Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

Okay, so as someone who personally identifies as asexual, I’d like to clarify a few things about Jughead Jones and his potential romantic relationships – they’re possible, and they have the full capacity to be healthy!  

Asexuality has nothing to do with romantic attraction, so to assume a character has to live alone, stay alone, and die alone just because he isn’t the standard teenage boy fuelled by hormones is really misinformed.  

What the fandom seems to be describing is aromantic behaviour – which is lack of romantic attraction. 

Someone who is aromantic can still have an interest in (and often the drive to have) sex, without any interest in dating. And no, I’m not referring to people who avoid emotional attachments. I’m talking about people who literally have no interest in them whatsoever.

On the opposite side of the same coin, asexuality refers to a person with an innate indifference to sex, immunity to lust, and overall disinterest in seeing people naked. That doesn’t mean they’re disinterested in forming close romantic bonds, or that they’ll never have sex. Picture companionship. Love without an underlying drive for sex.

Please stop saying it’s out of character for Jughead to have a potential romantic interest in someone in future episodes.  It’s really not.  It’s only going to be out of character if he suddenly becomes a teenage boy that wants to have sex in the back seat of a car without any kind of romantic build up.

Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.
