Meet best friends who say they’re “platonic partners” — who live together after divorce and claim “you don’t need a man to be happy.”
Marissa Baker, 30, and her best friend Patty Kulak, 27, say they are “platonic soul mates” and will be in each other’s lives forever.
Arrest warrant issued for Donald Trump, but there’s a big problem: report
They claim that they are often mistaken for a couple, and people keep asking if they’re in a relationship because they get along so well.
The couple met at Marissa’s birthday party on January 1, 2021, and when Patty split in January 2021, she was supported by Marissa – who also split from her husband in May 2021.
In May 2021, the singletons decided to move in together in Naples, Florida, USA as they were both going through a divorce and are now dating, exercising and doing chores together.
Baker claims they’re “like wives,” but insists it works because they’re “not attracted to each other.”
Baker goes as far as saying, “If I could choose a husband, I would, I want Patty in male form.”
Baker, a local government regional manager, said: “It’s wild. Our whole relationship has been very simple – we just say we’re here and that’s what we need and the other person says boom, got it.
“That’s why we jokingly call each other platonic life partners because whatever the universe is doing, we just help each other figure it out and it’s so much fun.
“We learned very quickly how similar we are, we both love positivity and personal development, and we don’t want to go to the bar and have a drink.
“We want to sit on our balcony, drink tea and watch the sunset and we want to be in bed by 8:30pm at the latest because we get up at 4am and go to training the next day.
“We’ve formed such a good connection over something that can be seen as so ugly.”
Kulak and her husband decided to divorce in December 2020.
The next day — at her birthday party — Baker noticed that her friend seemed depressed, and that’s when she opened up about the breakup.
Kulak said she longed for a support system to get through the difficult time, and Marissa vowed to be that person.
Kulak, a local government planner, said: “She welcomed me with open arms.
“We’ve created our own network now, it’s no longer Marissa in Naples and Patty in Naples, it’s Marissa and Patty coming — we’re together as one.”
A few months later, in May 2021, Marissa experienced her second divorce.
She decided to move in with Patty in Naples, FL in May 2021 — and the couple hasn’t looked back.
“This girl, who only really knew my husband, was the most supportive person I could have ever asked for in a friend,” Kulak said.
