  1. Past hour
  2. In terms of personality, preferably someone who falls into the gap between a best friend and lover (based on the general media interpretation of the latter, at least). As for looks, it doesn't really matter much to me, but I do appreciate muscles on women, so that would be a bit of a bonus. And that's about it for my dream partner, I guess. Pretty simple.

    Stanley Cup 2019 playoffs

    Who would've thought as a Canadian, that taking Patrick Roy's last run at one with the Canadiens would be the last one this side of the border. Insane, when you think about it.

    Am I alone?

    Heteromantic ace here, and I've started thinking of myself as being demi-sensual. I haven't had any real issues aside from occasionally feeling very touch-starved and I'm not out to every single person I know, so I don't have to really worry about people making comments about my being ace. Guess I'm pretty lucky there. 🤷‍♂️
  5. I first found out about the term in my early teens and sorta identified as one, but somewhere down the line I forgot. I developed a pretty strong libido as I grew into a man and I was pretty much convinced that I wasn't asexual because of it. Years after an extremely confusing and isolated early adulthood, here I am now. Also, funny story. In my early teens I was at a church teen camp thingy and was messing around. I don't remember what happened exactly, but I remember being surrounded by some girls and they asked me if I was gay for some reason. I told them I was asexual (and butchered the pronunciation lol) which made them think that I flirt with ovens or something. That's what they actually asked me. And that question was just as awkward and weird as you'd expect.

    I finally found a group to dance with in my current city!  I'm so excited, I think that could do swing outs for days!

    Hi! I'm new!

    Welcome! That's part of why we exists. It's ok to be apprehensive, I think a lot of us are when we first come here. There are lots of people's questions and stories you can find just ghosting around the forums, even if you don't feel like posting and asking much yourself. Also, per AVEN tradition, let me be the first to offer you cake!

    Questions about asexuality

    1) Male 2) Hmm... around 16-17 I started wondering if I was bi because I experienced aesthetic attraction towards guys, but I didn't hear or learn about asexuality until about a year after I graduated high school (so, about 18), and after I did it just clicked. 3) Single 4) 22 5) Change my sexuality? Sorry, but I can't help but feel like this question was poorly worded. But to answer as the question is written: No 6) No 7) The only relationship I've been in was before I realized that I was ace, so this question doesn't apply to me 8 ) I'd be more likely to be pressured into smoking or drinking- neither of which I'm ever likely to do. 9) Not really, no 10) 45 (don't really care about sex on general, but not comfortable with the idea of actually sleeping with someone)

    I am now is a happy sex - free relationship with a younger guy! Feels like we have know each other ages, he lives locally, and it's great. We spend hours video chatting and have tons in common. I met him at my friend's 50th birthday party - I am younger than my friend. And it feels wonderful to finally have my guy after all these years of searching for him, since 2014. About 5 years.

    BREAN THEME PARTY BIRTHDAY MEETUP CANCELLED TODAY. My Asexual best friend injured his foot and had to go to the hospital yesterday for an Xray and have it strapped up. Thankfully it is a bad sprain and not broken. So we can't go to the theme park today. We are having a meal in Exeter and going to watch the 11.35pm performance of End Game too. (Not expecting any more attendees for this particular meetup - but just in case you were thinking of coming, it's now the day itself.)

    The asexual pre-birthday celebration last night went really well, and the Chinese meal we had was great.

    Potentially conflicting definitions of asexuality

    I voted for both, and yet I'm still somewhat open to the possibility of relationships/sex despite no "desire" or "attraction". It's a queer tangle in my poor little brain.

      Glad that you liked it, I have not seen any of the Avengers movies and hardly any Marvel ones at all.

    Dahlia the lab and her pet chick!

    The chicks do have a nice home with other chicks. I just take them out to visit with the other pets sometimes. Dahlia wouldn't hurt a flea...she is big but very gentle. And I just added some music to jazz it up a bit. The chick was not peeping any more than usual. I like animals and it is never my intent to hurt anyone of them.

    Potentially conflicting definitions of asexuality

    I'm far less confused by the terms "attraction" and "desire" than I am with "wanting". I'm just speaking for myself; I appreciate some people think differently than me.

    I hope you can be your true self as often as possible! Being trans is a mental health bind because masking is bad for it but so is feeling unsafe

    Hi! I'm new!

    Hi! So, I was googling around and found this site. I am a little apprehensive, but I want to pick y'alls brains a bit and maybe get some answers. I am married, a mom or two kids, and believe I might be slowly gearing towards asexualism. I am new to this idea and just wanna hear some stories from other women or men who know of or have had similar circumstances.
  21. Well life would certainly feel like twice as long if I had to be in a relationship

    There won't be move toward an impeachment. The Dems understand that would waste time when they should be concentrating on the election in 2020.

    I have to be myself more often, presenting as male is not good for my mental health.

    Potentially conflicting definitions of asexuality

    Forget the "attraction" business; it just leads you into a maze of confusion and argument, as does the "desire" business. Asexuality = not wanting to have sex with any other person. Period.

    How not to answer a newbie

    Have you come across every single of the 7 billion people in the world and yet still are not attracted to anyone? If not, you probably have not found the right one so you should not argue against those people who say so. How should I combat the invisibility of my asexual identity?
