  1. The Final Days of Sophie Scholl. This movie is a very heavy film, as it deals with resisting Nazis, and the ending is quite depressing, but this movie does have platonic love for family and friends but not romantic love. Home on the Range. This is an animated film that involves cows that are trying to save the farmland that they live on and attempt to do so by capturing a cowboy with excellent yodeling skills (who attempts to hypnotize the cows with his yodeling) because the reward for this outlaw cowboy is the same amount of money that they need to keep the farm from being sold or bidded
  2. Hey there Aro folks! Are there any people here who play either Animal Crossing for Gamecube or Animal Crossing for 3DS? I haven't gotten the newest edition yet. I'm a fan of just messing around in the Gamecube version, enjoying all my free NES games that I dug up from the ground.. in the 3DS one I just like getting analyzed by the mohawk shrink after I give him apples to eat. I wish going to the shrink/therapist (he doubles as a therapist in this game) were this easy in real life, IRL it seems to require things like insurance.. and money. Anyway, if you'd like to exchange pics for th
  3. Hey, I'm new also! Welcome to the forum. What's an EGL? I'm also struggling with not living a normal alloromantic life as well, didn't come to terms with that until recently.
  4. Wait is this related to the .hack series where people go online into a virtual world and defeat enemies, make friends, and participate in weird competitions? Also, there were some characters named Shugo and Rena.
  5. I wonder if there will be any aro comics in stuff like Marvel or DC comics.. though I do like fan art. Also, idk if anyone here reads Scandinavia and the World, but I suspect some of the country characters are aro too... if any of ya'll know about that webcomic.
  6. Hm, I am mostly pissed off by family and romance romcoms and movies that based both in North America and in other parts of the world, mainly because I see the femme or woman who is in a heterosexual, allosexual relationship in the TV series or movie playing some kind of damsel in distress, worrying about whether she/they are attractive enough, making sure the woman/femme is "conventionally attractive". In addition, there's the usual stuff of satisfying the male gaze, catering to the man's needs, not to mention that the people in the relationship never seem to have any kind of intellectual disc
  7. Where is the link? Is it in the Google Doc? And how often will these meetings happen?
  8. Not having to deal with toxic people who may be covert about their abusive tendencies or behavior and always be on your toes, thus never getting to enjoy the interaction. Also, not doing 'weird stuff' like falling in love, and them somehow rationalizing toxic and/or abusive behaviors as love. I think I'm so pessimistic, jaded, and misanthropic about humanity sometimes that idk if I could ever date in alloromantic manner due to the weird stuff that I've seen on dating sites and apps from friends. However, the one good thing about dating apps (specifically OkCupid)was that I met some aro people
  9. For me, I suppose it's the notion that autistic people lack self awareness? I guess some people conflate my inability to understand social cues (like how certain types of emotional closeness, mainly in the form of disclosing personal details between a male presenting person and a female can be perceived as romantic intent, not to mention that due to my cultural background and despite being read as "female" by society, many people are threatened by me for no good reason) to mean that I couldn't possibly know if I'm feeling romantic attraction to someone or not, because autistic people are only
  10. OMG, me too. I'm like this if I meet someone who is really talented at physics, engineering, or biology and seems to be very caring.. I'm like teach me about your secrets! It's not that weird since I can at least understand the mathematics of stuff in science to a pretty high level.. but I do get pretty intense about wanting to learn from people who are intellectually talented at science.. just like you do with wanting to learn about that person's interests and all that. In my head I even fantasize about cuddling them which is weird considering that I tend to want to do this with people I
  11. Virtual hugs to you! I can relate to this so much, especially as an autistic person who is also aro. I have the issues of living in a romance saturated world, but also having issues navigating social situations as well. I really hope you figure things out :) What I've done to deal with this is join a penpal website, join every forum that I can think of that's related to my interests, think about getting a dog, and going to groups on Meetup.com (many meetings are virtual) though i'm worried that doing all of this is a distraction from loneliness, but at least it's a coping mechanism, I su
  12. Ya, the reaction would be, so.. you're one of them serial monogamists.. huh? Though granted society does teach a lot of people when they are in throes of romantic feelings to just ignore such statements and dive into the relationship headfirst, perhaps (but not always) with the hope that you might be able to change the person if you love them enough (and no, it's not specific to one societally defined binary gender).
  13. Yeah, I'm going to look like weird with all of those rings on my finger. Are there any pics out there about whether it looks fashionable to have both rings?
  14. Hey everyone, I'm new to the Arocalypse forums! I heard about this place from some people on AVEN. I really wish we had a chat feature on here, but other than that I'm looking to make new friends and have a ton of nice discussions on here.
