anzu2snow Posted February 22, 2017 Share Posted February 22, 2017 Hi! Realized I'm ace last June, and aro back in November. So, I still feel new to the ace community, and even more so to the aro community. Of course, I've always felt this way, but it's good to have words for it, and know that there are others like me. Joined AVEN a while back, so I decided to join this forum. I've felt alienated and different before I knew about both those terms. I thought if I pretended to feel like everyone around me, I'd feel what they felt. Obviously, that didn't happen. I've embraced it now. I'm pretty much out to everyone, and open about it. I've only had 2 people react negatively. One felt sorry for me, and thought that there must be something wrong with me. The other implied that it was a phase, the right man could change me, and that I needed a straight relationship. I think it'd be awesome to have a qpr, and gender wouldn't matter to me. I like the idea of a relationship that's not romantic and sexual. It's more emotional and platonic. Oh, I created a local ace group on facebook, and we're finally meeting offline a week from this Saturday. It'd be awesome if there's another aro ace. I know one of the allies is aro, so that's great, too. I'm an author of 2 books, clarinetist, love my cats, into cooking, love learning languages, learning about cultures, amateur photographer, and more. Sorry, if this was too long. Nice to meet everyone! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
