An opinion I sometimes see regarding relationships: "A platonic relationship generally is more pure and sincere than a relationship that involves sex." Agree or disagree?

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.

Exactly, you don't know what it's like unless you're in it.

tbh i think that any relationship is a healthy one as long as everyone involved is happy.

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.

to quote the Grand Budapest Hotel,
"it depends, well of course it depends, you could say that about just about anything, of course it depends, of course it depends of course it depends..."

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.
