It's not weird. You can still be really good friends and care about the person.
I was with my first girlfriend for a year and a half. We broke up two years ago now, but we still lived together for quite awhile after the break up, we still talk every single day even though she's not even in the country right now. If anything happened to her, I'd be at a complete loss. Pretty sure the same goes for her. We've both made it clear, I think, that any future relationship we have is going to have to deal with the fact that we're still best friends. If I were to get with someone and she wasn't cool with that, well, that relationship isn't working out.
It's not weird. It's just life. Sometimes a person can just be that important to you.
