Friendship involves three foundational elements, commitment to fulfill the responsibility of a friend, care and concern for the welfare of your friend, and affection.
The word "friend" means someone you like who also likes you.
It also involves the joy of romantic desire/attraction and intimacy and sexual desire/attraction and intimacy.
The Song of Songs, the dialogue between King Solomon and his bride, is a celebration of the romantic and physical love between a husband and wife.
