So, I’m aromantic.
I don’t remember if I’ve actually stated this before, but I am. I don’t fall in love and I don’t really feel romantic attraction. Now, anyone who’s paid some attention to me would known that I’m not asexual… I’ve been pretty open about my pansexuality, and my liking for sexy ladies as well as handsome dudes and good-looking inbetwixters. But I’m not ROMANTICALLY attracted to them. It took me some time to figure this out, but there’s a difference between being horny and wanting romance.
For some time I presented myself as pansexual and “borderline aromantic,” but as of late I’ve figured that I might as well drop the “borderline.”
And so, as an aromantic, I don’t really pay much attention to Valentine’s Day. Not that the holiday is a very big deal here in Norway anyway… it’s definitely more mainstream now than it was when I was a kid, but still fairly easy to forget. And that’s what I usually do; I’ll be vaguely aware that Valentine’s Day is coming up because I see ads for romantic gifts and candy, but on the day itself I’ve forgotten about it and usually I don’t remember it until several days later.
