Strawberry Posted June 20, 2021 Share Posted June 20, 2021 Do you guys use dating apps to find like QPRs or just friends to talk to? I for the life of me don't know why, but every single time I download one, I freak out like 5 mins after setting up my profile and just delete everything.... The idea of talking to random people freaks me out. Like honestly even just posting on forums is new to me, but I'm more comfortable with it bc there's a sense on anonymity. I'm fine talking to new people in real life. No problem. I might be shy in some circumstances but usually if we find common ground I can hold a convo with anyone pretty well. Just on dating apps (I've tried tinder, Bumble, and Taimi), even if I specify I'm aro and just looking for friends to chat with, there's always an unspoken expectation that it'll evolve into something more despite me saying otherwise. Also how do you just... swipe... on people? I have no idea how to determine whether or not I'll "like" someone without actually talking to them first. The whole "judging on appearances" thing doesn't make a lick of sense to me because everyone looks like they could be nice??? Idk. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I just get over myself and stop overthinking things? Are there any other alternatives like aro Discord servers or whatever? I just want to meet people that I relate to bc I know 0 arospec people both irl or online since I'm new to the community. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
