You can choose to remain abstinent and not have sex or date or have relationships, but that's different then asexuality.
DQ, I know a few people that have never got married or have been in a long term relationship and just decided not to get married. Nothing wrong with that.
Oli... So well written! Good for you for starting this thread and being who you are.
Right on the money there.
I have absolutely no sex drive, no desire to engage. I've tried to have one, but failed miserably. I just thought something was medically wrong with me and found out through my friend (licensed therapist with a specialization in sexuality. convenience at it's finest) that I was most likely asexual. And it makes sense and explains my life nicely.
And while sexuality is fluid and can change it won't deviate too far from where you're at. (should have clarified that)
