This was fantastic. I identify heavily with this article and she talks about so many things I'm feeling in a way that I could never convey. I'm a 27-year-old virgin and I had a minor emotional breakdown in the middle of a bar this past Saturday while trying to explain to a friend just what the eff is going on in my life right now. I identify as gay-ish but I just don't get crushes/attraction very often. I have a pretty major crush right now on someone and it really is the first time in maybe four years that I felt anything more than friendship with someone. AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH THIS SAID CRUSH. Even so, I like the idea of kissing them but sex itself is just not on the top of my mind. I feel so weird all the time because everyone seems to date all the time. That just doesn't sound fun to me at all. But, the idea of being alone forever just makes me sad and I don't like it. Anyway, so many feelings!
I don't come from a super similar background but now this has me thinking of the "whys" a lot more than I ever did before. My mom and dad were never together but my mom and step-dad have been living together for most of my life, just in a mostly sexless, attractionless relationship that I will never understand. :/
