Re: Hello - I'm no longer lurking!

My goodness, it was a very long time ago when I first posted this. I gather this forum is pretty quiet and was going to close down but is now here for another year. It is nice to come on here and simply have a look around and it's nice that its less chaotic than AVEN. To be honest, I haven't been on...

Re: Moving House

I moved a LOT of times when I was growing up, but never voluntarily. I don't even know how many times it happened. I sometimes wonder if the constant loss of budding relationships might have had something to do with me being asexual. It started long before I was a teen, so I had already learned not...

Re: Moving House

I've moved house that many times, I've been asked by folks if I have Romany blood in my veins! I certainly seem to have moving house down to a fine art - my current 'permanent address' is my 20th. I'm not planning on moving again though - the last time I did was August last year. As I was looking ro...

Re: Anyone else fed up with technology?

I do have a TV, but not one of these flat screen jobs, but I do have a digital TV box, not that I watch TV that much - the news mainly and occasionally something on catch up. I have a sound system with a radio that plays cassettes and CDs. I would love a turntable that plays my old records on but as...

Re: What do *you* think causes Asexuality?

I have no idea.

There again, we could ask this same question of what causes any type of sexuality.

Meeting to talk with my employer about Asexuality

Just so you are aware, I have also posted this thread on AVEN. I am putting it on here too as you are a thoughtful lot and I would value any insight that anyone on here can offer too. Yesterday I contacted the Equality & Diversity Team (E&D Team) at my place of work to raise awareness about ...

Re: It's not about the act

Individual ......... I kind of get the impression that your definition of Asexual is very different to my own. Quite a number of Asexuals do masturbate though - it's to do with their libido rather than being attracted to anyone - sexually, romantically or otherwise. I seem to recall hearing somewher...

Re: The concept of squish

Now go. Be quiet, at peace and happy with yourself. I am at peace and happy with myself and busy living my life thanks very much. I understand what you are trying to say, but I have to point out that many Asexuals are not part of any forum (or upon discovering they are asexual, don't stay on the fo...

Re: The concept of squish

Adding to my lack of understanding is the fact that I don't know how sexual people experiences crushes. Research time! I've heard my friends say they have a crush on someone, but I don't know what that means. For me, my crushes never compelled me to seek a relationship or sex, which is analogous to...

Re: The concept of squish

Interesting discussion. I identify as Aromantic, yet I have had what I would describe as couple of crushes/squishes – one when I was in my teens and one in my early 20s (I’m now 37). Having looked on a couple of teenage websites regarding crushes, my experience is more what they are describing there...

Welcome and I am so glad that you found us. Its so great that you have found out that you are not from a totally different planet - or if you are, that there are others from that same planet too! There is an awful lot to take in so I am not surprised your head is still spinning. It really is excitin...

Re: Hello - I'm no longer lurking!

Hey, thanks for the welcomes and it's good to be here and nice to meet some new faces and some more familiar ones. It's great that you know you're heterosexual. I think I've read somewhere here that it's hard for an aromantic asexual to know. And it's so true. I know what I'm not , but I still have ...

Hello - I'm no longer lurking!

Hello Everyone I thought I better stop lurking and introduce myself. I came across the existence of Asexuality in a newspaper article in December 2008 (when the issue of sexuality could not have been further from my mind). At the time I identified as a Heterosexual who was really happy on their own ...
