“I am demisexual and started dating someone who is Grey-asexual. We have a great relationship and a great understanding of each other. No worries there.

After we had been dating awhile and started to develop a deep emotional connection we found we are both sexually attracted to each other. He says I’m the only person he’s ever been sexually attracted to, and it’s new and exciting. Again, no issues there.

The issue is with my friends. I tried explaining to them how our relationship and how sexual attraction works. They are claiming he is being “manipulative”. “Come on, do you REALLY believe he’s the only person he’s been sexually attracted to?” stuff like that.

What do I say to them and how can I educate them?”
