Hi, I'm 25 years old and I have known about asexuality for at most 3 years.

A Pan friend told me one day… hey maybe you are asexual… then I had to ask her what an asexual was.

I asked my psychiatrist at that time if I might be an asexual, I've told me that I was confused, because a Pan friend told me… so I changed psychiatrist :D 

Is true that I have dated guys before, long relationships and all, but… I was always grossed when they wanted something more than cuddles I mean I could stand some things for the sake of the relationship, but sex… nah too much to ask.

After 2 years of therapy with my new psychiatrist, and fortunately the support of my friends, who sometimes understand this better than me tbh.

I started embracing my identity, then not long ago I found this web, because I wanted to understand the cake meme… After all I knew was that the cake is a lie

I really hope to make some friends here, I'm pretty nerd and I like games and anime.

Welcome to AVEN!

 

From what I understand, most psychiatrists don't accept Asexuality because it conflicts with their training, it's good that you found one who does.

 

The phrase "The Cake is a Lie" comes from the game "Portal" and is unrelated to Asexuality.

The Asexuality cake is because an Ace would rather have a slice of cake than sex.

You can learn about the AVEN Cake here: http://wiki.asexuality.org/Cake

 

Incidentally, it is a tradition here to welcome new members by offering cake, and here's my favourite cake,

Welcome to AVEN! 🍰🍰🍰🍰

 

I'm glad you are embracing your identity, and also super glad you managed to find a psychiatrist who is Ace friendly! I actually stopped seeing my last psychiatrist because they kept trying to "get to the bottom" about why I'm Ace to try and fix it. Telling me I'm repressed, and lying to myself, etc. That hurt a lot!

 

I'm nerdy too, high five! What kind of games and anime are you into?

Sorry to hear your original therapist wasn't supportive but great that you were able to see that and movie on. It's terrible that some people are damaged by professionals who refuse to acknowledge this is a valid sexuality.
