IM A GENERAL WHEEEEEEE Posted December 5, 2020 Share Posted December 5, 2020 Hello! I'd rather not take up much of your time, so I'll get to the point. I have been questioning my romantic orientation for a while, and as of recently, I've been heavily leaning towards aromantic. There are many reasons as to why I believe this (i.e: I dislike romance in media, I don't think I've ever had a crush (usually just squishes), I don't think I've ever felt butterflies in my stomach, etc.) And I have also realized that my perception of how I want the future to be has changed over the last few months, and even years. I have realized that instead of having a romantic partner in the future, I would be perfectly happy and content with a very close best friend, QPP, or maybe even a group of close friends. Looking back on my childhood, I don't recall feeling strongly for anyone in a romantic way, or at least not in the typical romantic way, if that makes sense. I can't remember feeling butterflies in my stomach when I was around my alleged "crush", and I don't remember feeling flush in front of them, either. In fact, I don't remember even fantasizing about real people until I was 12, and even then, I now think that the person I was fantasizing about was just someone whom I had an intense squish on. None of the things in my fantasizes were inherently romantic, which has led me to believe that I am aro. Honestly, I am still young, so I could just be going through a phase, but right now, aromantic seems plausible and fits very well. Any feedback on this matter would be nice, if you don't mind.
