I don't really like dating sites, despite having alot of free time to invest i just don't feel like trying one. Relationships of all kinds can work when two people choose to love each other despite their differences. Compromise of some kind is necessary to keep mixed relationships like this together.

The asexual scene is not very far along yet, because it's waiting for asexuals to create it. What exactly is it that asexuals will and won't do?

I'm a bit of a masochist but I feel as though I definitely have reached my torture threshold.
This is not limited to hatred towards asexuals, but every group. I have known couples who did not engage in sex.

Any submission that actively detracts from that will be removed.

Not the websites necessarily, but the people who frequent them. I work full time and part time in the summers, as I am a teacher.
