What does ancestry.com mean by 'friend' ?

Classification: Query
I want to add a family to my family tree that I'm not blood related to, but have been close family friends for two generations, many members of which I've spent as much time around as my actual siblings. But there didn't seem to be an option to add someone and just have them floating in space next your tree, so I added one of them close to my age as a 'friend', then worked outward from there. I was just a bit confused that initially to do this you have to go "add relative" then "spouse", then change it it "friend" when filling out their info. Are all the options in that drop-down box intended to be romantic relationships? It also added a solid line between me and the person as if we are together. Can someone please explain this to me?
