  1. Hiya! I recognize you from Tumblr. You make great aro memes!

  2. Ah, Everyone is John is fun! My friend group is unhappy with how the original misrepresents DID, so we decided we're going to run it as demons vying for possession of John. Your version is cool too! We also played a game where someone's goal was to get John to become pope.
  3. I recently dumped ("dumped" sounds so mean but I didn't want to be ambiguous) my now ex-romantic partner and the arophobic and amatonormative gremlin that lives in my brain is having a lot of fun with that.

      same for me. I'm sorry you're going through that. Ultimately, it's best for both of you. There's nothing wrong with ending a relationship when it comes to its end.

  4. I like to see how far along in a song that is romantic-coded I can pretend it can be about a relatively normative friendship.
  5. I finished my documentary! Here it is.

      awesome! sadly I am in an internet dead zone so my connection keeps dropping.I'll have to wait till I am back in civilization to watch. But do I spy a white Sony Xperia next to you?

  6. Hi! I started identifying as asexual and on the aromantic spectrum at age 14. I'm 17 now, and I am still identifying as asexual. When I was 15, I did get a crush, and I'm now dating my crush. Stuff changed. It was OK. It did feel a little embarrassing to tell people. That wasn't my fault. I never said I expected to never have a crush in the future. I just said I wasn't holding my breath and I wasn't sure if I had ever had a crush. People can just be insensitive about having your labels change. I'm not telling you that to scare you or discourage you from identifying as aroace. I just think

      aww, that sucks. hope you can fix it, or at least get a new one

      Thanks. I've been dating someone for a little over a month now. Maybe it's a sign 😜

  8. I'm staying on here even though I have a crush...but I'm continuing to identify as on the aromantic spectrum You do you!
  9. In the interest of being honest with everyone on here, I want to say that a friend I got a crush on two years ago and I are now officially in a romantic relationship. I’m not sure where exactly my feelings are since I’ve been trying to push the crush away since getting it because I didn’t want it to complicate our relationship, but here we are. I’m going to stay on Arocalypse if that’s alright with you all, because it does bill itself as a forum for people on the aromantic spectrum, not just aromantics, and I still consider myself on the spectrum. This is the second crush I’ve ever had if I had one back in fifth grade. 

    Anyway, keep living your best lives, and wish me luck!

      My feeling is that anyone who relates enough to the content on the site to want to spend time engaging with it 'belongs' here. If you had to prove all the time that you were 'aro enough', I would not like that. But I don't think this is that kind of place. Aros, grey-ros, demi-ros, romantic allies, etc, should all be made to feel equally welcome here, IMO. Good luck and let us know how your romantic relationship is going some time, if you ever feel like sharing something with us here ^_^.

  10. A character is established canonly aromantic in “The Penumbra Podcast”, in “Sportive Nymphs (Part 2)”. I don’t know how to get the little spoiler bar; I’ll try to figure it out tomorrow (err...today after I wake up) on my computer. Just, uh, don’t scroll down if you don’t want to know who it is! It’s Sir Talfryn! He comes out to his brother by telling him “I don’t like women or men” and it’s pretty clear he means he doesn’t like women or men romantically and sexually.
  11. Hey there! I'm in a situation really different than yours. Maybe what I can say about my personal experience isn't exactly relevant to you. That said, I think it's ok if you want to identify as "aromantic" or "on the aromantic spectrum". You're not hurting anyone by doing that. It's just a label that you can put on if you want to. The founder of AVEN, who, yes, I know is a problematic guy, at least had it right when he said labels are tools, in my opinion. Use them if they fix or better something, like your self-worth or you validation or how you like to express yourself, and put the
  12. I'm so happy for you that you found us! It's stories like yours that remind me how lucky and grateful I am to have found the terms "aromantic" and "gray-aromantic" in ninth grade. Better to be a *special snowflake* in high school than feeling lost and confused with unforgiving consequences as an adult. We've always existed. There's plenty of adults out there like me, who have lived their whole lives feeling like me. We've just never known it until the internet birthed forums like these. Now we have vocabulary to describe ourselves, a community, and silly in-jokes like the ice cream g
  13. Well, I'm a teen on this site, and I know there are a lot of other ones here too.
  14. Actually, you know, you and your community are fetishizing mlm relationships. Mlm are tired of being treated this way by mostly teenage girls and ready for y'all to knock it off. I can find some quotes breaking this down into better detail if you want, but I had to get it out
  15. Hi, Courtney! I turned seventeen this February 15th (2018) so it doesn't take much to transport myself into the mindset of my sixteen-year-old self. Maybe some of the other people who responded are about your age too. I must admit I didn't actually check. As a lot of people have already outlined, the aromantic spectrum and the asexual spectrum are two different spectrums! You can be allosexual (the opposite of asexual) and aromantic at the same time. It sounds like those might be some labels that fit you, if you are looking for labels. In addition to what others have already posted h
