Since I starting dating someone, I've figured out I'm aromantic. I care about my partner a lot, but I don't think I can live up to her romantic expactations. How can I avoid hurting her too much?

Everyone make sacrifices for each other, but that is something you're going to have to ask yourself if you're willing to do for this relationship.

I have felt that way too and it does get tough some times, but in my case we just needed time and with time we understood each other better and if the person loves you back then they'll just accept you for what you are .
