Just friends?

A man and a woman have openly declared they are strongly attracted to one another, and if circumstances were different they would have a relationship and possibly marry.Because this is not possible, they have decided the next best option is friendship, and are trying hard to keep all conversation on a purely friendship level.Do you think it is possible to really " just be friends" ?Also, would you say it is " normal"  for friends(such as these 2) to end an sms exchange with a " Night, sleep well"  or " pleasant dreams"  or " sleep tight" ?Is that friendship or is it too intimate?This " situation"  has lasted 2 years.

Lets see what others have to say here. I don;t think there are broad general rules here. Some do indeed form lasting and valued friendships, some feel they can't

Whats the point then of this " relationship" ?

You can chose many other friends where there would not be this problem, surely?

This is obviously eating away at you. So why don' t you make an end to it?

Tell him either we go for it or we call it quits?

Also if either of you are married or in a relationship or whatever the reason for NOT being able to act on your feelings you should probably not even be in this situation.
