    Yes I think asexuality may exist. I thought I was when I was much younger, but it changed as I got older.

    Never...thought about it.

    But that must be really good for your self confidence.

    So...you're not attracted to anyone else?

    I called myself an asexual in my teens but I merely had low self esteem and was terrified of women. I attempted to repress sexual impulses, because I felt they would never be satisfied.

    Sexual attration and sexual intimacy are very important in life, in my opinion. To think that people may have a disposition which means they will never experience such emotions is sad.

    It also makes very good fun. Initial flirting around with a new crush where there is a common sexual attraction, for example.
    I think that sexual intimacy probably gives a new dimention to the relationship that asexual people would not understand. I guess it's probably a trust in that other person.

    I'm not trying to rub it in, OP. I am just trying to explain why I think the thought of asexual people is sad. I think they would miss out on a lot in life.

    But... an asexual person wouldn't really want any of this would they? I'm sure lots of asexual people have close relationships with friends and family. They're not really being deprived of what you describe, they just don't find it as important as you or I. I'm sure they find something to fill that void.

    No.

    Were you serious about my self-confidence? I like myself.

    Your thoughts please, thank you.

    Does anyone else identify themselves as asexual?

    Morrissey. Probably the only thing he would have in common with someone going by "Iron Lady" in their spare time.

    My thoughts- if you feel you're asexual than people should accept it and accept you.

    To be honest, you don't sound like you're Asexual, it's incredibly common for people to have a low sex drive before having any sexual experience because your body actually increases its libido the more sex you have.

    There's no scientific consensus on this really, alot of people discount it as circumstantial and alot of others say that it's documented. Personally, seeing as we're all born with the physical capabilities to have sexual pleasure, I'm inclined to say asexuality is too often confused with low libido.

    I think you OP should probably try some sexual stuff before you say you're definitely against the idea. You might just not have found your sexuality yet, have you considered you might not be heterosexual?

    No.


    No.


    I suffer from anxiety, occasionally have anxiety attacks, along with other personality disorders. But, I do not take medication/antidepressants. I feel down from time-to-time, but I wouldn't identify myself with depression.
    You haven't ever been in a relationship? Why?

    Thank you. I am considering letting my loved ones and trusted ones know by "coming out". It's not their problem, so I feel they will "accept" me or live and let live.

    I've never had anyone ask me, or the inclination to "get to know someone". I'm female.

    Hi Iron Lady, I am a bit.

    I reckon you can be so in a matter of degrees.

    As you suffer with anxiety, so it might cause you to stay permanently reserved and become reclusive, why don't you go and try talking to some guy or girl that you like? If you have never tried sex or talked to someone you like you'll never know if you're asexual, it might be that you actually do like it, have you ever masturbated?

    I was serious, I have low self confidence. It would be nice to find yourself hot sometimes.

    I'm being serious.

    That's pretty cool anyway.

    Somewhat to your first question;

    I can't say for certain, considering my age and inexperience. But I've never had a relationship, or even felt a connection with someone. So I've thought that I may be asexual.
    I'm in pretty much exactly the same situation as yourself.
