  1. I can't be sure, but if she's really accepting of LGBT+ identities, then she sounds like the kind of person who would be horrified to find out she had misstepped and was misidentifying you. You can try to look at it as "the siblings' responsibility" if that makes it easier, or you can talk about it with them if you're close. If none of you want kids nor want to adopt/foster, then that's kind of just how it has to be. Your mom can always foster if she really wants to feel like a grandparent, or she could volunteer/work elsewhere where kids are involved (I like the parks & rec departments).
  2. I agree with Erederyn. I am extremely lonely as well, but I'm trying to modify my thinking to "why does the world insist on me changing and not society?" But I absolutely feel everything you said. It sucks. I don't feel any close relationship with pretty much anyone, but I want to. I want someone to take care of me, someone I can feel for, but it's not been happening and it's possible it never will.

  4. Hey there, other newbie here! I agree with GhostyPeppers. I wanted to bring to light the identity of cupioromantic, which is the first label I assigned myself. When I saw that label's definition, I cried. "Cupioromantics have a desire to be in a romantic relationship, despite not feeling romantic attraction." I desperately want to be in a romantic relationship, I love reading slash fics that are heavy on comfortable romantic partnerships, but the only time someone I might have considered a possible partner said they had a crush on me, I shut down. It's obviously different for everybody, a
  5. Hey there, I'm new here, but I don't know any other aro people personally and am looking for a community that "gets it." Ready for my life drama of the past year? Long post is long, but I could really use some commiseration, advice, and/or insight if you're willing! So I went through all my life without ever having had any person confess to a crush on me. Then at the beginning of 2020, right before I turned 27, my best male friend - let's call him Adam - said he respected my identity, but to be more comfortable himself, he needed to tell me that he thought he had a crush on me.
