    I don’t know if this is the kind of thing you are looking for, because it is quite frivolous, but I recently wrote a blog post about being ace. I found some notes I wrote 5 years ago about how hopeless I was at chatting up a guy I fancied at work, which now seems so obvious to me that I was and am aro/ace. https://imthedecoy.blogspot.com/2019/07/an-im-decoy-guide-to-chatting-up.html

    As for the oriented aroaces, I hadn’t even heard of that term before. definitions of all these definitions seems to make everyone argue with each other – at the end of the day everyone’s experience is intensely personal so it can be very difficult to make black and white definitions, especially due to fluidity, questioning or just understanding your own experiences better over time changing your own perception.

      I like it. I’ll put it in.

      IMHO, the oriented aroaces wasn’t so much about the definition. The definition is fine enough. It was more that the website was trying to reserve certain terminology for oriented aroaces, even though other people have long been using similar terminology.
