    He is my best friend and my lover, I don’t think it should be one or the other.

    Best friend, but really he’s both. If the passion dies, you can work at it (or buy a vibrator); if you don’t like one another, you’re kind of screwed!

    It makes me sad when people think like your friend does about relationships. Inevitably, passion fades over time and life (illness, financial strain, etc) gets in the way of passion and sex. Without the foundational “best friend” relationship, I think a couple is SOL.

    My SO is my best friend, but our relationship simply wouldn’t be the same without the physical attraction we have with one another. Not just the sexual stuff, but the holding hands and cuddly affectionate stuff.  I believe that will last until we’re old and gray and that’s what makes my relationship with my SO so much better than just being roomates with my best friend.
