While we’re on the topic the comic you posted I didn’t know if it was a real thing, I want to fall in love and I want the intimacy of a relationship all aspects of it. But I just don’t feel attraction or love, I even struggle feeling it towards friends and family and tbh I’m not sure I do. In the comic I’ve had that exact experience where I’ve dreamt I’m in a relationship but wake up and honestly it’s the most heart breaking thing ever, people ask what sexuality I am and all I can say is Idk.
Sorry about how long that ask was just didn’t know anyone else felt like this I thought if you couldn’t be attracted to people you didn’t want to be. Like I should be happy I’m not alone in feeling like this but I’m also sad because it means I’ve got to accept it now. I really appreciate the comic so thanks!
I promise you’re not alone in this. The big myths of the ace/aro experience are:
1. All people on the ace/aro spectrums hate sex and never want to have it
2. All people on the ace/aro spectrums are completely happy with and comfortable with their identity.
Neither of which are true, obviously. But that’s all most people - even aro/ace-spec people themselves - see.
