When I meet people now, I try to tell them very quickly that I'm asexual but Brad said some people seem to have selective hearing and don't realize I'm asexual until the 3rd time I mention it.

That or they just don't believe asexuality is a thing. Which has started to happen again since I've started meeting new people.

As curious as I am about dating as an experience, I am also not really interested in leading someone on.

Brad's been joking I've gone baby crazy... He also suggested telling everyone I'm gay to deter people which would work if I didn't also have male suitors...

I've been rejecting Angela's invitations to a date but I've still met her a lot. Other than the uncomfortable physical contact, I enjoy talking to her a lot. Her kids are cute too.

Haha, wow that sounds like an interesting experience. This comic reminds me though, have you heard of modamily? It's a coparenting site that skips marriage and romance and just helps people find people to coparent with.

I've got a male friend who also really wants to be a father. I mean, the other day we were looking up pictures of celebrity families just to see some tender family moments. He's really into tender family moments.

@Reealt: Yeah, it was pretty interesting. I've never had someone come onto me so blatantly before.

No, I have not heard of that! That sounds interesting, I'm going to check that out right now.

@roxjey: Ehhhh. It really makes me uncomfortable. I'm curious about it as an experience but at the same time, I am extremely uncomfortable, haha.

@awkpenguin: Hahahaha. The comic's more of an exaggeration. I try to worm the fact I'm asexual into conversation a little more smoothly than that. Like, say, "Are you dating anyone? Oh, that's interesting. Me, I'm asexual so I'm just curious about everyone's experience so I don't date myself."

Something like that. Sometimes people seem to completely miss the part I say I'm asexual, like Angela here.

@cstar: Aw, that's cool. Glad to know I'm not the only one eager to have a family. Are you guys still young? Still have time to think about it?

I guess, now that I think about it, I have a male friend that loves kids as well and went to school to work with kids and took part time jobs in college as a nanny or day care worker, he loved it, haha.

He's a child psychologist now and he has a family.

@daviddoesntgetit: Well, my male friend is going to be 26 soon, which is still young, but that seems to be the time when a bunch of people start getting married and having kids. Maybe he's feeling pressured?
As for me, I'm younger than he is, and at the moment I'm still entirely undecided about kids.

@cstar: 26 is young! I guess I wouldn't know, I did notice that people seem to get married and have kids around the same time as each other. My classmates were different, they all ended up going to graduate school and what not after college so marriage wasn't that immediate.

Whatever he wants.

Yeah, there's no rush. It's hard to ignore pressure but sometimes, without it, you don't move forward either. Good luck to you and your friend.
