      Avenues May/June   05/09/17

      Hello AVENites! The newest edition of AVENues is now ready! Our theme this time was "ace connections".  May/June
Briarwood

Hello from a sort-of newbie

5 posts in this topic

I have to admit that I've been lurking for a long time — at least four years, if not more. Using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, it seems that the first AVEN Digest I remember is from January 2013. I pieced together my asexuality around five years ago in high school; I stumbled across the Wikipedia page while hitting the "random page" button to avoid doing homework. I later discovered AVEN, and since then, I've returned on occasion to the forums to see what other people said about questions I had. However, I was always too shy and self-conscious to create an account and preferred to let other people do the talking.

 

That is, until now.

 

About me: I'm a university student in mathematics who dabbles in writing. I'm a heteromantic asexual who is out; most of my friends know. I even have an ace friend or two.

 

I'm here mostly because my non-ace friends don't get it when I make cake jokes. So, please have a slice.

Welcome back! :):cake: I hope you can find the answers you're looking for :)

 

As part of my welcome to you, I'd like to point out some important threads that might be helpful in your first few days here. :) The Terms of Service is here. We recommend you read it over, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to send either myself or any other administrator or moderator (the "admod" team, as we're called) a message.  Also, there's a handy forum called Site Info, which has some useful information including a thread outlining who moderates which forum. If you ever need something done in or have questions about a specific forum, please message the mod of that forum. And if you have problems with the site in general, or any single member, please message any admod. 

The following are also nifty links to take a look at:  Welcome Lounge Mini Manual | Welcoming 101 | Quick Guide to the Forums | Asexuality FAQ's

 Again, welcome to AVEN and I hope your stay is everything you hoped!

Welcome, it's nice to meet another long-term lurker (I lurked around here for 5 years before joining up). Have some welcome cake.

What a bizarre turn of events that must have been. Glad to hear you overcame you're shyness and signed up. :cake:

Yes, one of the best things about asexuality is the amount of puns you can make. I've heard a lot of Ace and Arrow ones in particular. XD
