ilse Posted July 18, 2021 Share Posted July 18, 2021 (edited) hello! found out about this site through tumblr and wanted to give it a shot. my name is ilse (trying out different names online), i'm a demigirl lesbian from mexico who's pondering being aro. my crushes have always been chosen by me, however i later on realized that a good majority of those crushes were due to comphet on my part. eitherway, i have never experienced true romantic attraction and always wondered if it was due to the fact that the women in my life just weren't my type. i first came across the term aromantic on tumblr around 2016/2017, but never gave it much thought since most of the aromantic stuff there involved despising romance, something which i don't resonate with (i consider myself both romance positive and romance favourable, i just simply don't feel the attraction or the "butterflies" i'm supposed to feel), or talked about being asexual as well (i don't feel a lot of sexual attraction but it's not quite something that's important to my identity) thus i strayed away from the label for some years. a few months ago i remembered hearing about this website and decided to do a little browsing since i felt like the label was starting to suit me more, finding out about alloaros and romance positive and romance favourable aros has helped me a lot with reflecting on my feelings. and so that's why i'm here, pleased to make your acquaintance ?♀️ Edited July 19, 2021 by ilse a little typos. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
