But that belies the depth of feeling for each other and the sexual component. It's been difficult for us to find one term that describes the nature of our relationship.
Lately, he has been referring to me as his playmate, which makes giggle.
It is not uncommon for people to have this kind of relationship, I see love as a wonderful feeling I feel for some one every thing else is relative and subjective to those involved, but every one has their definition of "love".~
