Asexual dating sites
“It’s not that there aren’t enough asexual people in the world or in my area.
“If you can help make someone’s life better, there is no better thing.” But as with other ace-specific services, the user pool on ACEapp is still so small that it can be difficult to make IRL connections.“If every asexual person on Ok Cupid suddenly was on ACEapp, I would ditch Ok Cupid,” says Daniel Au Valencia, 24, who identifies as nonbinary femmeromantic gray asexual.
“But it was the right thing to do to create an experience that worked for everyone.” Although Ok Cupid doesn’t include aromantic options or every gradation on the ace spectrum — including various combinations of romantic and sexual identities — it’s still ahead of the game when it comes to actively including ace users. It probably only matters if it comes down to their bottom line.” Tinder offers multiple gender options and allows people to select an interest in men and/or women, but that’s where the choices end.
“You have this one dating app that’s leading the way around gender identity and sexual orientation,” Cerankowski says. There are no identification or filtering options for aces, so if you want to identify as asexual or aromantic, you have to work around the app’s existing infrastructure.
“‘You just haven’t found the right person.’” Cutler has spent a lot of time perusing Ok Cupid in Philadelphia and now Alhambra, California, and she’s used to men questioning the validity of her sexual identity.
