A lot of people have asked me the difference between aromantic and asexual, so to make it simple:
The ‘a-’ prefix means ‘not’.
Therefore, aromantic means ‘not romantic’ (i.e. ‘doesn’t experience romantic attraction’) and asexual means ‘not sexual’ (i.e. ‘doesn’t experience sexual attraction’).
Just think of it like religion. Religious people are called theists, and people who aren’t religious are called - altogether now - atheists!
when I was little, I went through a phase where I’d wear my Spiderman costume under all my clothes, so I wore it for about 3 years straight and my mom never found out until one day when we were at a family party, I was wearing the costume under a really fancy and expensive dress, and someone started choking on something so I ripped off the dress to reveal the costume to try and save them, and I think my mom just about had a heart attack
