“My fellow Aces, I am twenty-five years old, and just recently entered a relationship with a man who is not ace. Things are going smoothly for now, but I am always super anxious that he will expect more from me than I am ready to give. I have always had a difficult time opening up to anyone, and trusting them with really anything about myself. I have always felt like my perspective of the world and relationships has altered my ability to judge whether or not I overreact, or shut down… Any support and advice would be helpful.”
