Holden and Jane's relationship was completely platonic. It wasn't that they didn't have chemistry, just that they never acted on the chemistry between them. Maybe Holden was simply afraid of losing the friendship. None-the-less, he never acted on his emotions, and when he finally did..... it was too late.
