I would post this in the ME1 section, but didn't seem like many people went there. I was replaying ME1 after already completing it a few times so I could have no relationship, to have a good class for insanity on ME2 while still having all the story decisions still made completely by me. Even though I never talked romantically to any squadmates whatsoever, Ashley still came up to my Shepard as if I talked to her as much as I did to Liara (so I could continue the romance til ME3).
I looked before and someone said that if I talked to Ashley even once that she would be considered my romance option for ME1. So would not talking to her at all work? Though I was thinking now that I could just have her die instead of the other guy (completely forgot his name because I always had him die).
Does anyone know a sure way to not have a relationship in ME1? I'm doing this so I can have the relationship with Tali in ME2 without any consequences of having a relationship before in ME3. Thanks!
