Default Ever been in a relationship with an Asexual partner?

Some people don't even realize they are asexual, they just tell the other one they just have a low libido. Sometimes, asexuals start off by having sex with the newly found partner in order to please the partner, but as things progress they go back to their usual pattern and rarely bring themselves to having sex.

When they finally get to a point where they would give it a try, even the slightest noise or interruption puts them off and if everything is not perfect then they give up on the idea.


Question #1: Ever been in such a relationship?

And question #2: Is 'married with children' the place where women go to become asexual ? (please treat the 2 questions separately )

Sounds dishonest.

No.. sounds totally f-ing miserable. I have asexual partners. They're called friends.

Before I was married, if I heard of a guy who was asexual I just assumed he was confused or gay or both.

Question #1: Ever been in such a relationship?
My LAST relationship went EXACTLY as you just described. There was only one friend that I would vent about this to, and she threw the term "ASEXUAL" out there and I didn't know WHAT it meant until I did some research on it and it fit ole boy to a tee! Needless to say, we didn't last. After the relationship progressed, I always had to be the one to initiate anything sexual because he just wouldn't. I got tired of that. A woman likes to feel desirable. It really shed a lot of light on why he could never keep a damn woman.

That's what the chloroform and duct tape is for!
