I don't know..I don't think that you can truly have one without the other. Friends, well, if they are a true friend, you love them, right? And using my husband as an example, a true love has to be based on friendship. You have to LIKE the person before you can really love them. My husband is my best friend. When we first decided to become 'an item', we were both leary of messing up the friendship. But, we still have that now, and so much more. People still comment on how close we are after 10 years of marriage and 13 years together. Friendship and love are just different degrees of the same thing, in my opinion!

This is a toughey! I believe that you can have both within a friendship, you can easily love your friend! Most relationships of mine started as friends, for I have trust issues! I really dont know how to respond to this one!

Definetly a hard one! A good love could come from a friendship and a good friendship can come up from a love. I have faced both, and is hard to go either way. I have this friend that when I met him, I was pretty attracted to him and he was attracted to me. But as we started to know each other we just pushed ourselves to the "friends zone" and never went out of there. I dont think now it would be a good idea to cross that line between friendship and something else. I guess it could just ruin things. So for that example I guess you could say its better to have a friend... but I dont know... what if you find somebody that it would be a waste just to be friends and that person is the one? If that happens you would have both, a friend and love!!!! its hard to say!

Hmm.. this one is tough. But I dont think either would be better than the other. Both are probably two of the best things that could happen to a person in a lifetime. Having found true friendship.. and having found their one true love. :) So, to tell you the truth and nothing but the truth.. lols, I cant really choose between these two. But if I had to, it would essentially depend on the situation I would be in. For a particular instance, what should I do if I, say, began to like someone very much... and that someone happens to be my best buddy! And the question that would pop up in my mind would be along the lines of "Should I tell him or not? But, if I did tell him... how could I do that without compromising our friendship?" What a headache eh? hehehehe... so, If that happened... hmmm... I would just probably choose to tell him, hehehe then see how things work out. :) If he would not feel the same way, I would just simply continue to a loving loyal friend of his:) and thats that. hehehe Blessed be. :)

Friendship really is better, in my experience. Love is something that can be so shortlived. I have friends that I've had for a decade. The longest romatic relationship I've ever had was 4 years. Although I wouldnt trade those 4 years for the world, I cant help but think maybe it would have been better to just be friends, and he'd still be my friend today.
