Asexual, Aromantic, or both?

This might be a really long post, one that you might think TLDR. It’s a huge topic for me since I’m finally coming to terms with my sexuality and why I am the way I am. There are so many terms and labels going around, it can get confusing. I don’t like to use the word ‘label’ though. To me, it just helps me to explain my situation to people. I can’t change it. Just like a persons race can’t be changed.

So, I started out as identifying myself as Asexual. I mulled over this for months and in the last few weeks I have been reading up on it and other peoples experiences. The more I did, the more I felt like this was me. It was a refreshing realization. It was almost like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.

Don’t know what an asexual is? By definition it means, someone who does not experience sexual attraction. It’s not a choice, it is just the way we are. You can read more about on asexuality.org.
