Imagine spending the rest of your life with your best friend by your side. Well, one TikToker has turned conventional relationship norms on their head by detailing (and living) her dream platonic relationship.
April Lexie Lee (@psychottie) took to her 15,000 followers in a bid to “normalise platonic life partners.” She explained how her best friend, who she described as her “platonic love of her life”, moved across the world from Singapore to Los Angeles to spend the rest of their lives together.
After 11 years of friendship, April revealed that friends and family questioned whether the pair were “f**cking crazy”, in which the TikToker raised a valid point that they wouldn’t have been “questioned about this as much if [they] were lovers.”
“We see a life together, we want to buy a house together, we want to start a retirement fund together. We might even adopt a child together and raise it as friends,” she explained, to which one enlightened viewer responded, “My mind is blown right now. It just never occurred to me this was an option, and I love it and I want it!”
