  1. There are a few by Ava Max that I think could work as aro songs. Not Your Barbie Girl is probably the most of an aro-relatable song, but So Am I is also relatable as it is about the experience of being different and My Way is about not conforming to a female role, which traditionally includes being partnered with and subservient to a man. Salt is a good one about doing well after a breakup which I know some people here like.
  2. I've definitely gotten the impression societal beliefs about romance are sexist, like the idea it should be men pursuing women and that men should pay for everything on dates while women are the more passive partner in pretty much all situations. With the level of importance of women in my life as all kinds of influences and all my close friends who have a binary gender, I sort of wonder now if that's a factor in my aromanticism as well as being related to one of the reasons I don't identify as a man. Definitely not all of it as I'm uncomfortable with romantic kissing and settings designed to be romantic, but it may be a factor.
  3. That seems a lot like me, I've never really been comfortable with formal dances and I've also been more comfortable with funerals than weddings in recent years. I also haven't been drawn to the idea of college parties, which may be good since lots of students at my college got suspended for them last year with COVID going on.
  4. I've recently been reconsidering my sexuality since being out as non-binary for a while. I thought I was a man before, mainly attracted to women, and thought I was demisexual. However, I'm starting to think it might be more that I was repressing most of my sexual feelings because of discomfort with cishet male sexual roles, especially in the #MeToo era. Since being out as non-binary, I think I can feel sexual attraction much more easily, though still feel uncomfortable with the idea of having a dominant masculine role in any actual sexual encounter but just don't feel like I automatically would since I'm non-binary and not a man.
  5. You become the richest person in the world and get that wish with the money you got from not paying employees enough, then this time the petition to not let you back onto Earth succeeds and you never get to come back. I wish it was easier to make friends.
  6. I go by they/them because it's the best-known gender-neutral pronoun and just feels easier than making up my own or using relatively unknown ones.
  7. You get implanted with a mind control device. Now someone else has total control of everything you do. I wish Donald Trump were in prison.
  8. You lose the ability to feel tired and so there is no warning when you need to go to sleep. Therefore you will just fall asleep in the middle of whatever you are doing even if it is in public at the time when you run out of energy, and feel wide awake until that moment so that you can't prepare for it. I wish I had faster internet.
  9. Kings and Queens - Ava Max (does talk about kings and queens like they are couples, but zero reference to romantic feelings and is about female power) Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield Just Like Fire - Pink Thunder - Imagine Dragons (Not sure if "Believer" also counts as feel-good but that's also an Imagine Dragons song not about romance) Katy Perry's Roar is a very upbeat song about escaping a romantic relationship. Since someone mentioned Fight Song but didn't remember the original artist, it's Rachel Platten.
  10. Done getting shots now, just need to wait for the one I got today to become a little more effective now.

  11. Not exactly an aromantic song, but I just realized through internet research that the song Gloria was originally a song expressing romantic love from a man to a woman, and I think it's really cool how Laura Branigan transformed it into something completely else, about mental health and talking to someone who seems to be going crazy in looking for love. I've been a fan of the song for a while and after listening to the earlier versions I still definitely like Laura Branigan's lyrics the best.
  12. Got my first shot of Pfizer yesterday, and I didn't go into anaphylactic shock.

  13. I definitely relate to this. I've known I was aromantic for a while, but had phases of thinking I was asexual as well and still am not sure exactly about my sexuality, whether I'm demi or gray or just regular gynesexual but turned off by dehumanization and the idea of random hookups.
  14. I'm offended that you made a post not about the one right above it in this thread.
  15. I feel that way a lot. I have one very good best friend but don't see her as much as before the pandemic and am alone a lot more of the time.
