“(I apologize if this is long and doesn’t explain the situation very well)
Okay so my SO and I have been dating for over 2 years now, and we do have sexual interactions. Sometimes I’m just fine with it because I like feeling the intimacy with him, but other times it’s just not there for me, and I don’t know how to go about explaining this to him without making him think it’s his fault. We talked about my asexuality towards the beginning of our relationship, but it hasn’t really been brought up since then, so I’m afraid it will kind of be like a slap in the face to him. I’d just recently learned to accept my asexuality (much thanks to this group) but there’s still a lot of growth, so I still feel really awkward talking about it. Has anyone sort of experienced this and would have any insight? I would be grateful. Thank you!”
