What about situations where one develops a totally unreasonable crush on another person? Or what about those situations where intimacy *would have* evolved, except that one or both are sexually unavailable for whatever reason, such as, one or both are already married to others? These can be deep, meaningful relationships that may even last for many years, but never have the sexual context. spike
