Friendship is actually a form of love (here I'm not talking exclusively about erotic love).
It's not a lesser form of love than erotic love, only a different form of love.

In fact, the ancient Greeks had a word, "phileos", more or less equating to fraternal/brotherly love (friendship).

Friendship seems to have no observable biological necessity(unlike parental love, necessary for humans to grow, and erotic love, necessary for humans to reproduce),

and not much of a marketable appeal (as opposed to the millions/billions of dollars worth of things sold to people trying to better their marriages or parenting skills),

yet without such a form of love as friendship our societies would be unbearably dull and alienated from one another.

One can love their friends as well as their "significant other", just not in the same way (the difference here is quality, not necessarily quantity).
