    For those who don't know, asexual is someone who feels no sexual desire for other people. They may often want the companionship of a relationship but with no benefits.

    What would the jws view be of a jw dating an asexual worldly person?

    Probably allowed unless you stay the night at their house, cause that automatically means they had sex..

    It would be seen as sexual. I could write a paragraph for you but I cant be bothered much more. But it would be seen as sexual as they are obsessed with that side of being.

    Wouldn't fly even if the other person was asexual or homosexual.

    It comes down to if you sleep under the same roof with a single person of the opposite sex.

    You might not be Dfed but you would most likely be counseled.

    Not exactly your point, but posters raised some relevant questions:

    JWs are all about appearances. So even though the person is asexual they will say that your actions still go against the spirit of the scriptures and sets a bad example that others in the congregation may choose to follow if you're not dealt with. They'll also say that even without the illicit sex, there's the matter of bad association. JWs aren't supposed to have unnecessary association with worldly persons, such as going out with them on a chaste date.

    I don't see why they should feel any different about an asexual JW dating a wordly person. A wordly person is a wordly person in their book, sex or not.

    Not to mention that the Wt doesn't have the depth of though necessary to understand the concept of basic human sexuality, leave alone gender identity or sexual orientation (or lack thereof).

    Two things ... Worldly Person. Opposite Sex.

    Here is the order of things.

    1. Counsel.

    Then depending whose feathers are ruffled

    2. Whispered counsel to others to avoid you then possibly "Marking" for walking disorderly.

    3. As mentioned - if you have a snooze on their sofa overnight and the "police" know about it then judicial. They may us their new catch-all "brazen conduct" to do the dirty.

    It would be treated as worse than someone who is wearing tight pants but not as serious as a brother or sister who wears a beard,

    What would the jws view be of a jw dating an asexual worldly person? - it would still be a no-no because the asexual worldly person could influence the JW's thinking on the existence of God, evolution, politics, religion, etc.

    Yep, the WTS has thought of everything.
