Can Asexuals Fall In Love?

Although asexual people do not experience sexual attraction, that does not necessarily mean that they do not experience romantic emotions.  As most people know, love does not equal sex, so it’s possible to fall in love with someone and not be interested in having sex with them.

I’ve written about my personal experience with love, as well as a more general overview of the types of attraction, including romantic attraction and orientation.

  1. Yes, it’s possible. I’m someone like that. I can fall in love but I don’t want to do the horizontal samba dance with any man. Kissing, cuddling and spending time together is what I like.

  2. I have a problem.. I always thought I was a lesbian, I tried to conviece myself about liking some girls, but in reality.. I never felt love. I really want to love, but I can’t fall in love.. Is that being an asexual? Does every human fall in love? Or.. which sexuzality is that?

    • as an asexual panromantic,,
      if you like girls but never feel love means that you’re asexual homoromantic

      means you like girls but not in a sexual way

  3. It took me 50 long years to finally figure out why I was such an anomaly of nature, but knowing I’m not alone gives me some peace of mind.

  4. For me, it’s more that sex is one thing and love is another. I don’t understand sexual attraction AT ALL, but I still enjoy sex and sexual experiences. I’m also very much in love with my husband and enjoy having sex with him, but I am not sexually attracted to him or anyone else in particular. Masturbation is as valid and satisfying for sexual pleasure as partner sex.
