I see a lot of post about people asking how aros actually realized we were aro, mostly bc it really is hard bc you’re basically trying to prove a negative
And like honestly my advice is: if you think you might be aro, it doesn’t hurt anything to id as aro. If later you realize that you’re not, no harm done, glad you could hang with us for a while, good luck with your identity.
Being wrong about who you think u are is fine, there’s literally nothing wrong with it.
I didn’t id as aro for a while bc i was worried about being wrong, but then one day i just said fuck it, I’m aro, and i never looked back. Honestly great move by me bc i was finally able to allow myself to participate fully in the community and i realized that i really related to what other aros experience too
So like if you think ur aro, try it out. If ur right then welcome, and if u find out ur wrong then it’s nbd
