Am I Aro?

I'm 24 and recently had my first romantic relationship. I always thought I wanted a relationshipt but when I finally got in one, I just felt weird about everything. Things like kissing her or even cuddling made me feel uncomfortable. When she would ask if I wanted to come over, I secretly didn't want to go. I was hoping it was just relationship jitters, but when she broke up with me, I honestly felt relieved. Now, when I look into the future, I don't see myself in a serious relationship or getting married. I know I'm not asexual because I'm still attracted to women but as far as relationships, I don't see the need see the need anymore.

Please help me.

Only you can determine what you are. You certainly could be aromantic! Aroallos (aromantic allosexuals) certainly exist.

So aromanticism can either be defined by not experiencing romantic attraction, or not having romantic desire. Or both. Romantic attraction would be like.... crushes and stuff, or having romantic feelings when in a relationship. The desire would be more like the desire to have a romantic relationship. Some aros define themselves on one or the other.
Desire without (romantic) attraction is referred to as cupioromantic, and romantic attraction without romantic desire is referred to as lithromantic. And of course, some aros have neither.
