Are you seeing anyone?
In a romantic sense? No. I am aro/ace. I have had a few of what I thought were crushes in my life, but in retrospect they were all quite platonic. I just wanted to hang out with the person for a long time. Like possibly the rest of our lives. I never did anything about them, either, I think because deep down I knew I didn’t really want it.
I’ve had a couple of people in my life try to ask me out and start a romantic relationship, but as soon as I realized what was happening I panicked and made some excuse to get out of it. If I had known what aromanticism was at the time, it might have been a clue, haha. Recently a coworker tried to approach me, too, but I already knew I was aromantic and did my best to gently turn him down.
I’m happy with my life. I have great friends, a great family, adorable pets, and an obsession with a silly Netflix series that makes me happy all day long, every day. I kind of still want to have one special person to hang out with forever, but I’m okay with the way things are, too.
