maria-artz:

I decided to make this post for Aro-Spec Awareness Week (since I’m aro myself)

Being Aromantic is not a choice. It’s just who we are.

This post may help you learn more about aro/ace orientations.

And I forgot to mention the Aro-Spectrum identities:

Demiromantic: only feeling romantic attraction to someone once you’ve formed a strong emotional bond. Can be used with another term or on its own

Recipromantic: only feeling romantic attraction when you know the person is attracted to you

Grey-Aromantic: very rarely feeling romantic attraction towards anyone. Can be used with another term or on its own

Lithromantic/Akoiromantic: experiencing romantic attraction without desire for reciprocation 

 Aroflux: how aromantic you feel fluctuates
