Eh, I've been trying to tell my parents not to count on grandchildren but they just pretend they didn't hear and raise the question again later....

I'm so thankful for my parents right now...

I'm not ace, but I understand that the ace community faces plenty of challenges socially and personally both similar and different from other sexualities.

I've recently realized that I'm demisexual-panromantic which is fine, but in my younger years, when boys were immature and hard to relate to and therefore bond with. So I was only feeling sexual attraction to a few of the girls that I knew. So I eventually talked to my mom, nervous as I was I said I was bi despite feeling like I was possibly gay. My mom, being a mom, seemed to sense what I really meant and replied, "I'll admit, I don't really approve for religious reasons, but you are my kid and I'll love you no matter what. I'll love any partner you have that treats you right. And I do want grandkids so at least consider adopting, okay?" That conversation managed to repair a big rift in our relationship. And I have since had many relationships both sexual and non but mostly non which many did find strange in a world where people assume if you date someone for more than a day you've had sex.

Anyway, I don't mean to make this about me or down play your struggles as ace. My point was there's parents and people who understand and don't care. If your family doesn't ever understand or approve, then find out build a "family" that will. There's plenty of reasonable and understanding people out there.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us! This wonderfully well written and well drawn!
