I can already hear you composing your response, AAA: Asexuals are just one percent of the population. There are 400,000 people in Halifax, which means there are 3,999 other asexuals. Sounds like a lot, but most will be too young, too old, or unappealing for political or personal reasons (loves Kevin O'Leary, hasn't seen "Moonlight," picks their nose with an oyster fork). And a significant chunk of that number may not be aware—yet—that they're asexual. So realistically, AAA, your local dating pool is much smaller than 3,999.
