Because orientation matters. I've used this analogy loads of times before -
Asexuals pursuing relationships with non-asexuals is like a hetero guy chasing a lesbian. There are clear differences in what each partner wants, and one partners orientation does not take precedence over the others.
If I had an asexual partner, why should I go without sex just because she doesn't want any? But I also can't see myself forcing her into something she doesn't want to do. I want my partner to want to be intimate with me, not see it as some chore or obligation.1
