As Pride approaches…

Ace as gluten-free cake. 💜🖤🤍

That was my tag line with online dating. Most never understood what it meant or they just didn’t care to read or understand it.

With Pride coming up, I want to share some things about dating as an ace, especially as an ace dating an allo person. It can be challenging at times and there is a lot of anxiety on my end (I guess that is why I was gifted with the “ace and anxious” shirt that I’ll wear proudly at the Pride parade on 4 June). I’m lucky to have an understanding partner and I’m beyond grateful.

It’s hard talking to most people about my anxiety since aces make up 1% of the population and asexuality is a spectrum. Gray Ace, Demisexual, etc. I’m lucky there are groups out there and I can share my anxieties. Many have been where I’ve been and it’s okay.

Not everyone will understand me, but the ones that do, they are my village. ❤️
