This classification (or relationship status) is not to be confused with other groups that suggest friendship, i.e. "Fuck Buddies".
"You're like a brother to me."
"I know I can always count on you to listen."
"Can we still be friends?"
"You're like the gay friend every girl wants"
"Let's get ice cream, watch Sex in the City, and do each other's hair."
"I have no sexual interest in you, what-so-ever."
