GhostyPeppers Posted July 31, 2020 Share Posted July 31, 2020 I have a very weird question for anybody in the aro-spectrum: Do you think your aromantic orientation impacts your relationship between friends? I guess I've always had a strong platonic connection with other people, yet it took me many years to realize that a lot of allos don't see friendship that way or feel platonic feelings that strongly (bit of a generalization, though). I mean, I rarely get bummed out over past relationships after a short period of time, but it is really hard for me to get over a loss of a friend, even if it's been 2-3 years since it happened. I also find myself getting an emotional high when a friend says ILY (platonically) or expresses some sort of approval. Alloromantic people?? Don't seem to react the same way as far as I've seen personally? I don't want to make it sound like I don't think allos experience platonic love at all, but I've been told my dedication to friends is more on the extreme side. I would like to hear how you think your aromanticism impacts how you see/interact with your friends and non-romantic loved ones. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
