New to this term? This subreddit is obviously about aromanticism and is frequented by many aromantic people. Any hatred will not be tolerated. It is okay to ask questions if you don't understand aromanticism, and we understand sometimes people don't realize they are saying hurtful things.
You're expected to listen and do your best to be considerate and open-minded here. In particular, posting about aromatic things, aromatherapy etc was funny in the beginning but will now be treated as off-topic and removed.
Krtko a auticko online dating
I'm on a dating site, and I just stumbled upon a person who's listed themselves as Aromantic, and interested in short term dating, long term dating, and
Queerplatonic dating apps sex.
How does this work? As far as I understand, if you're Aromantic you aren't interested in romantic relationships, and to me dating is an inherently romantic activity.
A queerplatonic relationship (or "QPR")...
What does being Aromantic mean in this context? Will this person be offended if I ask them on a date? I would personally interpret "interested in short and long term dating" as "well the site didn't give me any options about what I actually want, but these are kinda close enough".
I know if I made a "Queerplatonic dating apps" with those sort of things checked, I would write somewhere in that profile "I don't mean actual dating, I just mean I would like to go for coffee or hookah or something as an activity to do while we talk and get
Queerplatonic dating apps know each other, establish some sort of friendship before we get to sex".
Why not ask the person in question? Send them a message of "I don't understand how you being aromantic meshes with you being up for short term or long term dating, would you kindly elaborate? I assume they get a lot of messages asking about being aromantic, wanted to be more original.
You can absolutely take that question and be original with it.

Like, given my own experiences on dating sites, most people's questions about it are something along the lines of "hurr durr, is 'aromantic' the new term for 'loose slut'? Yeah baby
Queerplatonic dating apps fuck", and I bet you could do much better than that.
I personally have been on dating sites as an aromantic person. A lot of aromantic people are not romance-repulsed, they just don't experience romantic attraction themselves. Sometimes I've been looking for what someone else could construe as a romantic relationship, but something that would
Queerplatonic dating apps platonic for me - even aromantics want to have love and attention. It can seem confusing for someone who does experience romantic attraction, but just because we aren't romantically attracted to people doesn't mean that we don't want to form close relationships.
Yo, I'm aromantic and have those things listed. Mostly because I'm not even sure what romantic attraction is, but I know I like going places and hanging out with only one other person, and I'd potentially be interested in a platonic partnership, so why not dating for that?
Queerplatonic relationships are a thing, and they may involve dating. I don't see why the person would be offended if you asked them on a date--they have it listed in their profile that they're interested in dating. They might have boundaries about what occurs on the date, but that's true of everyone I think your best bet is to just ask them if they like dates, and if so, what they like to do. Easier said than done, I suppose. I don't feel romantic attraction, whatever that is.
But I do think the benefits of a long-term stable partnership outweigh the costs, by a significant margin, and so I'm interested in participating in one. Which doesn't have to be
Queerplatonic dating apps in nature, but chances are it will end up that way just because of the numbers involved. You guys who are /...
And I'm fine with that. So I suppose technically I'm interested in a romantic relationship. Just clearing up your definition, since the other responders have done a pretty good job of answering the

"Queerplatonic dating apps" Thanks for any help you can give. Want to add to the discussion? Aromantic/Platonic/queerplatonic dating checklist And here's a rebloggable version. This can be used by anyone I suppose, but is made. Both of us kind of knew it wasn't your normal relationship and we're in that stage where we just wanted to fit in so we discussed dating but neither of us wanted to.
When an aromatic get's into a relationship that's more than friends, but less than romantic, that is known as a queerplatonic relationship. Asexuality is not.
