Do you have ace friends? Do you want more?
I used to have offline ace friends but recently noticed that I don’t anymore. We drifted apart for typical reasons and lost touch. Very little of our conversations were about asexuality. In retrospect it feels like a lost opportunity. Right now I only talk to aces online. I don’t notice it much because I have several queer friends and they are always up to talk about the many ways people experience sexuality (or don’t). One of my straight guy friends is an amazing listener and always up for hearing about how much I am repulsed by my dates. He finds it humorous and I find his interest strangely endearing. Even if I shared because I was frustrated I always leave our chats feeling like that’s just who I am and it’s okay. It would be nice though to have someone to talk to about an asexual experience and they respond, I get it.
