But the falling in love doesn't disqualify the friendship, does it? 
Can't, given the example you chose.  We were thinking about the 
Mairelon books this morning, and how nicely removed from physical 
descriptions they are.  It would have been so easy to have Kim do the 
Cinderella transformation thing, and then have the men falling all 
over her, but that's not how it goes.  Refreshing.
