So hi I guess I should post about my sexuality, eh?
It took me a while to figure it out, really. When I was a teenager I thought I was straight, because I was attracted to guys. Other people told me I was bi because I was attracted to fictional girls, but I figured since they're fictional they really didn't count (I tell ya, Cammy White does things to a person. Want to name me one person who ISN'T attracted to her in some way?), and it didn't really feel like it fit.
But then I realized that I'd never really been sexually attracted to anybody. It was sort of slow, but then I found out about asexuality. I'd never really thought about it before, because I'd been attracted in other ways. But the distinction between attraction and sexual attraction was something I'd always felt a divider on.
I had a boyfriend for a few months this past year. Actually for quite a while, from October to July. But kissing didn't feel right...in fact, it made me really uncomfortable to the point where I wanted to avoid being around him. And I didn't want to lose him as a friend, so I had to call it off with him. I feel bad about letting him down like that, but at the same time, I think it had to be done.
It's been identified that people with Asperger's are more likely to identify as asexual, but it's not known why. There haven't been any studies about if it occurs in higher rates in us or of we just don't feel the need to be beholden to a standard and are thus just more open about it than other groups, so it could be anything, really.
