Again, it doesn't really matter what you call it - as long as you define your terms (when discussing things on a board like this - where people may define terms differently) and everyone is in agreement about what the expectations are.

PS - I just have to point out, to be brutally honest, ANY relationship can "be ended by either person, for any reason, at any moment" - it takes two to tango. It's just that in a casual-type situation that is more expected and less painful.
Sorry, I meant the PHYSICAL relationship could be ended at any point. The friendship usually continues; although I have lost friendships that just became too awkward after that...

Emotional relationships generally don't end that cleanly.
