Adornic is a type of alterous attraction based off of adoration for one or more others. This type of attraction can be described as administration for the other(s). It should feel warm and comfortable. Adornic attraction thrives off of happiness, two (or more) people in an adornic relationship should make eachother happy, laugh, and overall give them a warm feeling that is unlike that of romantic attraction.
It's different from doraric attraction because doraric follows love that isn’t platonic or romantic. Adornic isn’t love of any by typical standards, it’s more of an (healthy) emotional attachment. You can love someone in an adornic relationship but it isn’t necessarily part of that type of attraction. The feeling one could get with adornic is between love and admiring.
