  1. I've done a lot of third, fifth and seventh wheeling with my main group of friends - three couples, until very recently. It might be a bit different for me, since we're all individually friends, I'm not just friends with one half of the couple, but for the first few years I felt pretty constantly out of place. I remember it being very different hanging out with couples in high school, compared to as adults - I think as we got older, everyone got more comfortable in not always having to make sure they weren't 'excluding' their partners by hanging out individually with others. I thi
  2. Me too! Or I thought maybe I was just too shy to want to approach anyone who wasn't already a friend. (never quite managed to justify to myself how my friends liking me was also not okay)
  3. The found family trope is the quickest way to get me invested in any media, it's always been something I've wished would happen for me. I'd love to live with certain close friends. My current housemate and I don't really interact with each other. I was meant to move in with two close friends, but their circumstances changed and they couldn't move anymore.

  6. Hi everyone! My name is Lucy, I'm 24, from Melbourne, Australia, and I'm aro ace. I've known I was ace for six or so years, but knowing I'm aro only really clicked for me about three years ago? Figuring that one out finally was a relief, made my teen years make infinitely more sense - though it would have been nice to not figure it out in the middle of a first date with a nice person I found this forum about three weeks ago, and it's taken about that much time for me to overcome my new-communities shyness and introduce myself. Literally all of my IRL friends are romanti
