Hello, all!

Post by unpolished_pearl on Fri Aug 24, 2012 3:54 pm

Hello, DemiGrace community, good to be here.

I'll be upfront and just state for the record right now: up until a little over a week ago, I had very little knowledge of the asexual spectrum. I thought, either you're ace or you're not. The end, that's it. But I got curious, and I started looking up definitions and I realized something.

See, I've been calling myself "queer" for the past few years, because it felt like the most apt way to describe my sexuality. But it still didn't quite fit. I almost wept with joy when I read up on demisexuality, because finally I had something that worked. It explained so much; why I've never had any solid interest in anyone (save for one guy I was close to in high school, but that's a very long, somewhat pathetic story), why I can't imagine living the way most of my friends do, hooking up all the time... For years I thought something was wrong with me, that there had to be some wires that got crossed somewhere, but now I know.

I'm still learning quite a bit, so if I say something out of line at any time please don't hesitate to point it out. I don't want to hurt anyone (although rest assured it would be entirely unintentional!) and I'd really appreciate the constructive criticism.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here. Thanks for reading!

Thanks!

I'm actually leaning a bit more towards Gray-A now, but everything still stands; nothing else really works, I get the whole "oh, you just haven't found the right person" bit whenever I try to come out... It's still new and I'm trying to piece together my identity and stand with it even when everyone around me doesn't believe that it's really a thing. It's frustrating.

But I'm glad I have this site to come to.

(Sorry if this isn't 100% coherent, it's been a long couple of days and I'm about to go to bed. drunken )
