Ask an aromantic asexual female.
Trying to write an ace-spectrum character? Curious how people view or experience the world when they have minimal or no romantic or sexual attraction? Found out a friend identifies this way and want to find out pitfalls to avoid to reduce risk of insulting them?
C'mon over and ask a woman who qualifies as aromantic and asexual. (I could also call it the Christian "gift of celibacy", but frankly, "aromantic asexual" is clearer.)
I welcome all sorts of questions.
Most folks on the aromantic or asexual spectrums do experience some form attraction in particular circumstances *sometimes*, or they at least have a libido. I don't.
I'm not some emotionless Vulcan or android—I'm just content with platonic relationships. I don't feel any need, desire, or inclination for more.
Have some questions for me?
Training & Qualifications
I am both aromantic and asexual, on the extreme end of the spectrum. There's no difference between a pretty person or pretty painting, from my perspective, and I've had to learn what's suggestive vs. not by means of observation, inquiry, and memorization. That's as awkward as it sounds.
Availability & Preferences
My availability varies, so just drop me a line. :)
