Adult friend (dictionary)
|BoyWiki Dictionary: Adult friend|
|n (ə-dŭlt′, ăd′ŭlt) (frĕnd)|
This term is subject to the same ambiguity that lies around the term young friend, in that the term is used to describe a variety of different relationships, ranging from passing familiarity to strong companionship. Some that consider themselves adult friends feel a desire to actively benefit the boy, while others feel no more obligation to a young friend than to any other friend.
Many boylovers continue to consider themselves a person's adult friend long after he is no longer a boy. Conversely, a boylover is still called an adult friend even if he has not attained the age of majority where he lives.
The term "adult friend" evolved as a play on the terms boyfriend and girlfriend and is usually abbreviated as AF in writing.
