Platonic Love

Platonic love takes its name from the famous Classical Greek philosopher, Plato (428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 BC).

Plato wrote about love in his work, the Symposium, a dialogue where the guests of a banquet each gave speeches in honor of the god Eros and debated the true meaning of love.

4 Characteristics Of Platonic Love: A Relationship Of A Different Kind

Relationships are a funny thing.
They can be heartbreaking.
They can be heartwarming.
Soul sucking
But also a blessing.

Relationships are beautiful
They can be scary
They can be overwhelming
But also life learning.

I have had very few intimate relationships but the ones I have had are life learning, heartbreaking, but beautiful. Each one of my relationships have truly brought me something. I loved each one of them before I even knew why.

Relationships can be lovers, boyfriends, girlfriends, pets, parents, coworkers, siblings. It is whatever you want it to be.
My friendships have always been more complex, never too close but not too far so you can’t depend on me. It’s always been a little mystery with it.

Relationships have never been my strong suit. I have always sucked at them, in marriage, as a lover, friendships, even with siblings. I fall short most times, I have been working hard at them but some of them I still can’t get right, and that’s okay.

I am learning in relationships, it’s my fault, I’m the problem and I will work on it, not now, but I will.
I am building more relationships.
I want to build more relationships with people, because they will see the light I have within, so they can say our relationship is a funny thing, beautiful, scary, but heartwarming.
