So this guy recently expressed his interest in me, and I don't know how to tell him that I don't do the romance thing. I'm really bad with words, and I'm a little ball of anxiety, and I don't want to make him feel bad. What do I do?? This is the first time anyone's actually expressed interest in me, how do I deal with this?? It's slightly uncomfortable
first of all, as a fellow bad-with-words ball-of-anxiety type person, i recommend using text. or like facebook messenger or whatever. it might feel insensitive to not turn him down in person, but you’re probably gonna do a better job if you can read what you’re saying before you send it.
next you wanna figure out if you’re ok coming out to him. if you are, then craft a message along the lines of “hey, i think you’re a really nice guy and [whatever other nice things you feel like saying], but i’m aromantic. this means [your definition of aro here]. sorry”. then if he wants he can even go do research into aromanticism.
if you’re not ok coming out to him, you could either write the same message but leave out the “i’m aro” part and just have the “i don’t date” part, or you could make something up about not wanting to date until [graduation/college/etc] or you want to put school first or something.
either way you can emphasize that it’s not personal, it’s not cuz you’re not into him, it’s cuz ur not into anyone.
Seismic sense is a sub-skill of earthbending that constitutes for physical sense. This skill enables earthbenders to detect vibrations in the ground to perceive objects, people, and other aspects of their environment, essentially acting as sonar, but through earth and metal.
hear me out @klanced and @summer-arts: in ur warrior cats au zarkon stays human (or
alien i guess?) the whole time. like the rest of the galra and all the other voltron characters are their cat
equivalent but zarkon is still his regular self and it’s never recognized by anyone. like idk i
just keep thinking of this big ass dude standing in the middle of a forest in
the middle of the night surrounded by a ton of cats and saying something
along the lines of “Riverclan needs to stay in their fucking borders”
