slant rhyme /debate

You know how slant rhymes are the words that sort of, but don't really rhyme? There's a better definition out there somewhere, but I'm too lazy to check it out. You get the drift. This is a slant debate.

So here it is; it's one that Susan and I have been having as long as we've known each other (over 10 years):

According to Platonic rules of debate, though, one cannot argue a subject until it has been defined. This whole debate is one of definition.

Relationships. What makes a "romantic (for lack of a better term) relationship" different from a friendship? People (my mother) say you should be friends first, but then also say that a RR is "more than sex." So isn't a significant other a friend with benefits? Is it just intent that makes an SO different than a FwB?



  • First difference that comes to mind is exclusivity (sexually/romantically) with a SO versus a FwB. More to follow.
