ah, ok


Also equally plausible you are correct and I came to an incorrect conclusion based on me reading into something. Only real way to figure this out is you fly to DC area, attend the next meet up, We both take notes, and then we launch a survey through reasearchmatch. Because Science. I'm already drafting the grant paperwork

Bolt Bus!

Do you like NY? I can't wait until I retire so I can move out of the DC area, but we do have good music venues and food.

The origin of my sexuality is a bit muddled. I've always been repulsed at the idea of seeing a man naked (even uncomfortable around other women, despite having been taken to many nudist locations as a child). I don't know if I feel this way because it's how I was born, or because at the age of four, I experienced some things that would, once I grew up and fully understood what had happened, cause me to develop PTSD. I don't know if my asexuality is organic or induced, all I know is that the idea of seeing a disrobed male in any capacity at this point in my life fills me with severe anxiety and fear.


Your aversion to sexuality,is based on your childhood experiences.

The cure,face your fears and the anxiety and fear will lose it's grip.

Fear,Anxiety,blocks the chakras,namely the root chakra(groin).

One may feel numb and or have a overactive sex drive and or none at all.

Ongoing stomach upsets in the 2nd and 3rd chakras.

Tensions headaches,mostly on one side,due to living solely in the head and operating either from the masculine(left) and or feminine(right) .

Etc etc,due to being unbalanced and living in a state of fear.

One tends to live in a state of avoidance.

Hence people lose there ability to feel.

I'm aromantic and asexual, and have yet to meet anyone else like me in real life, whether on the spectrum or not. I feel kind of invisible sometimes. Are there any other aspie/autistics here who identify as aro, ace or both?


I'm not, but a long-time friend of mine is. She's awesome.

My romantic orientation recently changed. It is now aromantic, making me aro-ace.

I identify as ace, but I'm lesbian romantic. I've never been in a relationship though I have a huge crush on a girl I'm talking with on Tumblr, but I'm not interested in sexual stuff. I ideally just would love someone to be with in a romantic sense.
