Finally Realizing

I'm 26/f and up until a few days ago I had no idea that "Asexuality" was a real orientation. I googled it as kind of like a joke thinking that only certain animals were asexual but maybe humans felt like that sometimes. Boy was I surprised at what came up. Truth is I've only gone out with a few guys in the past. They were nice guys and there was no reason for me not to like them, except the fact that I didn't have any feelings for them. I tried to force the feelings but that didn't work. Sooner or later I dumped them. Sometimes I got the "why is it so easy for everyone else to start a relationship and I can't" attitude. Now that I know there is such a thing as asexuality I feel a little bit better and a little less weird. Although it still sucks. Am I gonna be alone the rest of my life? I do want a long-term relationship and would like to get married someday. But how do you explain the fact that you don't care about sex to a potential husband? I don't think I'm ever going to meet someone who'll understand that. Atleast I know now that I'm not the only one in the world who feels like this. So thanks for being here and thanks for reading.

Hi there. You're not the only one. Thanks for sharing!

There is more to a relationshiop than sex and I wish more woman could understand that. <br />
Animals have sex just to reproduce so why can't humans?<br />
I am with you in that I don't desire sex much if at all.

Actually, some animals have sex for pleasure.

I do not think i am asexual but i am unsure. But sex is a unimportant thing for me. I am too young for you of course but we do exist out there. Somewhere.
