“I have been a questioning aromantic for the longest time, but I decided to give a romantic relationship a try, with a friend who has become very close to me. A few weeks into the relationship, we had sex, and since then, I have felt very ashamed, guilty, and embarrassed about that night, so much so that it has messed with my concentration during the day, and has caused many a sleepless night. I have also started to feel as though I don’t actually have romantic feelings for this individual, but I don’t know if this is because I am an aromantic, or if it’s due to the extreme shame, guilt, and embarrassment from having sex. Any advice would be very appreciated.”
