Hello all!


Recommended Posts

I'm Ira, in my 20s, from the United States. Pretty happy to be here since I've identified as aspec for a while, but only recently realised that I'm probably some kind of aromantic too and felt immediately relieved about a bunch of things in my personal life.

Getting into the details, I'd call myself an oriented aroace. I have a strong sensual and aesthetic attraction to other guys, which usually manifests in a ferocious urge to commit their most appealing qualities to paper. I'd say my asexual attraction most closely aligns with autochorissexuality (or aegosexuality, although my former Latin student brain throws a fit when I try to call it that). I've had exactly one relationship that didn't turn out so well, but thankfully, my ex-partner and I have remained close friends after a lot of work.

I think that's it. You may be wondering what my username means. "Gökotta" is a Swedish word meaning "the act of rising in the early morning to watch the birds or appreciate nature." I'm neither Swedish, nor have I been an early riser in quite some time, so I'm not sure why I picked that when I signed up, but there you go. Anyway, I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Hej! Thanks for the reference to my home land. Hope you'll like it here in the forums.

Thank you! I've dabbled in learning your language before — it's quite beautiful — but the pitch accent is very difficult for someone who hasn't grown up with it haha.
