My mother has literally mentioned science aptitude and good teeth as reasons she liked my father and thought they'd make a "good mix" of genes. Yeeeeah she's probably on the spectrum.

Also she was initially interested in him because he helped so many elderly ladies on his street. Now that one's a lot cuter. 

I first thought my dad must be, but my mom is showing some quirky tendencies too.  I visited my friend the other day and her brother was telling me the stuff that happened to our club (we all went/are going to the same university).  He said that I win the award for the most character development.  Mom took this literally and thought that I won this award last year because that's when I graduated.  No mom, it's just a figurative award, not a physical one.

 

I probably mentioned this somewhere earlier, but my cousin once asked my mom what she liked in my dad.  They're merely legally married since they show no affection for each other, well it's mostly mom and dad wishing he had some.  My cousin said that my mom's reply was that my dad was a handyman.  He often goes out of his way to help people (probably because he wouldn't get praised for what he does at home).  One day, my dad helped some woman out with moving her junk for the junk collection day when he saw her do it all herself (and ditching me, who was left with the car in a long line to the collection site).  She didn't have to wait in line because she lived next to the junk site.  After dad helped her, she was very grateful.  My dad told her that he lives 5 minutes away, near the big square, and that we have a dog sign in our window.  She actually came by looking for him.  Sometimes she came over to our neighborhood dressed nicely too.  She would give him some food in return for his help.  (Dad's good deeds in the neighborhood have somehow gotten us two jars of peanut butter.)  I do wonder if this lady has a thing for my dad.  I then joked back to my cousin and mom, "dang, those handyman charms are working."  And I think mom could be jealous, not because she wants his affection, but more like if he spends all this time with other people, he can't do the stuff she wants him to do, because that's usually what she spends her time thinking about.  Mom sometimes talks about this woman to me in a defensive tone.  I asked, "do you care?"  She replies no, but I think she still has something in mind, like who's going to do stuff for her.

At the Christmas party of our martial arts club. ("R" was someone from my school I brought along because he wanted to try martial arts. He stopped after a few weeks though.)

 

Guy: "What happend to >R< anyways? You know what he's doing these days?
Me: "Yeah, he's working at a medical office."

Guy: "Ahh, ok. You know, we always thought that >R< was your boyfriend."
Me: *looking irritated*
Guy: "Eh I didn't mean it in a negative way.
Me: "No, I know. But WHY?!"
Guy: "Umm, well you see you are you*²) and then ony day you bring this guy along..."
Me: "Yeah so what? He was someone from school who wanted to try out martial arts."
Guy: "So he wasn't your boyfriend?"
Me: "No." *laughing*

 

I mean seriously WHY? O_o I still don't get it. We didn't even talk much with each other^^"

 

[*²) I'm rather quiet/introverted and prefer "male" hobbies etc. So not your stereotypical woman/girl]

I have a friend who introduced me to martial arts and now we both are really into it.  Since I was this socially awkward person who barely knows anyone, people would make jokes about us always in the same place as each other at the same time.  One guy even asked where was my other half.  The romance-repulsed person in me had to keep denying it.  We're both ace but my friend is allo-romantic, although demi, so I guess we can fit in like that as aces.

 

Also a fun conversation with two friends.

[after a few messages exchanged]

Person #1: *posts sticker of Pusheen sleeping with three z's in pink, yellow, and teal-ish blue*

Person #2: What?  Are you going to sleep?

Me: in pansexual colors

Person #2: You're right.

Me: [Person #1] is going to sleep pansexually? :lol:

(Person #1 really is pansexual.)

Person #2: How else would she do it?  I can sleep for 8 hours straight and then 4 hours gay.

Me: :lol:

Conversation with one of my sisters who doesn’t know I’m ace:

 

me: Well, he needs to move on. I have.

sister: Some people, you never get over. You just love them for your whole life even if they don’t love you. I think he is just going to love you forever. You’ll understand someday when you fall in love like that.

me: *silently calculating the impossible odds of me dating ever again let alone falling in obsessive love*

I bought it during the Memorial Day weekend sale.  I asked my friend to teach me but we haven't gotten to it.

 

I got an ace moment after karaoke.  This one girl asked me about how I knew the organizer and then school things, because some people are still in school.  I mentioned about how I started in engineering and when I was switching majors, Asian family friends and relatives keep saying to go into computer science, which was what she was studying, because good pay, but I hate programming.  She then joked, "no money, no honey."  I replied, "I don't need one."  Probably only the organizer and the other mutual friend knew what I meant.

A work colleague (Who doesn't know I'm ace) tagged me in a FB post with the following meme:

No automatic alt text available.

