Marv Posted March 24, 2022 Share Posted March 24, 2022 Hello, I've been posting a lot of worries and questions lately, and although I want to say sorry for posting yet another one, it's what this forum is for so here goes. So, I'm pretty much 100% sure I'm asexual, if not then greysexual, but the point is I'm repulsed by sexual stuff and that's that. Now, I've also been wondering if I'm aromantic. I was chatting with my friend who just the other day admitted that she likes me, I admitted I like her too. There's all sorts of barriers in the way though, but the main thing is, as we were talking, I suddenly started reflecting on my feelings and googled aromantic and was surprised. See, I've always thought that it was about not wanting a relationship or not having any romantic attraction to anyone ever at all, but I saw that it isn't just that, it can be LITTLE to NO romantic attraction and you can still want a relationship. It got me thinking because I pretty much never have any romantic attraction to anyone. I've had probably less than 10 crushes in my life and I'm 21. I've never really had a strong romantic crush on celebrities, or fictional characters, and when I have they're not strong at all and fizzle away pretty quick. The part that makes me sad is I'd really like to be in a relationship one day and I'd love to get married, but how can I do that when I'm rarely attracted to anyone at all? It's so frustrating. Even if I had a good crush on someone, I'm scared that we'd get together and the slightest breeze would just blow my romantic feelings away. After reading the definition of aromantic, I realised that it makes perfect sense. If you knew me you'd be like 'oh that explains everything'. I've struggled before, too, with not understanding whether I'm just incredibly good friends or attached to someone in a friendly way, or if I like them. It doesn't help that I'm generally just terrified of relationships anyway, but I'd really like one and to get married, like I said. Finding someone who meets my criteria, whatever that criteria is in all this, seems impossible. I don't know how to navigate this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
