  • Eh, I would figure companionship and friendship would go hand in hand, but not always. Believe me, I'm a child of divorce and my father has been married three times, so I'm guessing it doesn't always work out that way.

  • I always thought that a companion is typically a life partner type person, without the sex...or maybe some cuddling but I picture more holding hands than steamy lovers...

    If your "friend" is saying this, it may be that he wants to let you know that he just wants to be friends with you with maybe a little lovin' on the side, but he's not into being a husband type person.

    I think you'd have to supply a little more information :)

  • he probably just wants a friend, someone maybe to hang-out or go out with or just to talk.

  • I think he wants sex....just being completely honest. Companion implies someone who lives with or stays the night with you....
