Some questions about being aromantic

Recommended Posts

Hey, so, a few months ago, i was able to feel romantic attraction normally, towards my waifus and husbandos, and could feel romance generally, but i suddenly lost all of it. It just left, i dont know how and why, but from that moment on i havent been able to feel romance or attraction in any way shape or form. And the thing is that im romance repulsed aswell! And the worst is that i really want to feel romantic attraction, but i cant. It sucks bpnot being able to simp romantically for someone when u really want to.

This sounds very weird, and yes, it is. I hate romance and cant feel it, yet at the same time i want to. What is this supposed to mean?

Ive had romantic crushes my whole life, why did it stop all of a sudden? I asked my sister, which knows a whole lot of gender-sexuality related stuff to a scientific level, she told me it might be an emotional reaction, but to what? "U may have forced yourself too much into it" but no one ever made me think that i need to have a crush or something, it always had happened on its own. 

I seriously have no idea what this is, if anyone has experienced something like this before, please share it and tell me what it means 💔

How many crushes have you had? It's likely just a period of not being attracted to anyone, which is pretty common. But I do understand hating romance yet longing for it haha. 

Not being romantically attracted to people yet wanting romance is called cupioromantic.

I identify as grayromantic as i've only ever had a crush one time (i'm 17)

Stress can impact romantic attraction and, well, this year has been stressful for everyone. So between that and the physical isolation, I honestly think your romantic attraction just vanished because you feel stressed and isolated. Maybe wait awhile until after you're out of this situation.
