Warhawk Posted August 17, 2021 Share Posted August 17, 2021 (edited) Hey there, I'm Warhawk, but I also just like to go by Hawk online. I always describe myself as someone who 'likes birds, fantasy, and heavy fuckin' metal.' I've been identifying as Aro for a while, but I hadn't been around many other very aro spaces. I'm sex positive, but to be honest, sometimes it feels like as an ace, you're expected to be some sort of 'ace, but happily in a 100% innocent romantic relationship'. The idea that we should fit into a romantic, or sexual norm despite the differences of who we are. Note that I'm not at all knocking aces like this, I love all a-specs, just that it feels like what people expect of you to be sometimes. I've never really been interested in a romantic relationship. I get lonely, I wouldn't mind a life partner, but whenever the romantic or sexual baggage began to appear, it really started to put me off a lot. Some people like to think my identity somehow makes me more emotionally mature or smarter than others since I'm 'not driven by attraction or lust', but I always hated that as well. Just cause I take being lonely really well, and don't want a romantic relationship, doesn't mean I'm particularly special, and whatnot. Similarly, my own self-doubt and depression can make me feel like I'm just some loser in denial, who's never tried. Anyways, I'm glad to find so many other people that are aros like me, always good company. A bit more about me, I enjoy writing, and wish to be an author one day, but professionally I'm a student studying geography. I love heavy metal, especially extreme forms of metal. I'm a very avid birder as well, always trying to improve my bird photography. Nice to meet you all!
