Interest in Google Meet Aromantic Socials


Recommended Posts

I think I've made a mistake and didn't schedule the meet tomorrow, I certainly didn't on the Facebook group! I thought I'd scheduled it but if this is news to people here it might be too late to do so!! I also thought I said 12noon BST on the topic of family but I think I only spoke about it on a thread in the Facebook group ūüėē. It looks like here I said 1pm! If you were planning on going let me know?

Yes, sorry! We're still discussing topics if you'd like to get involved? You would be more than welcome if you can make it. I usually check the Google meet link still works nearer the time.

What about the topic "Aro pride":

Do you feel aro pride? Is this something you demonstrate?

Are you out/how out are you? Do you wish you could be more out?

I thought it having been pride month last month (only a week or so late!ūü§£)

It'll be Sunday 9th July 2023 at 7pm BST.

What about 20th or 27th August? Or I could do 3rd September? We're due to do a 1pm BST meet unless there's a serious preference for a 7pm BST time again? Elin suggested a podcast on the Facebook page if that's of interest to everyone, I'll try to get the link. But first, which day is best for people?

Hey, any room for one more person?

Yes, sure! Where about are you from so we can consider you with regards to timezones? Those dates mentioned aren't any good for some of our regulars anyway, so we're still discussing dates for the next one. We aim for once a month but that aim is more for me to ensure I actually arrange something on occasion! We usually choose a Sunday (or weekend day) to try and help with timezone differences. What's your availability for September weekends?

My timezone is EST. Weekends are pretty open, so irdc when yall meet, I will 99% be able to make it work. If I'm going to be staying up (which I would) I prefer Saturday or Friday nights though, not Sunday nights

You are 5 hours behind me then so no worries about staying up at night as I'll be fast asleep! I'll see what the others say also (I organise on both here and Facebook).

The next online discussion meet is Sunday 17th September, 7PM (BST). Topic TBC

Any suggestions for the topic? Is there anything you'd particularly like to discuss?

I will check that the link still works at meet.google.com/qum-mmnd-xkw nearer the date.

nice.

as for topic nothing much on my in particular but there are a couple of topics on the old ideas doc that i think might be interesting

Intersection with gender identity

Intersection with relationship anarchy
What aro resources do we need? 

any of those would be interesting to me. the last one probably is the one i have more to say than others but perhaps try to stick one of these subjects in over the next few months.

If we're talking about intersection, intersection with sexuality is certainly big too. Asexual and allosexual aros are gonna have wildly different experiences being aro, gay, bi, lesbian and straight aros will vary between one another too

Hi, I will need to rearrange this unfortunately, unless you are happy to meet without me? If you want me to rearrange it the options are 6:30PM Sunday 24th (I could also do Saturday that weekend), or Sunday 1st again around 6:30/7ish (all times UK). I'm aware I still need to choose a topic also.

I like these suggestions. Maybe intersection and resources as a topic.

We must be well overdue to have a meet! Give me some availabilities for the next month or so of Saturdays and Sundays?
Also, I was recently sent this article https://www.verywellmind.com/can-the-five-love-languages-help-your-relationship-4783538 and even though I find the emphasis on romantic relationships frustrating, I thought it might be a good topic for discussion from an aromantic perspective and how it impacts all our relationships generally if at all. The article briefly speaks about the topic in relation to relationships with family members and colleagues etc. Frustrating that it's only briefly but I suppose take what we can!

Thoughts on this topic idea and dates/times?

We're probably due to schedule another meet sometime, but I suspect January might be quieter in most people's calendars than December? I also think it's a tradition now for us to have a games/ice breaker/chilled chat once a year? So if you give possible dates/availabilities we'll go from there? And if anyone is good at hosting online games let me know!
