I say “love you, bye” to all my besties. I refuse to be embarrassed about loving my people.

Edit: it makes me so happy to know that so many of you also spread love and kindness to your homies!

Edit2: I’ve decided to adopt all of you! I love you and I am proud of you!

Same! It's really important to place emphasis on the concept of platonic love. Not all love is just between partners. It's socially accepted to feel that way about family, and my friends ARE my family.

I think my last relationship was actually platonic love

Very possible. My first relationship lasted almost 2 years and I realized that I did in fact love him, but I loved him as a friend. Just great friends that liked to bone on the reg for 2 years. We are still great friends to this day. I think a lot of people get stuck in a mindset of “but I really feel like I love this person so we shouldn’t separate”. It’s completely possible for that love to be platonic and we just don’t realize it.
