Pedophile is used in negative connotation to mean one who is sexually interested in children.

Interesting. So many philes in the world! For a long time the only phile type I knew of was Pedophile. Funny, all the other philes are positive, but loving children is considered sexual attraction and negative. Pedo(children) phile(love). Why isn’t PEDOPHILE a person who loves children? Why is it sexual attraction to children?

I’m got heliophila and thalossaphile tatted on my arms and was looking for a particular “phile” I wanted in my sleeve..hence what brought me to this site,but can’t find it! It means “lover of a certain place of calming” …yes Iv googled and looked through the urban dictionary and can’t find it..starts with a “S” ends with”phile” …if anyone can find it PLEASE lemme know-Thanks!

What is a person who loves abandoned structures, particularly abandoned and dilapidated commercial / induatrial buildings?

Quite the opposite and nsfw.

An autophile is defined as either “an automobile enthusiast” or “self-love; narcissism”. But maybe the definition given in the post was found in a different dictionary. Autophile is not very common and a lot of dictionaries don’t have it listed.
