Hi guys! I only recently found out that I was an ace and decided to join because I wanted to know what was going on inside my very much jumbled up head.

 

Heteronormativity has been drilled into my head ever since birth (note: I'm from East Asia) so it was hard - and still is a bit difficult - for me to accept myself, but I wish I could learn more from talking with you guys and hearing your stories!

 

I'm not really sure about anything else about my orientation or really, anything but the fact that I am some shade of ace. I occasionally get mild panic attacks at the idea of sex, and right now that's what I'm trying to get a handle on.

And I don't think I'll ever be coming out to my parents so yeah. I'm sorta depending on you guys to get help for getting over crises and stuff.

 

So. Nice to meet you, I'm 16 and trying to figure things out.

And who knows, maybe even make friends along the way! :>

Every time I hear about a young person having a place to safely learn about themselves, it makes me so happy that the Internet exists. I wish you a wondrous future @tcalypse and I am sure you will find many understanding people here who will support you through your self discovery. Wishing you well.

Welcome to AVEN! It's totally fine to feel that way. Most teens are scared of sex tbh, it's normal. No one can force you! You might wanna look at the wiki to find a term that fits you best, but also remember that no one can label you, only you. Only you know how you truly feel. Hope to hear more from you, enjoy your stay! :cake:

Hello and welcome to AVEN. I grew up in an Asian family (I'm South Asian) so had the heteronormativity drilled into my head too. Hope you have fun here :cake:
