Absolutely. Not all individuals crave sex or intimacy. Some simply want comfort, contact, or someone with whom they have something in common. But as far as intimacy, if it is important to one person and not the other, it would cause conflict going forward, which means that it would likely be wise to discuss concerns and see if any compromise is possible. If not, it may then be prudent to re-assess your goals and whether this relationship is right for you.
