  1. @Acecream in swedish ledig also means "not taken". So I wouldn't want to use that here 😄 About the term single, I don't use it for myself but I don't mind using it in forms of such if it comes up. I think solo is a better word. It sounds more permanent.

    That is totally depending on your circumstances. I recommend asking here for help on how to make a budget. https://www.reddit.com/r/personalfinance/
  3. You're right. It's more he's showing some tendencies. His relationships were all brief and we never saw any deeper feeling for him about them. He never even dated Rachel cause they both felt too weird about it.
  4. I'm thinking about dating platonically once the pandemic calms down. To create some online profile stating that I'm aromantic asexual and looking for friendships that are a bit outside what's considered normal platonic relationship. That include cuddling, maybe some kissing and emotional intimacy. Not necessarily a qpr because I don't want to be someone's "special someone". I won't consider that friendship better than my other ones. But I feel hesitant because it feels so personal putting it all out there in a public dating place. I don't normally talk in debt about my orientation to people wh
  5. How's your communication about relationship labels and such in general? When it's not about you. Can you talk to him about the concept of relationship talks among friends? Or maybe relationship anarchy. Maybe he has an idea that friendship is a very defined thing and outside that is romantic and sexual aspects he doesn't want.
  6. I think a lot of us have the experience of having fake crushes (either just for others or also for ourselves). If you still did it today, who would you choose? I would pick the actor Wes Chatham cause I think he's very good looking and he also seems like a thoughtful and interesting person.
  7. Welcome! Have some ice cream 🍦
  8. Welcome! In this forum people tend to give out ice cream. Since people eat ice cream after breakups. 🍦🍦
  9. I stil haven't fullt figured out my sexuality. I have decided that it's not that important though. I have a low libido and I'm fine with just abstaining from sexual activities. It just seems easier than to get into the murky waters of gray sexuality.
  10. I'm working on my third aromantic moments video and I want to include a scene with Joey from friends. Since he is clearly at least a bit in on the aromantic spectrum. But I have trouble thinking of a good scene that would show this. Most of them is more about how he has a lot of causal sex and I would like something that is a bit more about a disinterest in romantic relationships. Any suggestions?
  11. This would make a great board at the top of a wall. Not sure what it's called in English.
  12. I like that idea! And if we do really expensive weekend it works with your first suggestion too 😄

    Ways to be hopeful

    If you're into reading I recommend the book Feeling good by David Burns. It's about how to use CBT to affect your feelings and mood.
  14. What are aromantic and asexual called in your language? Or in some other language you know? In Swedish it's called aromantisk och asexuell. You could also share other a-spec related words.
  15. Let's celebrate all of them 😄 What would you do on a friendship day? Except make the greeting card companies rich?
