Australian sex dating site

Among mainstream dating services, OKCupid stands alone in acknowledging aces.

In November 2014, it added expansive dropdown options for gender and sexuality, including asexuality and demisexuality.

Free apps like Tinder and Bumble, and paid services like don’t have specific mechanisms that allow users to identify themselves as ace, or to filter for asexual and/or aromantic matches.Instead of friendly conversation about shared interests, first dates often involve fielding intrusive questions about their orientations and histories, especially from those who don’t believe that their identities are “real.” “‘Are you sure?’ ‘You know, if try having sex, I’m sure it would be different,’” says magazine editor Emily Cutler, 23, rattling off a list of unwelcome comments she’s fielded while dating as a demisexual woman.Faced with the limitations of mainstream dating services, some asexual people prefer to stick to ace-specific alternatives, like Asexualitic and Asexual Cupid.It makes sense, in theory: Though many aces happily date outside the spectrum, a pool of like-minded users can be a more comfortable starting point.Bumble, a swipe-based app with a feminist bent, encourages people to network and find friends as well as romance.But as with Tinder, there’s no option to select an orientation, ace or otherwise.“‘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.Nathan Lickliter, a 32-year-old heteromantic asexual bank teller who lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, first realized he was asexual after reading a article.“If you see the categories that are coming up on dating apps, that’s part of that legacy of just not taking asexuality seriously.” But as mainstream awareness of asexual identity continues to grow, online dating services are finally starting to do more to acknowledge asexual users.Cerankowski says that knowledge and acceptance of asexuality have surged, particularly since 2010, which they credit to increased activism, scholarship, and pop culture representation.
