Fancy seeing you here....my partner in crime(fighting?) has followed me to the sunny hills and beyond, it was only a matter of time.

Welcome!

Re: Poly

The question: are you all romantic? Even being romantic, you may try aromantic relationships like close friendship, with the advantage that friendship is poly by default, contrary to romance. So I would prefer remaining single and forge close friendships with them, but I am aromantic, and there may...

Re: Poly

I was going to make a thread about polyamoury but I see there is one so I'll post here. I've been thinking a lot aout this recently. I'd heard about Polygamy ages ago but never had any thoughts towards, apart from "fair enough, not for me but fine for others as long as they're happy" but I...

Re: What weird things have you seen or done lately?

I'm trying to watch every film released in 2006, for the past week and a half, 20+ hours a day, I'm about to watch "thank you for smoking" I can't remeber half of them but a lot of good ones have come up wow. I worked in an independent cinema for part of 2006 where I'd watch a couple of f...

Re: What weird things have you seen or done lately?

That definitely qualifies as weird. (Of course, now I am really wondering what your surname might be ... LOL!) Oh, well it's Scottish, and has "ech" in with the "ch" pronounced how it is as in "Loch", but people say it as "etch" (or spell it as eck). Or they ...

Re: What weird things have you seen or done lately?

In the last few weeks I've met (i.e in real-life) and become vaguely familiar with a man with the exact same name as me. I won't say my surname here but believe me it's very rare and I'd literally never met another person with it my whole life (apart from family obvs.) until this guy, and then he go...

Re: San Francisco Pride Parade, June 27th

I went to the London pride 2 years ago, I must admit I didn't particularly enjoy it. There was lots of noise and people dancing, was ok for a bit but started to grate on me after an hour or so. Can't see me wanting to go again, but didn't notice any hostility at all. There was a guy with an ace t-sh...

Re: Recent "research" in the asexosphere

The HPOA videos? Personally I don't know if I'm just a massive xenophobe but I only watch the 3 ones with English people in them, I just find them engaging individuals. Oh and that new chap, shineroth or something. But I agree, even if I don't watch much of them, they're good for visibility so respe...

Re: The Creation of a Flag

I think the PT has to shoulder a lot of the blame. I mean they didn't get involved because they were against the idea but there was about an 80% in favour margin in all votes, so it was clear that there was a mandate for it going ahead with or without them. They really should have put aside their pe...

Re: The Creation of a Flag

I feel a bit guilty cos I voted for the one that won (the 4 horizontal stripes) but it was my second choice (behind Macs from Asylums one) so maybe I shouldn't have voted for it but I was under the impression that there'd be another round of votes to come with the top 2 or 3 or 4 and people having j...

Re: Thought i'd stagger over this way

Hello Ninny.

Welcome to A-Positive, hope you enjoy it here.

Oh and whilst I'm here, "Big Up" to you and Sassy for that relationship video on youtube, it was great (and thanks for answering a couple of my questions).

Re: What makes Europe so special?

Roy's right about the CCTV, the only time you notice them is in shops and town centres in general. The shop I used to work at had four, and they were well needed (the owner developed a penchant for hiring people, firing them for little or no reason and then consequently had to deal with graffiti, an...

Re: Casual or Short-Term Dating

I don't know about other people's defintions of "casual dating" but for me I've had a few phases of just going out with girls for one, two maybe 3 dates, usually when I want someone to go to see a particular film with or I just want the feeling of having nice female company on an evening. ...

Re: Could you love/have a relationship with a mtf/ftm asexual?

I think Siggy is being way too harsh. Many people have trouble with the correct terminology but this doesn’t mean their heart is in the wrong place. I often get confused with the terms “trans-man” and “trans-woman” and which is which. Plus I only recently knew what “cis-gendered” meant cos lets face...

Re: Could you love/have a relationship with a mtf/ftm asexual?

Well he does mention "an asexual relationship" but anyway even if they don’t have sex it could still be an issue in an asexual relationship. You can see and be aware of your partner’s genitals even if you never have sex with them, especially if you have a live-in relationship and share the...

Re: I was never sure about A-positive...but now I'm certain

Don't worry the weird perception was just in my head, I'm sure others on AVEN don't feel the same. Anyway I am definitely an "indifferent" ace, and have had sexual relationships, I'm actually not sure currently if I ever would compromise again in the future as the sexual aspect of my last ...

Re: I was never sure about A-positive...but now I'm certain

I don't know, I think there was a thread featuring feminist discourse and asexuality ages back on AVEN and there were a few links/mentions of A-positive so that was probably how I got the association, and I just added 2 and 2 to get 5. I haven't really heard anything much like that, just something t...

Re: Could you love/have a relationship with a mtf/ftm asexual?

I've given this a bit of thought before too. I would totally be fine with a mtf asexual partner (or even sexual to some degree if I was in love with them and we could find some compromise tho that would be pretty difficult I imagine). I find females phsically attractive so as long as they had what I...

I was never sure about A-positive...but now I'm certain

I've been on Aven a year or so but was always slightly put off to go on A-positive, for some reason I got the impression from the mentions of it on Aven that it would be full of raging feminists arguing non-stop (not that I have anything against feminists of course) and that it was ultra-heavy.
