I agree with you, but I also think it depends on the card spread you use to determine whether it's more "romantic" or "friendship" based. For me, one of the meanings of the card is being intimately connected to someone, fostering a close friendship and romantic connection. It also signifies feeling naturally at ease with the person—where conversations flow effortlessly. Even if you don't share many common interests, you still feel comfortable in their company, which speaks volumes about the ease and naturalness of being with that person.
Trust me, as someone as awkward as I am, even if I have a lot in common with someone, it's hard for me to engage in conversation. So, being with someone with whom I share little in common and yet feel comfortable talking at length says a lot.
Hope that helps❣ 🙂
