How much interaction do you have with aces offline these days, and would you want more or less interaction?
The closest I’ve gotten to another ace offline in the last few months was a guy I’ve gone on a few dates with said two of his exes were ace. I remember feeling a strange kind of yearning. It was like meeting aces by proxy: we were intermingling and yet irreconcilably far apart.
I didn’t ask about the ace people he’d dated because it was too early to pry about exes. Instead I wondered to myself, why wasn’t I meeting aces? Where had this straight man met so many? I’m open to dating aces, but that’s not even what this is about. Where can I find them for friends? I’m sure there are ace events in the big city over from me that I’ll get around to exploring, but the thing about ace exes that got me was the proximity. It would be nice to have one of those friends that lives ten minutes away, can show up to binge watch Netflix at 1 am, and who also happens to be ace.
