Demisexuality and Mental Health, dreading dating.

7. Are there any topics not necessarily directly related to asexuality, that you find uncomfortable partly because of your asexuality? […] Can you think of any way they might be handled that would make you more comfortable, or would you prefer that people just not bring them up?

I dread the very thought of dating. It’s taking me a year, and talking about it here, for me to be alright with it.

I still don’t talk at all about NOT having had sex for a decade when the human race in general is at its most sexual, with other people. NOT having had relationships in a time when peers did. I still do NOT like to think what assumptions people have made, if any, about me because they haven’t seen me having any relationships.

What’s been a great comfort? Information and the internet. Other people speaking of their sexuality. See some of my first posts for links…

As for dating, I’m considering trying out Ace dating and mixed-sexuality dating as well as regular dating. There’s a couple of events each year in my country, apparently… Now I just need to find the time…
