We are all individuals, with our own individual preferences and personalities, and it is generally impossible to make blanket statements about us.In many people, the sexual and romantic orientations are aligned, so people tend not to think about them being separate concepts.If you’re still unsure, here is a list of questions to help guide your thoughts.They’re not meant as a checklist to “diagnose” asexuality, rather, they describe feelings that many asexual people have had.An asexual person (“ace”, for short) is simply someone who does not experience sexual attraction.
