“I am an asexual person who experiences romantic connections. I understand that some asexuals or other orientations sometimes do not experience romantic connections at all and I was wondering if anyone could explain to me the relationship between love and romantic attraction in that respect (while dating is involved)

How do you view your partners?

What draws you to a partner?

Do you even have partners?

Do you have long term relationships and if so do they involve love while not involving romantic attraction?”

Here are the replies.
