“I used to think I was ace because I just never found anyone attractive than when I found someone I loved and finally did find attractive in every way they didn’t want to be with me because I said I might asexual and would push that point whenever someone said something they felt they were calling me a slut and they mistook it for me never wanting sex at all and they thought i couldn’t come and didn’t masturbate and he thought there was something the matter with me and that i was traumatized by something when it was really just a case of I didn’t like talking about that kind of personal stuff and also was sheltered from some basic sex ed. After he jumped to those conclusions he left me and I am still upset about it, since than i no longer enjoyed masturbating or even feel like it anymore. Can people become ace from heartbreak or being told they are broken and do they recover?”
