Hi everyone,

 

I'm Laura and I've just come across this place - oddly, after googling possible reasons for my socks falling off. I can be sitting completely still and after a few minutes I'll glance down and they're hanging off again. It's very odd.

 

Anyway, I'm Demisexual, which is a term I actually only discovered a couple of years ago. Always known, of course, just didn't have a name for it. And then a friend bought it up and it just clicked.

 

I live in London in the UK. I was actually born in Suffolk, which is a couple of hours north-east of London and my ancestry is mostly Scottish. I go into schools and run workshops to help kids with their writing and I also write myself. I'm aiming for TV writing eventually and luckily, my hours are flexible enough to just about manage sample writing. ^_^

Hello there, and welcome to AVEN! :cake:

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!

Thanks everyone. :) I really feel like cake now.

 

Meetups will probably depend on working hours etc., but I'll take a look.
