So I have this friend who identifies as gender-neutral (I identify as male), and when we met, we found out we have several interests in common. We kept hanging out, and built a good friendship. I found myself developing feelings for them, but not only do they have a zucchini, they have anxiety, which makes it difficult to open up with my feelings for them. I don't want them to break up with their zucchini, but can't stop thinking about being in a queer platonic relationship with them, or at least be open with them about my feelings but am nervous that I will either freak them out or ruin our friendship. What do I do?

First, you have to sort out your feelings. Once that is done, do you want a friend or more? If more, you've got to let them know. If they feel the same, go for it. If they don't you can still salvage the friendship if you want to.
