Mell Posted August 2, 2021 Share Posted August 2, 2021 Hi everyone! I am 22, nonbinary, and identified as queer/eventually a lesbian for some time and while I still identify with those labels in some ways I am thinking I am likely aromantic and possibly asexual. It is very confusing because I feel very much in a grey area in terms of sexuality and romance. I have had serious crushes on people and felt strong sexual attraction, but the idea of attraction being reciprocated, especially romantic attraction, makes me very uncomfortable and makes the attraction I felt completely fade away. I found the term "lithromantic" and I am not sure if any of you identify with that but I think it fits for me. I have questioned many times whether this feeling could be due to avoidant attachment or fear of intimacy, but I am very close and secure with friends and family so don't think that's the case. Lately I've been feeling very scared and lonely about likely being aro and have had a hard time bringing it up to talk about with friends, so if anyone relates to this or wants to talk about it I would love that :) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
