How do you deal with platonic friendships, if you think someone might be interested in you? For example, you like going for walks with someone but don't want to lead them on.

I think very few of the aromantic members on WP would bother going to the L&D section due to them having no interest in romantic relationships. You'd probably have more resonses in another section like Social Skills & Making Friends

Read that as 'aromatic people' as first, and I was about to suggest some perfume brands.

I don't know. I'm not aeromantic. We Germans are very romantic, especially during Oktoberfest season.

People get together to eat and drink and than they kiss.
