Marv Posted August 27, 2022 Share Posted August 27, 2022 Hi y'all, I don't know if I count as somewhere on the aro spectrum or if it is merely something related to some other issues? To explain: I have only felt what I might consider romantic attraction twice in my life, maybe three times (aside from a few things I thought were that but were just wanting to be friends/ect). The thing is, I also have a hard time feeling things towards people anyways as friends or otherwise. I like the idea of romance and dating, but I get places and the attraction just isn't there towards anyone (save those two examples, both of whom were/are close friends that I care/cared more about the friendship than anything). Recently I started going to therapy and my therapist said something about my childhood apparently being pretty much in aggressive environments (at schools and camps, I won't go into detail but because of it I have some fairly severe anxiety). So I am not sure if I actually am somewhere on the aromantic spectrum or I just have issues connecting to people because of these issues. Any advice? I do plan on talking about this more in therapy as well (also I know being aromantic isn't something that needs to be fixed, I just don't know for myself) Thanks :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
