“I’ve always considered myself demi sexual and I have been in a “straight” relationship for over a year after developing strong feelings for my best friend… I am happy with them.. Their company and their personality and I love them… But I go through patches of feeling detached and in those patches because I don’t feel close enough, the thought of sex just doesn’t enter my mind at all. I can go through months of feeling no sexual desire at all but because they are just hetero they want it as much as a hetero would and cuddles and kisses etc and it can feel really isolating sometimes because I just don’t want to and I’m scared if I tell them how I feel they will just feel unwanted and think I don’t want to be with them when I really really do I couldn’t stand the thought of us not being together… Does anyone else feel like this?”
