Dating becoming friends first
Instead of taking things too fast, how about we take things slow for once and see what could happen.I took my own advice and went at it during my second semester of senior year. I was able to get to know him as a person, without the awkward pressure of feeling like we needed to date.It seems many people (myself included) prefer to be friends first and then gradually get to know a girl overtime, rather than going on dates and then becoming exclusive after a few dates. EDIT: wow, I didn't think I would get so many comments! I will be pouring myself a coffee when I get home from work, and reading all your lovely stories. My girlfriend and I were friends for ten years or so before becoming a couple. I was looking to travel America with just a small bag and motorbike when she told me her friend had unfortunately had to bail on her putting her own Asia/Australia plans in jeopardy.
This is all because I was pressed to believe that just simply being in a relationship made everything better.
Having a relationship start as just a friendship will grow into something strong as it did for my boyfriend and I. Those are the relationships I want all of us young women to be able to experience.
I have never felt happier and more comfortable around someone like I do with him. Next time you want to enter into a relationship, be his friend first. If you are able to burp or fart in front of him, you know he’s the one, and also, your best friend.
I wanted to see him more, but I did not want to get attached before we would en dup being two hours away from each other.
College started, and our talking stopped until one night I decided to start things back up with him. We have had our struggles here and there because of the distance, but not once have we decided that we are not meant for each other.
