    You have just put into words the problem I have with these fancy do's. My city held its annual Pride event last yesterday, not that it was a priority of mine. I passed through it on the way to the hospice I volunteer at, stopping on the way and back for a pint to stimulate the feeling of "meh, good for them." Two year's before, I did the same business sans drinking, and got worked up how everybody were soaking up the atmosphere.

    The real problem is, I'm not good at networking or keeping face to face connections, or how most people within my age group already have an edge over me. There's a will in those people to show off that extraversion in public and my closest pals live quite far to keep up with the social fare regularly than I do being a face on a computer monitor.

    I could make somebody an awesome partner if only I have the chance.

    I know this thread hasn't been posted in for a while, but I thought I might as well try and join in if that's ok

    I think I may be at least asexual (nudity is weird ok) and I guess bi-curious for now. I'd probably rather try dating someone of same sex at the moment now though. I have noticed I do tend to find female bodies (fully clothed) more aesthetically pleasing so that is the entirety of my evidence towards it

    I re-evaluated a little on this one. Although I'd still class as the bi side it seems to be more Pansexual is the way I feel about people. As gender or looks don't really matter to me. I feel more attracted to peoples personality and this has been working out quite well recently.
    Heres to a new year of discovery. Cheers for opening it up again @Bexy164 and I hope you find what your looking form.

    Well it's also rather offensive to use the word trap, at least every trans friend I have is pretty upset by people using it so, maybe if you do talk to them, don't say that.

    It can be confusing, I'm straight but I've had more than one crush on a MtF friend, they still tease me about it occasionally. But at the end of the day it's still an attraction to a woman.

    As a demigender male that does mix and match gender clothing, it's no less insulting. It was a term coined by cismales with fragile egos who think people only do it to "get" them out of some sort of spite. It's really not polite to use it.

    It's not "political", it's just people's lives. We don't do it to be someone else's fetish.

    I need a friend with benefit, and I need it before my boring life resumes in the summer.

    That moment where one half of you is "this is why I'm in the closet" and the other half is "this is why if I had a backbone I'd put my cards on the table right now"

    Out with the crew and one of them is talking about some event and that a room was open for sharing, sleeping on the floor, whatever.
    "But.. J? He's gay! Sharing a sleeping space ey ey be careful lol"
    I mean
    They're friends and it's light hearted etc but it still makes you feel like you'd be somewhat unwelcome in the same sleeping space as other males if they know your sexuality, or they'd avoid inviting you (which I've seen)

    I was >< this close to just coming out as bi and explaining that I have actually known since I was about 15 and in the 19 years since have not raped anyone nor know of any disproportionate figures of rapes from homosexuals but one of the others beat me to the "he's not a rapist" comment. It was still like 5-10 minutes of "lol gay people all want to have sex with everyone" bantz. Very uncomfortable. Of course if you point this out nowadays you get dismissed as "an SJW". ,

    People are surprised at the voice the right wing has gained recently but talking to ordinary people offline - I'd say our leftie stuff is still very much the minority. "They're just saying what everyone else is thinking!" was dismissed as a bigoted comment but I'm getting more and more convinced that it's sadly true.
    Being anything other than straight is still seen as abnormal and the only reason it's not vocalised outside the pub is that the left have had control of laws and communication rules for so long.

    Bit of an update for me I guess?
    I'm pretty sure I'm asexual now.
    This somewhat confirmation comes from the fact that I've been talking to other and realising how differently they look at things. I'd never really thought about it much, but the idea that people see people just randomly and there's like an attraction there was just a strange idea to me. I don't quite know how to describe it, but its just something I don't really understand. I do see people and think they look aesthetically pleasing, but nothing more than that.
    Also I tried having a girlfriend. It lasted 3 days. She told me she felt she couldn't really date a girl. I'm over it.
    Wouldn't mind trying dating again sometime, maybe it could be more successful

    That's great you've tried things and feel a bit clearer about what you're interested in. Just a minor thing to bear in mind is that your feeling might change later on - I'd say don't dismiss anything like that, do allow yourself to explore it, even if it seems out of the blue and completely unfamiliar. This isn't me saying "there's no such thing as asexual, you just haven't met the right person yet" and I'm hoping it doesn't sound like that at all. I'm just basing this off my own personal experience as I never had much more thought beyond wanting to spend a lot of time around someone and hug them a whole load, until fairly recently - and I'm in my early 20s. So it's not completely out of the bounds of possibility of that being the case with you. But it's also possible you are indeed asexual, of course.

    I hope that doesn't sound dismissive of what you've said, I just recognise the situation from how you've described it, so I wanted to add a bit in about my own experience so that hopefully you might not fixate on that idea and try to suppress anything that doesn't fit in with that idea (not that I'm saying you'd try to do that. I'm saying that's what idiot me did.)

    On a more general note, I've found recently that you learn stuff about yourself a lot more quickly if the person you like actually likes you back. And 'joke flirting' with your mates, whether you do or don't like them is another fairly harmless way of working out what you like.

    I'm sure that stuff's super obvious, but I'd never really put it into practice before. I've also heard that being happily single helps you in any future relationships you might have, but I've not tried it so I've no idea.

    Oh I know, I'm so terrified of saying something and then actually changing my mind later.
    I currently identify as probably asexual may be a better way of putting it.
    I guess I just want to figure it out as everyone else seems to know and be so sure. I've got a friend who's younger than me and theyalready know they're trans and gay

    Good, I'm glad you're aware that you can change your mind. I've come out as quite a few different things in the past and later realised that it doesn't quite fit. Nobody's ever really brought anything up to me though when I've changed my mind. I think people maybe realise that it would just be embarrassing and deeply unhelpful to bring up.

    I have had feelings that I am possibly asexual, either that or pansexual but I'm still unsure; it kinda helps that my boyfriend complicated close friend is also having the same dilemma between pan and ace, we can sort of bounce back between each other haha
