Welcome to this Tuesday’s Question of the Week! Feel free to leave your two cents’ worth and get some discussion happening.
In the ace community we talk a lot about romance. But what does romance actually mean? What do you consider to be ‘romantic’, and what not?
I honestly think romance is one of the most confusing concepts in sexuality-ace-relationship conversations. I don’t consider myself romantic, but more because I have no real idea of how it applies to me. If I had to draw some sort of arbitrary line, I would say that kissing falls into the romantic category… But that in itself is kind of ridiculous. Apart from that, all the other things people usually associate with romance – holding hands, cuddling, etc, are all stuff I do. They’re just not romantic to me… whatever that does mean. *sigh* guess in the end I see romance as some sort of state of mind that just eludes me.
