Sarah Dessen
“He was not my boyfriend. On the other hand, he wasn't just a friend either. Instead, our relationship was elastic, stretching between those two extremes depending on who else was around, how much either of us had to drink, and other varying factors. This was exactly what I wanted, as commitments had never really been my thing. And it wasn't like it was hard, either. The only trick was never giving more than you were willing to lose.”
Sarah Dessen, Lock and Key

Something about you caught me by surprise
Though I always knew you’d be my demise.

“I didn’t want you to love me
Didn’t want you thinking of me
 
So I kept my distance
Tried to ignore your existence
I was blinded by my pride
With you, the Jekyll to my Hyde
 
But that’s where you found me
Baby, that’s where you unwound me
 
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to look at you, that’s a dance with death
 
I’d risk it all,
For you I would
You’d make me fall,
And fall I would
 
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to be by you, that’s a dance with death.

“I thought once was enough
You turned to me and called my bluff,
Maybe I should have walked away
but I couldn’t resist, I needed replay after replay
 
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to give you up, that’s a dance with death
 
We were over from the start
I never said I’d give my heart
So now it’s time for this to end
After all, a friend is just a friend
 
Loving you would be as easy as taking a breath
But to give you up, that’s a dance with death
 
So now it’s time for this to end
After all, a friend is just a friend.

R.S. Grey, The Duet

Sergei Lukyanenko
“I believe it, she's a very good person, kind. There's weariness there, but no bitterness or spite. When you're with a girl like that you feel like a different person. You try to be better, and that's a strain. Men prefer to be friends with her kind, flirt a bit, share confidences. They don't often fall in love with girls like that, but everybody loves them.”
Sergei Lukyanenko, Night Watch

Jodi Lynn Anderson
“I think we could be friends," he said, falling into step with her. "It's perfect because I wouldn't fall in love with you, like I do with the mermaids. Girls always seem so exotic. But it would be okay with you, because you're more like...you know. Not like a girl." He shrugged.”

Oliver Markus
“Men pretend to be “just a friend” at first, even though they want to sleep with you from day one. Otherwise they wouldn't be spending any time, money or attention on you, because these are limited resources and they need these resources to attract a mate. They can't afford to squander them. So they apply these resources to the female that looks to be their best bet to get laid. But they also know that they can't tell the woman on day one that they want to sleep with her, because she'd think it's creepy. So they play along with the illusion that it's “just a friendship” that “suddenly” developed into more, when the woman finally feels inclined to sleep with the guy “because they have a deep connection.” But that was really his goal from day one.”
