I love that the FWG is filled with such a variety of people who have such a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. Just a quick glance at the Member Knowledge Base makes that quite clear. So I’m going to ask something I’ve been curious about for a long time now.
What makes an asexual relationship different from a deep, solid friendship? Why asexual? What is it about the sexual relationship that doesn’t appeal? Is it just the sex and lack thereof that’s different? How does someone in an asexual relationship express their feelings to their bf/gf/husband/wife different from others? Do they?
Sorry if the questions seem rather ignorant, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to sit down and talk about this with someone who is asexual before, and the last thing I want to do is make assumptions. I’m coming to this table with as clean a slate as possible, as someone who’s in a m/f sexual relationship in which I happened to marry my best friend. There’s a story I’m reading that made me realize that I know next to nothing about asexual relationships, despite being curious as ever. So please, come enlighten this ignorant individual!
