Being aromantic is very hard. I'm 15 and in high school so everyone is dating someone it feels like. And people ask me "Who do you have a crush on?" And i say "nobody" and they think I'm lying. I recently explained to my friend I was aro but I don't think she knows how lonely I get. Sometimes I hate myself, other times I love myself for being aro. It's very hard.
Just remember that relationships don’t have to be romantic to be meaningful, and you can surround yourself with tons of platonic buddies to keep you company! It’s easy to find other aros on tumblr too, if you want to talk to others feeling like you.
You aren’t alone! <3
