Anonymous asked: I'm an asexual with anxiety/depression. I was just curious as to how the tinychats are. I really want to join but I'm so scared!
The tinychats are basically just a chatroom where some people meet up. We don’t really talk primarily about asexuality, unless someone has a topic or question, or it is specifically brought up. We generally talk about things that interest us or school if we’re in it.
And sometimes we don’t even talk, some people get on their webcams and we all just sort of do our own thing, sometimes chiming in until one of us comes up with something to talk about.
Everyone I have met there so far has been incredibly nice and friendly, and also very respectful and understanding. There are even a few regulars who are there almost every time.
You can be completely anonymous there, too. You can log in with your tumblr or remain a guest. And you don’t even have to participate with the discussion or talk or anything, you can just lurk and watch whatever discussion and only chime in when you want to or until you get comfortable. So you could just join in to watch one time and see how they go for yourself, and see how you feel about it.
They’re actually very lax and laid back, as far as social interactions go. It seemed intimidating at first, but it got pretty easy to get into; there’s absolutely no pressure on your end.
