Friends now dating
And you saw a movie on Tuesday and afterward they came back to your place. In other words, there’s no “just” about it —when you're turning your friendship into a relationship, you’re in completely new territory with this person.
On one hand, congratulations, because that is really fun and exciting and opens up a whole new frontier that you previously may not have thought existed (or denied the possibility thereof for the sake of maintaining a friendship).
But while friends dating might sound like the perfect answer, we all know it can be fraught with problems. Consider the consequences Are you prepared to lose your friendship over this relationship? Consider your motives – are your feelings merely physical or are they more deep-rooted?
The bonus of friends dating is that you are already comfortable with each other so will bypass the customary awkward stage that most couples endure. It’s not worth risking a friendship over something that won’t last.
But if they keep referring to you as like a sibling to them or talking about other people they are attracted to, you should hold back. Think about the future Both of you should have the same expectations.
If one of you thinks the relationship will be more serious than the other, problems will arise. It’s for a couple to gauge whether they have a connection and find out whether they share interests and ideals.
If they are dropping hints verbally or physically then dating your friend will be a natural progression.
And perhaps you two are really close, and really big fans of each other.
And maybe — just maybe — you made out the other night.
They are trying to impress you in a different way now, and will perhaps be holding you up in a new, more idealized light. We treat our lovers different than the way we treat our friends.
This obviously includes sex stuff, but you may also find out more about their family, or their desires, or the way they see the world.
