Question from a recently "out" heteroromantic asexual about dating non-asexual women : asexuality
[This post was written for the December Carnival of Aces topic of “Dating and Significant Others as an Ace”.] It was the first day of the ninth. For asexuals who identify as heteroromantic or may be interested in (or part of) a afrocolombianidad.info is the first community and dating site for Asexual people. Perhaps you can find a website that introduces asexual people to one another? I' m not saying you have to find someone from this website to date but I'm sure.
Go to the Dr, ask to check your T levels.
When they come out normal, I'll shut up. But I seriously doubt they will.Dating Asexual People
It's not about an inability to reproduce. It's about not having the desire to. To the asker - I'm sorry that there's so much negativity on this. You be who you are. Non-ace people often find it hard to understand the 'need' to be asexual.
I get that it's not a need, it's just the way we are. I'm heteroromantic grey-ace female, who is also on hormonal birth control, and the chemicals in that haven't had any influence over my lack of sex-drive.
So that evidence for it being a hormone imbalance might be a little off. But don't let these people make you think that your sexuality is unnatural. I had my hormone levels checked out and my testosterone is a bit high.
By your logic, I should be humping everything I cross upon. This is the same kind of hostility gay people come accross. Just because we are different does not mean we are the spawn of the devil. And if someone can marry an inanimate object, I can call myself asexual, dammit. Ace-of-Hearts I am also a heteroromantic asexual male, and I have experienced a lot of the same problems you have, from losing relationships because I am not interested in physical intimacy to the same extent as my partner to people thinking I am gay because I am not interesting in having sex with women.

Many aces say they think of nothing when they masturbate, while a handful indicated that certain fetishes, like BDSM, come to mind. Brotto estimates that about 10 percent of masturbating asexuals masturbate to non-human images.
One woman Brotto studied said she masturbates to mythical fairies. Romance is very much alive in the asexual community.
Hetero romantic asexual?
Aces say that asexuality, just like sexuality, exists on a spectrum. Most asexuals, when asked, will identify two orientations: For example, while some aces identify themselves as both aromantic and asexual meaning they generally do not feel romantic or sexual attraction toward other peopleothers say they do have the capacity to feel romantically toward others.
I'm capable of having strong emotional feelings, and I'm also capable of falling in love, but sex and love for me are completely separate," the year-old said. I just don't want to interfere with someone else's bits and pieces or have them interfere with mine. Demisexuals, explained Gwendolyn M. Gwendolyn, who identifies as a panromantic demisexual, has been in a relationship with a sexual man for the past seven years.
She says the bond generally takes a very long time to form, and even when it does, sex is possible, but it still remains relatively peripheral. It's really from this secondary sexual desire, this desire to make him happy, that makes it enjoyable.
That desire is a powerful force that stems from the head, rather than my libido. I don't hunger for sex the way other people might. These include individuals who don't typically experience sexual attraction, as well as people who can desire and enjoy sex but only under very specific circumstances.
I don't understand all the intricacies of myself yet, so this is the closest approximation I've come up with," said Chris Maleney, an year-old Pennsylvania high school student who identifies as Gray-A. The specific language that has developed among asexuals has not just been useful in helping aces define themselves, but it's also worked to bring the community together.
That's why [this language] developed. It acknowledges that we're experiencing a lot of different kinds of connections that we don't have words for. He said this language could also be useful in a broader context. It's a conceptually rich language that could be very valuable to even people who are not asexual.
