when I have a bad day, unless I'm feeling really romance repulsed, which is rare for me, but it happens.
  25. Travel isn't number 1 on my goals, but it's up there. After I get settled in after this upcoming move, I'm going to use that location as home base. Eventually I want to visit places like Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Scandinavia, and some other European countries. I want to publish fantasy/fiction novels. I don't know how high what I have so far would rank for fantasy though. I have mages in their (my original characters') universe that can be either good or bad. I want to travel so I can experience different cultures- which goes hand in hand with world building. As much as I'm creating this fictional universe, I want it to be as diverse as the real world.
