Indifferent Me

When I was a little kid, everyone around my age somewhat knew about sex already. I wanted to fit in so I pretended that I had a crush every once in a while. The truth is, I have never had romantic feelings for any other human being. As I got older and entered High School, I figured maybe it was because I didn't have a sexual preference and that maybe I liked them both or just haven't run into anybody that I thought looked "hot" yet in real life. I *********** but it felt almost like eating something that tastes really good to you even though you've had your fill already...just for the taste. I'm someone who knows a lot about nature and science and never realized there was even the slightest possibility I or any other human could be Asexual. One day I was with my friend (around the end of last month actually) we were joking around and I said something about being a plant and reproducing that way (I remembered that Asexual is a term used for that sort of thing). I've been called, and have called myself asexual ever since then just about everyday until I looked up the word online and realized that it was actually possible. I couldn't believe it at first and thought of it as a hoax, but as I read what people said about it and what it was mainly "about" everything started to add up. Questions began to answer themselves; Why I've never gotten a sexual partner, why I've never been attracted to a person, why I distanced myself from the act of "sex" (what I mean by this is that I know sex exists and I know others do it but I can't see myself doing it). I am glad that there is an explanation for "what" I am now and I am relieved to know that there's not something wrong with me (other than other unrelated things).

From first part of the story until before you talked about the plant thing, was also me! Right now, I'm really thinking if I'm asexual or not...well, I actually I've thought about this since around 2 years ago.
