It means that there is no intimate relationship between the two ladies has been shown in the movie. They are only close as friends and partners in a common goal.
The movie is also rated TV-14 because of its violent content. That means there is less romance and intimacy and more fight sequences, use of foul language, and drastic violence between the two enemy groups- humans and vampires.
