Is it normal to want a life without romance?

It could be normal. Some women may be suited for that. I might be one of them. I'd like companionship, but I don't want a physical relationship with anyone. Not sure if this is what you meant, though, Freaky Cat.

To answer the question in it's entirity, I can see myself living without it and being OK with that, but not sure that I'd want to.

To me, sex and romance are two different things. Sex is apart of romance, but romance isn't defined by sex alone.

I cant imagine life without romance nor without sex. I guess it depends on each individual. Everyone is different.

I did it for seven years. Finally gave up and got a divorce. I must have romance and passion in a relationship...if I can't have that, I'd rather be alone than endure a loveless relationship.

There's a religious group called the Shakers in America who subscribes to a life of no romance and they remain celibate to the day they died. Some unusual ideas and practices they have.

They're famed for making Shakers furniture.

As for me, I'd want some romance, yes. I think everyone needs that.

Yep. One of the reasons the religion is so small.:giggle: The only way they get new members is to convert others. No kids, no growth of members. Guess they didn't figure that little complication in there when they were writing doctrine!

But to answer the OP, asexuality is not as rare as one might think. Its not for me, but there are many people who don't feel the need or the desire for physical intimacy.

Dont count on me ever becoming a member of that religious group. Gosh, life is just too short and sex/romance is part of human nature. Why go against what we were built for? That's what I will never understand about religion groups like these.

LOL, we don't need to worry about them taking over the religious front! They eventually just die out! No sex, no kids! There goes the blood line!:giggle:

To be honest with you, I don't think I'll ever get close to another person again. I was married 5 yrs and it suxed. I am happy alone with my kids. This may sound geeky, but I want God to play a part in the next person I hook up w/.

Then, I don't know. I can live without sex, but not romance. I'd need companionship.

That's not geeky at all. I completely agree with you 100%! I've turned down a lot of dates because I'm not ready either.

I am gonna have to agree with Oceanbreeze on that, because I think it's normal for some people to have life without romance if they perfer to be alone or a hermit type. I don't think is such a bad thing. :)
