Single Status Update
So I pretty much outed myself at school today so that's fun. For convenience I'm calling the other two people involved Friend 1 (F1) and Friend 2 (F2). Some brief context: I wanna say a couple of weeks maybe a month before this my friends and I were joking around and saying what sexuality we gave off vibes for (wasn't the greatest thing we could've done but it's in the past now) and either F1 or my other friend (not F2) said I was asexual. I think I was still a bit unsure about my sexuality at this time. This other friend then messaged me later asking if I was actually ace or not. I said "I never said I was"
Onto the story! Me and F1 were talking and she said that she found someone attractive. I disagreed with her and we went back and forth a bit talking about standards when she said that I was ace. I replied like I did above "I never said I was". I then asked her if she actually knew what the definition was and she said that it was when you reproduce by yourself (i think she was joking). She then started talking to F2 and F2 said the proper definition. She then asked if I was ace. I replied with you guessed it "I never said I was". She then asked if I was aromantic. By this point I was freaking out since I'm not ready to be out yet. She asked who I liked. I'm not sure if she meant a specific person or just which genders and at this point I'm too afraid to ask. I said no and then she said that made me aromantic (so if you just don't like anyone atm I guess you're aro???). I think she was trying to explain the defintions of ace and aro to F1 and got them a bit messed up so I ended up half shouting them so yeah!!!! I'm fucked. This was a long status update lol
Edit: I want to add that the reason why I think I almost outed myself is because I got pretty defensive and acted like I was denying something that was true which I was in fact doing.
