  1. What? Is winged eyeliner considered a gay girl thing now? That's news to me. If anything I associate it more with straight girls. Clothes are clothes, man, wear what ya wanna. If wearing flannels is """appropriation""" now there's gonna be a lot of disgruntled Canadian men...
  2. I don't think so, personally. Hikikomori usually has more to do with mental health struggles, with Japan being a country where it's highly frowned upon to acknowledge mental health issues. It also generally includes a refusal to leave the house at all as much as possible, including not working, not going to school, not seeing friends, not going to the store, etc., none of which has anything to do with romance.
  3. I have read enough Fullmetal Alchemist to know immortality is a curse. No thank you
  4. I think the more pertinent question is, does the distinction matter to you? Which label do you want to use? Labels exist to serve our communication needs. Instead of focusing on what you could potentially be, try turning it around and focusing on what you want to tell other people.
  5. Yeah, um... That's pretty much how my friends and I act around each other. That's not necessarily a romantic signal, especially when aros are involved. If your relationship with this girl is not fulfilling your desires, that's understandable, but it's also not her problem. There are an endless amount of alloromantic fish in the sea, so to speak. If you seek a romantic partnership- And ESPECIALLY if you respect this girl as much as you claim to- Then the thing to do is to get to know someone who also desires a romantic partnership. NOT to project one onto someone who has explicitly told yo
  6. Who is to say you can't have an intimate sexual relationship without romance? Sure, they're harder to find, but it's not like it's illegal to bang a homie, ya know?
  7. Are you not affectionate with your friends? Do you not enjoy spending time around them?? I'm sorry to hear that... Romance is not a prerequisite to companionship or kindness. It might be worth examining your ideas about friendship and why you think x things have to be romantic. Also, speaking as an aromantic girl myself, there's so little information about aromanticism and it's such a highly stigmatized identity that like... It's not really something people identify with on a whim, you know? It takes a lot of research and a lot of self-reflection and a lot of courage for someone to say "Y
  8. I've never heard of it either. Is it a Tiktok thing?
  9. Um... I think you might be a little bit confused. This is a forum for people who primarily don't experience romantic attraction.
  10. Are you familiar with the concept of amatonormativity? It might be worth examining how that plays into your life. Though it is true that there are aros who have romantic relationships, it sounds like that’s not really what you want. The concept of romance as a “need” is something that’s so strongly pushed on us from such an early age that it’s not uncommon for aros to grow up really invested in it, only to do a complete 180 when they realize they don’t have to be. You might be going through that.
  11. Oh, yeah. For sure. This is something we talk about all the time.
  12. Right?? But you know, boo hoo no stands or whatever... Geez. Part 1 is a Victorian drama turned pulp adventure novel and I couldn't ask for anything better than that. Everybody's just cowards.
  13. Ah, a man of taste I see. Nobody ever appreciates Jonathan enough :(
  14. Luke Spiller. He's the only real life man who knows how to dress worth a damn. Guys think they're adventurous if they wear An Color on their clothes, fuck that, where are all the sequined shirts and tattoo chokers?
  15. What is anything but a complex cocktail of brain chemicals that compel us to do things?
