Close relationships

Inspired by the pestering in the monster thread, What is a close relationship to you?  Is there any such thing as being too close?  Are you close to your spouse/so?  Your children?  Your parents?  Your friends?  Is there an ideal image of close..  If so what does that look like? 

I know, Lots of questions...  Play or pass..

Semantics, And when I hear french doors I think of a stylish partition for rooms not appliances, Lol.

A side by side refrigerator and frrench door refrigerator are two completly different thngs.

A side by sdie is a refrigerator on one side and a freezer on the other with a door for each.  A french door is a refrigerator with two doors,

I've seen too many of pics of you and your sister on fb to count black/white, You two even look alike and I think I made a comment about that there once too. Lol. Maybe you hate eachother's guts but you'd never tell.

How is that semantics; I didn't use a different word to describe the same thing; I described two completely different styles of refrigerator.

That wasn't an apology, that was sympathy.  You know as you often do when you say your sorry for xyz in many threads.

Sympathy for what? For your thinking I dont have a close relationship because of the "remodel"?

    Chiming back in to add that my daughter, a first year college student, is FB friends with several of her high school, middle school, and elementary teachers. They all have common interests (music, astronomy, biology, literature, and history). Some of them have attended her concerts or comment on her posts that relate to their areas of common interest. I think this is pretty normal, at least for teachers and students who came to know one another well.

    Which then makes it even more curious as to why she didn't simply answer yes, we are close.  Your comments don't seem to ring true given that molly needed my definition of close in order to answer the question, instead of simply answering yes.  Curious, don't you think?
