Gingerplume Posted May 29, 2017 Share Posted May 29, 2017 Hello party people. I'm stoked and sorta nervous to be here- I'm working through the realisation that I'm somewhat asexual and quite a lot aromantic, and wondering where to go from there. I've had a few epiphany moments in life. There was the high school girlfriend who I fancied in that teenage way but had no idea how to treat emotionally, the LDR guy I thought I loved but couldn't bear to so much as cuddle with whenever we met up, the man I met through work who I love as a friend and find very sexually attractive but have no desire to 'date', the disheartening online dating spree where every flirt left me colder than the last, and the two ace friends who recently became a couple who I adore and adore together but I just can't comprehend how they can cuddle 24/7. It's only now at 25 that I realise it's time to accept I'm not just picky or shy; I'm fundamentally different from all my friends who are either serial daters or moving in with their beaus and getting rings on their fingers. It's a little scary facing the prospect of being mostly solo forever- no conquests to give you social status, no steady partner to bolster you emotionally and financially, no spawn to look after you in your old age. I'm glad I found this place (through Aven) to remind me I'm not the only one. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
