It can be difficult for young people to tell if they are 'asexual' or 'demisexual'. Neither of these are things where you can take a blood test, they are somewhat overlapping descriptions of sexual desires.
People may lose interest in sex as a response to trauma, or a reaction to upbringing, or from physical causes related to hormone levels or thyroid function etc.
Some asexuals are quite happy. They may be aromantic and happy alone, or they may be romantic asexuals.
Some asexuals apparently have no desire for sex, but i'd say most seem to actively not want it. Romantic asexuals can have good relationships with other romantic asexuals, but will tend to make romantic non-asexuals utterly miserable as partners.1

Asexual people can be attracted to people, they just don't feel the need to have sex with them. Asexuality can come in different "degrees". Some asexual people feel no sexual or romantic attraction towards anyone. Some asexual people feel romantic attraction towards others, but don't feel sexual attraction. Some asexual people feel some sexual attraction towards others, but barely (if ever) feel the need to have sex.2
