    i've never had much of a sex drive and have never really cared much for sex, i'm 20 and haven't been in a proper relationship yet but idk what to do because sex seems to be pretty important in relationships :/

    Yes, sex is important in relationships but what is most important is the emotional bond you, hopefully, develop. You may not have much of an appetite for sex because you haven't experienced it yet. As with other things it can improve with practice and your desire as well. Not everyone has a strong sex drive and that is perfectly normal too. As long as you are willing to please your partner to a degree that works for both of you then it should really be a non-issue. If you find yourself romantically linked to someone you feel a spark with and then it develops into something more then you may surprise yourself and find you have more of an appetite than you thought! One thing is for sure..... if you over-think the situation and convince yourself that you shouldn't try to get into a relationship because of a lack of sexual desire that will be what you end up with.....nothing. Try to find someone that you click with even if it is just for having fun like gaming or wine tasting (whatever you like).... it doesn't have to be someone that you have a huge sexual spark with because that might not work for you.....and relax...don't over think the situation and fear becoming sexual......just relax and see what happens. You might surprise yourself!
