Are QP's considered s/o's?

Just a random thing I was wondering. Are queerplatonic partners considered significant others, or does s/o imply romanticism? I could see it either way.

AFAIK it depends on who's involved. Two people might agree that their relationship is deeper and more entangled than a traditional friendship, and be like "yeah I guess we're QP" and leave it at that. For two more people, their QPR is a committed relationship, and they could consider themselves significant others due to that. Though I can also see QP partners being uncomfortable using the term "significant other" because of its romantic connotations.

For me, I'd like a more committed QPR and would most likely see my partner as a significant other.

I personally would find it troubling because it would imply hierarchies, though of course I may end up prioritizing time with one person over another, so who knows?

But like others have said, it really depends on the people involved and their personal preferences about labels.
