Re: The concept of squish

Coming back on my former post on this.

I have indeed no need for a romantic relationship and this is no choice and it sorts of annoys me that people think this. This is just me you know and it defines me.

Re: No sex, wtf

With other words AVEN is just a club for 'true' or 'pure' asexuals not bothering about the diversity nor the fact that every asexual experiences his/hers asexuality in his/hers own way. Not keeping in mind the sake of those we love and the general well being of every asexual. :sigh:

Re: No sex, wtf

I completely agree with you And I can also find myself in 'I don't like sex' as an individual statement is something I see as extremely positive, and obviously a lot of asexuals are going to be leading the way in owning that identity, and I try to be wary of taking away the asexual community's role ...

No sex, wtf

I'm not so very happy with 'the no sex' thing. In fact it annoys me. Seeing the new Avenues with the no sex stockings, sorry I just can't relate to it. And I'm ace as well. Moreover I ask myself how can we be taken seriously? With magazines and newspaper reporting on more asexuality due to an overse...

Re: The concept of squish

I think it arises from the mixed definitions of aromantic on AVEN. There are two definitions going around: Aromantic-1: Lack of romantic attraction (ie no crushes) Aromantic-2: Not interested in romantic relationships When prompted , most people say they like the first definition best. But people s...

Re: "I hate being asexual and want to change"

I wasn't happy at first with the fact that I could be asexual. It took me a year to come to terms with it. I think it's horrible asexuality is looked upon as a disease that can be cured. And well I may be different - and always have been different, I'm not sick. I also couldn't identify with what I ...

Re: Pre-asexuality views on sex?

I always knew I was different, but not in the sense of being lesbian or bisexual. Just an outsider. I always knew I would never marry and never have kids. And if I would have kids, it would have been adopted ones. There is this vague sort of romantic attraction towards men, but I guess I'm demi-roma...

Re: new

Hi Nancy I realize very well that I'm fortunate for being able to have real life people who accept me for what I am. It sure makes a difference. Especially as I first didn't really felt at ease at AVEN with people saying they hate sex; something I can't identify with. And at some point I thought it ...

new

Hi I'm Danielle, a 42 year Belgian woman. At the age of 40 I discovered I'm in fact asexual and aromantic. I have always known I was diffent, but not different in the sense of being gay or bisexual. I work as a secretarial aid for a gay organization and my collegues and some of our volunteers know I...

Re: Aromantic Forum

Despite the fact I'm an aromantic asexual, the idea of a forum only for aromantic asexuals doesn't appeal to me. I know it excits, but I can't be bothered. As for AVEN I don't really seem to be fit in. Maybe it's because I'm aromantic as suggested by some of you. And in a way you are right. To me it...
