Soul Ties 23 – Platonic Relationships 1


Welcome to #SoulTies 23. In this session, we start looking at platonic relationships. What are platonic relationships? Are they necessary? Are they really safe? Can they be maintained without any sexual involvement? What has the bible got to say about them?

Good evening y’all. “Platonic relationships” starts now. Hope you all had a great week so far.

1. I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or stigmatise anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies

2. We are here to expose #SoulTies as the works of the enemy that the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from.

3. We are also not here to provide excuses and reasons for Christians to continue in sin due to a misunderstanding of grace. #SoulTies

4. The Bible states clearly in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death #SoulTies is no excuse for us to continue in sin

5. We are here to work out our salvation (that Jesus already paid with His blood) from #SoulTies according to God?s word.

6. Tonight we are attempting to look into d subject of platonic relationships, in d context of #SoulTies. Are they good or are they bad?

7. Please follow @SoulTiesTweets an account dedicated solely to #SoulTies just for you to read #SoulTies stuff. Kindly RT.

8. Just before we dive into business, I want to tell you about our #SoulTies blog.

9. will be single repository for all our #SoulTies resources. We have all the #SoulTies tweet casts there for you.

10. Also, you can send me questions, testimonies & prayer points through the “Contact Us” page #SoulTies

11. Please visit d blog, leave your comments, spread the news using the FB, Twitter share buttons. #SoulTies

12. Platonic relationships. What are they? Are they good or are they bad? Should we do them or not? #SoulTies

13. Defn: A platonic relationship is pure affection, subsisting between persons of opposite sex, unmixed with sexual desires. #SoulTies

14. Remember, I have previously said before that most men interpret love through their organs and women through their hearts. #SoulTies

15. Hence, d ultimate way you prove love to a carnal & uncircumcised man is to have sex with him. Works differently for women. #SoulTies

16. I know this through past experience and continuous observation even up till a few hours ago on twitter. #SoulTies

17. You check this tweet out. ==> Almost all the respondents said they wouldn’t go that far without sex. #SoulTies

18. Most women however are very ok with relating with men without having sexual desires towards them or involvement with them. #SoulTies

19. Looking at the makeup of both men and women, platonic relationships hold a better attraction for women than for most men. #SoulTies

20. Bear in mind that our defn of a platonic relationship excludes sexual activity so this is more comfy for women than men. #SoulTies

21. Next question is, why the need for platonic relationships? Why do we think they are necessary in life? #SoulTies

22. First, all relationships (excluding romantic ones) provide an avenue through which people can be blessed or destroyed. #SoulTies

23. Some relationships can help you and some relationships can destroy you. #SoulTies Letís focus on the positive ones today. #SoulTies

24. From yesterday, we learnt women seek an outlet of expression in times of distress & platonics matter to them a lot more. #SoulTies

25. Relationships are channels through which information, advise, counsel, strength, comfort and succour are given to anyone. #SoulTies

26. Technically, relationships I described in (25) are fully ok between same normal sane-sex people with no emotional strings. #SoulTies

27. However, there are times when these relationships can involve people of the opposite sex expecting no emotional strings. #SoulTies

28. Technically, you cannot pass through life successfully without relating with men & women, boys & girls to help you. #SoulTies

29. So I submit here that all relationships (excluding marital and sexual) are necessary for your healthy evolvement in life. #SoulTies

30. However, our spotlight goes on these ëharmlessí relationships that then occur between men and women. #SoulTies

31. There is an element of risk that we want to study here that exists in platonic relationships between men & women. #SoulTies

32. These platonic relationships we are discussing are intended with no romantic strings attached. #SoulTies

33. But how many times have we seen platonic relationships evolve into a higher level that was never originally intended. #SoulTies

34. Even when these relationships outlive their usefulness and expire, we see that one party doesn’t want to let go. #SoulTies

35. I once had a platonic relationship for 3 years. From day 1, we were fully friend-zoned. No romantic or marriage thoughts. #SoulTies

36. I announced to her one night that I was proposing to Moni in the next few days and you see what happened in the next tweet. #SoulTies

37. She instantly told me that she had feelings for me and that set me into confusion for the next few days. #SoulTies

38. I had to withdraw to my prayer cave to sort things out as to where I should be headed. #SoulTies

39. We started from day 1 as fully friend zoned. So what happened? How come she caught the feelings and I didnít? #SoulTies

40. How did things evolve from being fully friend-zoned to having caught feelings? #SoulTies

41. Seriously, I don’t know when our relationship status changed from friend-zoned to anything else. #SoulTies

42. I was confused. I reminded her of our initial agreement and she said that feelings developed along the way. #SoulTies

43. Ladies: I have a very serious warning for you here. #SoulTies

44. Anyone you don’t banish from your life and put into the friend zone can climb out to ultimately have you. #SoulTies

45. This is how the game is played. #SoulTies Read on.

46. He can stay in your friend zone but then make himself very indispensable by always being there. #SoulTies

47. Theres something about always being there that will eventually break your defences down. #SoulTies

48. Then when your defences are broken, he can either marry you or just have sex with you. #SoulTies

49. I had no logical explanation for this until I started studying #SoulTies

50. Platonic relationships with no proposed termination date, even with boundaries defined, hardly ever stay the same forever. #SoulTies

51. Most platonic relationships are safe havens for women where they can share their sorrows and numb their pains. #SoulTies

52. Many platonic relationships are havens where women run to for refuge from emotional abandonment. #SoulTies

53. Many platonic relationships are operated in the work place because its where you spend 8-12 hours of your daily life. #SoulTies

54. Many platonic relationships are operated in the work place because its safe away from the hawk eyes of your spouse. #SoulTies

55. Many platonic relationships are operated without the knowledge of spouses as they constitute secret fountains of counsel. #SoulTies

56. Many platonic relationships are like cocaine fixes that numb the pain you are experiencing in your marriage. #SoulTies

57. Many platonic relationships are like cocaine fixes that u become addicted to that you cant get out of your system anymore. #SoulTies

58. Many platonic relationships become a secret source of fulfilment for the woman that is more precious than marriage. #SoulTies

59. A woman, who has been emotionally abused by her husband before leaving home comes back home with a spring in her step. #SoulTies

60. How come? she comes back home with a spring in her step because she has had her fix from the platonic friend. #SoulTies

61. Platonic relationships are so convenient for women because they supposedly hold no sexual risk or danger to them. #SoulTies

62. However, women are unaware that this arrangement doesn’t particularly suit many men. Iíll explain. #SoulTies

63. Feelings are like ladders. You climb them step by step. You climb one today and look for the next one to climb tomorrow. #SoulTies

64. Women climb theirs to a satisfactory level in platonic relationships without sex. Most men need one more step. SEX. #SoulTies

65. Remember the tweet I referred you to earlier. All the respondents said the journey wasn’t worth it without sex #SoulTies

66. I once received a tweet from a man who said that platonic relationships only favour women & theres nothing for him there. #SoulTies

67. Yes, you started with we are fully friend-zoned. However, lady can catch feelings, the man can catch a sexual desire. #SoulTies

68. Guys, there has to be a part 2, I haven’t finished with this. We barely scratched the surface. Lets meet next weekend. #SoulTies
