Since Roman times, and before of course, the value of friendship is clear - here is someone who listens to you and you want to listen to them as well. Naturally understanding results.
Friendship means more than being an associate or casual acquaintance for a period of time. It's a deeper connection and tends to last many years, even a lifetime, even when we are separated by circumstances. Because values are shared, we have important things in common, rather like family - even if in other ways we are quite different.

This cultural shift has created a new norm in which people generally keep their sexual involvement and friendships separate. Do some friendships turn into romantic relationships? Yes. And thank goodness for that; it’s been the beginning of many a great marriage. Continues
