So, Last night I met up with my friends with benefits of a year but have known my whole life at the bar he tends. A regular there sat next to me and my friends with benefits introduced us. The guy asked him if I was his friend or more than a friend and he replied more than a friend. The last few weeks, we have hung out and got closer. In the beginning we both decided we didn’t want anything serious because we both just ended very long term relationships. He said back then he doesn’t want to hurt me and make it to where we no longer friends.
