I might be wrong, but there's more to companionship and relationships than sex I think asexual means doesn't want sex, but doesn't rule out companionship.... I might be wrong. I am not asexual!

Asexual does not mean not interested in the love part of a relationship...just not the sexy stuff , and even then there are varying degrees.

Ahahaha. Actually I'm pretty sure he did read my profile. He just seemed to think the way to start a conversation was to tell me about himself and then instruct me to ask if I had any questions about him.
And said nothing about me.
And didn't ask about me.

It was more of a dictation than a conversation (starter.)


Although he did apparently miss where it said I don't want kids because he "definitely" wants kids. But that's such a tiny little insignificant detail. Not a deal-breaker in relationships at all ever.


As an aside if you don't want creepy creepers sending you e-mail propositioning sex you probably shouldn't be on OKCupid because that's pretty much 99% of the entire website.

Ah, that makes sense.

I am willing to venture that they don't actually know what Asexual means. they probably think they know... hence why they are messaging for hookups but are very misled on what it ACTUALLY means

You can date and not have sex. There are tons of asexual people who are happily married...they just don't have sex (and some actually do experiment with sex, thye just don't usually enjoy it).

There's even an asexual-only dating site.

A lot of people don't understand that for those of us who are asexual, romance and sex are two completely different things. I'm asexual and panromantic. Someday I may find a person I'd like to date or have a close relationship with, even though sex is not a part of the picture.

I'd bet money that guy's on the autism spectrum somewhere. Because that's pretty much how I handled dating sites for my little dating site stint

I met my boyfriend on Okcupid! Lol I guess it varies by region.. being in Boston, the site is nearly 100% college aged-people.. and I'd easily say 70% are looking for relationships.

I mean finding someone to hookup with in Boston isnt that hard (certainly easier than making a profile).. go to the bar nearest your/another university. Get drunk. Wait. so the site has sort of taken the rest of the crowd who are interested in more than that (and those who don't like bars I guess lol)

Again though, I'm sure it depends on region. I couldn't be happier with the results!
My boyfriend was one of quite a few message I received. Most were pretty sincere/nice, a few creepos, a few random "hey sexy", a few oddballs who I assume didn't read my profile..

he was the first one I replied to because his message was the longest and it stuck with me while reading the others (and I thought he was cute) We hit it off and I deleted the profile soon after.

There is hope on Okcupid!

tldr: met boyfriend on Okcupid. He is hot and his message was long (he said Merlin was cute) so I dated him and ditched the profile.

Hmmmm. Skyping was not as fulfilling as I had hoped. Just made me miss actually being able to touch him more. But, I suppose being able to see his goofy grin was rather nice. ^^ December, please hurry up!

Skype hurts like hell.
Honestly, we have taken to email/facebook chat 100 times more than skype.
Facetime is also fun if one of us is somewhere interesting.
but having just regular conversations/dates on skype just..ugh. It goes from regular funny nice conversations and quickly turns into "I miss you." "I miss you too" then I start crying, then he wants to comfort me, then I cry more because he can't. Or he's having a bad day and wants to be home and I'm like "I WANT TO HUG YOU BUT I CAN'T" and I get really mad.


*look away children*

In case you haven't tried..skype sex also sucks. I just..don't see the allure. I'm so focused on camera angles and stuff I can't even deal with what I'm trying to accomplish lol at the end of it, it's two frustrated people and inevitably turns into, on both sides "UGH I'M NAKED YOU'RE NAKED WHY CAN'T WE JUST TELEPORT AND HAVE SEX FOR REAL THIS SUCKS WHYYYYYY"
At least with phone sex I can focus on what I'm doing.
and at least with pictures/snapchat I can edit the pictures! LOL

Plus you've gotta shave your legs/bits even though he's gone which is such a waste honestly. ITS JUST NOT WORTH IT
