What is the best reaction you’ve had to coming out as ace? How would you want someone to react?
I don’t have any great coming out stories myself but I’d like to think someone out there has a story where they felt understood and supported when they shared who they are. In the past I’ve disclosed to potential dates that I’m not going to feel sexually attracted to them and it’ll take a while to figure out if I even like them. That’s just my normal. Everyone I’ve said this to has accepted my asexuality with polite confusion or pleasant disinterest (my asexuality didn’t impact their thoughts of me), which are all relatively good responses I think. My asexuality is respected as important but not a huge deal.
