what does the black ring/white ring scenerio mean? i'm new to the ace/aro community so I dont really know
So a black ring (usually worn on the middle finger of your right hand but that’s not necessarily where you have to put it) is an ace symbol that basically just lets other ace people, who know about the black ring, know that you’re ace. It’s not particularly well known outside the community (and even sometimes in the community) and it was started in a thread on AVEN’s website back in 2005.
Then the white ring, as far as I know, is something that was suggested as an aro equivalent to the ace ring. I’m not 100% on this one but I think it’s even less well known than the ace ring and I’m not sure that many, if any, aro people actually use the white ring. Personally I’ve seen aro people wearing arrow rings, never white rings but it’s totally possible that I just haven’t come across it (I’m relatively new to the community myself).
I hope this answers your question, if not feel free to message me again, about this or anything else. ^.^
I think I read that the ring for aro people is white. I might not be right, but I think I've seen a few people say that. Also, I'm happy because I just got a black ring!
Yeah, I saw someone suggest that in a thread I came across but there seemed to be as many people disagreeing with that as agreeing and I’ve never seen/heard of an aro person wearing a white ring so I’m not sure if anything ever came of that. I could be wrong though and if it’s something you’ve seen maybe a white ring is a known aro symbol and I just don’t know about it so thanks for your input. ^.^
And that’s wonderful, I’m so happy for you. It’s such a good feeling getting a black ring and being able to wear it everyday. ^.^

Some people (myself included) wear a black ring on the middle finger of their right hand to symbolise being ace-spec so that they can feel part of the community and other aces can recognise them, the aromantic community had a vote on what they should use to symbolise being aro-spec and the results came back resulting in a white ring being used.
