  1. Well, if an admod labels me as "pathologically trolling sensitive" there's no one I can report the admod to, so I guess I have to leave. Bye, all.
  2. R.I.P. Adam West, 88, the forever face of Batman. All Batman fans mourn you.

  3. Yet people are returning to such values after decades of shunning them. Shows you what just a few self-seeking, cynical hypocrites in the toxic-left establishment can do: cause the clock to turn back as the majority feel aggrieved and exploited.
  4. Please vote in this poll so I can see whether I don't belong here, either.
  5. I don't see the following as being on the aromantic spectrum: - "I'm eight and my boyfriend wants to kiss but kissing is gross, so I must be aromantic." "A guy wants me to be his girlfriend but I'm afraid of getting pregnant, so I must be aromantic.' "Every guy who wants me to be his girlfriend is unemployed or a druggie, and I don't have feelings for any of them, so I must be aromantic." 'I hate men so I must be aromantic."
  6. It pisses me off when people don't know that there's a difference between being an allo who has a need to be careful and go slow, and being on the aromantic spectrum, and start labeling themselves as aromantic when they just have a need to be careful and go slow. And I don't know whether the ToS permits me even to vent with that kind of sentence not directed at anybody on Arocalypse.
  7. That's a refreshingly positive take on a man flying solo. Typically being a bachelor into middle age is portrayed as a failing, but that's because those who run countires have an interest in sustaining the birth rate, and the values they promote are nationwide and can't take into account individual differences. Such individual differences do exist, and I'm glad that they are being recognized by means of solid research. And what the book says about those men doesn't surprise me. It's exactly how I would imagine happy bachelors to be. The one thing missing from your post is a number: what percentage of men fit this description. Would you mind providing that?
  8. Yes, but do you wear your sunglasses at night?
  9. I've deleted my post with regard to that. No reason to get the mods excited.
  10. LIfe is when dinner is an hour late because the mandatory cook is stuck in traffic.
  11. Welcome and enjoy your time here.
  12. My true problem is ocular cataracts. The left one is so bad that that eye sees only vague areas of light and dark. But, yeah, I've been nearsighed since I was a kid, and have worn glasses since then.
  13. I agree with that. I wasn't expressing an ethical or moral principle but referring to how people do things.
  14. On the other hand, many AVEN members have complained that, supposedly, allos care only about sex, not romance.
  15. It's true that aromantics are diverse enough that there's no guarantee you'd have anything in common with another aro or even get along with them, but at least they'd understand first-hand what being aro is like, so there would be an immediate level of comfort with them, however far that went or didn't go.
  16. After years of struggle in defining myself in terms of labels, I decided to reject any labels and just take life as it comes. Depending on what situation I find myself in, I'll do whatever I want to do as long as it's ethical and legal. So I consider myself as not having any gender identity, sexual orientation, or romantic orientation at all. Does anyone else take the same open-concept approach to their future behaviour, or do people prefer to stick to how they define themselves in advance?
  17. Most asexuals are romantic (and tend to have the standard romantic person's misconceptions about being aromantic). That's one reason Arocalypse is a necessity and not just a fun and frivolous thing (although fun and frivolous within the context of a serious purpose are also good).
  18. I have a tiny family consisting of only myself, my father and my younger brother, and we all live together. "Family events" are not really a thing for us, except for us usually eating dinner together at home. We largely have separate lives, although we do briefly talk from time to time and my father and brother have much more to do with each other than I do with either of them. I actually wish I could live alone, but that's currently not feasible. If I lived alone then we might have actual family events for the three of us, and those might mean something.
  19. I prefer brownies, but think ice cream is better than cake too. Welcome and enjoy your time here.
  20. I was six or seven years old, attending a small school in a small city in East Euroope still rebuilding after the Second World War. The school had normal classrooms and the gym was the courtyard, but there was a largish meeting room. One day, I'm given some schoolwork and am absorbed in it. Suddenly the teacher says my name, and I look up and realize that I'm the only kid still in my class. The teacher tells me to stand and leads me to the meeting room. She opens the door, and the lights in the room are dim, with music playing. All the pupils my age are dancing in pairs. The teacher leads me to one girl from my class, and arranges our bodies and arms in a tango pose. I feel the girl's cheek pressed against mine and shriek and dash out the door. An adult from the school catches up with me in the courtyard and leads me back to the class. Later, the other kids return to class, and the whole thing is never mentioned by anyone. This isn't a delusion. It really happened.
  21. The way to meet people is to have an interest and find people who share it with you.
