I was wondering if I am the only one thinking that the members here are very inactive.
I’m new to all this and I really just want to talk to someone who’s going/has been through the same. But no one ever replies to my messages. Either the members are inactive or its just me (I’m hoping that it isn’t just me).
Does anyone else think the same?July 20, 2017 at 4:16 am #28706AnonymousInactive
Yeah, the problem is known. Also seems lot of members are shy and don’t take much initiative.
Which is hardly surprising considering how we get treated on other social media…July 20, 2017 at 5:07 am #28708JorieSpectator
I agree — it’s kind of discouraging, but at the same time, this seems like the most active site for asexual-spectrum people. Am I wrong? Do you know of any more active sites or anything?July 20, 2017 at 3:01 pm #28709
I’ve heard of asexuality.org but I haven’t visited the site yet.
I’m trying to become a member of a couple of Facebook groups… hoping that people will be more active there.
I have only told two people about my asexuality, so I haven’t been ridiculed and honestly I don’t pay much attention to bullies on social media. Every brainless loser can post their opinion now, and their opinions don’t matter.July 21, 2017 at 2:41 am #28710JorieSpectator
I joined facebook groups too — hopefully since people are on facebook anyway, they’ll pay attention to the groups! Do you remember which groups you joined?July 21, 2017 at 4:51 am #28711RachelParticipant
Very common for ace websites to be quiet and largely inactive. A lot of factors play into that.
Ace-book.net is another dating/community site. However, I have not been there for many, many a moon. Probably will be similarly active.
Asexuality.org, otherwise known as AVEN, is the OG ace website. They have forums for support, but not intended for dating.
PS. If you are ever interested a Skype group(see in forum post), we have a nice little group of members there.July 21, 2017 at 6:25 am #28712
I’ve joined Asexual Singles and my membership request is still pending for Asexuality. Hopefully they will be more active.
I’ve thought of just becoming a member of as many groups/sites as possible just to be able to meet/talk to other aces. It really seems impossible.
There is a book: Asexual Perspectives: 47 Asexual stories: love, life and sex, ACElebration of asexual diversity by Sandra Bellamy, I’m reading at the moment. You can get it on Kindle (probably also as a physical book).
Rachel I’ll check out your Skype group. It seems like a fun thing.July 21, 2017 at 11:12 pm #28713SandraParticipant
Awww, thanks for reading my Asexual Perspectives book, yeah, it is available in Kindle or paperback here http://amzn.to/2eCLkIc Let me know what you think of the book, and if you enjoy it, please leave a review on Amazon, as it really helps other asexuals and to raise more awareness of asexuality.
Have you joined my ace dating group and friends groups yet???July 22, 2017 at 11:15 am #28714
Thank you for the info. I have sent a request to join your groups 🙂
As soon as I finish the book, I’ll leave a review. Its refreshing to read about real people and their experiences. You can relate and you can learn. Thank you Sandra.
