It says aromantic means either lack of romantic attraction or lack of want to be in romantic relationship. Would anyone disagree if I changed this to the first? The latter seems like a choice, and not what aromantics are about (as abstenence is seperate from asexual, but the two usually go together).
- Hi Drant! Good job on updating this page, it needed it. Do you think squishes should be mentioned? -Hexaquark 01:45, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
I consider myself to be an aromantic asexual. I have no need for a relationship and can't understand why some of you see this as a choice and in fact it annoys me. I have little romantic attraction. I only once have been madly in love with a very good friend with whom I had a very close bond. The only reason why I could have wanted a relationship, was because I didn't want to loose his friendship and not because I wanted one. The thing is I simply have no need for a relationship, I only care for friendship. And it would be nice if this could be included in the wiki again. Especially as this really says what I am. Friendship is one thing for me. A relationship and the sex that comes together with it, is something completely different for me. I know you can have an asexual relationship, but that doesn't appeal to me either. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saggitarius (talk • contribs)
- Hello Saggitarius. If you wish to edit the page, go ahead! I’ve been wanting someone to fix it up for a while. There are some others who have raised concerns in the wiki thread on AVEN and getting a discussion going with them, or other aromantics in the forum, might be a good way to do it if you want to get the options of others (there aren't too many people active on the wiki right now). The article can only be improved if we have people willing to work on it. I'm not sure what you mean by "some of you seeing this as a choice" though, as the article currently reads "these attributes are inexistent by nature and not a personal choice". --Hexaquark 20:45, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
