Hey, I'm aroace and recently I got into a relationship with my best friend, it's like a platonic relationship but am I still good to call myself aroace? I just want to make her happy, and my part of the relationship is clearly platonic but I'd really love to hear your answer.

Of course you can still call yourself aroace! Even if it was romantic, action doesn’t equal attraction, so it would be totally fine.

Also what you’re describing sounds a bit like a queerplatonic relationship to me, so you can look into that if you want. If the term doesn’t work for you that’s completely fine too of course! You’re valid no matter what!
