So I dated someone who is now my best friend, and I'm trying to figure out what they have. I know, as well as he does, that he has a disorder, either sexual, emotional, or based around PTSD.

But I'm truely not sure what it is. It seems that he has gone through a lot in his life, from taking care of his mother at a young age, to living in a cult from his birth to his 16th year of life. he is now 19, and still has a lot of problems.

Before he dated me, he still held emotion, but after the break up we had, which appened two years ago, his emotions seemed to get messed up.

He still feels romantic attractions, but RARELY, and often can go months without feeling truely happy.

We had a rough break up, and right after the break up was when he turned rather null to his emotions. HE said that what he did was try his hardest to bloc kaway the emotion and hide them the best he could.
Now he doesn't get these emotions with ANYBODY....and he also for some reason has a weird increased physical attraction to me which is unlike any other person.

So it seems like he might have replaced his romantic attraction with a physical attraction somehow. I was curious if anyone might know of a disorder that could fall under that.

I don't even care if he feels for me anymore, I just want him to be able to feel for someone. He deserves it.
