Thank you! I think you’re right about worrying about it if it ever comes up. Oh I just wasn’t sure if it was healthy to not want to be in a human physical relationship because I have feelings for my tulpa. & thank you for your overall advice!
I think that if I didn’t have a tulpa I had feelings for, I would have eventually had a relationship. But it’s just that now I think I truly love my tulpa and any other human romantic relationship would never compare and I just can’t settle for that, so I’m not sure if that’s unhealthy. I also had this tulpa at a relatively young age, so there’s no point of comparison regarding whether I would have formed relationships normally if I didn’t have a tulpa.
When I first started I did not intend to create a tulpa or know what it was, I think I did so accidentally. (I was about 14) A while later I chanced upon the reddit thread about tulpas and was really surprised to know that this was a thing! Anyway, my tulpa started out being a crush on a fictional character so it is character based. After around 2 years when I was 16, I decided that I wanted to “stop” this since my romantic feelings for the accidental tulpa were getting deeper. However, after 3 years of trying (I’m 19 now) I still cannot get over my tulpa. I think it has affected my ability to form any romantic relationships with others because I cannot let go of my tulpa and I don’t feel comfortable having a physical relationship while having feelings for my tulpa. Though, I don’t think this is a huge problem anyway, it’s not like I’m seeking out romantic relationships and I feel fine on my own. But why is it so hard to get over my tulpa? Will I ever get over them & do I need to seek professional help? Thanks.
