I believe that when you are a close friend to someone that you have an emotional connection. They will know you better than anyone else. It feels great when you love someone and can do and say anything around them. I also believe that in order to have a lasting romantic relationship you need to have an emotional connection. To me there is more to it than just the physical attraction. You need to feel more for the person. Then you enjoy every moment with them. I strongly believe in an emotional connection.
