What do you think? Would you rather be friends with someone first for like a year or so, getting to know each other and being completely comfortable before you start dating (with not having intentions to date to begin with).
Orrrrr... Would you rather meet someone and immediately date them and get to know them along the way?
I'm starting a relationship out of a friendship (although I've liked the guy for about a year now...he was in a relationship when we first met...) and I just want to know what you guys think?
Most Helpful Girl
I've been dating a guy for 7 months. Before we got into a relationship, we were close friends for 2 years. The whole 2 years, both of us were crazy about each other, but too scared to say anything because we didn't wanna make things weird between us. I'd have to sit and listen to his girl problems, which was terribly painful and he'd have to do the same with my guy problems. He's in the Marines and came home for pre-deployment leave earlier this year. I hadn't seen him in over a year and he took me to lunch. As soon as we saw each other we knew that we were supposed to be together.
So now, I'm dating my best friend which is amazing. He's been there for me every time I've been screwed over so he knows exactly what I don't need in a guy and I'm the kind of girl he needs. He treats me perfectly. I believe that your significant other shouldn't just be your bf/gf...they should be your best friend.2
