In my last relationship, my partner had a lower sex drive than I did-and it really hurt our relationship.
It made me feel unattractive and over time I stopped wanting sex. We didn't last very long after that.
Now a man is interested in me and I was scrolling through his social media and saw he came out as asexual but he hasn't told me this yet. I'm concerned if it can work, not simply because he's asexual, the old me would have tried to make it work, but because I know what it's like to be sexually frustrated, I don't want to be there again. I'm also confused as to why he hasn't told me yet.
Have you ever dated an asexual person, if so, how did it go?
I'd also love to hear opinions from people who are asexual.
- I am not asexual and my partner is-intimacy was NOT an issue
- I am not asexual and my partner is-intimacy WAS an issue
- I am asexual and my partner wasn't-intimacy was NOT an issue
- I am asexual and my partner wasn't-intimacy WAS an issue

I am asexual, but not aromantic. I only had one girlfriend. At first, she said that she would respect my asexuality, but later she kept trying to seduce me and at one point tried to force herself on me. I kept telling her that I was asexual, but apparently she thought it wasn't a real thing that I was just depressed or something.
I don't think I will ever date anyone with a sex drive again.

I’ve always usually had a lower sex drive than my partner as most people I’ve been with have all been extremely high.. but I could never date a asexual I want someone I can desire who also feels same way about me it wouldn’t work.
