sarcastic kitten Posted April 25, 2017 Share Posted April 25, 2017 Before I start, I'm gonna apologise for any mistakes in English that i'll certainly make during this presentation. But well, as a certain Doctor says : 'Allons-y !' I've been struggling with my 'lack' of any romantics feelings since I have been able to understand what whas 'Love' and so on. And when you've been arleady seen as a weirdo pretty much all your life, imagine my delightful reaction when I became aware that there was an other thing that keep me away from a 'normal person'. Sooo I did, what I think was the best : I just bottled up those toughts and I put it in a corner of my brain and swear to never bring this subject back with anyone, especially me. Long story short, after some dating, I couldn't lie to me anymore and I've embraced the aromantic spectrum . I'm not disgusted by love, I just don't feel anything more than respect and tenderness for my partner, not to mention the sexual/physical attraction. I'm not particulary fond of shouting my sexuality or my romantic orientation every time I met a new person, unless they ask me about it... But pretty much all of the persons I care about are totally okay about it and very accepting and sweet. That was much more diffcult for my parents to understand (the usual : it's a phase, there's something wrong with me, You didn't meet the right person yet... yada yada), but well, I can understand their point of view and how it can be difficult to understand as the majority population is alloromantic. I've pretty much come to this forum accidentally, but I couldn't let pass this change to exchange views and words with the aromantic community here. Finally, i'm gonna introduce myself : I'm 17, French , female, and i'm on the first year of medical studies. I 'm a bit of an introvert and I really love to read, play video games or just enjoy a drink with my friend. I'm delighted to meet you all !
