Could you be in a relationship without sex?

    No, not in a long term relationship.

    What is there to explain? Sex isn't the only way of expressing love or sharing intimacy. It may be difficult,but it's certainly not impossible.
    Can everyone who thinks they can have a 'sexless' relationship read this so your cute little brains can comprehend what you think you understand.

    Eventually you will have to have sex.. Agree? you're a human being, you will have some sort of sex and when you do, it wouldn't be a 'sexless' relationship anymore...

    It's a matter of how long.

    Unless you will come out of the relationship to just have sex with the person then get back in it so you don't specifically have sex within the relationship (at the moment you classify as being in a relationship and not just having sex with a friend)

    But how specific are we being?

    This question is very vague and broad.

    What you may want to think about may be, 'can you live the rest of your life without sex?', but that's a different question... I'll leave that with you to think about.