I responded like:

Quote

7+3x=9x+1
3x+7=9x+1
-6x+7=1 when you take away the 9x

-6x=-6 when you take away the 7

-1x=-1 So
x=1
GF=3X

GF=3

 

No idea why you are sending me algebra questions...

Of course I actually understood what the joke actually is.

I just saw a video on tumblr, it was a video of a couple on a beach. The guy was lying down with his feet up, the woman was balancing herself on the guy's feet and doing tricks... the caption said something like "this is the sexiest thing I've ever seen". I mean, that was absolutely amazing, I wouldn't be able to do that in my wildest dreams, but how on Earth could something like that be considered sexy?

I was talking with my roommate about how I didn’t really like coconut milk. She told me her friend once made her to try some kind of coconut milk that turned out to be bitter and taste like “something” specific (she made a bunch of hand motions).... I had no clue what she was talking about until she shouted “SEMEN, IT TASTED LIKE SEMEN!!!” I really felt like an ace there... ew

So I went to an orthopedist for my knee, and he says he plans to do a surgery on it by taking a tendon from a dead person and attaching it inside my bones.  I told my mom that he was going to give me a tendon.  She laughed because she knows I really like beef tendon.  Later I thought, dang, is that the only time I want meat?

GryphonLover

Last night on lunch break the break room was gossiping about ex-coworkers.  It came up that one of them who turned out to be a scuzzball had had a real crush on this one girl that is still there.  "But [name], everyone has a crush on you!" her girlfriend said.  "[Gryphonlover] doesn't!" she called back.  And I was sitting there sorting through a bunch of thoughts like: I didn't realize my ace vibes were that strong; do other coworkers have a crush on her?  Maybe I'm oblivious; and, at least she doesn't think I do, which would be awkward on several levels.

And then I was kicking myself for missing a perfect segue into "I'm ace, I don't have crushes on anyone" cause I've been looking for an excuse to come out more.  But the topic changed and the moment passed.

I should have known I was ace when my mom gave me "the talk" and my first and only question on the subject was "why on earth would anyone want to do that?"  

 

But more recently, I was writing what was supposed to be a very cute romantic scene between two characters in my novel. I was writing along, had great momentum, but then I got to a place in the scene where these two characters should kiss and I went blank. Like totally blank. Suddenly there were no words in my brain. Eventually I had to text my friend and ask her to explain kissing to me...

Me in high school:

Hetero-dude: Want to go out on a date?

Me: *while being totally not interested, can't think of a reason to NOT go on a date* Sure? Sure. I guess, sure?

 

And that is how both of my boyfriends happened.

I walked past the pharmacy on the way home and their Valentine's Day window display included some packets of condoms. I can't stand Valentine's Day, but I thought it was supposed to be about slushy-wushy romance?! this just seemed really out of place.

On the textbook ofopinionealth and physical education, it's written "People reaching the age of puberty,  they start to hope to be touched or touch the opposite sex" 

I've never understand the meaning and not yet. 

 

Most of songs are about romance, and I feel like "Et tu Brute".

 

Most of movie have bed sceans, and i thought it's for people expecting naked. 

 

Most of fortune tellers talking about love life, and I thought it's just because they have nothing to tell. 

 

My friends say my opinion is  impossible. Et quoi?

When you remember that other people use the internet to look up porn and sexy pics, but anytime you come across anything like that by accident you steer away from it.

On one of my instas I translate a french otome game and I saw a few moms follow me so I wrote a cute instastory for them greeting them. This one messaged me to tell me. "Moms still have "hot feelings" their husbands can't satisfy."

 

Me in my head:  MY MESSAGE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE CUTE!!!! Y U DO THIS???!

 

Idk while I am not repulsed by sex and the physicality of it I am repulsed by people telling me their sexual desires and feelings cause I am not their man, woman etc and idc.

Yesterday at dinner my brother (who is spoiled rotten) was trying to explain to my mom that he wanted these noodles we had one time instead of spaghetti when he asked for noodles, and he was so frustrated that he started hitting his head against the table. My mom said "*brother*, stop banging on the table. The youngest member of my family is my sister of 9, and even she laughed. I was the only one who didn't. And when I realized the sexual innuendo, I got a bit of a sick stomach for 5 seconds. A nine year old gets it, but I don't.

Friends who are parents mentioned that kid's brains rewire during puberty. There's a phase where they don't get jokes even younger siblings understand, and which they would have understood themselves before the rewiring started. If you happen to be around that age, let it be a consolation that this phase will pass. If you're already out of that age... have some cake :cake: ;-)
