7 Things Aromantics Would Like You to Know

It's amazing that most people nowadays support the LGBT+ community. But as an aromantic I made the experience that most people really don't know about it existing

So here are some things we would like you do know:

1. Aromanticism is a real thing

Not everyone experiences sexual attraction.

2. We are not being like this just for attention

It's not that much of a big deal. Probably it's one of the least interesting things about us.

You can't change your sexual orientation like you do change your underwear.

  • I'm asexual but I wish I was aromantic too. Not having sexual attraction is a boon, I wish I didn't desire romantic attachment too. It seems like it would be simpler, although from your take y'all have to deal with a lot of the same shit as asexuals. Minor shit but it adds up when it's literally every time you have to seld-disclose your identity.

    • Well... let me explain.

      There is a differnce between being aromantic and being asexual. Some people don't experience romantic attraction AND sexual attraction.

      Since I identify as an aromantic I just don't get the whole romance thing. It doesn't affect my sex drive in my case.

    • Just like anyone else I would say. I have many good friends and I think platonic love is a great thing. I also think some people are attractive. I just have no romantic desire. That's it pretty much.

  • Thanks
