(In case you forget, this was my last message I sent you: I’m sure I’m aromantic, but I don’t think I understand it enough at all so I’m confused. I’ve only ever ever felt lust and friendship for someone. I mean, romantic attraction is still just an ATTRACTION, right? So like, I watch romance movies and I wish I could have a romantic relationship with someone, and I always feel like I can and do (maybe) have romantic attraction, but it gets easily confused with lust. Does this make any sense? If it doesn’t I can submit but do you think I’m aromantic?)
My biggest problem is it’s so easy to confuse lust with romance. I always fall into relationships purely on lust, but when that withers away like lust usually does, I get completely stuck. I’ve always thought of myself as a hopeless romantic before even discovering what aromantics are, so when I see someone and I believe with all of my heart it is romantic attraction, it always happens to be lust.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’ve never ever ever had a pure, true romantic attraction to someone, but I don’t know if I’m incapable of doing so. Like I said, it’s not a true romantic attraction, because lust gets in my way so easily. Lust and squishes are the hardest things to mix together.
Hopefully this was explained better, asks always make it hard to send everything you want. I can always send this to an aromantic blog/forum, but I don’t follow any yet and I’ve known you guys for forever so it’s just a bit more comfortable I guess. Thank you!
