    I'm 23 now and have never been in a relationship so I have no hard evidence, just what's in my head.
    When I was 16 I realised I had crushes on guys but I never wanted to sleep with them, and since then I've identified bisexual/lesbian.
    There are girls and some guys I really like - I think they're attractive and would like to date them, but when we're face to face I don't feel any sexual attraction or want to kiss them etc.

    I imagine sleeping with girls, I'm turned on by porn, I want to be physically intimate with someone and I can be sexually attracted to characters on TV, I just haven't met anyone in person.

    My friend and I got close one time, nothing happened but she was being a bit touchy feely with me. I'm not attracted to her at all but i liked it, so maybe it's just nerves that are putting me off people in case it does get physical?

    I really don't know. I'm just terrified of being asexual (I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it, I just want to be physically intimate and have sex with the person I'm dating) and I don't know how to feel. I went to a club tonight and there were hot people and although I acknowledged that they were good looking I didn't feel particularly attracted to anyone.

    um if you're asexual then im sure you do not need any physical affections, but since you're scared of being deprived of that then im sure sure sure that you're not asexual

    I wouldn't worry about it. Date someone, if it gets to that point, have sex with them. See how you feel about it.

    If it does nothing for you, then whatever, it's not a big deal. Would it be a problem for you?

    Often, people want to be normal. They also want to be different.

    They want to be normal in every way that keeps them from missing out, and different in ways that make them "special".
