yeah, thats fine. lots of aros have different views on romance. 

Some people are disgusted by some romantic actions, some aren't

If yyou want to find other aros with a view on romance more similar to what you describe it might be worth looking for 'romance favourable' aros or maybe romance indifferent/neutral.

That depends on what you mean. I'm assuming you mean romance in books a/o movies. I don't particulary mind it, but if I were to list my top 10 favorite films it would be notably absent. Until recently I always assumed that was a guy thing, because that's the stereotype right? I'm not much for romance themed films (The Princess Bride being the one exception), I absolutely loathe romcoms, and I do like seeing romance themes parodied in comedy, like the "Virgin Alarm" scene in Spaceballs. I'm ok with it in movies when it's a part of the character arc and not a trope. In one of my favorite films The Last of the Mohicans, the attraction between Hawkeye and Cora is a pivotal point in the plot. And what would Star Wars be without Han and Leia?
