  1. Guys I just found an awesome short film about being aroace and queerplatonic relationships that I think you should check out. It’s pretty good.
  2. Heyo, here's yet another new Discord link. Wish there was a better way to do this.
  3. PSA: Don’t let society tell you that there’s a wrong way to love. If you are all happy with the arrangements put into place, don’t let society tell you that your love is wrong or inferior. Even if it’s not even close to the way movies and books say it should feel, and having a relationship like that grosses you out. Love is love. 💛

  4. Or, is the way people write about it a hyperbole? Because it sure as heck sounds like it. Is it really so strong that you feel compelled to obsess over that person (which doesn't seem healthy) and seemingly make everyone else in your life second best? I'm sorry if I come off as negative here but I'm scared that all my friends will leave me for a partner, and then I'll be alone since I don't want/barely understand that kind of relationship.
  5. No, thank goodness. and if it ever does, I won’t hesitate to be blunt about my lack of interest. I don’t consider myself to be a mean person by nature, but sometimes it’s the only way to get them to leave you the heck alone.
  6. Hey everybody. I’m curious if anyone else has ever experienced this. Well I mean i’m pretty sure there’s at least one person out there who has, but I’d still like to have a discussion about this. So like I know there are aros out there who are oblivious as heck of romantic intentions, and I was too at one point, the first guy who had (or at least admitted that he had) a crush on me didn’t seem to make any advances (or what I would categorize in my allopedia as advances) until he flat out told me that he had a crush on me. And rather than feeling happy like I thought I should, instead I felt uncomfortable and kinda betrayed, but that’s a story for another time. thing is, ever since then, especially when I[m on my period and my emotions are high, I always read way deeper into every interaction I have with people near my age, but mostly with boys because heteronormativity am I right? I find myself thinking stuff like: Oh no, did he offer to help because he has feelings for me, whatever that means? Or He’s been talking to me an awful lot, what if… please no! And it’s exhausting because I wish that I could just go on innocently being friends with people, but I really have a bad habit of thinking deeply into every little thing. Helpful in English class, not so much in real life, unfortunately.
  7. How do you mention someone on here? I've tried typing @ and their username but that doesn't work. I'm using a screenreader so that might have something to do with it, but if anyone could give me advice I'd really appreciate it.
  8. True! Merida is an arrowace icon! tbpm still feels like a kid @BlueKumul Are we allowed to go more than once?
  9. So I randomly thought up this lovesong for queerplatonic partners. Since I can only write the lyrics for now I'll do so, then share the audio of me singing it so you will know the mellody when I figure out a good way to do it. But for now, here are the lyrics: Your Something Verse 1: I never want to be your one and only, Not interested in fulfilling your every need, I simply want to be there when you get lonely, A unique love growing from a custom made seed. Chorus: I wanna be your something. Don't wanna be your everything, Let me be your something, A unique love that flies on custom wings. I wanna be your something, Cuz we both know one size does not fit all, Let me be your something. I'll give you space, but lift you when you fall. That's all I have for now, I might think up more verses, we'll see. Also if anyone knows of a good place to upload the audio so I can link it here, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks! ☺️
  10. Someone who is extremely bubbly and cheerful, would go above and beyond for their friends, but honestly doesn't understand romance as a concept, saying things like: "Isn't that just close friendship with more rules?" "Isn't dating just hanging out but fancier and more stressful?" "Did you just put your tongue into their mouth! Yuck! Why would you do that?" "I don't understand why you're so sad about breaking up, can't you still be friends and stuff?" "Just friends? What's just about friendship?" "Friend Zone? That sounds like an awesome place, can I move there?" "Why cuddle with just one person?" "(when asked if their best guy friend is their boyfriend) "Well... he's a boy and he's my friend sooooo... yeah?" I have many more but I'll stop now. No way, you're ENFP too? !!!
  11. I once saw a YouTube video about where straight people were the ones who needed to come out. I remembered that video just now, and had a thought: what if the world was like that, but with allos? What if most people were aroace, and the allos were the 1%? We’d definitely have more quality stories, that’s for sure, but other than that… What sort of funny scenarios would happen? What struggles would they face? How would things be different?
  12. It’s this stupid amatonormativity this society’s got going on, I think. I desperately crave a QPP(s) but since that’s not a relationship that people commonly pursue, it’s not as simple as getting a squish and pursuing it. I’m actually really freaking scared of getting a squish, because i know that statistically that person will most likely be allo. And since allos don’t operate the same way as I do, the closest they’ll probably ever feel towards me would be a crush. And since I can’t give them what they want/need since I don’t even know what it is, then I can’t be their special person which would be heartbreaking for me. there’s a part of me, a part that I know is not true but persists anyway, that says that this is my fault. That I brought this on myself for wanting something so specific, for needing it. And it hurts because I don’t want to end up being alone for the rest of my life, but i also don’t want to do things that make me uncomfortable, that wouldn’t be right.
  13. I've never rollplayed before and would love to try! I'd love it even more if I could find a fellow aspec to do it with. RP is allowed on this site, right? In Arcade, I'm guessing.
    If it is, the scenario I was thinking of is that Character A is in a relationship with Character B, but discovers that they are aro and then needs to come out to Character B. I'd prefer fandom based like maybe Harry Potter, but if you wanna try it tell me a fandom/characters you're interested in and we can try and make it happen!

  14. Hi. So I was wondering is there a way to reply directly to someone's posts? Like I think that there's mentioning since I think I've seen that around the site, but as far as replying goes the most I could see was quoting. IDK, I just wish I could at least follow a post and see only stuff that people reply to me instead of everything.
  15. I'm so happy! I finally figured out how to write status updates! For some reason the option was only showing up on my phone and not my iPad? Probably cause I'm using voiceover but meh...
    I'm just glad I finally figured it out. Having status updates be an option you can toggle seems a bit odd to me but I'm sure the devs have their reasons.

  16. Hi. So while I was browsing the site, i saw that there’s like, a latest status updates section or something? But for some odd reason, there doesn’t seem to be an option to post one myself. 😕
  17. I just sent them an email. Hope they reply soon.
  18. Oh my gosh! Thank you so much, you are a life saverer!
  19. If this is the wrong place to ask this, then I apologize. But there's this site called platonic.partners for aspec people to meet each other and find friends/(of course) platonic partners. And I really want to join because I think I'd get a lot of benefit out of it, but whenever I go to the register page it says that it can't be found. And I can't seem to find a way to contact the dev about this problem. So if anyone has some suggestions I'd love to know. Thanks in advance.
  20. Every morning in my english class we do this thing where the teacher asks us a question (things like what's the best compliment you've ever received, who's the most important person in your life etc) and then we get to ask him a question. This time it was something very simple and quite cliche (seriously Mr. Pait you're an english teacher you're supposed to be creative) what did you do this weekend? I don't remember very many of the stories, mostly because I was still half asleep since this was my first class of the day, but one story really struck me. Basically this guy was at work and saw his female friend and wanted to say hi, but didn't because her boyfriend was with her. Like, wha? 😮 Even more shockingly was that I seemed to be the only one who finds this weird! Even the teacher agreed that he did the right thing! Are you seriously telling me that once you succumb to the odd human custom of of a romantic relationship you're not even supposed to talk to members of the opposite sex? For hetero relationships anyway? Seriously, allos? Seriously? I mean come on, this cannotbe healthy! Please tell me that I am not the only one freaked out about this!
