Romantic or platonic ?

Question

So I've been wondering whether I am aro, and I say that because when I would imagine myself with a girlfriend, it would really just be imagining that we're good friends, and I do this to strangers also- I imagine what it would be like if we were friends. Does this sound familiar to any of you?

Romance has a tendency to evolve into sexual attraction (and is an integral part of it) and eventual sex. Platonic is a meeting of minds and common bonds. Only in the sexual sphere can it lead to sex (usually with a bad ending, few friendships last when a sex break up happens).

I think sexual attraction nearly always precedes romance.  For most sexuals, anyway.  But I can't see how one can have romance without sexuality ... Cause platonic 'romance' is just friendship, not romance.

I agree for sexuals this is true. And I have in the past romanced people, but only by going through the motions (it meant nothing to me). I no longer do this as it is morally wrong to mislead the other person. You are playing with peoples emotions by doing so.
