    I think the fact that Jaiden is asexual actually is pretty cool. It is interesting to know that people with no romantic interest actually exist, because their sexual orientation gets treated much like a "what if" scenario.
    Knowing someone who is as relatable a person in many other areas de-alienizes it.
    Keep up the good work Jaiden :)

      @NotStebey Hmm while it looks like it, it isn't. I'll speak about the romantic part since idk what sexual attraction is.
      While my friends developped crushes, fantasies on classmates they knew within a year or so, I took like 4-5 years before falling in love with my best friend. I didn't find any other people appealing that way before. It's like we had a bond I share that I didn't have with other people.

    Honestly, to the aroace community: There have absolutely been a number of times when I’ve thought about how much time and focus goes into romance and attraction for most people and how much more productive I could potentially be without those big distractions. So, perhaps that can be a benefit for you. More focus and time to put into your life’s *actual* passions instead of worrying about passions it seems like everyone else has.
    Best of luck and a happy and fulfilling life to you all!

    Thank You Jaiden! You’re right. Romantic Love is HEAVILY the most talked about thing in the world. Its really frustrating at times and often feels like it’s a thing you need in your life to be happy too. But coming from my own experiences, being single and having self love is just as equally the best feeling in the world and I’m very happy myself and everything in my life, Relationship or not. Aro/Ace is more than valid and I’m very proud and happy for you Jaiden🌈
    Also, Ey! I’m Ace too!😄

    This video is so relatable.
    I remember doing the same thing as a kid picking a random popular ish guy and being like "yea j have a crush on him. I named my gold fish after him because I very much love him"
    And then when I was like 12 I thought asexuals ment your not interested in a relationship so I came out to my friends using that. Then realised what it actually ment and cane out again.
    For a while I refused to believe I was aromantic. I started dating a guy {he really liked me and everyone thought we would be good together so I also made pros and cons and decided to}
    It didn't work out and we broke it off but then I realised "huh, I didn't actually feel anything towards him" I didn't cry after the break up, wasn't even sad I just moved on with life and was so confused how everyone would be so heart broken over it
    Came out as aromantic last year I think? Or beginning of this year.
    Nearly dated a girl but again didn't work out.
    Then realised I'm actually cupioramantic {I can never spell it right lol}
    Very long journey. I thought for a while I was bi/pan and maybe even poly because of it all. I'm very glad the community {this video especially} and my friends were able to help
    This is definitely a big comfort video for me ❤

    I feel really compelled to say that, while I don't necessarily relate to being aroace at all, hearing Jaiden at 12:40 say "I'm having the time of my life" made me choke up a lil. I guess if it's a struggle I don't have any understanding of, knowing that they're happy regardless is the most heartwarming thing ever.
    This was really brave to post. Thank you for being open and comfortable enough to share the general experience. Live your happy life girl

    This video was incrdible! It made me realise that I’m aroace too, as I related to many things brought up in this video. Kids my age always developed crushes when I was younger, and I never did, so I tried to act as if I had one. And since today I always thought some people were really attractive (making me think I had a romantic/s3xual attraction to them), but when I thought about whether I actually wanted to hold hands, cuddle or even KISS, I realised I had never actually had an attraction to them. Thanks for this video Jaiden (:

      @mynameisnatsu sexual attraction and romantic attraction are two different things, asexual simply means you don't feel sexual attraction. aromantic means you don't feel romantic attraction. Some people are both aromantic and asexual, others may only be one of the two

    I understand you, I am a lesbian and axesual at the same time, but with my partner it is very difficult for me to be romantic, even so I have been with her for 2 years and it is still difficult for me or for her to understand that I am not that romantic nor do I want to light the spark yet The most that has turned her on is to give her my hand or a small kiss on the cheek (lll¬ω¬)

    Funny thing, I currently identify as bisexual(in the “it might as well be Pan” sort of way) and the emphasis is on sexual here. When I came out and my mom asked about any crushes I may’ve had, the only thing I could say was “huh, I don’t think I had any” which I didn’t really think about too much because I’m just kinda living my life here being a hyper sexual crushless individual but watching this I thought to myself “holy shit, I did the exact same things” when I went to school I would look around at all my classmates and rate their attractiveness in my head. Sure, I found them attractive in an “intimate” way (in the most respectful way my horny brain could) but when I actually gave consideration to starting a romantic relationship with anyone I just wasn’t feeling it. Do I wanna cuddle? Sure I do bring it in, do the deed? Yessir 🫡. But did I see myself ever having a long-standing relationship with someone in a way other than friendship? It never really crossed my mind in any other way than “is this supposed to develop this way?” I would even get anxious when I felt that someone may have feelings for me and either distance myself or play the fool. The only times I felt assured was when I learned they definitively didn’t have a crush on me in which case I would be able to talk to them like normal. It’s something to consider. Should I put more research into aromanticism? Of course, I don’t think this is going to be seen since this video is 6 months old.
    TL;DR: I am a sexual being that wants to screw every consenting adult that moves but will run away at the sight of romance.

    • Ignorant1
      Ignorant1 6 दिन पहले +1

      Someone saw this~
      Anyway hi, I'm Asexual and have met several Aros who have had very similar experiences to you. The sense of anxiety around a relationship progressing into romance is definitely an Aromantic behaviour, and being hypersexual is as-well (since without the desire to date, the desire to be intimate feels much stronger. That same logic explains why alot of Asexuals are hopeless romantics). Seeing others as attractive and craving intimacy while fearing/disliking romance are the textbook traits of an Aro. Definitely look into Aromanticism!

