  • I could date a woman who did not have a string libido but was willing to have sex for the intimacy and to keep me satisfied, but if there is no sex at all. . . how is this different than having a best friend of the opposite sex?

  • No because I'm aromantic and I'm asexual too.

  • As many others I'd consider that friendship.
    Half-assed kiss without the sexual attraction wouldn't feel the same.
    There's also the matter of sexual activities.

    You're better of living a good friendship life with someone than a "Conveniant" love life.

    I can't deal with that. I need some sort of sexual contact in order to to feel fully connected.

  • I COULD, but... i wouldn't. I'd feel like she wasn't sexually attracted to me which is a HUGE deal breaker. Besides, i love sex. I'm not joining a monastery so i refuse to live sexless, life's too short for that b. s.

  • I don't understand why it's even called asexual, asexual means you can reproduce by yourself, you're just not interested in sex.

    • Its no problem, we dont have that much representation

    • Well to answer your question I would only date someone who was asexual if we had some type of agreement where I would be able to have sex with someone else

  • Then it would called friendship

  • Not a chance. Those people are called friends. Women are only good for sex. And now that they give it up so easy it's not even worth being with one if she's not putting out.

  • I too find the idea of sexual intercourse itself, with either gender, unappealing, and I'd go for someone who was okay not doing it in a heartbeat. But I still like to cuddle naked, touch, hug, kiss, and do other things? Does this make me asexual? Do you completely avoid anything sexual (i. e. cuddling naked) or just intercourse itself? Curious.

  • I can't really answer your question because logic tells me that if you're asexual, you aren't interested in really a relationship. I don't mean that to sound funny - I'm actually interested in your answer. What part of being intimate does it limit to? Will you kiss but not have sex? Does it mean no touchy-feely either?

    For example, if you were in a relationship with someone, and they said, "You know what, I love you but I need sex. I'm going to go have sex with someone else and just come home to you and be your partner in all other ways." Would something like this be okay or would it hurt you? Would you be jealous and not want them having sex with someone? Are your non-feelings for sex also disconnected in relating what someone else does with their sex life?

    I'm trying to put this in to perspective for me to understand. Such as, my husband loves to go fishing. I don't. So to fulfill his fishing needs and desires, he goes with a friend. I don't care. Fishing does nothing for me. I'll see him in six hours. When he comes home, he's all mine again. Is that sort of what you might feel if your partner wants sex but not love from someone else?

    • Actually I've found that relationships like this actually lead to a lot of deep emotional connection and trust

    • I need sex too much to be able to cope with a non-sexual relationship.

    • Thats a fine opinion

  • YES and YES! I am asexual myself and hope to one day meet a fellow asexual and spend my life with them!

    However, if I would date someone who wanted to be with me, but just had sex with others. I don't really care about sex in the slightest and I'm dating that for the friendship and romance.. not for the sexual intimacy. However, a relationship like that rarely ever works... So, it's just better for me to date an asexual.

  • Wanting to spend time with someone but not interested in romantic/sexual activity wouldn't really be dating, I'd consider that a friendship.

    • there's a difference between sexual and romantic attraction, so you can date someone and do all the romantic things, just without the sex.
