    YMBAI you just don't understand why it is so great to wear other person's hoodie. It propably has that other person's sweat in it! Yick!

     

    Women always talk about how men's hoodies have deep pockets and are so big and warm and comfortable... do they realize they can just go out and BUY men's hoodies? They don't have to steal them?

    But that's just what everyone does. To them it's not really any different to refusing a handshake and you don't even make actual contact between the mouth and face, just cheeks.

     

    I guess maybe I could get used to it if I lived there... but as is, it's just too close to kissing for me. I'm still glad I don't live there.

    So I'm studying abroad in France right now, and on the first day of my French class I was so visibly uncomfortable with the idea of the cheek-kiss-greeting-thing that's apparently a thing that people do here that the professor called me out on it. Nice. -_-


    Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope... and did I mention nope. 

     

    I am SO glad I don't live in a country (or even region, since it seems to be a thing in some regions of the US) where people greet each other with kisses. I realize it's not my place to judge their culture, but I wish people would ask before doing that. People in general should get consent before physical contact, unless they know the person and have already established that they like that type of physical contact. Also, it should be considered okay to decline physical contact, and not some social taboo.

  4. Years ago, someone was talking about a couple in the group. He said something like "I mean, I'm not jealous. I'm happy for them." That's when I realized that other people understood how they felt. Before that, I hadn't realized that EITHER of those reactions would be natural reactions to someone being in a relationship. I thought everyone was as confused about it as I was!

  5. It seems like something that could be used for an abusor to not let their partner have very close friends, though. I guess I don't really understand it because I don't have romantic feelings for people (and I don't have QPRs either). Where is the line? How do I, as someone not in a relationship, know if someone is emotionally cheating on their partner with me (other than if I know they're not telling their partner)? Or would that not be my responsibility?

    I don't understand it. It seems to me like the "emotional cheaters" are just friends. And the comments are about how close they are, but they still seem like they could just be friends to me. How are we aros supposed to have close friends who are in their own romantic relationships if this is "emotional cheating"?
