i know i joke about it, but i am legit seriously worried i’m going to be alone my whole life.
not alone for friendships. but alone as far as romance/sex/partnership.
What is being alone if you have friendships? Sex and romance can be good, exciting, entertaining etc. and sex and romance with someone you are actually friends with can be even more so. But at the end of the day, sex is just sex, and romance is…well, what is romance even?
Maybe sex just enables two people to become closer than people who aren’t physical with each other. It is the intimacy that enables a mental connection to become even deeper. But what about other types of intimacies? Like taking after your non-sexual friend when they are sick, and immersing yourself in everything non-sexually physical about them.
What really is the difference between a partnership and a friend? Is it just sex? What really is it that makes this difference?
I’m inclined to believe that it is just the sexual side of the relationship that a ‘just friend’ relationship lacks. Is this factor really so important in making someone feel alone?
Sorry for rambling….
