It seems like with how fast paced the world is today, almost all relationships start off with physicall attraction and move on to friendship. And it seems like being friends with somebody first and having it become a relationship is falling to the side; which is sad because those tend to be the relationships that are the most successful and last the longest. I think this has a lot to do with the fact that everything in the first world today is so fast paced that if you try and take that direction, it's never going to work because we expect everything to be upfront and immediate.
Do you think that being friends first is falling to the wayside?

I'm not too sure because I know people who started out as friends and then it developed into more. However for me all my ex's were guys I started dating from the start. Like we'd meet and instantly start the dating process. The reason behind this is that I can tell within minutes of meeting someone whether there is attraction or a spark. So naturally if I feel wow this guy is really doing it for me then I'll want to pursue him and won't be able to just settle with friendships as I'm too scared of him thinking I'm only interested in friendship and losing interest.1
