I also found that statement a bit alarming. Do you think that you’ve confused a deep platonic friendship with romantic love? It happens. Where people who have trouble connecting with other people, or have healthy relationships elsewhere in their lives conflate romantic and platonic love.

I mean, if you want to bonk her brains out – then yah, that’s a good sign you’re looking for romantic love and I’d advise you not get back on the treadmill. If you just envision spending time together (not in bed) then you may want to work with a therapist to unpack that and move that back to the friend side, although to be honest, it still may be best to keep your distance if you don’t think you can be the friend she needs you to be.
