so im in a relationship with a girl that im really into. weve been dating for six months or so. except last week she told me that she identifies as asexual. specifically, she is grossed out by the very idea of engaging in any kind of sexual activity. i thought we were just taking it really slow, but it seems like were never gonna reach the next step of our relationship. i asked her if i could sleep with people outside the relationship and she said no. would it be wrong to leave her over this?
Part of being in a relationship is being able to experience intimacy with someone. For some couples, maybe they decide that isn't necessary. For most people though, it's generally expected that your partner is someone who you will be having sex with.
If you're unhappy in this sexless relationship, which I imagine you are, you don't have to stay in it. By all means, I would leave and look for a woman who does want to have sex. But if you really like her and think maybe it's just taking her a while to come around to the idea, then maybe hang in there and be patient.
