How to stop sexual feelings for a straight guy

Unread postby unsureduck99 » 20th June, 2017, 4:11 am

So, with me, I am sexually attracted to guys and emotionally attracted to girls. I always thought I was gay until I started to have different feelings for people.

Anyway, so there is this guy at work who I am developing sexual feelings for. When we first started working with each other, I was sexually attracted to him, I found him really hot etc. But, as we started to get to know each other, them feelings started to fade away completely and was just interested in being friends. But now them feelings are starting up again and I honestly am back to obsessing over him. When I can, I do try and catch a glimpse of him at work which I'm sure he does not notice but in my opinion, that's creepy asf.

I've had this problem before with another guy who I was sexually attracted to but didn't really care about being friends. So could've fucked him then fucked off really.

Anyway, how am I meant to stop these feelings? I feel if I carry on like this, it will ruin us being friends which is something I'd rather have.

Castration is the only option.
I don't recommend it however.
This is a problem I'm sure a lot of people have and there isn't really a solution : /

The best option to stop having feelings for somebody is cutting them out of your life. As cruel as it sounds, if you want to forget someone, try to avoid them, not think about them by occupying yourself with different things. The most important factor - time. As time passes, it will get better and hopefully help you get over him completely. Unfortunately, it is impossible to get over somebody while being close friends at the same time.
Sorry if the answer isn't very appealing, but take my word - it only hurts more if you try to stick closely to the person :( This doesn't mean - cut all contact, but simply trying to be their best friend is destructive

I don't think cutting someone out of your life is the best way to handle it, especially since you said you work together. I think you should try to focus on the fact that he will never want to be with you and that he has no interest in having sex with another man and may think it's repulsive. You should also try diverting your sexual feelings to someone you know is gay and that you have a slight chance with. Another solution would be to pay more attention to women and trying to be more attached to them. I imagine it's hell to have only romantic feelings for women and only sexual feelings for men, but you can't let it ruin friendships and keep off track at work. Best of luck! :)

Trust me, it is confusing my sexual orientation.

I don't think I would like to cut him out. Just get rid of these 'sexual' feelings but it is so difficult.'..

Find a gay guy. You can't get rid of sexual feelings, but you may be able to redirect them.

(I'll be testing that theory of redirection when I go off to college!)

The more you try to resist, the harder it gets. You might never stop feeling sexually for him, or then it could happen in a few days. Only time will tell, your best chance is to be passive about it and find someone else. Finding someone might still not stop those feelings, though it can make u less obsessed about them.

Trust me when I say this is normal. We've all developed a crush and been really attracted to a straight guy we know. It happens. What you should do is just keep reminding yourself when you see him that it's not realistic and these feelings won't be acted on. Don't repress the fact you're attracted to him, acknowledge them and understand that its not a tenable outcome. Over time, the feelings will fade and you'll move on. It's shit to be attracted to someone you know won't reciprocate, but that's just part of growing up I guess

I have obsessed over many a straight guy :D. A few of my friends I have known for years are really hot but I would never tell that to their face because, well they know i'm gay and I know they are straight, and that would just be awkward. If you would rather just be friends with this guy then go for it. You will probably always have some level of attraction to him but I don't think that would prevent you two from just being friends even though it may make it a little harder.
Look I finally got a profile picture :D

Something I learned a very long time ago is that no matter how intense these things can feel, they can always be relieved by being realistic with yourself. Sexual attraction can cloud your judgement, but by either finding a more compatible person for your attraction or just simply jerking off a bit more frequently, you may be able to find a healthy way to make sure this doesn't infringe on your daily life. Best of luck! :keke:

I would love to jerk off more but I am so so bored with porn, I literally wank once a week now, it's so bad. I think I've lost my sex drive, but not a sexual attraction towards him.

Funnily enough, I had this exact same situation twice at school. I am no longer sexually attracted to one, because I low-key hate him, another, because he has gone to a different school. I still think about them, but not as strong as this current guy.

I want to remain friends with him, because friends are hard to come by with me but it is so difficult when sexual feelings clash.

Obviously every time I see him I do immediately put it into my head that he is not sexually attracted to me. But even him slightly taking a peek at me makes my mind going which means nothing. I keep holding on to the fact that something could potentially happen based on his 'behaviours'. I am essentially over analysing and I cannot stop.

Even still, I'm trying to get attention at work by doing things such as walking past him. It doesn't help that I see him once a week because I want him more

In an honesty, I just hate the way I feel towards certain people. I want to be 'normal' still even though I have somewhat accepted myself. It fucking sucks....
