    I haven't had a crush since I was 15. I'm 23 now.



    Tbf I know nothing could happen anyway as I'm impotent on my medication and it has made me overweight, and I'm mentally ill, autistic and don't have a high status job.

    Do you think I don't get crushes because I'm impotent? Is it my age? wot is it man?

    Apparently so. Some people never experience crushes or romantic feelings at all. Aromantics also tend to be asexuals. Psychopaths are also aromantic and have very high sex drives but they have no empathy at all = no emotions, so yeah.

    Yep, sexuality is fluid. If one does feel like they don't feel sexual attraction anymore or feel sexual attraction for the same gender suddenly, it is completely normal.

    Have not had one in about two years. Didn't even crush on my ex, just liked her casually and things got more serious.

    Yeah know what you mean.

    Crushes for me have become far less common than when I was in my early teens.

    Can barely remember my last.

    It made things easier I guess? I don't have any intuitive feelings to go on, I just say 'sure I kind of like you why not go for it?' I find the early stage of a relationship really easy cus I don't crush and therefore have no emotional investment, but when things get serious it's just as rough as usual.

    That is also normal, if they've always felt like they're trans or gay, they probably have been. But due to the fluid nature of sexuality, you can suddenly feel differently about your sexuality.

    Hahaha, gender identity and sexuality are two different things. I'm sure Caitlyn Jenner will stay a female until she dies
