“Ok I was hoping maybe you guys could help me out. I really hit it off with this guy and we are just friends but it’s started to become obvious we like each other so I told him I’m ace and he seemed to take it really well. Its been a week or so and now I can just tell he doesn’t like me as much and it really sucks because I thought he might be okay with it and I think I started to really really like him which doesn’t happen a lot with me. My friend asked him about it where he said hed already be dating me if I wasn’t ace because “i don’t want to have to break up with her later on because of it.” So I’m a little sad about it even though I expected it and id feel too bad to keep leading him on if I know he’s not gonna even try and I feel like it would be awkward to still be friends now that we surpassed that and I just don’t know what to do anymore. He knows I’m sad and wants to help but I can’t just tell him he’s the reason I am…”
