The least romantic thing you'll read all day

Posted on

1. To begin with, aromanticism is a real thing

Not everyone sees the dress as black and blue, not everybody enjoys cilantro, and not everybody experiences romantic attraction.

2. We're not looking for attention or doing this only to be a "special snowflake"

3. Not that we're not special snowflakes of course

No two snowflakes are alike. Some aromantics enjoy sex, some like cuddling, some have longterm partners and...some don't.

5. ...And it's not because we "just haven't met the right person"

Columbia / Via youtube.com

Did you have to meet the right person before you realized you were straight/gay/bi/pan/etc.?

6. We're not heartless robots

Robots are cool but aro people can still love their family, friends, and pets and have an impressive social life to boot. Just remember, there are many different kinds of love :)

New Line Cinema / Via mtv.com

All the emotion, all the confusion, all the grandiose gestures...why?

9. It is kind of amusing watching people try to understand us though...

"So are you dating anybody?"

-"Nope"

"You're looking though, right?"

-"Nope"

"But, like, you will find someone eventually though? I mean...you can't be single forever"

"So you don't like boys? You don't like girls? What do you like then?"

Aro person: "Food, friends, movies, traveling, TV, music..."

1 eternity later:

"...netflix, sports, hiking..."

11. But being aro is pretty great...

12. And we wouldn't trade it for anything in the world
