I don’t know about you, but I kind of miss the “good old days” of the internet. Back when people could actually be authentic and not have to censor themselves constantly. But technology has changed so much in the past few years that it’s become increasingly difficult to share something deep and meaningful.
It wasn’t until I started talking to other people in the ace community that I realised how much I missed that. I noticed that there aren’t many people talking about what it’s like to navigate friendships and relationships as an asexual person. So thought it would be the perfect time to start my own!
My main goal for this blog is to raise awareness for the asexual community, and also provide support for those who are still learning about themselves and their sexuality.
Here are some topics I am hoping to write about:
- learning about your sexuality
- general advice for asexual people
- making asexual friends online and in real life
- tips and tricks for ace people using online dating sites
- spotlighting members of the asexual community (“face of ace”)
- personal experiences on navigating friendships and relationships as an asexual
- discussing different levels of the spectrum (demisexuality, gray-a, etc.)
- thinking about how sexuality impacts other areas of your life
- finding happiness and accepting your sexuality
- success stories of ace relationships
Though I’m still thinking of new ideas every day, so stay tuned! If you have any more suggestions, or even a story to share, then please feel free to reach out to me any time. I’ve set up a basic submissions page if you want to get involved. But for now, I’m just looking forward to starting this journey and seeing what comes of it. So I hope you will join me on this “ace” adventure!
