Also known as, Platonic relationship.

In simpler terms a love or special kind of attraction that is beyond physical or carnal desire. Unlike unrequited love or being 'friend zoned', in a Platonic relationship both are usually aware and acknowledge the desires they have for one another but this does not manifest in typical romancing or courtship usually out of fear of rejection, personal inadequacy or even principles, thus remain ambiguous. Platonic love may bloom into a full fledged relationship or fade to obscurity.

#3 Peter Pan and Wendy Darling

#4 Hamlet and Horatio in Shakespeare's Hamlet

#5 Travis Bickle in the movie, Taxi Driver

#6 Leon in Leon: The Professional although some might see this as pedophilic because of the characters' age gap, the relationship between gun-for-hire Leon and the 12-year old Mathilda is a good example of Platonic love.

#7 Psycho 2. Norman Bates and Mary Loomis, although Mary's feelings for Norman might be out of pity as Norman Bates falls back to his insanity.
