Most asexuals can fall in love and want to enter romantic relationships, though whether they have difficulties being in a relationship due to their sexuality is a different issue altogether.Aromantic people can enjoy sex without romance, and asexual people can enjoy romance without sex. Woman B: I'd say it's a constant feeling of being a part of and apart from human interaction. I can see myself looking at us, hearing them, and still wonder if this perpetual state of living in third-person omniscient is lonely forever. Woman B: For all the times I've had sex, I was only in bed doing the business because I wanted this person to never stop liking me. I just stick with flings or short-term stuff I get from Tinder.Three anonymous people who identify as aromantic explain what the word means to them, their experiences, and what they wish people knew about being aromantic. Not in the sad way, more like, Man A: Hanging out with people is cool. Pretty robotic when it comes to "romantic" feelings. I wanted them to want me again, regardless of the fact that I didn't want it at all. I told my partner [recently] and they didn't say anything. While I've only had one partner, I have dated and gotten dangerously close to other people. I never act or give the impression I want something long-term. Woman A: I do not imagine that it will be brought back up again. You wouldn't think aromantics could achieve that feeling, but a little part of me had hoped someone would bear-hug me out of this hole and not mind that I wasn't hugging them back.I went to sleep every night wondering what it'd be like to hold his hand and begging the universe to have him pass me more notes in class. On the day after my birthday, I stopped talking to him. I've always liked to look and touch, just felt or had that romantic bond with a woman. Woman B: The relationships I have with my family and friends are as carefully crafted as the ones I have with lovers. There's the guy who still feels like a stranger to me but for the last nine months has been my go-to for gallery openings, movies, food dates, etc. And most importantly, there's the ex-partner I still text and is (maybe) the reason I maintain distance with everyone else, but is also someone I don't want to have to see in person. When they offer me their card and I SUPER POLITELY, gently, innocently, shake my head and decline, everyone on the train will look at them with distaste and then I know I've won. It's not like I went from feeling stuff to not feeling stuff and can compare the two. I get up, work out, go to work, and then am either alone for the evening or hanging out with friends or with a girl I am hooking up with. I don't like having to put up with people's insecurities. I don't mind having someone sit next to me, but I start to get itchy when it becomes obvious they need my attention, praise, or time. I know I need validation, but too much of it upsets me. Woman A: I think it should be talked about more in the same space as the LGBTQIA community.I flicked every note he'd leave on my desk off when he wasn't looking. Somewhere in that, there's a connection to the question. I don't like him, but I definitely love him in the "let me take care of you, you need me. Woman A: Someone with ambition and drive to help change the world. I like guys that are so comfortable with being, they make me — someone with really good posture after years of ballet — sort of sit into myself and forget I'm even sitting. Saw a girl a few times that laughed three times total and it was a fake "hah." Was very agitating to be around. I guess I need people to be OK on their own for me feel OK with them. If we are going to go have drinks and conversation about life in general that’s cool, but I don’t take anything further than a conversation. But if they give me that kind of affirmation, I peace out. Woman B: I think people assume aromantics to be inherently inconsiderate of other people's feelings or selfishly motivated.
