If falling in love doesn't disqualify the friendship, what about Ursula
LeGuin's "The Beginning Place?" The friendship between Hugh and Irena
is shown as something real and independent of "love" - they don't stop
being friends when he falls for Allia. And although Hugh gets more
physically fit in the course of the book (well, you'd have to if you
change careers from checker at a supermarket to slayer of monsters in a
mountanous country) he is always described as heavy, bulky, to the point
of being somewhat awkward with it.
