Searching the world wide web for asexuals and information on asexuality should be easy right? But when it comes down to it, there are only a handful of good websites to find information on and to connect with other asexuals. As if dating as an ace isn’t hard enough as it is.
Modern times, modern matching
The most well known websites for people who are looking for information and / or dating asexuals are already quite old. To me they feel like I’m browsing a 90’s dating website. Others are poorly designed or maintained and do little to nothing for their community. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not against 90’s websites. But we’re living in 2020 and I personally can really enjoy a well-thought-out website with a nice design. Only the very best for my fellow aces, right?
For asexuals, by asexuals
Where I feel other dating websites fall short, is understanding us asexuals properly. I’ve seen many complaints about the biggest asexual dating websites out there. No support, no improvements and limited options. On general dating websites and apps I find little to no understanding for the need of asexuals. After all, not every asexual wants their dating profile out there for the whole world to see.
And what is more frustrating than trying to share your interests and hobbies on your profile, but when you pick ‘listening to music’, it shows up as ‘listeing to music’ because nobody cares to fix these minor issues. And now people visiting your profile think you can’t spell the word ‘listening’. While in reality these pre-selected options to pick from, contain silly mistakes.

This started bugging me so much, that I felt it was time for something new. Something better! I grabbed my notebook and started scribbling down important features the website should have. From there on, I got the domain and started creating this website page by page. I’ve only just started, so we’re not even close to perfection (yet), but I will always be open to feedback and I’ll always be improving as this site is as important to me as it probably is to you! We’re looking for the same thing after all. Information, friendship and even love!
