DATING ADVICE FORUM
This post is inspired by this question posed by aqua-ace as well as some recent discussions follow-ups partly captured here , but there seem to be too many different threads to easily reblog or link to here about sex-averse and sex-favorable asexuals. So I decided to limit the blogs I follow on Tumblr to those which primarily provide content related to asexuality that is of interest to me. When it comes to other topics of importance to me, I prefer other formats and forums primarily Twitter for online interaction.
In hearing the word asexual, one who knows very little about the subject may assume that anyone who identifies as asexual, does not become aroused and has zero sexual experiences. However, that is .
Been reflecting a lot lately and so glad I am finally going out dancing, and in a place where they have foreign music, foreign guys, and I can dance to foreign tunes and most people are in their 20s, which matches my soul interests and the dancing is such an amazing freeing feeling that finally my soul can achieve and be nourished. I want to dance in the way I like to for hours on end, and be in an atmosphere that naturally matches my 21st mindset soul and inner being.
I like to be around young guys, not around guys near my birth certificate age, and that piece of paper is not me and not true to who I am. I am also going back to focusing on my life purpose which is WRITING and to change lives through the written word — writing is my number one passion in my life and my life purpose — followed very closely by asexuality. I want to help as many people as possible with my knowledge and worrying about what people think is not any good for me. I have never experienced a need, urged want for it, but yes, I could fully feel it and experience it, probably in part due to the fact I am very sensitive, emotional, and I have high arousal levels — which I cannot help and in the past mistook for sexual attraction.
I am also sexual in behaviour with the way I like to kiss with my clothes on — it can feel extreme and scary even for me. I like to get naturally excited with my clothes on, but sex does not appeal to me in the slightest — and yes, my ex was good at sex, but I am not liking sex or wanting it ever again, passionate kissing is a much bigger excitement for me and more explosively pleasurable if you must know, and I do not want sex ever again.
So yeah, I will be writing a book about hetero-sex for asexuals who want to try it and have no clue what to do. I am glad there are thousands of asexuals around the globe who have never had sex, that is amazing, and I am proud of you for doing that and staying that way and think it is very healthy for you. I am happy for every asexual who does not have any arousal or sexual behaviour whatsoever, that is fantastic — I am happy for you to be you and me to be me, naturally.
Asexual Lesbians: “Our Connection Doesn’t Have to be Sexual”
Most of the time, I’m quite open about my sexuality beforehand, knowing that it’ll be a deal breaker for almost every person I meet. If someone asks me on a date, I’ll typically blurt it out without even thinking because I don’t want anyone getting uncomfortable or pushing me into something that I don’t want. They usually lose interest. But, a few months back, I met someone who I was lucky enough to keep. I love her more than I ever thought possible, but that hasn’t been without a few bumps along the way.

The openness has also helped asexuality become more known. Asexuality might not be known as much as being gay , bi, or straight, but people are starting to see it as a sexual orientation, like the others. First of all, can you explain what being asexual exactly means? Everyone is unique so there are different shades of asexuality, just like there are different shades of being gay or straight. To clarify, are asexual people into romance then?
It will vary on the person, but there are asexual people who are very much interested in the idea of finding love and having a romance.

The second confusing feeling people associate with flirting is insecurity.
The article sparked an avalanche of e-mails and comments from women who were feeling panicked over the state of their relationship. Most understood the point I was making in the article, but rather than relaxing and just going with the flow, they wanted to know: This is exactly the problem Eric and I have been addressing at length, not only on the site, but also in the newsletter and on our Facebook accounts. But I realized that identifying the problem is only half the battle.
The next step is to get to the root of it and figure out how to solve it. When you eliminate the care or worry or stress or whatever you want to call it , you are free to really be in the relationship. You can see the other person for who he is and you can give yourself to him freely — no strategy, no game-playing, no manipulation.
