I Am A Heteroromantic Asexual.I am a heteroromantic asexual. This means that I desire romance, companionship and love from the opposite gender. I do not however wish to have sex with anyone. For me romance=/=sex! I would absolutely love to find a heteroromantic asexual female to date, maybe get engaged with and perhaps even marry. Before you tell me that asexual romance can not work, let me stop you and tell you that asexuals have gotten married.
Of course I find some women, okay a lot of women to be beautiful and attractive, but I do not want to have sex with them. I don't look at a beautiful woman and think: "I'd like to tap that." if you will. I look at a beautiful woman and think: "What a beautiful person, I would like to get to know her." When I look at a pretty woman, I don't get aroused. It's like looking at a beautiful painting or a sculpture and in this case, the sculptors are the Gods.
No, I do not find sex to be "scary". There are far more terrifying things called tornadoes and I wish to chase them. Nor do I find sex "dirty" or "wrong" (except oral sex, ew!).Sex was instituted by God/nature and if someone enjoys sex consensually, more power to them. Sex does have the benefit of keeping the human race going. However, I do find using certain body parts to express your love for another person to be foreign and bizzare.
I have felt this way for a long time, since as far back as I can remember. No, nothing bad happened to me to make me this way. I just am this way. I feel no guilt or shame for this so don't ask me to. If you have questions, just ask.
