Arden Posted December 22, 2022 Share Posted December 22, 2022 Due to immense grappling social anxiety I really don't usually do forums but I recently discovered I'm aromantic and asexual (aroace), and tbh I'm just chilling with that revelation. Basically, how it came is that I really really like someone, but it's not your traditional 'oh i want to shag her' nor your 'i want to date her' kind of situation, but I really am just fond of her. I've always found dates to be extremely exhaustive, like why should I have to consider every type of meeting with someone I like romantic? I'm also asexual, that was the first thing I discovered, and if you asked me a couple years ago if I was aromantic I would've cackled in your face but turns out, you don't need to be a heartless bastard to be aromantic. Yippee for me ig. Yeah, stereotypes of aromantic people is also what I'm keenly looking to overcome. The idea that you 'need to be innocent and sweet' or 'heartless and psychopathic'. And the idea you can't get into a relationship 'cough cough queer platonic relationship cough cough'. I've always had an issue because I consider myself moderately outgoing, but turns out I must be this meek and modest person to be aromantic and asexual. Well boohoo, I still dress like a total slut. I'm sort of looking to also find out about people who have been aromantic for ages, like older people. How does it integrate in society? How does it get when you're older? Like old old age? What to look out for etc. I could really do with that advice. So yeah, that's basically it. That's moi :))) 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
