  1. My family is protestant so I've been to church a lot growing up, but it was never a huge part of my life. I don't believe in anything supernatural and I now identify as an atheist, something my family doesn't know about and don't need to know about (although I don't think my immediate family would mind particularly much). I don't hate religion, I just don't believe it to be the truth.
  2. I love languages! But I didn't start liking languages until after I stopped studying it in school, unfortunately. Swedish is my native language and I've also studied English and Spanish in school. Beyond that, I've studied a few more languages in my spare time for fun. The only language I'm studying actively right now (and the one I've come the furthest with) is Mandarin Chinese, but I've also tried to learn a few other languages such as Spanish and Polish. I'm not actively using Duolingo right now. The only language-learning app I'm using almost daily is ankidroid, a.k.a. anki for Android (a flashcard app).
  3. There hasn't been that many signs, although I sometimes used to talk with my sister about how annoying it is that such a large percentage of pop songs seem to be about love and romance. I don't mind romantic themes in media and/or works of fiction if it's done well. I might even enjoy it if it's done correctly. But I think few love songs stand out as being creative and interesting lyrics-wise and it's really played out. But I guess the biggest sign was the fact that I've never dated or asked anyone out or wanted to do so. There has been people I've wanted to spend time with, but just as friends. I didn't view the fact that I never wanted to date anyone as a problem. I had always been told that I would become interested in that stuff and find someone I liked eventually when I got older, so I didn't feel in a hurry to get into a relationship. I was certain that I would find the right person and form a happy family and stuff when I was ready to do so. It was not until a couple of years ago that I realized that I probably should be ready by now, but still wasn't, and that's when I started researching asexuality and aromanticism. Only one person has ever asked to be my girlfriend. I was taken by surprise and didn't know what to answer. I don't know how old I was, but I was definitely less than 10 so it was around the time when relationships wasn't so serious anyway. But that's the closest I've ever been to one. I don't even know how many romantic relationships the average person has had at my age. (Edit: Removed some outdated info)
  4. Greetings! I never actually posted in the welcome lounge on AVEN when I registered there in early 2016. But this time I will not repeat that mistake and introduce myself properly! Hello! I'm a 20 years old student from northern Sweden who's currently studying computer science at the local university. I enjoy doing creative stuff and learning new things. I currently have a few programming projects that I'm working on in my spare time and I'm also currently trying to learn Chinese for no apparent reason. In addition to all that, I also happen to be aromantic, something that I've come to realize relatively recently (about 2 years ago, just a few months before registering on AVEN). I'm only out as aro ace to one real life person, but I don't feel any dire need to tell anyone else unless someone asks. (In fact, the only reason I told that one person is because he asked me.) I don't know how active I'll be here, I have a lot of things to do at the moment, but it's hard to say what the future might hold. In any case, I don't think I have much more to add for the time being so I guess I'll see y'all around!
