While you can view our website on mobile just fine and works well, we do understand the benefit of an asexual app. Visitors have often asked us “are there dating apps for asexuals”? The answer is yes! But unfortunately there are some downsides. Let us explain.
The downside of the current dating apps
There are a few dating apps for asexuals out there, but not many asexuals have found them yet. Meaning the userbase is small and as a lot of asexuals on AVEN and the asexuality subreddit on Reddit rightfully pointed out: with the asexual community already being small as it is, having them spread out over those apps and websites makes it even harder to find someone. So unless you subscribe to all apps and websites, it might be hard to find the person you’re looking for.
However, with the asexual community getting more attention thanks to asexual activists like Yasmin Benoit, the number of the asexuals joining the community are growing. That’s why we want to help you and the asexual community in any way possible. Even if this means you’re leaving our dating site to use a dating app instead. From one asexual to another: we want you to be happy! So without any further ado, here are the top 3 tips when you’re looking for the best dating apps for asexuals.
This app is currently the only dating app for asexuals that was specifically made for this community. It was released in 2017 and has well over 10k downloads. With both positive and negative comments, it’s up to you if this app will work for you. However, be sure to read some reviews before downloading.
Important note: on March 8th (2020) a data leak was discovered where users risked a leak of their real name, username, picture, country, and location if they logged during that time. More information about this can be found here. There was an update done on the 9th of March. But it is not clear if this fixed the issue.
Update as of 25th of March 2020: “They did do a rollout March 9th, which was misleading to the users, since the issue is not fixed nor does it require a rollout to fix it. We just checked it Monday, May 25th Pacific Time and the issue has not been fixed at all”

Update as of June 13th, 2020: “We want to inform you that all the data on ACEapp is completely safe and only authorized users can request and view the data. We recently launched our new update on 4th June in which we have used a new database and a secure environment.” – Rishav Saxena, ACEapp
When you’re thinking of the best dating apps for asexuals, OKCupid should be on your list of options. The app has been focusing more and more on all the different (a)sexual orientations. You can now search for other asexuals on the app.
Important Note: If you value your privacy or aren’t ‘out’ yet be sure to select the option to not be seen by straight people (you won’t see other straight people either).
If you want to see who likes you (before you liked them), want to send a message before someone liked you back, or want to search in incognito mode (people can’t see your profile but you can visit theirs and like them, at which point they’ll also see you), you’ll have to pay. Pricing depends on how many months you want to pay for at once. Pricing starts at $9,99 if you pay for three months, and goes up to $19,99 if you want to only pay for one month.
Bumble, Tinder, etc
And the last suggestion in the list of dating apps for asexuals is for those who are out and are not afraid to show themselves on dating apps as an asexual. With very limited options when it comes to dating apps for asexuals, the best option to reach as many people as possible, is to join general, well known dating apps and mention your asexuality in your profile text instead.
Users have asked a couple of times now if asexuals.net also has an app. The answer is no. It means hiring someone to do this and since we’re still offering our dating website for asexuals for free, it’s not something we can financially do right now. We will look into the possibilities of this next year, if/when the community grows bigger. Until then, you can also use our dating website for asexuals on your phone. Simply go to asexuals.net in your browser on your phone, or sign up right away, and start matching.
Whatever apps and websites you end up using, we hope you find your match. Whether that is an ace friendship, or more!
