Anyone who doesn't or only rarely feels sexual attraction towards real people

Thanks for sharing so much about yourself. I think it can take a lot of time to figure out who you really are and as a questioning person myself I felt really grateful you shared your experience.

Welcome :) Fully discovering your sexuality & romantic orientation is a life-long process, I believe. It can only contribute to raising awareness if people talk about their own journey and my one is far from complete. 
I wish you the best luck finding yourself c: It really helped me feel like a complete person when I found out about "autochorissexuality" because I didn't feel like asexual was the right term for me.
Remember it's okay to change your label if you feel your current one doesn't fit you (or remove it completely) :heart: rvmp

#15 is exactly how I feel, too. All of my friends and even family members act as if they cannot live without sex on a regular basis. My mom tried to make me feel weird because I didn't have sex for a few years, after breaking my arm, having arm surgery on the other arm and knocking out my teeth. I was just happy watching movies and hanging with my husband and she was basically saying she'd dump my dad if he made her wait that long. It's crazy how people can act that way. 

I'm glad to see that you posted this. People always view Asexuality like it's odd. To me and my husband, it's just the norm. I'm glad to see others express themselves and do things like this, so people can realize we're not weird. We're normal. 

I'm gonna do this, too, just to continue it on.

Yeah I really can't understand how some people act like they'd die without sex. Like...don't they have any self control? That's so sad.

I think it's important to be open about asexuality and to educate other people. Sadly we're still not very visible.

Go ahead! I found these asks on tumblr (typed ace ask meme in the search) I deleted some of the questions tho

Right? It's sad how people make it seem like they just can't control themselves. 

It really is. And, that's why I'm glad you had written this. 

Okay, cool. I'll definitely give it a try, then. :)
