cuddleship

noun; blending and clipping
A relationship that is centered around physically embracing, snuggling, and hugging. Differs from a regular relationship in its lack of sexual activity and instead replaces this with a great emphasis on platonic reciprocity
 
The term 'cuddleship' was formed via the blending and clipping of 'cuddle' and 'relationship'. Here the root cuddle describes the type of relationship that is characteristic of a cuddleship. By retaining the semantic properties of both roots, the definition is very transparent. A cuddleship is typically associated with younger adolescents who are unfamiliar with the general guidelines of dating and whose relationships are typified by cuddling and snuggling.
Etymology : From the blending and clipping of 'cuddle' and (relation)'ship'
Source : My ex-girlfriend at the University of Texas at Austin (November 2008). Quote: "Steven and Julia are most definitely in a cuddleship, all they ever do is sit around at Steven's house watching movies and snuggling."
