Something about being wrapped in someone’s arms or just the simple touch. I even like to feel their heart beat against my back or as I lay across their chest. It just comforts me to a point I can’t explain. I love to touch , I love affection. I’ll be fine with being single until I have nights where I really would just love the comfort of being in someone’s arms…
You can be aromantic and asexual and still want a “special someone”.
A desire for emotional closeness does not invalidate or contradict your idenity.
Being aroace doesn’t always mean “I want no close relationship whatsoever.” It can mean that and if it does, that’s perfectly okay - but you can feel no romantic or sexual attraction to anyone and still desire a close relationship.
You may want a best friend to share your life with rather than a partner.
You may like the idea of living together with someone.
You may want a platonic relationship (a not romantic, not sexual relationship).
You may even want to raise kids with a co-parent (someone you raise kids with but do not date).
You may want a platonic cuddle buddy.
Or something completely different!
There are so many different possibilities - and all of them are okay.
You’re not less aromantic or asexual for wanting a close bond of any kind! <3
Legend says if you’re heartbroken enough and you cry into a sunflower, Hunk will appear with a tub of ice-cream, your favourite movie and a bunch of soft yellow blankets and will be your cuddle buddy until you feel better.
