nonmerci Posted September 5, 2019 Share Posted September 5, 2019 Hi everyone! So, after seeing this term on this forum I start wondering if I can be non-alterous somehow. But it's hard to find information about it. So, it seems the term is recent. For the definitions I find, an alterous relationship or attraction would be somewhere between platonic and romantic; a definition that I don't like because it would place romantic and platonic on the same scale when I see them as different. But it seems to describe QPR. So I would describe alterous as being attracted or desire a relationship that is not conventional. And being non-alterous or analterous would be the contrary. I also saw once a definition that I like of non alterous : no desire for a special relationship or connection with one person. I personally find this term useful, because I can say that I am not interesting in a QPR, or a special one-to-one relationship that would be different from friendship. But I am the only one? Is there other person here who identify with this label? Do I understand it correctly? I think I saw @Mark talk about it here, so I'm interesed to hear them on this subject. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