    I know im a bit late but i want to just say this, thank you Jaiden. I discover that the term Aromantic exists and well that i myself am Aromantic. Now finally after years of feeling like i was a broken human, and that my exisistence was wrong, can finally accept it. I can feel in peace with myself and more comfortable and thats help me a lot with a depression i have since middle school. Sad to know that now at my 24 years old life i wasted a lot of my time feeling like this but yeah its not something easy to understand. Im italian and here theres a non stop talking everywhere about romantic love, even more than usual, and its bothersome a lot, let alone confused me more and more as the years passed.
    Sorry if my english isn't great, i try my best, but i just want to thank you in some way ( Hoping that this comments will reach you ) and again i cant thank you enough for this and for a lot of your animation and stories too! Thank you.

    I'm pretty late to this but honestly it really helped me feel validated and confirm what I had been thinking. I wasn't sure, but after several very failed relationships in which I never once felt romantic love or anything beyond them being a best friend, I'm pretty sure I'm aro. Literally everything you said in regards to being aro resonated with me so much and I have thought every single you said at some point in time. I'm honestly still not completely convinced romantic love is a real thing. Being aro but not ace was especially confusing to me since I would be attracted to someone and we'd be besties so it made me think maybe that was all there was to it. Apparently not, it would seem.
    Tldr thank you so much more making this, it's helped me feel a lot more comfortable in being aro.

    ABSOLUTELY love that you are talking about this and shedding a light on aro-ace!!!! I felt so much of this growing up and didn't learn about asexuality until late high school and felt so much relief when I learned about it. I still haven't really figured out the romantic side of stuff for myself because I'm in a loving relationship with my husband, so I really don't know if I do actually have romantic attraction or not. But I do love him and would never not want to be married to him. But the statement of understanding aestetic attraction was literally my favorite point you made in this whole video! My best friend and I both learned we were asexual around the same time because we found out people actually weren't joking/exaggerating when they were explaining what you feel when you are sexually attracted to someone. I'm glad that someone with the influence that you do has come here to talk about it, even in general terms because more people need to know about this! Especially if they are someone like me (and you) that felt broken or wrong until they learned about it! I always felt so broken and left out when people were gushing over their crushes and what not. I used to also make up crushes to make people not think I was weird... I mean I am weird but not in that way haha. So thank you so much for making this video and sharing the wonderful world of aro-ace that we live in!

    Oh God this is so relatable! I never had the phase where I thought I needed to be in a relationship, I just went blissfully unaware through all my school life, never having a crush or feeling the need to get intimate with someone else (this also meant I got really uncomfortable whenever someone admitted to having a crush on me, like I thought we were just chilling but I guess not). After finding out I was aroace it also helped me understand why I've always hated romance plots in books and movies, it just never appealed to me and now that I'm older I finally understand why

    Hmm, this is very useful actually when it comes to much of what you said, at least puts things into perspective. I was personally rather afraid of being preached to and this is not that at all. I would in fact describe it as educational using the medium of personal anecdotes. Top notch video take this like!

    I’m not aromantic but i agree with the not-getting-why-being-just-friends-is-a-bad-thing point. Friendship rocks. No kisses i suppose, but still great
    Edit: this was not meant to cover every situation or be seen by many people at all, agh! I totally understand it being extremely painful when someone you have deep romantic feelings for doesn’t share them! I do think sometimes friendships, particularly male-female friendships, aren’t appreciated enough on their own unless they have the possibility of leading to a relationship. I was more trying to refer to that concept, though I realize I didn’t make that clear. I was sort of imagining a low-stakes situation of an acquaintance shooting their shot with another acquaintance (which could also be scary or embarrassing depending on the individual situation of course, but I figure it could also turn into a friendship if the awkwardness was surmountable). If you were rejected by someone you had romantic feelings for, I promise I’m not trying to dismiss that hurt, this comment was not meant to be universally applicable! And ending a friendship because it’s painful or awkward for this reason is absolutely not inherently a bad choice.
    Edit part 2: rewatching the video, I think I also should have phrased the sentence as understanding a feeling rather than agreeing with a point.

      ​@Hello There i dont think its unnatural that people would want to place higher value in romance, because you get to have a "special" someone or be the special someone of someone else the times you spend with them feels more special, most of the time its uncontrollable, people have "types" those they prefer but you dont get to chose who it is because that's just the surprises of life, i think that's why people really yearn for that, but i think it because *can* relate to it so keep in mind the difference in perspective

      @samm I added an edit hopefully clarifying. I feel like this reply is kind of assuming bad faith and maybe overly mean, but also I didn’t word my comment particularly well so that’s at least partially on me. If someone had a crush on me that I didn’t reciprocate, I would not expect them not to be hurt by that. I was trying to refer more towards cultural attitudes towards being friends over dating in general

    Seeing this - at the age of 29, has actually made me kind of think about and understand marginally more about myself.
    You'll likely never see this, but on the off chance you do - Thank you for making and sharing this, Jaiden.

    Enlightening! Now I know what to call myself. Thank you for sharing! It's nice to hear someone else who feels the way I do. I've also been told my whole life about how broken or messed up I am because I don't have (and never have been in) a relationship--and don't want one. It's even worse when I keep getting told "oh, you'll want one someday! And then you'll want kids too! You'll feel too broken and incomplete!" and I just don't.
    I just wish people would stop assuming EVERYONE *needs* to have intimacy/romance in their life to be happy and that it's sad/pathetic when they don't. I'm quite happy with snuggling my pets, chilling with my best friend, working, and leaving it at that.

    What a great video. Funny, informative and touching. I also think beyond the spectrums, it talks about the very real difficulties of assumed normalized sexuality. I'm only slightly outside "normal" and I was still confused as hell growing up because if I didn't like what society said I should, so therefor something was wrong with me. Nice to know other people made confusing assumptions aboutthemselves.
