Dating close guy friend
Be prepared for it not to go your way and that being just friends with this person is probably a whole lot better than not knowing them anymore.
Kelly: The person I want to hang out with most is right next to me when I wake up.
Ashley: We hooked up for a semester in college, then spent about two years being mostly just friends again while he did an internship in NY (I was still based in Indiana) then moved to Seattle.
After a year in Seattle he came back to Indiana to visit, and we decided to try and date for real. Ashley: We talked so much about every decision and all of our feelings so that even when it felt weird, it quickly went back to not feeling weird.
Kelly: I believe we handled the evolution of our relationship very consciously.
Nothing felt weird to me, but the transitions didn’t just happen on their own.
