It seems to me that the best re­la­tion­ships, the ones that last, are fre­quent­ly the ones that are root­ed in friend­ship. You know, one day you look at the per­son and you see some­thing more than you did the night be­fore. Like a switch has been flicked some­where. And the per­son who was just a friend is… sud­den­ly the on­ly per­son you can ever imag­ine your­self with.
