Reindeermilk Posted April 5 Share Posted April 5 The only think that’s been keeping me from labeling myself as fully aro/ace is that I have experienced crushes in the past; three boys when I was between the ages 8 and 12. ~you don’t have to read this next paragraph 😅~ But to be specific I would describe them as more “I really like hanging out with him and he makes me laugh” not “I want to date him”. my first crush was when I was in the first grade. We confessed mutual feelings, but I didn’t want to do anything, like start dating. The second boy was when I was in the fourth grade. He went to my daycare, and again I just really liked hanging out with him. He was fun. I left that daycare and never saw him again, so I never confessed feelings, but I didn’t care that I didn’t. And lastly, I had a two year crush on a boy from fifth to sixth grade. He got a girlfriend midway through seventh grade. Everyone expected me to be jealous and upset, because everyone knew I liked him. But I didn’t care at all. Anyway, way too much information, but I’m just confused. Cause I hear all these different names like squishes and other things, because aromantic people don’t have crushes? I just want to know if it’s normal to have had actually crushes on people when you were younger. As of recently I haven’t had anything really remotely similar to those feelings when I was younger, but anyway. Assure me please. 🤝 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
