Not every meaningful relationship between a man and a woman must involve sex.

Gosh, are the ones missing out who do not understand or believe this to be true. Platonic connections between men and women are just as valuable, meaningful, worthwhile, and beautiful, as a romantic connection can be. In some ways, they can be even more so. Why as a culture do we not understand or speak about this?

Love between men and women need not be synonymous with romance or sexual intercourse.

Often times, platonic love results in even greater worth, joy, and meaning over the long term and big picture than a sexual encounter or romance may have.
