  1. I actually think I'd prefer black and green rings. It stands out. I've never been very fond of white anything as far as jewelry and clothing is concerned either, so the color really doesn't resonate with me at all. I also want it to mean something to me, as well as being a signal to other aro people, though, and I feel black and green is the way to go for me. A simple band probably, I'm not too picky. I did find this, and I really like it. The green isn't too overpowering, but it definitely adds some character to the black.
  2. I like hugs, I'll tolerate cuddling for a short time, but kissing is where I draw the line. A simple kiss on the cheek from a family member or something is okay, but anything remotely near the lips, no. Get away from me
  3. Asexual definitely, but I'm not sex repulsed. I just literally don't care at all about it, and I'm obviously not sexually attracted by anyone. I'm pretty romance repulsed, but sex is just there as far as I'm concerned.
  4. I've told my family and friends, and my parents just avoid the issue, and never bring it up, which is perfectly fine by me. All I ask is that they respect my orientation. I don't really care if they fully understand it, to be honest. My siblings try harder than my parents though, which I'm very grateful about. I've spent a good majority of my life looking after my parents instead of the reverse, so I've never felt a particularly strong bond with them. I have to assume that's why I don't really care if they ignore its existence. My siblings thouigh, are very important to me. They've been wonderful about it. After the initial explanations and coming out were out of the way, they never tried to make me feel uncomfortable, or singled out for it. Each of my siblings also already have a child, so there's no real pressure on me for more grandchildren. I'm the middle child so it's easy for me to fall through the crack sin that respect
  5. My answer to this is a resounding no. I don't know if it's because romance and children are so often associated with each other or what, but the idea of it makes me nauseous. I love being an aunt: I have two nephews, but I get to send them home at the end of the day for their parents to deal with
  6. I guess it would be how generally unrelatable everyone I meet is in terms of romantic and sexual orientation. They'll be talking about how happy they are in their marriages, and with their kids, when even the thought of either of those things in my life literally makes me nauseous. And then when I try to explain that to other people, they just tell me I'll find 'the one' some day, and I have to struggle not to roll my eyes before I walk away.
  7. Hmm, interesting topic :). Let's see... I love reading about fictional romance, and 'shipping' people together. I also don't experience squishes. I'm so aromantic, even the idea of a QPR makes me distinctly uncomfortable, but I live with my best friend, who is grey-romantic, and we've pretty much decided to spend our lives together, so I guess it's all a matter of perspective, isn't it? Once I discovered I was aromantic, it really wasn't difficult to come out of the closet to others at all. It remains extremely frustrating to explain it, but actually admitting that I am aro ace is a simple matter. They're just not going to have any idea what I'm talking about most of the time. Like others here, I also suffer from mental illness. While I don't necessarily think that makes anyone a 'bad' aromantic, I can definitey relate. I take medication to help regulate my extreme anxiety and negative thoughts.
  8. I'm out to my important family and friends, and while they may not fully understand it, they do respect that it's who I am, and my life to live as I choose. I live with my best friend though, who is homosexual, and gray romantic, and we are attached at the hip, so honestly, a good majority of both of our families just think we're together, which I'm fine with. I may not be capable of that type of romantic love, but I do love her in the best way I can imagine. It doesn't matter to me how others view it. My siblings and best friends have been particularly supportive. I'm so grateful for them. I'm proud of my orientation, but it is a little difficult to just bring up in conversation with people I've just met. They'll be talking about having kids and getting married and I'm just like, "LOL, no."
  9. I do, but only on occassion. The novelty sort of wore off after my very early twenties, and now it's just something that's fun maybe a couple of times a year, and when I do, it's a few drinks, nothing more. It affects my medication badly now as well, so there's that to think about.
  10. Hi there, happy to be here. I'm a member of AVEN also, but it's kind of nice to have somewhere more geared toward aromanticism. Not that I'm trying to descriminate or put up a proverbial divider between aromantics and asexuals, because I'm not. Wouldn't make sense, seeing as I happen to be both. It's just that I see people talking about asexual people much more than aromanticism on a global scale, so this is nice :). Nice to meet all of you though, regardless! I look forward to talking with you!
