Newbie (1/4)

  1. Does anyone know any aro tiktokers? I really can't seem to find them because they never pop up on my fyp, but I would love to see more.
  2. I know that I'm super late in replying, but I really hope you see this. I'm 17, but have been IDing as aro for around 3/4 years now. I think that especially with romantic attraction, people feel it at a very early age, so I definitely think you're not too young.
  3. Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland It's a YA fantasy novel about a girl who can look into people's souls. The main character sees a black door in every soul she visits and she decides to open it. The main character is asexual with STRONG aro vibes as well. It also features a character who realizes he is trans halfway through the book. It's dark, intriguing, and possibly the first YA fantasy novel that I've read without a romantic subplot. Highly recommend.
  4. Not sure if this is the right category to put this question in, but I wasn't sure where else to ask. I came across the phrase peach fuzz (when two people in a QPR pretend they're dating) today, and I'm very confused as to how to use it in a sentence. Is it "Him and I are peach fuzz" or "Him and I are peach fuzzing" or something else?????? I'm so confused.
  5. Honestly, I still don't know for sure whether I'm aromantic, but I've decided to label myself as such until proven different. I would just look at your past to try and figure it out. I just went back and thought, did I ever like someone enough to date them? Have I ever felt like I don't want to date or have other things I would rather do? That's what helped me. As for coming out, it's totally up to you. I'm out to my sisters and my school, but not to my parents. I don't ever plan on coming out to them either. Do what feels right to you
  6. Oh boy, I feel you. I'm also 17, and while I consider myself also asexual, I can totally understand your feelings about relationships. Right now, I'm trying to figure out whether it's cuz society expects me to have a relationship, or because I actually want one. Whatever you decide to label yourself as, just know you're not alone! I'm going through the same thing and it's really freakin hard, but I'm glad that I have this community and countless others on the internet. And in the end, it's ok to not use labels either! You wouldn't be less aro if you decide that maybe you don't want to identify with any specific microlabel. (wow, this post was a mess, sorry for the rambles)
  7. When I was younger, I didn't get crushes. I never really even realized that crushes were a big deal. I read romantic books a lot and I always expected that one day, I would date someone and fall in love because everyone feel in love sometimes. I never realized that I didn't get crushes like everyone else and it wasn't even a big deal until I found out about aromanticism. I even liked reading about romantic love and it's always felt like something that I would be able to when I got older. I didn't think I was broken or weird, I was just normal. But now that I've figured out that I'm aro, I feel so much more alienated than my peers. I keep having panic attacks about being aro and I'm not even sure if I want a relationship anymore. Even now, I don't face much arophobia, but I keep thinking that someone is going to tell me that I'm wrong. This post is a mess, but I hope that you sort of understand where I'm coming from.
  8. I knew I was aro at around 15, but I didn't accept it until recently, so I think that you're fine if you want to identify as aro now.
  9. Hi everyone, My name is Katya or Kat, I go by both, and my pronouns are she/her. I'm 17 and I recently figured out that I'm probably aromantic. But my problem is that every fiber of my being is against it. I don't really want to be aro because I still really want a relationship, but I'm not sure if that's because of amatonormativity or if I actually want one. I'm currently bouncing between the labels aromantic, frayromantic and cupioromantic. I'm also really scared of labeling myself as aromantic because I'm afraid that I'm too young to know, but I'm hoping that by using the term, I will get more comfortable with it. I stumbled across this website for a project, so I'm joining and we'll see where it goes
