Don't you think they are related enough to be blended sometimes?

If you're thinking about romantic love, then the best person to be in love with is your friend. There is love in friendship, and lovers should be the best of friends. Is there any distinction here between being friends and being lovers? I purposely blurred the distinction here because for me, they go together hand in hand. You cannot have one without the other. Friendship is nurtured by love, and love flourishes when friends share what they have. Isn't there a song entitled "Friends and Lovers"? Or was it a movie? Anyway, what's important the one we love is our friend. And if that is the wife or the husband, much better.

There's only a thin line between love and friendship. That's why I never choose to be close with a guy. If I'm very familiar with him and share secrets with hime and know everything about him , he will certainly think I understand him much much better than his girl friend or wife and will think I am smart and considerate because I will never ask him to stop playing computer games or to do this or do that like his wife does. Things will easily get out of hand.

I think one just start out as aquantancies and then become friends once they get to know each other well and enjoy each other's company. And when two people who are just friends start to take special liking for each other developed special bond over period of time, true love can happen. As they really look out, take care and start love each other.

I always say that I could marry my best friend. Yes, love is very close to friendship and the best couples are people who are not only lovers but also good friends.

may be very thin line between these two. But i think love demands too much. Friendship demands only the trueccare and all. sometimes friendship turns into love also.

Line is called atraction, this atraction make us to see the differences between friendship and love. Sometimes is to easy to cross this line, a nice frienship can be very easy transformed in a great love story. Never a love story can't be a great friendship story

I think that once a friendship has been establish, and has had a chance to grow, love is always the outcome. Mabye not the lovey dovey kind of love, but love in a sense that you care about that person, and what happens to them in life. I think every true friendship has to have some degree of love in it.

I think that it is very much related because some friendships end with love while some starts out as love and ends up with love. :) the absence of either one in a relationship can be pretty tough. :D
