what would be your dream aromantic character?


Recommended Posts

One that actually uses the word "aromantic". That's it. The bar is on the fucking ground and everyone would rather spend their time tunneling under it than making good rep lol

I would love to see an outgoing, extroverted, confident and affectionate aro/ace character. I just see the stereotype that aro/ace people are introverted, overly serious... Some even seem like a robot or something. And I'm an opposite of those stereotypes (ENFP aroace guy here). When I came out as aroace some people were like "but you're a literal magnet for people, you're the life of the party!", "you seem too extroverted and opened about your feelings to be aroace", "are you serious? but you are so nice and affectionate", "but you're so talkative, funny and you even jokingly flirt with people" or "I would never guess that you're aroace... you're not innocent or shy like most of them". Comments like that are harming aspec people and make unhealthy stereotypes. Seeing an aro/ace character in media who denies all those stereotypes (or at least most of them) could help allos understand that those comments are wrong. Also, I would love to see an aroace character with a more outgoing personality so I can relate to them more.

I would absolutely love an older character discovering aromanticism. Someone who perhaps came to the term later and is now, around there 50s ish maybe, finding words to describe how they relate to romance.

I would love an entire world where just everyone is aro ace, no romance just a lot of adventures and cake. Make so many aro ace character all different and dimensional to make up for the decades without any representation. We could prove the world that you don’t need romance to make a good compelling book series just good writing.

I would like to see an a romantic sexual character represented in a way that shows no negative ,ay be and harmful stereotypes. Also maybe a character who isn’t out to lots of people! Just a few bffs.

I wanna see an energetic aroace who is out of the closet. I wanna see an aroace who loves life. I wanna see an aroace who shows all of the affection to their friends and family. One who isn't depicted as cold and one who isn't depicted as moody/unstable.

Someone who is extremely bubbly and cheerful, would go above and beyond for their friends, but honestly doesn't understand romance as a concept, saying things like:

"Isn't that just close friendship with more rules?"

"Isn't dating just hanging out but fancier and more stressful?"

"Did you just put your tongue into their mouth! Yuck! Why would you do that?"

"I don't understand why you're so sad about breaking up, can't you still be friends and stuff?"

"Just friends? What's just about  friendship?"

"Friend Zone? That sounds like an awesome place, can I move there?"

"Why cuddle with just one person?"

"(when asked if their best guy friend is their boyfriend) "Well... he's a boy and he's my friend sooooo... yeah?"

I have many more but I'll stop now.
