    "If you can't be romantically involved, why not just stay friends" is an absolutely hilarious line with the context of the new video. The signs have been here all along.

      @lime I’m not that experienced in romantic relationships but maybe people stop hanging out after “rejection” because it’s frustrating - they want things to turn romantic but the other person isn’t interested. I guess it’s like constantly looking at something you want but can’t have so it feels better to just not look.

      La Temporis 26 दिन पहले +1

      @lime Not necessarily love, even friendship, when the person you call best friend doesn't think of you as one, or when your parents prioritize your sibling etc... "You used to be such good friends together, why stop?" It's especially because you were so happy with them, you saw them as a special person in your life that you are hurt and lonely when they don't feel the same way, being near them as "friends" just reminds you of the pain if you get what I am saying.

  • mistyxflowerr•
    mistyxflowerr• 6 महीने पहले +1515

    jaiden being aroace is just a part of her. sure it may change how some people see her, but i still see her as the cool animator with sick talent and that's all i care about. growing up, i'd always pressured myself to think that i had to be dating or having a crush on someone, so your newest video made me happy :)

    • Derpidius
      Derpidius 11 दिन पहले +1

      @Drunk Homer I think it has to do with the more weird / obsessive side of the fanbase, people having problems with a creator's romantic life is nothing new, I recall there being a V-tuber who got in trouble for revealing they had a boyfriend, which upset alot of guys who realized they couldn't be with this person, its actually kind of disturbing

      @Drunk Homer I don’t get it either. I’m happy for her but I really hope she doesn’t just end up being seen as just “the aro Ace INclipsr” over that one video.

    • Oxten
      Oxten 6 महीने पहले +9

      I think its funny because I really enjoyed her videos because I loved the style and how they matched my view. I found it out myself just a few months ago and seeing her recent video makes me feel the same as you :D
      Im glad I only saw it a few days after release because I just can imagine how disgusting some comments must have been. The more it makes me happy to see all the supporting people ... Keep it up!

I still appreciate it though because I love to learn. Do you post anything on your channel? Cuz I wouldn't mind listening to you ramble about it. It was interesting.

    I remember watching this when it came out (back when I didn’t realise I was aroace) and thinking that this was the most relatable thing ever and being really confused that everyone else in the comments thought that she was being weird. I was about 60-70% sure I was aroace before she “came out” but now watching her “coming out” video and this, I can safely say I am 102% sure with a two percent error margin

    I think this video aged wonderfully. It took a while for her to find herself, but in the end she's happy now being herself and deserves all the support in the world. Love you so much, Jaiden! thank you for helping me come out too about my demisexuality. You're amazing. 💕💕

    I always ask the same thing: Why when an attempt relationship doesn't go well, can't you be friends with the other person?
    There was this guy that I really liked. We'd been friends for a few years and we knew each other practically better than anyone else. I didn't know what having a boyfriend was like, or even feeling attraction for someone. And since I really liked this guy, I thought I'd find out with him. By the time I was going to tell him that I liked him, HE TOLD ME FIRST. He and I had been so much in the same page that we were literally going to make the same step at the same time. I was so shocked by the irony that I started laughing and I think I scared him a bit (specially cuz I was his first female friend, ever, and I was the first person he ever asked to be their girlfriend, and I laughed in his face). But then I put myself together again and said that I'd love to be together.
    That worked for, like, 2 weeks. Since I didn't know what 'love' felt like, I thought I'd just feel it with the right person. But no matter what, physical attraction was just... repulsive when I thought about it. Also, only when we started dating as something more than friends I realized that being in a relationship wasn't my thing. I told myself that I was free to live my life however I wanted and if I wanted to be with this guy, no one could tell me that holding hands or hugging was a requirement. But something just didn't work.
    That's when I found out that I'm aromatic. I liked him very much, but being in a relationship with anyone was like trying to fit my head through the arm hole in my shirt. And man it was awkward to tell him that I liked him just as much as before, but being in a relationship was uncomfortable to me. And he thought it was his fault. I made him cry. And how could I explain that he hadn't done anything wrong, that I just discovered something about myself that I didn't know before?
    So I didn't want to cut communication with him cuz I still liked him just the same. But I also hated seeing him hurt and I felt that asking him if he'd recovered was like putting salt in the wound. So I asked my bff if she could ask him (and hopefully help him through heartbreak better than me) and I didn't talk to him for 2 weeks. Until it was a friend's birthday and we saw each other again. And thankfully, we both acted the same way as before, like friends. Like really close friends. He's still my best friend, we hang out and stuff, and I'd hate not to see him again. And I hope he really got over it and isn't hiding it, cuz when we broke up he said that he hoped to still be together if I changed my mind, but that he'd never force me to do anything that I didn't want to do. I appreciated that from him so much more than I managed to verbalize in that moment. But I really doubt that moment will come.
    A couple can go back to being friends. It's not impossible. Just... Awkward at first.

      @choke me with my diamonds And that's why I only ship two people if they're either already a couple or if both said they're okay with it. Once someone expresses discomfort, I stop. I'd say it's easy, but then again, I am aromantic, so it's probably not as easy as I'd perceive unfortunately.

    Yeah....I can beat the last one. Easily.
    I'm a guy and I was hanging out with someone at the mall when we were teens. On our way there, a clown appeared out of nowhere, grabbed my hand, looked at it and exclaimed loudly: "I CAN SEE YOUR FUTURE. And you're gonna be together for a looooong time." And he was SO happy and proud of himself.
    We were both stunned for a couple of seconds and then:
    Her: "I'm his sister."
    Me: "And I'm gay."
    The guy just was devastated and just muttered "Oh...ok" and left.

Everything Jaiden was saying was completely reasonable......until she said "Unless you're a douchebag". Now I fully understand why she doesn't like this video, she was a little entitled back then without knowing she was Aroace. She really thought that's how human interactions worked. So glad she doesn't see the world in black and white anymore and understands the gray areas a little better.

    i wanna say that i can speak from experience on the whole "friends first-tried a relationship-didnt work out" front. in early summer last year i confessed to a girl i wasnt very close with, and she ended up asking me out, we went on 2 dates, after the 2nd one she said wanted to stay friends. i think it is important in that situation, to give yourself some space! something i wish someone had told me then. you will only end up hurting yourself, because feelings dont go away once a relationship ends, so hanging out with them right after a failed relationship will just make you feel AWFUL. trust me, i know. give yourself a month (at least) to not hangout with them one on one, not text them constantly, and just get them out of your head for a bit. i learned to do this eventually (after about 3 weeks of trying to make a friendship work) and now she is my fucking best friend. it can work out, GIVE YOURSELF SPACE!!! :)
