Nope. Sex isn't "impure" and no sex "pure". like frick, who even decided that.

Well, really it doesn't matter as long as the parties involved are happy to be around each other~
In all honesty I'd say that they're both as sincere as each other
However I'd also say that for me it's more the platonic thing because fears of sex and whatnot but shh

Hah, I think it's normal to be afraid of it at first, you just need to take your time in your relationship and if you feel ready, then you should go for it. If not, then you don't have to c:

People who judge a relationship negatively based on if they are intimate or not need to just stop.

Truely depends on the people.
But as a male, i think there needs to at least be a little physical-ness ;)
But i have seen many a relationship thrive plutonically. All depends on who they are.

Yea, indeed. Some people can't be in a sexual or a platonic relationship, others can be in either.

tbh this is one of the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard
the sincerity of a relationship should not be based on whether or not there is physical love or if there isn't. it should be more based upon how they treat each other emotionally, if they truly care about how the other is feeling.
the lack or abundance of sex in a relationship really defines nothing to me

It is a bit ridiculous, yes. Recently I saw a stamp or something being all "I love you with my heart only" and it's just... as if being in a sexual relationship means that your love comes from your genitals.
It doesn't matter much if people have sex or not, as long as they both are alright with having or not having it.

Whether or not you have sex doesn't determine the sincerity of a relationship. The way the people in it treat each other does, however.

Just because a couple enjoys having sex doesn't mean they're any less sincere or real as a couple!

Disagree, at least for the most part. Sex can really make the bond between two people stronger and can be a very healthy way of showing affection. However, if the relationship is only about sex, I would not consider it very..Pure or good? ._. Not that it was necessarily bad either, just..Not really my cup of tea, I suppose? ^^'
I personally could survive without it, but would kinda prefer having at least some sex in the relationship ouo'

disagree though agree in some ways. if the relationship is purely about the sex it obviously isn't pure, though love can also be expressed through sex also.

Um... Yes and No? Although I've never actually been in a relationship before. 
At least I don't think I was... my crush just sort of told me he liked me and I said I liked him too and then nothing else happened.

Although I'm 70% sure i'm asexual or at least demisexual.

It's nowhere near that black and white, a healthy relationship is equal parts emotional and physical.

Depends. You'd think it would be, but you never know. Anyway this is a physical world so if you both benefit from physical interaction, that doesn't make it less sincere.

It's funny how people seem to assume it would be, though :0 I wonder where that comes from. I guess it's the image sex has.

It's like the concept of gifts in a relationship. It's not material just cause it's a physical object, the thought behind it, the sacrifice made for it, yeah, just cause something's oh so physical and not spiritual doesn't make it selfish or materialistic or whatever.

blah i'm tired
