  • Depends on YOU. For me, I fall in LOVE with WHO she is, and that she is a total nerd, and wears glasses, and seems shy, but she is just waiting for that one special one, that sees the "Princess" in her, and then, just being with her, talking, playful kissing, and nerdy kind of talking, and nerd-dates, you just KNOW that you like each other!! First kiss, in the Science Museum, and WHO DOES THAT? LOL!!
    Sex isn't any big deal, and there are so many things, so much better!
    Several of the WONDERFUL Ladies, that I have been with, started as just casual 'friendly' kind of things, then a little kiss, and hugs, and more, and more, as we got to know, and like each other!
    I LOVE cuddling with them, just being close, watching movies together, and sharing a blanket, and maybe teasing, or playfully kissing, or sleeping together, when it is cold, and just being close.
    You choose, what you like, and almost all of what others say, is bullshit, so just ignore that, and be YOU, with the one you care about.

    • So if you like what I said, why like, anonymous? I would like to talk with you! :)

  • Everyone has their own recipe for a good relationship. A healthy dose of sex is one very important ingredient in mine.

Most Helpful Girls

  • You can't have one without the other. Well for me anyways. I honestly believe that is where the vulnerability of each other is mostly found so it strengthens and builds trust in the relationship each and every time that vulnerability is shown.

    Relationships are half emotional and half sexually. I believe they are both needed in a relationship.

    • Damn true💯

  • I don’t think I could. I guess part of being in a relationship is fulfilling each other’s desires and sex could be one of those. Unless both parts are okay with not doing anything

  • That is called a friendship. = hanging out, sharing memories, bonding.
    relationship = hanging out, sharing memories, bonding, sex.

  • Sex is almost everything. So yea NO

  • Relationships can work without sex, but it’s a very important part of creating intimacy and passion that create a good strong relationship. Sexual attraction is very important.

  • Not me personally but I am sure some could like perhaps asexual individuals. I like sex too much xD

  • Depends on the person of course, some people can live without it whilst others need it

  • Very important. I would have a hard time in a sexless relationship. If my hubs couldn’t have sex id for sure want to try viagra. Then we’d probably have a lot of oral sex and manual stimulation.

    • I mean. You're probably above the general libido for your age

    • Maybe I am. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Yay for me and hubs! Lol

    • 😅😂

  • Well, there are certainly other ways to be intimate with your partner (s) in the relationship, but I think that sex would definitely be important.

  • I've tried it before and couldn't do it. He was an awesome guy but he didn't believe in sex before marriage. I absolutely respect him for it but sex is really important to me. I ended things. My current boyfriend is actually asexual be he knows sex is important to me so he does it for me.

  • I want sex in my relationship because for me that shows how much you love and care for each other and to me no sex is like just a platonic friendship no sparks or passion, pretty boring. Sex isn't everything but it matters to me.

    • Very important

    • Same

  • How important is flour to a cake?

  • I think it's important to a degree, you can have a relationship without sex but what makes a relationship that much better as well closeness is intimacy, and that feeling of loving someone with intense intimacy makes It complete!

  • I probably could, but seems like sex would or should be part of it.. unless it was like an agreement until married or something

  • yes i've had many but mostly when i keep it that way the guy cheats or leaves me sooo looks like to me they are all about sex or thell get it somewhere else...

  • That would be just a friendship

  • No bc there needs to be a deeper intimacy than just kisses hugs and small dates

  • I haven't had either so I'm not qualified to answer... not sure why you invited me to?

  • For me a lot

  • for awhile i could, but not always

  • Yessir, without it my relationships wouldn't feel transactional if I'm honest with you.. Finding a guy who's alright with leaving it out of the mix is a bit of a stretch tho so let's leave this in the hypothetical.

  • There are lots of relationships that work without sex, like the ones I have with my family. If it is romantic, then no, intimacy is important.
