Having been absent for this week otherwise, here’s a Friday reblog.
Despite being an allosexual alloromantic person, I agree with this completely. I’ve been doing reading about poly relationships lately, and more than just my sexual/romantic relationships, it’s made me reconsider my friendships — especially my friendships with my awesome best friends. Because not all my friends turn into “best friends” and sometimes even those don’t always stick around, though it’s usually due to long distance friendship being just as difficult as a long distance relationship, though in other ways. And it’s really too bad that our society doesn’t currently have a term for extremely strong friendships, and doesn’t consider friendships to be as “good” as romantic/sexual relationships. But I’m glad that I can see that changing, even if it’s a slow change.
