Arom GUy Posted February 28, 2021 Share Posted February 28, 2021 I did post a topic in another forum which guided me to here and how grateful I am to said person. Context so ive been dating over the past 16 years some long relationships some short and every relationship I get into I end up wanting to run for the hills or feel trapped and don't feel myself. I have always put it down to it being the wrong person and when I meet the right one I wont feel like this. I've done romantic things for people while in those relationships but not because I have the feelings to match the action but because I thought they would like it. I've always felt more comfortable with FOB arrangement forgive the crude term. Fast forward to this week I see a friend of myn post on social media about aromantic awareness week. I think ooo whats that (she always posts interesting topics) and I google it and start reading. First article read and I'm like ok this is sounding very familiar to me. I message her and go how did you know and she explains to me that it not experiencing any romantic attraction for others. It like a light has been switched on in my head and I feel like a weight has been lifted. I've read two threads here and i can relate to every comment that has been typed. It all resonates with me I don't feel broken anymore. I'm happy that I finally understand and can say that I'm an aromantic hetrosexual. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
