okay so i know i'm asexual. and i'm pretty sure i'm aro. but there's this friend i had and whenever i was around them id get butterflies and id want to hold their hand. apparently this is a sign of romantic attraction, but isnt necessarily. anyway i was completely repulsed to the idea of dating them (mostly) and anything romantic repulses me A LOT. like kissing, cuddling, touching- all of that repulses me. and i can't figure out the difference between romantic and platonic attraction. i think im quoiromantic?? idk- i feel broken like i'm missing out on romantic attraction, and society puts so much emphasis on sex. kids are already talking about dating and stuff, and for me it's all something i can't relate to. and i think i've experienced alterous attraction, platonic attraction, and aesthetic attraction. sensual attraction seems to also blur lines with romantic attraction for me. it all makes no sense- someone help. i feel like i might want a queerplatonic relationship at some point in my life but im not ready for that yet. yeah someone help i'm identity crisising all over the place one sentence to describe my current orientation: "why have a gf/bf/enbyfriend when you can have garlic bread"
Hello i am a very confused person right now as i have started thinking a little more than i usually do…I don’t know what my sexuality is. Part of me really wants to date someone but the other part of me feels uncomfortable with that. Part of me says i can date any gender the other part says i’m straight. I say that i’d date anyone but do i mean that? i honestly want to be bi or something but then i feel like i can never actually date anyone because the thought of it makes me uncomfortable and it feels wrong, but i really want to be able to date someone. i feel broken and i don’t know what to do. i know i don’t have to find a set answer right now, but i want to try and get somewhere with it. :(
Hello! Im pretty old member of LGBT+ community (since i was 10) and I’ve only just started wondering if i might be aromantic. I just want to maybe get some stories how someone who identifies as aromantic figured it out for themselves. For me, a sign that maybe im aromantic, is that im not really good with emotions in relationships. Thinking back, after awhile i started treating my partners more as best friends than someone im supposed to be romantic with. I could see them being annoyed by that but i didn’t know how to change that. I still don’t. I want to feel romantic feelings but the closest I’ve came to of that type is what i create in my head. I love the person i create in my mind even if i know they’re not like that in real life. I love some traits of the person who im maybe seeing in somewhat flirty way but the other traits just ruin it for me. I’m pretty flirty with a lot of friends but when they express any type of serious romantic attraction i get scared. I don’t know where it comes from. If there’s any aromantic people here, could i get some kind of a little `how did you find out you’re aromantic`
