Difference Between Lovers and Friends

Lovers vs Friends

Some people are having trouble how to define their relationship with a certain person in their life. They often differentiate the two relationships by measuring their territorial rights that they have over the person, and this includes their sexual relationship with one another. We can differentiate the two with numerous aspects other than the physical.

One aspect is about how they speak about what they have or the connection they are sharing. In lovers, it is common that lovers talk about their affection for one another. If you are only friends, however, you don’t really talk about your friendship. You just tend to go with the flow. Another is when it comes to jealousy. When lovers get jealous, it is because they demand the commitment of their partner. For friends, they get jealous because they demand the attention of their friend. Most of the time jealousy in lovers leads to arguments or fighting. But in a friendship, it usually leads to just ignoring what just happened and eventually going on with their day.

The number of people involved can also be different. You can have a lot of friends, but you can’t have more than one lover. Being lovers means both of you share time privately while when you are just friends, the more the merrier. You can spend your bonding time even with other groups of friends without having to think if your friend will break up with you.
You treat your lover in a special way. You make him or her feel that he or she is the only one for you. You can’t make other people feel this way if you already have a lover. But if you are just friends, you can show affection to other people openly.

Being in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship can be a little more complicated than being just friends. If you have a lover, you tend to adjust with your partner so that your partner will not get turned off and dump you. But in a friendship, you can do almost everything with them without the fear of scaring them away. You can act freely with each other. Being lovers is also a bit more sensitive. For example, let us say you’ve forgotten your partner’s birthday. It would be a big deal for them. They will get mad and be disappointed especially if you have forgotten your anniversary. Usually that will take them a long time to forget even if you buy them lots of gifts to make it up to them. If you forgot your friend’s birthday, they also tend to be mad, but that could easily be fixed simply by giving them a gift. It doesn’t even matter if it’s just a free meal or a new shirt.
