It’s so weird I keep on doubting, like whenever I see people I ask myself, “am I attracted to them?” And I constantly ruminate, have you ever experienced this?

@LR237787 Yes I have even before OCD I think questioning ur sexuality I'd super common with asexuality especially. I'm not going to reassure you but I can say ur experience resonates with me and u should try techniques to help with the rumination

@Anonymous One good step could be to say "maybe I am attracted to then, maybe not" and recongnize that sexuality labels are determined by YOU. they can be as fluid or stagnant as you want. Do even if u question ur attraction calling yourself asexual is 100% valid. And going unlabeled is too. And changing labels or changing back is to! Accepting the uncertainty is crucial, but u get to define ur identity

You’re asking for reassurance, not a good idea

i'm on the ace and aro spectrum :o!! i agree w/ wht anon commented abt labels being fluid n only u can rlly define who u are, questioning is okay but avoid ruminating abt it to the point its distressful
