It goes without saying that you obviously won’t be going weeks, months, or years without seeing your significant other – but the understood, mutually felt longevity of your relationship provides you both with a secure, solid feeling that provides the comfort of knowing he or she is in it for the long haul. When you are with someone, you are not only friends with them when things are great.
You stand by them when they need you for support as they do for you in return.
If I'm attracted to a guy, then I really can't befriend him.
I'll be "friendly," but a real friendship requires some level of honesty and ease.
Also, they never win because if everything is then you will never learn what will make your partner happier and therefore never be able to work on it. Have you ever had a friend who you can go weeks, months, or even years without seeing – but when you do finally get together again it’s like nothing has changed?
