For us it seems easier. I suppose that is because it happens to be a purely emotional and intellectual relationship that is being formed. I’ve been in two long distance relationships and granted, they were both writers but I loved them. How do you guys feel about long distance things?July 23, 2015 at 6:52 pm #26368AnonymousInactive
I have been in two long distance relationships as well, and they were great; one relationship lasted a year. Just as Angelique said, I think it is eaiser for asexuals, as we are looking for the emotional connection. With that being said, I would not turn someone away because of the diatnce. People with sexual desire usually prefer their partner to be closer, because they see sexual acts as a crutial part in their relationship.July 24, 2015 at 2:40 pm #26375AnonymousInactive
Agree with both of you ..long distance relationships for asexuals ( as i now know them ) can be a good thing as , its not just about SEX…its about getting to know someone emotionally , talking about life in general…my long distance relationship work for about a year and a bit to…i couldnt wait to get home and get on skype, and chat about my day ..or her day …hmm miss those chats..July 24, 2015 at 6:22 pm #26376
Hi Angelique, Caroline and PBDD
I have Skype dated long distance, but never had a long distance relationship. But as I am usually attracted in an asexual way to just foreign guys, it’s most likely that if I were in a relationship, it would be long distance – Possibly extremely long distance. How often did you actually see your other long distance half and was it the distance that put an end to the relationship?

In response to your post- For me personally, one of my long distance relationships ended by my partner cheating unfortunately. The other one ended because we became more of friends rather than boyfriend and girlfriend. And to answer your other question about how often we saw eachother; we FaceTimed as much as we could. We both worked a lot, but most of the time we would fall asleep on FaceTime together. To give you a number, we would talk on the phone about 5 itmes throughout the day, and we would video chat about 5 times a week. 🙂July 25, 2015 at 3:09 pm #26387
So did you ever meet either of them in person,in the flesh as it were?

I met one of them in person once. Other then that it was all phone call,video chat and text 🙂July 26, 2015 at 1:49 am #26390
Hi Caroline, thank you for the information.
I have never been in a relationship like that. I have Skype dated/messaged a lot, which I guess is a bit similar and meant at times it would feel like I was almost in a relationship with them – But I wasn’t. I barely knew them. I have always thought I would have to meet them before deciding to be in a relationship with them. I guess that may change, but I love kissing too and would want a guy to visit me at least. It seems a lot of aces have relationships in the virtual world, but I haven’t had much confirmation that it’s true. I understand how nice that may be in terms of the connection. I can fall in love at the drop of the hat and that includes through a computer screen.
