Just to start, since that title might be misleading: Asexuality is fine. I am in full support of people being straight/gay/bi/asexual/pansexual/whatever. HOWEVER, I do not think that someone should ever be forced to be a different sexuality than what comes naturally to them, whether that comes from other people or themselves, consciously or unconsciously. I think that's what's happening to me. I'm straight, that's how I've always identified. I semi-recently confessed feelings for someone who didn't reciprocate, and since then I haven't felt attracted to anyone, even slightly. (It's been a relatively long time since this happened.) The thing is, I don't think I'm actually becoming asexual. I think the part of my brain that deals with this kind of thing is closing itself off so that I no longer have to experience the bad, nervous, what-do-I-say, what-do-I-do, what-if-this-and-that part of liking someone, and I don't really like that. I still want to be able to feel attraction and be in a relationship with someone and kiss them and stuff, but something inside me doesn't seem to be on the same page. Is this a thing that might actually be happening, or am I just overthinking? If this is real, should I be worried? What can I do to change it?
EDIT: I just realized this is probably the wrong place for this, but I won't delete it/move it yet in case everything's okay.
