    So, I just joined the site, and am interested in participating, etc. But the search function seems really clunky…why can’t we do something like specify a search within our State (if in the U.S.), or maybe x number of miles/km from a given zip code? Seriously, why do I have to tell the program every single time that I’m not looking for someone in, say, Zimbabwe? Are there any plans to upgrade this program? I’m in the U.S., but I’d like to be able to focus on folks that are a little closer to me than, oh, Florida or Connecticut (I on the west coast). Maybe even have a field for city AND State? When I see a guy’s photo with the city name “Springfield” on it, I really have no idea where he is.

    From Wikipedia: “According to the U.S. Geological Survey there are currently 34 populated places in 25 states named Springfield throughout the United States, including five in Wisconsin; additionally, there are at least 36 Springfield Townships, including 11 in Ohio.”

    So…….Asexualitic…..can you do a little better? Any plans in the works?

    I know that can be really frustrating. It makes the search process that much more difficult. but hang in there and use patience. and know your not alone

    Hello, I’m new here too and was thinking the same thing! I’d like to meet people in my area but the search function is strange. It’s not that I mind talking to people far away though, it’s just hard to meet up for coffee!

    Yeeeepppp…

    I was rather hoping this had more going for it than a shiny front page than Acebook but if I can’t find people I’ll actually ever meet in real life, what is the point?

    I’m in Victoria mate and I feel your pain… same with YouTube videos when they wont play or overseas shipping. I’ve actually only just joined but appreciate the warning so I don’t get frustrated when I come back.

    I understand the hardship of trying to build something from a distance. We seem to live scattered all over the world and getting together for tea or a movie or walk is virtually impossible.
    I know not many would do this but I would pick up and move for the right person. I spent too many years in a relationship with the wrong person and gave in to their concept of what a “wife” should be … imagine what I would do for the right person.
    I know somewhere out there is someone for me. Who is strong, independent, fun, playful, bit of a geek and doesn’t want me to change who I am and who I would never ask to change.
    For this person I would leave my city, my province, my country or my continent. We all deserve to be happy. I would shift worlds for the chance.

    I live in the UK and hold asexual meet-ups in my city! But people come from all over UK – pone guy travelled 11 hours on a coach for the last one at the beginning of this month! I love meeting asexuals in person. I have not found anyone romantically suitable yet. So focusing on my career on the right asexual guy comes along!

    The distance is not the huge obstacle. I met asexuals from the foreign countries in my city. We had a good time even though there were some problems like usually. It is pity that most my asexual virtual friends can’t visit me.

    To the people in Europe, the US is big. One of fifty states is about the size of a country in Europe. Travel is expensive across the US, as is flying to Europe

    agreed @Pipt. Not that I think I would find many Aces in SoFLa (south FLorida).

    Still doesn’t answer the question. Why can’t I search in my area? I hear this question I asked all the time but no one from the site ever answers it. I’m not interested at all, and long distance relationships. The inability to search close to my area has kept me from using this site.

    Asexualitic is a much-needed and important site, but it is the most clunkiest, poorly-constructed site I’ve ever seen. You can search by distance, but where that function was once clear, now it’s kind of hidden. To search, click “Members” at the top left, then at top right, there is a pull-down function called “Hide/Show Search Filters.” There, you can then search by country and city. But what happened to being able to limit searches further by age and ethnicity and religion, etc? Also, you used to be able to post several photos one’s page to give a better sense of who one is. I had a dozen. Others did too. Now these functions are all gone except for one’s own profile pic.

    If you want to find others nearby, use ACEapp. Asking the users why the site is a certain way does not actually get you information because we don’t work for Asexualitic. I know it is frustrating not to get a response, but it is because you are asking the wrong people

    Thanks for the tip on ACEapp, though I suspect it may be more useful to you young sprites than to us old farts, but maybe I’ll try it out and see.
