Ally to Aros Here Who Deeply Values Non-romantic relationships

Recommended Posts

So I'm an asexual who is not aromantic here to support aromantic people and to celebrate relationships that are not romantic with them. Not to mention criticize the overrated area that society has put romance in. It is messed up how friendships are not valued enough in culture.

One thing that helped me grow to understand this is growing up being taught the value of good friendships and only being surrounded by peers around my age of the gender that I am not attracted to on a romantic level. I knew few to no boys as a child and teen, but was surrounded by girls and developed very close friendships with quite a few of them. I had best friends over the years and I was heartbroken over when I lost them and still haven't gotten over all of them to this day. In college, I almost got into a QPR with the closest BFF I had in early college, but we went separate ways because she as a lesbian didn't want potential girlfriends to think that I was her girlfriend or that she liked me in any way other than platonic. I have a loving boyfriend now, but I don't see my relationships with my family members now or friends in the past as less than or not as important. I love my man very much, but he isn't the end all be all of my life or above all others in it.
