To be able to answer your question, I guess I need to understand first exactly what you are wanting in this relationship.
From what you wrote, you're interested in this young woman in every way except sexual, right? My next question is why? Why is developing a relationship with this woman so important to you? Better yet, if she is so pretty and attractive in every other way to attract your interest to her in the first place, then what is it about her that turns you off sexually?
I guess it comes down to what exactly do you want from this girl? If it is to be friends, then you can do that. You can have a mutually love relationship, but it would probably be the kind of love that best friends or a brother and sister would have for each other. That doesn't take away from the specialness of the relationship.
As long as you are clear as to what exactly you are wanting from any relationship with this girl and you're very clear to her about what you are wanting, then I guess it rests on her shoulders from that point on to decide if that is something she can welcome in a relationship or if it is something that she would rather pass on. Either way, the decision is going to be hers, but at least she can make an informed choice based on your honesty with her.
One final note before I go, even though you aren't sexually attracted to her now, there have been many, many cases in which friends who've enjoyed a platonic relationship for years one day developed sexual feelings. No one knows why this happens. Maybe it's simply a matter of the time finally being right (the universe coming into alignment or whatever) for a sexual relationship to develop.
Best of luck with whichever way your possible relationship turns out.
There's nothing wrong with a man and woman being friends, sharing special moments together without being intimate. It amazes me how so many people think that just because one is in a relationship that personal intimacy/sex should be a part of the picture - sure, when it comes time - what about waiting until one gets married first?
Do not be misled - Love is not sex. Sex can be had at any time, merely for physical gratification. Making love is two souls uniting together to further share/express their love for each other, passionately.
A man can very much appreciate a woman for her intellect and beauty, that to me would be very appealing, for him to be considered a real man/gentleman who has the utmost respect for a woman -however, should the man only be out for sex then many women believe that they are only being used, or being played - or consider the man to be perhaps "no good" or a "loser" or such other name calling for which you can only imagine. It seems to me that too many women just can't be satisfied.
Love comes in many forms - however, true love between a man and woman takes time to grow, for both to become acquainted with each other, to share moments together, to see if they are compatible and when the time is right, when there is a physical feeling that's sparked, then it will happen - knowingly, real, everlasting, loving relationships are based on solid friendships.....
Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
