[CHAT] Aromantic and Asexual

Valentine's day has come along, and with it the idea of dating, romance and love. This Monday's chat will be about aromanticism and asexuality, which is the lack of romantic and sexual feelings respectively.

Aromanticism and asexuality are similar identities but also exist on their own spectrum. It can be difficult to live in a world that pushes romantic and sexual relationships when you don't feel them. 

 

Come join us for a chat about aromanticism and asexuality at 7:30pm AEDT on Monday the 19th

Re: [CHAT] Aromantic and Asexual

Very little about the first.. Asexuality from what I understand is the lack of sexual attraction to others or a very low interest in the desire for sexual activity. But this could be off, so keen to know more Smiley Happy

Re: [CHAT] Aromantic and Asexual

Hey everyone! Smiley Happy

 

What do you know about aromanticism and asexuality?

 

Well I understand aromanticism as an identity where the person concerned is not romantically attracted to another person, and asexuality where the person is not sexually attracted to other people. That’s literally all I know.

Re: [CHAT] Aromantic and Asexual

@Bree-RO @mrmusic pretty much Smiley Happy It's defined as being a lack of sexual attraction but it's a spectrum itself with some people having no attraction, some people a little.
And aromanticism is the lack of romantic attraction, which is a different kind of attraction to sexual attraction. Like asexuality (and a lot of other things) it exists on a spectrum. You can be both or one or the other Smiley Tongue

Re: [CHAT] Aromantic and Asexual

@N1ghtW1ng has raised an important point - the difference between sexual attraction and romantic attraction. This is often overlooked in my view, and extends far beyond the realms of asexuality and aromanticism. Time for me to get back on topic...

Re: [CHAT] Aromantic and Asexual

hi everyone Smiley Happy

i am interested to learn some more about this, i find it to be an interesting topic and also theres nothing wrong with being different

 

from my understanding asexual is when someone doesnt have any sexual feelings or desires
