I can't say I'm not interested but the older I get the less important it seems to be to me.

I'm ACE, but I DO want someone. It's hard because eventually that always comes up - and I consider it unfair of me to make someone go without anything, so I just end up leaving them.

For those of you that don't really understand; that's normal, too. But being ACE isn't being celibate. We just dont have any inclination. It's not like it's a choice so much as it just is.

When I started high school all my friends started talking about it and in my mind I just figured I was slow to the uptake. Now that I'm well out of school I finally get it, and it wasn't a jarring realization or anything. But it still hurts a bit when my friends say things like "Oh, you've just never been with anyone so you'll get it eventually" or my family thinking "It's a phase" like I'm some preteen. We DO exist just like everyone else. It's not really a choice - I can definitively say.

At a glance I thought the title of this thread was "Are you an aromatic asexual?" and I had to share that.

Does conjugated pi-bonding preclude romance? Maybe the two aren't mutually exclusive.


Sorry, all-nighter == goofy humor.

Totally read that as aromatic sexual and thought this was about someone who gets turned on by scents.

Nope! I'm far from aromantic and asexual or boring.

Please give me your powers. I don't want to have sexual or romantic interest anymore. Sex is gross and romance is something I need to avoid for personal reasons.

You're asking the wrong person, if you're asking me. I'm not an aromantic asexual.

Asexual, however not Aromantic - I could careless about sex. I do see beauty in a persons (man or woman) appearance as any figure is art but that is about as far as it goes for me.

However, to respond to someones statement about whether or not you masturbate deems if you are not Asexual. Masturbation in itself can be used as a stimulant of chemicals in your body that relieves stress in your daily life. A person can literally have a blank mind and blow a load as it is physical stimulation not emotional or mental.

Just as an asexual person in a romantic relationship can and probably will have sex to reproduce with a partner if they have a strong enough bond and their partner wants a child. It wouldn't be an emotional experience of sex, more or less just the act of reproducing and nothing more.

That sounded a little bit cold.

I'm 18, 19 next month and I've only had one serious relationship. It lasted about 2 years until I broke it off about a year ago.

I'm neither aromantic or asexual, however sometimes I wish I was. I'm fairly happy being single, yet there is also a desire to be in love. I know it's basic human nature, but I could do without it just fine. The same goes for sex. I loved having sex in my previous relationship, in fact I loved it so little too much, I wanted it all the time. I think my libido has gone down since then, but honestly I wish I didn't care about it.

Like, I'd love to have sex, and when I do, it's great, but at the same time the desire for sex is a nuisance and can make me feel lonely. Desire (and attachment) is the source of suffering, as Buddhism teaches.

I'm mostly Asexual. I don't know if I'll ever be sexual. Due to how I view things. Sex has never really caught my interest. As far as being aromantic? Maybe. I do like romance but it's short lived. After 2 months in the relationship I feel like its a waste.
