No one shoot me for this, but I think that these labels are confusing. Just love who you love and do what you're comfortable with; I don't see the need to label your preferences with a long word that can potentially restrain you

idk

it's just that say you identified as aromantic, and you know you'd be super happy in a relationship with someone but you're forced to decline it because you don't want to lose your status within that label idek

I don't care about the status thing.
It's not like that matters. It's just I can't tell what I actually am because I can't actually sit down and figure this one out. Would I have a real relationship? I can't tell! It's very, very confusing.

Yeah, you're right.
I tend to simplify things when I'm forced to explain them.

ok so im not gonna shoot you down or anything but i get slightly annoyed when people say not to label yourself because labelling and finding a term that fits someone is a huge relief for some people and helps them figure out stuff!!
of course labels should not restrict you, sexuality and romantic orientation are fluid!! but please do realize that not labelling can also be as harmful as labelling, and vice versa. both can be harmful and helpful!!
thats all i have to say thank u 4 listening 2 annoying elliot

If having a label legitimately helps you figure shit out, that's great. I just think that you need to put yourself first and the label you want to fit into second if that makes sense idk

ok thank you

like for the longest time I tried to convince myself I was a lesbian just because I labled myself like that and I'm not and that's okay but idk if I hadn't gone through that I'd probably be a lot more comfy being openly bi with my school now. :3
