Angrboda Posted April 15, 2022 Share Posted April 15, 2022 (edited) Okay, so I've heard a lot of people say that aros don't get crushes, but that got me thinking. I was under the impression that being aro mostly referred to the lack of romantic attraction (E.G. being in love & crap.) But isn't having a crush supposed to be quite different from being in love? I consider myself aro. I've never had romantic feelings or been in love, nor have I ever had any desire to. However, I have, on occasion, met or heard about a person & thought, "Hey, they're really interesting & we have some fun stuff in common." I was attracted to them felt kinda silly & exited at the thought of them. That sounds very much like what others seem to be describing when they speak of having a crush. Or does having a crush only count if you're specifically daydreaming about dating, giving flowers, using pet names, falling in love, & getting married? What do you guys think? How would you define a crush? Thoughts? Opinions? EDIT: Not sure if I'm explaining this very well.
