Is it necessary to be in a relationship or have a liking towards a particular sex ?

A topic most people are obcessed about. I don t really care. Hello, i m a 22 years of age female and the thought of intimacy and relationships does not interest me whatsoever. I do get asked out a fairly decent amount of time, but i never go out with anyone because i simply am not interested. I have no idea why people are so obcessed with being in a relationship. I have never felt anything for a woman (I am not gay), but i don t get turned on by guys either. I like my space. I have been intimate with men before, yet felt nothing from it and really just wanted to leave. Sex has no appeal whatsoever. I was never molested or raped, i had a great childhood. I am smart and attractive and very kind. I feel like the entire world is out there for me to see and for me to stay an individual, appart from being in that thing called a relationship. Is there something wrong with me??

Psychiatrist 's  Response

I think "wrong" is not the correct word. But yes, you are definitely different from the "average" that is all.

As long as you are not distressed by this fact,
as long as you are not causing disturbance to others by this attitude of yours (I don't mean the people who ask you out and get turned down),
as long as you are ok with what you are and as long as you are sure that in the future you would not have regrets or even if you have a cause to regret, you are ready to face it, then there is no need for you to seek help.

Have you thought about marriage, husband and children in your future? If yes, then you may want to seek help, either now and sometime in the future.

Why you are different is a question, it seems you have already tried to answer yourself. That might be another reason why you might want to seek help.

Otherwise.....Just be comfortable with what you are.

Good Luck.
