first of all, it’s nice to find little pieces of my aromanticness that i love, i’m getting over a lot of internalised arophobia. second of all, i love that i can focus more on other things in my life without having to spend time looking for a romantic partner :)

This has been said multiple times and I love that this is a recurring theme, but I love that I am able to channel all of my love into my platonic and familial relationships, I think it makes them feel so much more special to me. I have so much love for my friends and family that it is overwhelming in the best way and that has always sustained me. Before I knew I was aro I always had this feeling that nothing was missing, in the sense that nothing was missing in not being in romantic relationships, there was no void to be filled. In time I realized I was aro and didn't want/couldn't experience that type of love anyway. Now I know that what I really want is to channel more of my love into familial and platonic relationships, the love I thought I would experience in romantic ones. Since realizing I was aro I have only felt closer to the people in my life and have only wanted to be more affectionate with them and then those relationships have only become more fulfilling.

This is going to be really short and not greatly explained, so I'd love if someone elaborated.

 

We question the fabric of our society, change what has been imposed since childhood, the idea of a romantic love for every person, which makes us so so valuable.  We question if love is distinctly sectioned (romantic, platonic) or if it's mergeable for others (people in QPR's).  And that's incredible.

So you're saying what makes us different also allows us to think outside the box.

I like that I can value time with my family and friends that much. Althought I'm most of the time an introvert person I still crave company a lot and can't stand being alone. I really enjoy doing everyday activities like watching TV or cooking together without talking a lot, lol.

I only recently came to terms with the fact that I'm aromantic. I love having this identity and ending a yearlong struggle to find it. I love the unique perspective it gives me on attraction and relationships in general.

Lots of food for me.

Dont have to eat things i dont like

Key lime pie only for me

All coffee for me ^^

Don't have to meet extended family and be awkward

Cheap vacations and one day planning at most

Can hang more with friends

Basically not having to take care of someone thats not me.

I dont take usual bs when ppl tell me they where late. Your partner doesnt work for you nor are you tied to them, be on time or dont come at all.

^ me only thinking on partner related stuff but is 2am and insomnia is annoying

Can speak my mind, if i want something I do it or get it.

No romance triangles (based on geometry at least one is queer if we are attracted to each other.)

Romantic movies now are comedy

I enjoy horror movies more since few romance when someone is following you with an axe

I love not having to worry about hurting people when I feel some sort of attraction towards them (context: before I knew I was aro, I've been in relationships because that's what I thought I should do in that situation, and ended up hurting someone that was really close to me because I couldn't get myself to like them romantically, even though I tried. After that incident, each time I had a squish, or just the desire to be emotionally close to someone, I was afraid that I'm not feeling the same way they do, and that I'll just hurt them; knowing I'm aro allowed me to define what I actually feel and want, so that issue is not there anymore)
 

Not trying to be mean to allos, but I feel that platonic love is deeper, in a sense, as it doesn't revolve around what's expected by society, it's not possesive, and can't turn into hate; but it can still be intense. I love that I can love my close friends with all my heart, without having to worry about all the complications of romantic relationships.

I like not having to worry about crushing on people who are bad for me or falling in love with someone I shouldn't. I squish on a few of my teachers/ instructors, and from what I hear from other people at school having a crush on them seems much harder to deal with than having a squish.

I just enjoy being friends with people without having to worry that I'm gonna fall in love or anything.

Also this-

Realizing I'm aroace opened a whole new perspective on relationships and life in general for me. There is so much more out there than just love.
