Have you heard of
Akoiromantic/lithromantic or Freyromantic?
Akoiromantic/lithromantic: A person who experiences romantic attraction, but has their feelings fade if reciprocated. Can also be defined as someone who doesn’t care or want their feelings reciprocated.
Feels attraction to strangers/those they don’t know well, but fades once they know them better. (Opposite of demisexual.)
You may also have been experiencing aesthetic attraction (liking the way someone looks) and confusing it romantic feelings, which is common.
If you feel weird or uncomfortable being in a romantic relationship, you don’t have to stay in it. Just reassure your partner that it’s not about them and they did nothing wrong. If you do want to continue the relationship, that’s fine too. There are arospecs who date, some are even married. However, you should tell your partner that you might be aromantic/arospec after you do some research and soul searching. You’ll probably have to explain what that means and set boundaries for your relationship. They might even decide that it’s not the type of relationship they want. Its hard to take, but it’’ll probably save you time in the long run.
