Not every relationship falls into neat categories as defined by words like “platonic” and “romantic”. Boundaries such as these are often crossed; for instance, a mentor and apprentice at work may have a relationship that's partly paternal, partly professional and partly just friendly. One of the insights therapists gain through experience is that no two situations are exactly alike, and it makes no sense trying to apply what was valid in one to another. The complexities of individual personalities and how they relate to each other makes this impossible. It's never a good idea to say that this person is of such a type, their partner fits that kind of profile, and therefore they will automatically be happy if they behave in some particular way. The following articles don't lend themselves to easy classification, but instead address a wide variety of issues that are faced by many people. While all of them won't be applicable to every person's situation, many people will find some relevance in one or more of them.
