The End of Romantic and Starts of Platonic Relationship: Is That Possible?
April 8, 2016 5:01pm CST
This is still the sentiment of my dear friend who had been cheated by his partner. The relationship had ended for more than 2 years. The ex-partner had offered him a platonic relationship and will end the romantic part. Thus, it is a sign of falling out of love within the relationship. My friend was so devastated and caught off guard with the situation. The reason, the ex-partner found a new special person during the relationship period of my friend. At this point of time, my friend refused the offer of having a platonic relationship with her. He is confused of ending the romantic part of the relationship and continue the platonic relationship. Is there really difference between romantic and platonic?

Of course there's a real big difference between a romantic and platonic relationship. Judging from what happened to their relationship, it's impossible to have a platonic one. I would stay away as far as possible from the one who cheated on me.

Well yes there is a huge difference as the romance has gone. It is rare that this type of platonic can survive after being romantically involved I think. Though what do I know as romance is not my specialty. It is sad for the person who still wants the romantic part. Also who wants to settle for second best? Move on and get another romance.

Nice question. One is like a banquet you see being served to heads of states and dignitaries. The other is like the food you eat at home. Looking at banquets helps you develop your appetite, which I guess is a good thing. But moving out from center court to sit and watch with the audience may not be palatable. Better would be to move to some other game altogether.
