I'm 13 and I think I might be asexual. Am I too young to know?

It depends if you've developped or not. I'd say wait a while...
I'm actually not sure how to answer. Sorry...

hey Panda,
My understanding of asexuality is that they're people who dont experience sexual desire or interest. What makes you think that you're asexual?

Thirteen is pretty young and im not sure whether you're a guy or a girl but many people are still going through puberty and still developing their feelings and desires at this stage. It could be that you are asexual or that you will develop sexual feelings later. Either is OK.

I found this interesting article about asexual people in NewScientist (its not that geeky!)
