“so im a eighteen year old ‘closet’ asexual girl. i have a boyfriend who i honestly love to pieces, and im horrified that he will leave me if he finds out i am completely indifferent to sexual contact. ive never felt desire in my entire life, although i can form normal romantic, affectionate bonds with people. im scared if i “come out” he wont understand and feel betrayed. how can i explain being asexual without hurting my partner?”
