I think i'm asexual....

i guess this must be the reason why i never found anyone sexually attractive. I mean i've been in one class where all the girls would go "damn i'd **** him" to our professor and i'm like "meh" Or the reason why i don't go all dumb or flirty around anyone that other people find so goddamed attractive. My first and last crush was this guy from second year high school and i didn't like hime because he's cute or ******** but because he was just genuinely sweet and nice about everything. I'm in college now and most of the people i know would be like "i'd tap that" or "mmm s/he's cute" towards any person they'd randomly see and find attractive and all i can say is "k."

i can't believe i'd realize my sexual orientation on FJ...
so is this good or bad?

That's not being asexual, being asexual means you want neither sex nor relationships with either gender (hence this article is bugging the hell out of me).

You are wrong, only some asexuals do not date. Most still get romantic attractions but they do not get sexual. If they do sex only comes into play for them to satisfy their sexual partner but they usually don't enjoy it.

Thanks to how the English language has failed to properly integrate the philic definition of love, it's easy to see how you could believe that, but it is still wrong.
What you defined is either heterophilia, homophilia or biphilia, the love of someone different/like yourself/two. Asexuality is on par with these, being the lack of a sexual orientation, rather than the lack of sexual lust.
Apart from asexuality, none of those describe your sexual preference, so regardless of which you fall under, you may still be heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual, or not partake in intercourse at all.

Also to remind you, this is the translation of the Greek terms, not the severely lacking English incorporation of them.

No matter how you word it asexuality is still the word used to describe someone who has little to no interest in sex and/or no sexual attraction. Whether it is a sexual orientation depends on what type of asexual you speak to as some will not participate in any form of relationship.

Asexuals can be any form of gay, straight, bi or whatever, but they are still asexual.

Did you just ignore everything I said and repeat your statement?

Not being sexually attracted, but still being romantically attracted is called hetero-/homo-/biphilia, asexuality is having no attraction towards anyone.

I didn't say it did. You obviously can't read. :>

I said that the word used to describe someone who doesn't want sex is asexual, regardless of what term is used to describe what gender they are interested in, in a romantic way of attraction.

I think the word you're looking for is celibate, not asexual.

No, it's not.

You seem to either be too prideful to admit you are wrong, or not have the right grasp on what asexuality is.

I am not, what is happening her is me taking another approach because you are obviously too stubborn to accept that sexuality refers to a lack of a sexuality rather than the lack of sexual attraction.

Where did you get that definition? I understand asexuality is just lack of sexual interest in anyone. People who meet that codifier have relationships all the time.

well i've never wanted to be in a relationship either i think relationships are a waste of time. and yeah after reading this i searched google and yep, i am asexual. I guess this is the reason why i don't care about looking sexy or attractive 24/7 like my friends.

Could also be that you're waiting for the right one, as love is one case where personality can make a difference so big that it's almost binary.

Well i guess only time can tell for me. If you are right then i can't really do anything about it now can i? as for now i think being asexual is a good thing in college. I can focus all of my strength on school work and not care about getting ****** or having a boyfriend or "tapping" some random guys ass like most of my friends would.

it's good you realized them so where you found out doesn't matter
and i'm glad i'm not alone in the asexual department on funny junk. dont get me wrong i do get the same primal urge as everyone else but it's nothing my hand cant fix and it only happens every now and then.

I don't get it all, well, yeah i do sometimes but it just fades in a matter of seconds when i realize "wait. nah." I think the benefit of being asexual is that you can think more clearly and make better decisions in a relationship because you're not clouded by lust and the reason why my friends ask me for advice in why they have relationship problems.

Hey i just realized that it's good to be asexual!
