You might have to put more work in to find a queer platonic relationship, but with all the people in this world I think it is completely possible. IDK if 'date' would be the right word Sounds kind of romantic-y. I assume they'd meet on Aven or some place similar though? That'd probably depend on the person, since not everyone is a fan of finding a partner through technological means. I have no ideal how to date Am aro i like to have someone boyfriends-ish. But trying to explain how aro relation work is The thing with dating and being aro it like dating for ace the dating is not really big.
So it make thing Meet-up with a QP or something?

I guess acebook or something along those lines would be good for that. I have no inner concept of romance.. So the things I do would never be romantic. To me a date would be like a planned out meeting with a friend or partner that would be like a special event..
What Romantic Relationships Are Like for Me as an Aromantic Person
I can't relate to romance so I feel calling anything I do romantic would be forcing a concept onto me that is completely foreign. I identify myself as an ace and an aro although more between aro and demi-aro, so lets just say on the aro spectrum. Before admitting to myself that I was ace I kinda knew I was, since I never wanted to have sex or never felt the desire for such activity , I tried many kinds of relationship, from being in an exclusive relation to open relations also called anarchist relationships.
So here's what I think of dating as an aro although, aro is a vague term and the spectrum is an umbrella for many types of aros. This person will prioritize the time they spend with you, so it's pretty similar to a platonic relation for the pros;. Having someone with whom you can cuddle, kiss and make out with if you're into, which is my case.
But still, I found it to be the best. If you can have this with an ace, it's even better! But of course, it's not an issue that comes from the relation itself, more from me. So do aros date? Why not, if that's your thing. But at the same time, the more restricted and exclusive your relationship is, the more the chances your partner will want to have a deep-romantic relation. Some aro people who date perhaps like the physical affection, perhaps the attention, the sex, the emotional intimacy, etc.

An aromantic person is fully capable of performing to the standards of romance I have done so myself , but perhaps has to remind themselves how to act around their person. I'd consider a cupioromantic person still aro or greyro , the same way as for example lesbian who does full service sex work and has male clients is still a lesbian.
If you are not romance repulsed, it does not distess you in any way, and your partner is cool with you not having romantic feelings for them, then why not? I guess that, I'm trying to make grey more popular, hehe, shoot me I'm a rebel. Personally I wonder consider that being romance favourable or just curious. Or confused, like I am.
Since the definition of cupioromantic is someone who is aromantic and wants a romantic relationship. IME these can very big "ifs". Unless they were forced to do so, there is not really another option. I am gray aromantic but more aro,though and I want to date. I personally would like to date to find a QPR, I really don't need any romance involved. I feel the exact same way. I wouldn't be opposed to having a romantic relationship and I maybe even desire one.
I just never feel the romantic attraction.
