I constantly witness it.
People being in love.
It’s literally everywhere, in the media, and in real life, I
am constantly surrounded by it.
And frankly, sometimes I end up feeling disgusted.
Because I can’t feel like this.
I can’t fall in love; I will never be able to say
Because I’ll never have someone to say them to,
Because I never will
All because I am unable to experience romantic
There’s a word to describe people like me.
And you probably never heard it
Because no one
pays attention to us.
No one acknowledges our existence, we’re invisible.
People will invalidate our identities, and tell us nonsense
“You’ll find the right one someday.”
“Everyone experiences romantic attraction.”
“It’s not real.”
All because we are unable to experience romantic
All because we can’t fit into society’s stupid norms?
How would you feel if I invalidated
Your romantic attractions?
And tell you,
“Romantic love is just an illusion.”
You wouldn’t like that, right?
So why do you do that to us?
Why do you do it to me?
Why do you question us, instead of shutting up and accepting
For who we are?
Why are you in denial?
We are human.
We are not bitter people.
We are not robots.
We are people. just like you,
We can still love. Platonically.
The same way people love their friends and families
and their pets.
We are capable of emotions,
Just not romantic attraction
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
If you think there is,
There’s something wrong with you.
Because we can still be happy single,
We can still have a good time.
Because contradictory to popular beliefs,
Romance isn’t needed to be happy.
