“How does everyone deal with crushes? I’m a homoromantic asexual in her early 20’s and have never dated anyone. I only once had a crush on my best friend who knew I was asexual but she didn’t feel the same towards me. Long story short is that we barely talk now and I feel it’s because I told her how I felt.
Fast forward to present day, it’s happening again. I recently became close friends with a girl I go to school with. She knows I’m asexual and I know she’s bi, possibly asexual too. I think I’m developing a crush on her and I don’t know what to do! She has a boyfriend that she deeply cares about and I don’t want to wreck our friendship. Could really use some advice from other asexuals since I don’t have anyone to talk to this about.
Thank you and sorry for the long post.”
