Companionate love can be an umbrella term or a stand-alone identity. Companionate love is where one does not wish to have a romantic or sexual relationship but still wants a deep relationship with someone. It can be an umbrella term for alterous attraction, platonic love, sensual attraction, or anything that does not fall into a sexual or romantic relationship, or it can be used more specifically as a stand-alone term. If one was to use companionate as a stand-alone term, they would probably feel a deep emotional bond with someone, and they may want to spend their life with them, but in no way is this bond romantic or sexual. It is different from an iodic or queerplatonic relationship as there is no romantic attraction involved whatsoever. This is also on the asexual and aromantic spectrum.
