Love to know what you think?July 2, 2021 at 6:21 pm #32245DanM86Participant
Thanks for sharing! I am new to your channel and have found the dating arena particularly challenging in coming out as asexual. When it comes to online dating, some counselors say it is good to have this up front on your “About Me” page and others seem to treat it as something to reveal later. It is a case-by-case thing it seems.July 9, 2021 at 1:28 am #32249
Hi Dan, I always say I am asexual in any dating profile I create. The only problem is, many people think the word asexual means I am highly sexual. So I have to spell out to them, that I hate sex, but even then they ask me why, or ignore it, or say if you don’t have sex, what will you do for me, BJ? It’s pretty disgusting.

I would more likely spell it out that I personally don’t hate sex, but am just not attracted to anyone regardless of sex or body type. Libido isn’t an issue but the wiring isn’t fully there if that makes sense. To focus on the positive, I would emphasize the general appreciation for romance and camaraderie in a relationship over needing to be “turned on” by this relationship. One of the questions on a dating app for evaluating matches was the preference of having a plus-one, which I guess is more of a guest in concept. I’m still trying to make sense of the do’s and don’ts.July 10, 2021 at 5:57 pm #32256
Hi Dan, well with that type of wording you would attract a number of asexuals. I know many would be able to relate to you. Many sexuals want a person who gets turned on by them in my experience, and they want you to find them attractive. They like romance, but camaraderie I would usually hear asexuals mention, rather then sexuals. Hopefully you will attracts the sexuals who looks for something different. I believe there is someone for everyone out there, so I hope you find your special someone.
