The dictionary definition is what it is. I don't understand how it can be "disagreed" on. You might as well disagree about the spelling. Then you look it up in the dictionary. That's all there is to it. You can run around saying that you'll spell it however you want, but that's kind of silly. Same with definitions. Words sometimes have more than one usage, but you will not find one word that means both "A" and "not-A".
It's more likely that Mono simply does not have "intimate" friendships, but can only "be" intimate with someone that he is in love with.
Other people can experience intimacy with people they are not in love with, and can express it in other ways besides sex.
These situations stand on their own; neither circumstance changes the "definition" of "intimacy".
