I dont understand the concept of dating

I need time to breathe when I’m angry or else I lash out like a heavy-footed she-beast.In my relationship (but maybe not yours), the best medicine in the world for intra-marital conflict is for me to be by myself, preferably with some sleep time in there somewhere. In fact, I’ve uniformly rejected every piece of relationship advice that I’ve ever been given — thank GOODNESS, because relationship advice is fucking dumb. In all the relationships I’ve witnessed from the sidelines of my longterm union, this is the one rule that has never gone away, never wavered, never been disproven.Being an aromantic means that I don’t have romantic attraction.A lot of people assume that this means I can’t be loving, friendly, or even sociable.But the key is that everything is talkable, and open communication is the key to navigating the relationship scene in a country that we are not originally from.I’ve been in an obnoxiously happy relationship for fifteen years.

What a lot of people don’t realize is how it feels to be an aromantic person who’s in a romantic relationship. I like helping people and it makes me feel happy to see others happy.

That doesn’t change in a relationship, but what the person I’m dating expects from me does.

In a relationship, I’m always wondering if I’m doing “it” right.

Their challenge: Spend two weeks using the app to find out what — or who — they're missing. Need someone who wants to see Coney Island for a day before it gets too cold!?

[But] for Bumble, it probably was best to take pictures that actually looked like me, since, you know, (hopefully) I’d go on some actual dates with actual guys who would meet me in person.

Bumble allows you to choose six pictures, so I went with the following: one just of me (so boys knew who they’re talking to), one with some friends (to show that I, you know, had them), one with my niece (family-oriented), one at a tailgate (because I’m fun — ), one Halloween pic (to prove I can let loose), and one out in nature (to show how carefree I am — sort of).
