“I have heard of alterous attraction, but I cannot understand what it actually means, practically speaking.
What I found on google is that it is based on emotional closeness. I understand how that differs from romantic attraction, because in that case emotional closeness is not the only factor, but romantic gestures are involved, ecc… But how does it differ from platonic attraction? I assumed platonic bonds were about emotional closeness as well.
I am not trying to invalidate anyone, I just need actual practical examples of how these two types of attractions differ.”
