Wanted: Fictional Characters in Platonic Relationships

Lately, I’ve been noticing that a common theme in many books (and films) is to have the main characters start as best friends, insisting that everything is entirely innocent and platonic only to have the couple get together at the end.  This is a very sweet story line.  It warms the heart and makes you smile.  But I can’t help but wish for more stories where the relationship stayed platonic.  Would that be so bad?! There are times when seeing two main characters be able to share anything and everything and not be romantically involved at any point can sometimes come be more powerful than a love story.

It’s left me with a hankering for stories like this but I seem to be having trouble finding any.  I was hoping that some of you out there in blogging land could recommend some for me.
