Aro femme seeking same to be my smoochy, hand-holdy life companion! Let's catch a drink and see where things go, yeah?
Note: My profile contains terms you might not be familiar with. I've included wiki quotes at the bottom for your education! :>
H'lo, humans of the internet!
I'm SortaCharming. At least, I think so. I haven't been examined in years.
Joking aside, you can call me SC for now. My wardrobe and mannerisms swing between gender-neutral and flamboyantly femme, and I'd much prefer a partner with similar aesthetic! Butches are cool, but I'm not interested in intimate involvement with one. We can hang out if you want, tho. :)
More importantly! I'm a big ol' geek seeking a quasiplatonic, physically intimate relationship. I'm romance-neutral aromantic (see below), but I'm super duper affectionate! I love holding hands, kissing, etc. with women of all orientations.
In short: I'm looking for my Forever Girl, though not necessarily a girlfriend. I want a capital-C Companion — someone whom I can trust, expressed affection to, have fun and face life's ups and downs with, independent of romantic or sexual alignment. I'm not looking for someone to crush on. I'm looking for a relationship based on desire to take care of and intellectually stimulateone another, where falling in love is irrelevant.
My capacity for Companionate Love is humongo, and I'd love me a mainstay. :) Don't worry, I'm chill when things don't pan out. :D
Talk nerdy to me! Video games, manga, web media, fiction... If you're into it, I wanna hear about it. I'd list my own interests here if it wouldn't stretch this page by light-years.
Also! I'm a sucker for creatives, partial to writers and artists. If you can engage me intellectually, I'm practically already sold. Congratulations. ;)
So, that about covers it. I may not be looking for a wife, but I want a long-term figure to share my affection with! If you're down for casual dates, smooches, and mindless indulgence in all sorts of geekery, let me know. I wanna get to know you! :)
Companionate love is an intimate, non-passionate type of love that is stronger than friendship because of the element of long-term commitment. "This type of love is observed in long-term marriages where passion is no longer present" but where a deep affection and commitment remain. A person seeking a partner to share this manner of love with is seeking a Companion.
A quasi-platonic relationship is a relationship that is not romantic but involves a close emotional connection beyond what is generally considered a friendship. The prefix 'quasi-' comes from the Latin quasi, meaning “almost; similar but not exactly the same.” Thus, a quasi-platonic relationship is 'similar to, but not quite' what is socially defined as a romance.
An aromantic is an individual who does not experience romantic attraction (e.g. crushes). Aromantics may be repulsed by romance; others are neutral to, or even approving of romantic relations based on factors other than 'falling in love'.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For the talker type: Let's go someplace quiet and talk for awhile. You and me at the park; at a bookstore; at a cute little coffee house on Broadway. I love me a good chat.
For the doer type: Let's go to the mall or eat at a restaurant. Maybe we'll see a movie (great bonding agent!) or window shop? If you won't lose me, take me around the city. Let's buy snacks from a food stall and laugh over a day well spent.
