I think it's fallacious to argue that the only way two opposite-sex characters can be confirmed to be in a Platonic relationship is if they're currently seeing other people. That's not the way it works. A Platonic relationship isn't just the lack of romantic opportunity. There are a lot of different ways that people can bond, even if they're of opposite sexes. It's simplistic to assume the only possibilities are "in a romance" and "not free to be in a romance." After all, it's not like every man is attracted to every woman, or vice-versa. Sometimes -- probably often -- there's just no romantic chemistry at all between two people, but they can trust and respect each other as friends or rely on each other as professional partners.
This. Very good point.
