  1. My partner is on the ace spectrum, and I love when autostraddle has any asexual content. In our case, she is the one who asked me out and there was no expectation of sex. I’ve never dated an asexual person before but this is by far the best relationship I’ve ever been in (because she is wonderful and we are super honest and open with one another)💖
