Guest veryconfused Posted May 4, 2022 Share Posted May 4, 2022 So, hello! Sorry, I'm not quite sure where to start. I guess it can start with the fact that I don't really know what romance is. Or, more accurately, I do not know what romance is for myself. I have been in several relationships and currently am in one now. When I get a crush or like a person, I get this intense desire to spend time with them. To learn more about them and share things about myself. At first, I'll get nervous and flustered, but once I'm in a relationship, I feel okay. As though the butterflies I felt were out of nervousness than actual attraction. I find myself content with the way things were before we started dating and am not too interested in advancing things in what would be conventionally romantic. I have felt the urge to kiss someone before but it was more out of curiosity. It was not unpleasant and I wouldn't mind doing it on occasion, but it is not something I necessarily need. I am far more content with resting my shoulder on their head or just being close to them. I'm not entirely sure how it would be different from a romantic relationship and honestly, I'm not sure I want things to be different. The more I think about things changing, the more I want to hide. I just like spending time with the person I like and if it was the first time this was happening, I would have broken things off, saying I'd rather be friends. But this happens every time I am in a relationship. I'm just really confused... I don't want to lose our closeness or their affections, but at the same time I don't want to lead them on and give them false expectations only to disappoint them in the end.
