  1. I have an account on AVEN. It's been mostly OK for me except I came across some people who thought that there's nothing wrong with 13 year olds watching hardcore bdsm porn. Oh and some feminists got offended when I tried to have a civil argument about feminism's flaws. I also got a warning post by an admin, unbelievable.
  2. Ever since I learned about what asexual and aromantic is I used to think my best friend was ace and aro as well like me. Boy was I wrong. A year ago she didn't like romantic movies or stories and now she's all over them. Now she's making sex jokes but thank goodness they're not graphic. She's also claimed to have crushes on several guys. It really hit me how much she's changed a few weeks ago. We were out with our other friends. Our other friend (let's call her X) brought her friend along who we had never met before and he was a guy. As we were walking back home on ou
  3. Just so we can get this out of the way, I cannot see myself being romantic with anyone, ever. That I am sure of. After a lot of thinking I realised that I don't like romantic movies because they make it hard to care about the characters or their romance. It's like all there is to these characters is their love for each other. So at least I got that settled. However I've been really confused about my feelings about real people being romantic. When I see anyone holding hands I think d'awwwww 😁. But when I see people kissing I go ewwww 😐. And when someone I know announces they have a
  4. I despise the term. It makes it seem that a very close platonic relationship between men is actually a romantic one and they just want to hide it. I wouldn't be surprised if it was coined by panicked people trying to deny that men could ever be so emotional like women. In their mind they thought it was gay and they thought everyone else saw it as gay so they made it up as a defense mechanism. Furthermore the term is another 'option' if you will for denying an actual romantic relationship between men. Fans and even show runners jump on the bromance bandwagon so that they don'
  5. So I've gotten a lot of ideas for a book and I'll begin writing it as soon as I finish with plot and character notes. The main theme of this book is going to be recovery from childhood trauma through friendship. Only now I'm considering upgrading it. At this point I should probably mention my two main characters are both male. I'm basically torn between making them best friends for life, in a qpr, or have them be romantic partners. I feel that even strong friendship isn't going to be enough for the things I want to be expressed between these characters. How
  6. I can name a few best worst movies. Foodfight, Ratatoing, The Little Panda Fighter, Where The Dead Go To Die. Give their reviews a watch you won't be disappointed.
  7. So I don't usually watch romance or horror movies but when I do, I don't even make it through half the movie because it's so hilariously bad. It's especially bad how they try to portray a 'romance' if you can even call it that. I forgot what this movie was called but the couple in question was actually being chased by a serial killer and they went to hide in a closet. Guess what happened just take a guess. Well it's the perfect time to passionately make out and grope each other of course! At least they got caught in the end My friend once told me of another hilarity. They were watc
  8. I know for a fact that most anti ace and Aro arguments stay on tumblr but I just get a little worried. Have asexuals or aromantics ever been kicked out of a pride parade before?
  9. I was just looking at the survey of this thread. How is not following any organised religion different from atheism? Someone care to explain?
  10. I'm aro ace, I've had a person relate my orientations to a lack of experience with the opposite gender. She thought that since I never hung around guys It was no surprise that I never felt anything towards them. Of course I know that it's just ridiculous.
  11. I'm an atheist living in a Christian town. I don't have a good relationship with my parents even though we live under the same roof. My dad's a Christian but he doesn't talk much about the topic. I'm pretty sure my mum's an atheist. We all go to church on Sundays to keep up appearances and because both sets of grandparents would hate it if we didn't. I think my grandma suspects that I'm an atheist but I'm certain it would shock her if I actually said the words. My best friend doesn't understand why I'm an atheist and keeps trying to convert me, so annoying! The worst experience I've had relat
  12. My prom wasn't anything special. The entire time I stuck with my best and only friend in the world who came in a suit. I made more of an effort to socialise with the rest of my classmates since it would be the last time some of us would see each other. But it didn't change the fact that they were always too loud, too boisterous and totally not our types. It was a bit scary cause my aro aceness was kinda obvious. A lot of people were kissing so we had to move a couple of times. We had people inquring why neother me or my friend had a date. On top of all that, before the prom both me
  13. I know this isn't really a problem but it's so darn annoying. Watching other girls squeal and giggle at clichéd, crappy, badly timed romantic subplots and asuming that you're silly for not liking them.
  14. I'm aromantic asexual, never had anything remotely close to sexual desire for someone. I find people aesthetically pleasing with no desire to date them. I think that people look so much better with clothes than without clothes. Even better in winter gear, coats and gloves are my jam. Seriously my attraction to a person significantly decreases if I see them shirtless or naked.
  15. Me too. Undiagnosed mental illnesses have caused me to fall into a depressive state. I've noticed that the one time I had an actual crush was before I had depression/anxiety. Either way I'm still aro ace, even if I didn't have the social skills of a potato I would still never want a sexual or romantic relationship with someome. Besides, mental illness is hard to recover from, some people never recover so there is no chance of their orientation ever changing. So regardless, people have to deal with it and accept all of you. They shouldn't hold on to the idea that maybe you'll change if you're m
