Other people have already said this, but I feel like being aromantic allows me to focus on aspects of life other than romance. People seem to be really preoccupied with finding a partner, and I'm a glad that I don't need to worry about that.

I also sort of feel like it lets me appreciate my non-romantic relationships a bit more. It feels like others tend to prioritize romantic relationships over friendships, and stop paying attention to their friends for the sake of romance. Or maybe that's just me...

For me it's the simple fact that I don't have to worry about falling in love like so many other people, because I'd say at least 80% of the people I know are in a relationship or have a crush on someone, and I can just focus on my algebra and poetry and Shakespeare

Basically, I can do whatever the heck I want without having to worry about "oh what would my crush/partner think about this" or whatever allos think. For me, my aromanticism helps me be free from the amatonormative standards of society because that's one set of rules that I'll never be able to follow, and that's powerful.

I love not feeling the need to dedicate myself to somebody, instead i can dedicate myself to my own happiness. I love being free, not being behind the bars of romantic relationships. I don't know why I often visualise it as a prison, but thinking about having a relationship makes me think of having to drop everything for them and leaving my career, my family, my friends, my dreams because of one person. It happens sometimes in real life, even if it's a happy relationship.

I love that friendships feel so much closer, being aro and when you find someone who is just absolutely amazing at understanding that, you get even closer and you feel so comfortable and safe to be around them and that feeling is just so great.

I love that our community is there for each other. It means being aromantic has a deeper meaning, you can connect with people instantly. All the aromantic people I have met so far have been so supportive. Especially this forum group, everyone here I've met so far, I will forever be in your debt for making me feel so so welcomed and understood, it's like I've finally found people who actually get everything and have answers and it's made living such a happier thing knowing that there are people here and that there is so much support. 

I love deciding my own future.

I like the fact I don't have to be what society tells me I have to be like getting into a romantic relationship and focus on my friends instead.

Guest Hi, I’m bi & grayromantic

I’ve just recently found out I was grayromantic as well as being bisexual and I’m literally freaked out over the aromantic part. I wish I wasn’t aromantic, but there’s nothing I can do to change that… 😖

does anybody have any advice on self-acceptance?
