*Meets old friend from elementary school in a waiting room*

Him: Hi there! Viv is that you?

Me: Oh, hi! Yep that's me.

Him: You're looking a lot better than when you are younger.

Me: You are too.

Him: I'm married now. We're going into couples therapy.

Me: *Awkward silence - he's the same age as me* I'm... going to college. I'm going to be a writer.

Him: Oh wow. *nurse comes* Well, see you later.

Me: *Dies inside cause I'm ace and nowhere close to married* Uh, see you.

And that my friends foretells the tale of how I met my good friend from elementary school and ended up super flabbergasted at the fact that people are my age are getting married at 22, and I'm still single. But hey - single for life party, right? ;D

viv, I go away to the forest and bears and a cougar and a family---finally getting acquainted with something called "hughesnet" which features a total of two bars of satellite wifi goodness if I am lucky and I see this totally interesting conversation.  Sorry for being a 58 year old geezer guys but I am glad to be back and I love you all and you are even better then my bears.

Hope to hear more from you soon!

It's weird to see on FB that a few of my classmates started having kids. I was like, you're that ready?!. Mentally tho
I saw a couple of my classmates get married. I was like well, those two have known each other for a long time. Plus with their occupations, I can see it working out well.

I once saw my best friend in middle school at the college bookstore. I work there part-time. I wanted to reconnect with him but I couldn't find or ask him. It was a busy day so I couldn't stop to chat. QQ
Then I see classmates I don't recognize and that feels weird. Like they'll recognize me but I'm like "I was remembered?" . In high school, I didn't leave much of a strong impression being the shyest, quietest, introverted bean I am.  I've gotten better socially now but I still get anxious around people in general.

I have this little fear of certain people recognizing me bc I don't want to be annoyed or bullied again. I admit that's horrible of me to say. 
Me, I'm fine with being single right now. I do, one day, want the chance to explore romance. QQ That was sappy but feels good to get off my mind.

Ahaha I know the feels XD Most of my friends aren't married yet though, but I do have a friend who's engaged :'D I plan on living with my best friend in the future in a platonic relationship, or at least as some kind of union of partnership - both of us are single, and are not too invested in romance, so we figured: what the heck, we'll live together ;P

I see a lot of people I used to be friends with, or at least acquaintances with back in high school. x'D But I never actually met somebody who was married, or talked about their fiance. So that was new for me XD lol All the more reason to embrace being single, am I right? ;P

I get that fear sometimes about these group of 4-5 girls that I met in elementary school. They harassed me - and they harassed me enough to give me a disability :stare: It's because of them that my brain just totally went "kaput" on my math in 4th grade XD I remember very clearly, the desire to do multiplication - and then suddenly, BAM, no more math skills :'D It's horrible lol

I really like it personally when people recognize me (if I like them of course), but I have horrible anxiety for running into any of my co-workers or my boss at the store. XD

Single party for life x'D At least in my case ;P  No worries man, I am ruler of sappy-land <3

That sounds like an exciting opportunity. It's a good feeling to have when one is expecting a good change around the corner. Friendships! XD

For me, the majority of my classmates and friends have moved away. I know some of my culinary school buddies are here in this state. It's like I'm alone but at least there are these friends I can chill with. It's strange.

Embrace being single? I just thought of hugging myself or a dancer saying he/she doesn't need two to tango. Then that thought train went off the tracks. I get what you're saying and I agree. Single life is not all bad bc it gives one time to discover oneself. Furthermore, it provides an opportunity to gauge what kind of friends you're comfortable with. This builds up courage and potential for a chance in romantic endeavors.

That does sound horrible. Interesting if this disorder specifically pertains to math. Imo, my bullies made me shyer especially towards girls. One bully tried to be friends with me after she constantly harassed me for being Asian, shy, and a loner. That was a "NO" moment for me. I expected an apology but that's assuming too much; you just don't switch lids like that. It's bullshit. One of the hardest things I taught myself/learned from my bullies is forgiveness towards my enemies and myself. 

Single party? Is there pizza, cookies from the dark side, and fizzy sodas? XD I'm somewhat spontaneous today.

Yesss I know~  I've never met a person more like me haha XD He's great :heart:

I didn't have a lot of friends growing up, but ones I did have - stuck around here and went to college here XD So I've  seen them around c:

Bwahahaha what an image! Haha I agree. My whole life is all about  discovering more about myself and embracing my oddities. I've always been very career-oriented anyway, and want to focus on that even before I think about romance. I have a very difficult life ahead of me - but it doesn't matter, I take it by stride 8D

I actually did recently take a psychological test for it - thinking I had something like Dyscalculia or something - turns out, it's actually worse than Dyscalculia. In my brain, I am completely halted to do math past 4th grade in my head (some multiplication, yes - the rest - not so much. Very difficult) but I can still do algebra and geometry with a calculator - it takes extensive one-on-one tutoring every single day, constant studying, and a lot of patience. Algebra comes easier for me, than geometry by a lot shot. I actually even like algebra, and find it fascinating. Deep down, I've always enjoyed math, but I find it forever frustrating XD

I definitely was a loner growing up as well - and I might  always be in a sense, even if I have friends now. Most people just find me too weird XD Well, can you blame me? My life is weird :lol: 

Yessssss all the fizzy sodas <3

On the topic of being ace aro
I sort of came out to my one friend because we had been discussing romance via texting the other day and we we were talking about how they'd find someone someday and how I was content by myself and romance isn't my thing and then today I said I want to sleep forever and later said I want to be aromantic sleeping beauty so only my dog would be able to wake me up
They found the idea of an aro sleeping beauty pretty funny but I already knew that they'd be accepting because they're an agender gay
So I'm like ninety-nine percent sure that they got the message that I'm aro

Dude that's awesome :) I'm so happy for you :tighthug: My own coming outs with my own sexual orientation have been a success, even if most people just think somehow that I'm gay, or come to that  conclusion eventually XD :shrug: I'm actually half tempted to start calling myself that for kicks :'D But my sexual orientation is honestly a horrible mess half the time. I change a ton. It never seems to end. I might just one day throw up my hands and start calling myself a lesbian XD But that feels awkward too. Everything feels awkward except being called Asexual XD

honestly I'm fourteen and hate people so I might be a lesbian because girls are attractive but just the concept of romance/sex makes me uneasy and I really just can't imagine myself in a relationship like that

:huggle: Honestly, when I was your age, I felt very similar. Though I was constantly conflicted with what I wanted. I've actually been in a lesbian relationship before - it's very nice, and I have a lot of fun with it - but my own changing feelings alarms even the most patience lesbian. It used to be my dream to be with a girl - now-a-days, I'm just sorta like: "did that, tried it, didn't work. Guess I'm aro/ace." XD 

But I just wanna say too - that life has it's real reel at getting you to realize who you are XD Never expected I would be aro/ace or at least something of the variety. Some people think they are aro, and realize they are lesbians. Other people think they are lesbians, then realize they are aro. Some people just know from the get-go. Either way, I always think it's important to keep your options open because you might surprise yourself. :shrug: I'm mainly speaking from personal experience though XD

Well hey, I hate to be that person, but if they're in couples therapy, then maybe getting married at 22 wasn't such a good idea? :'D
