I (26nb) have recently met a new friend (19m) who I find utterly charming and have accidently found myself entirely enamored with. So much so it has me questioning if I'm actually asexual anymore because he makes me feel like a dog in heat every time we talk.
The problem is, I honestly don't know if it's wrong for me to feel this way? I have untreated adhd so I can be impulsive and struggle with regulating my emotions. This could just be a small crush I'm blowing out of proportion, but it certainly feels ground shaking to me.
Am I being rediculous or is it always best to keep friends like this at arm's length? I feel like the age difference could result in me unintentionally taking advantage. I have other friends around his age but I feel silly.
