When one person says they're looking for a relationship and the other is saying they are interested in a friendship to see where it goes, do they both mean the same thing necessarily?

That's a pretty general question.

To me, the first person seems like they're definitely interested in seeking out more than just a friendship, while the second person isn't seeking it specifically but seems open to it.

Their goals might be compatible, but I would say conditionally not the same.

I don't think so. One is certain about what they're looking for, the other, more vague. If you're looking for friendship on the chance that it might turn into something more, don't be surprised when it doesn't.

It means one is more invested and attracted than the other one.

No. One is looking for a relationship. The other says they are looking for a friendship to see where it goes but really means they are either just looking for a booty call or they are looking for a relationship, just not with the person they are talking to, and will drop the person they are talking to when someone they are truly interested in comes along.

Not to be too jaded about it.
