Yeah! I've always experienced the development of a friendship like this as a "friends and more" rather than a "more than friends". The latter seems to imply that friendship has been transcended, or it's a different track, somehow... Whereas the first (to me) feels more of a layering, with friendship as the core. Regardless, I love that this phenomenon seems quite common. Many people speak of their closest loves as their best friends.
