What kinds of romantic things bother you & which ones aren't so bad?

I always hear my fellow aros say that they have no desire for romantically coded activities, but what that means seems to varry quite a bit. Some saying that dating & marriage is fine, just so long as they don't have to kiss, others saying that kissing isn't all that bad but holding hands, cuddling, & using pet names is out of the question. How do you feel about the different aspects of romance? What sounds good? What are some things you might tolerate? What are the hard passes?

i would like to have a significant other. or several ones like a friend group so if i wasnt aro i might be polyamorous

i love to cuddle and hug. perhaps kisses on the forehead and cheeks but thats all the romantic shit i can tolerate. heck! cuddles and hugs aint even inherently romantic

I like kissing, but I prefer kissing strangers. I like physical touch generally but it seems that is more often connected to sex than romance.

In terms of romantic activities there's not much of it I enjoy. I like to go on dates with people and talk about personal topics but that's not inherently romantic.

I hate kissing with a passion, but cuddles and hugs are literally the best. Having a SO myself (qpr), I'm comfortable with it as long as it doesn't get put in the context of romance (like when their friends ship me with zem). Then it gets gross. I have a weird relationship with pet names. They're bad in theory, but I liked them this one time, so idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .

Also platonic dates are where it's at!!
