This week is Aromantic Awareness Week

This week is Aromantic Awareness Week Graphic
During this week when many are celebrating being in love, it is important to remember that not everyone experiences romantic attraction. And that’s okay.

Society tends to place a lot of importance on romance and romantic love. For those who identify as aromantic, or “aro,” this can come with a lot of misunderstanding and stigma by people who believe they must be cold-hearted or just haven’t met the “right person” yet. In truth, there are many people of all sexual orientations who do not experience the intense emotions of infatuation or have never had a crush. It doesn’t mean they don’t love people, that they don’t desire sex (they may or may not), or that they won’t choose to enter a partnered relationship at some point in their lives.

If you are curious to learn more about aromanticism, we  have selected three sapphic books where a character identifies as aromantic.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
