“For those who are aromantic, how did you figure it out? I’m in the state where I’m questioning. I already know I’m ace, but aromanticism is something I’m trying to figure out. I know I find people aesthetically pleasing, and I am very sex positive and enjoy sex, but I’m never attracted to people sexually. And although I’d like to be in a relationship with someone, the way I love (hot and cold with interacting and physical contact) is just not really conducive to most romantic folks.
And I’ve discovered I feel the same way in close friendships as I do in relationships.
So, like, am I alone in this or what can I read/who can I talk to to help figure out what this is (or isn’t).
Thanks, everyone! ❤️
