Guest Slowdowwwwwn Posted June 12, 2021 Share Posted June 12, 2021 I don't know if this is a common experience, but discovering I'm aromantic/asexual is something that is relativity new to me still and sometimes my brain is kind of astounded by it...it's like all the awkward pieces of my life and relationship to sex and dating make so much more sense now. But another part of me overthinks! And wonders if by choosing to identify as aromantic and asexual, I am influencing my own thoughts and actions to "bend" to what it "means" to be aroace (or at least my perceived definition of it). For example: I see romance on TV and think about how pointless it is and how much I lack understanding for romantic feelings. But then I overthink and wonder if I'm saying/feeling these things simply because I have finally realized "I'm aroace". Not sure if that makes much sense to people but I was wondering if you had any thoughts or could relate. It's preventing me from coming out to just about anyone because I'm worried I'm a total fraud about my identity. I really would like to share with my best friend and feel like I shouldn't.
