I too was confused by it at first, but I mean, looking more into it, they're living together, touchy feely with one another, and the tag is Yuri so i'm assuming it's one of those relationships where you're both in love, dating, but behave more like best friends than lovers.

There are a whole lot of perplexing things about this, but the weirdest is that one lady who's like "I always thought you were pretty, so I'm going to tell you that I got engaged!"

A best friends only couple relationship is pretty much the definition of an asexual relationship. But, it's probably just me interpreting it as such since many movies and stories have already overused the insipid need behind wanting a relationship/marriage is solely 'just to have sex'.

Hmm, I had to skim through it a 2nd time, and it kind of reminds me of the relationship Yuu and Touko had in the beginning of Bloom Into You lol, I still wish we could've gotten more context on it tho, the Yuri tag is kind of throwing me off tbh..

I'm guessing the yuri tag is there mostly because this story comes from an office lady yuri anthology, so even if the yuri isn't explicit, it is implied by that fact alone. Just a guess though. I liked this one just fine, but I don't see myself coming back to it in the future. It just lacks something I can't quite put my finger on.

Very nice storyline and it’s so real.

This is more the story of heteronormative/sexist pressures in the work place and that marriage is something that's not for you if you're gay. That's how I see it, anyway. You can't really say much at work regarding your personal life and everyone thinks you're single and should be married to get that nuclear family started up.

Except they're not living together. Mai asks if she can visit, although they are close enough for her to just go ahead and for them to be relaxed around each other. Given only this, Mai's first reaction to the hint of a confession, and the part about Saki's heart withering, together suggest to me that they aren't in a relationship. Mai could even be married while being an old and close friend, or having a sisterly role in Saki's life. (Mai's later disappointment may be a sign of her feelings that aren't reciprocated by Saki, but it could have various other meanings, too.)

though Saki told her collegues that she decided to remain single, she's actualy in a relationship with Mai, right? After all a friend won't hug you from behind going all "I want you to be squishier" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) right?

It’s easy to see from context clues they only recently got together, with the other women probably initiating since she talks about how good the MC looks from a distant. In that angle the stories kind of about her getting used to the fact she isn’t single anymore and does have someone to go home goo, even if she hasn’t fully committed herself yet.

Hopefully one day they will be able to marry when Japan decides to legalize marriage, even happier ending.

I actually wanted to stop by for a completely different reason, which is that I love the credits page picture. Touhou for the win.

Except they're not living together.

Well Mai has the keys to Saki's place for some reason.

End takeaway for me no matter if they're in a relationship or not is just how together they can keep each other's flowers watered. In the non-sexual sense. XD

This is a pretty standard yuri story
It definitely looks like they're in a relationship and you don't have to live together to be in one

Fucking lmao, no. Speaking as an asexual, no. Asexuals are more than capable of romantic feelings. You're conflating asexual with aromantic.
