I had a random person IM me on AIM. They asked me the following question, and I would really actually like to see my f'list answers to it:

What makes a relationship a relationship, besides sex? How is it different from a friendship?

I was asleep when the IM came, so I never responded, but once I'm finished with my current streak of "stuff to get done ASAP for work" I'll probably piece my own answer together.

You'd feel guilty if you slept with somebody else.

It's why polyamorous relationships aren't really relationships.

Emotional Investment, and Intimacy.

See, I disagree with this. I have just as much emotional investment and intimacy with extremely close friends of mine. Granted, the intimacy may be of a different type, but the strength of the intimacy is just as deep and strong.

I don't think there is a difference, except the magnitude of the present of the person in your life. It's the same sort of thing, just a matter of intensity.
