Hopeless Aromantic by Samantha Rendle

Hopeless Aromantic by Samantha Rendle


If you've picked up this book, the chances are you have some doubts about your Happiness 101 assignment sheet. True love; candlelit dinners; 2.1 children; joint bank accounts - The One? It might make you want to a run a mile - or you might just have a few big questions. 
Aromanticism is defined as experiencing little to no romantic attraction to others. Sam Rendle, onetime aromantic asexual, sometime aroaceflux, and present-day label unspecified, knows a thing or two about the aro spectrum - and she has some answers for you.

You'll explore what aromanticism is, how aromantic people form relationships, how to know if you're aromantic and deal with internalised shame and societal stigma. With a history of aromantic representation, guidance on queerplatonic relationships, and testimony from your worldwide aro family - Hopeless Aromantic is the affirmatory aro companion to have in your back pocket.




'Friendly, funny, accessible and wholly necessary. Full of sound advice and much needed affirmation of aro life, this book is an antidote to loneliness' -- Eris Young, author of Ace Voices and They/Them/Their

'Exploring the aromantic experience with a warm, empowering spirit, Rendle shows us the beauty and breadth of being aro. I'm so glad this book exists.' -- Cody Daigle-Orians, asexual writer, educator and advocate
