I'm an extremely sexual person but my girlfriend is asexual. How do we make it work? Any experiences or advice of any asexuals people out there?

I'm not asexual, but I'm demisexual so maybe I can help here. Here are some questions to ask her and yourself: Is she repulsed by sex or indifferent to it? Does she get aroused (some asexuals do)? Do you think you can abstain from sex or have sex less? Do you feel like your attraction to her is more romantic/ platonic or sexual/ physical? Communication and honesty is especially important, and the both of you shouldn't be pressured to do anything that you guys don't want to. My ex-boyfriend never told me how he felt that his attraction towards me was stunted because we rarely did anything sexual, but I knew from his actions that he cherished me anyway, so I feel like these relationships can work if you guys are honest and willing to compromise (but not be pressured into anything).1
