According to Stonewall, an asexual person (or ace) is defined as someone who does not experience sexual attraction for any gender.

However, there is a large amount of diversity among the asexual community, as there is among all LGBT+ communities, and, indeed, the straight community.

Like everyone else, asexual people respond to relationships, attraction and arousal in different ways.

Some asexual people are happier on their own, while some want to form intimate romantic relationships.

Just because they don’t want to have sex, they still enjoy the communication, closeness, fun, trust and all the other stuff that a partnership can provide.
