When you date someone, you have the markers along the way, right: You kiss, you have The Talk, you say the Three Little Words, you sit on a swing set and break up. You can plot the points on a graph.

"But with friendship, there's nothing like that. Being in a relationship, that's something you choose. Being friends, that's just something you are.
