With the guy I dated from the bar, we used to see each other once a week for the first month before we agreed that we were exclusively a thing and started to up the ante. O however, we see each other every day – and I still can’t get enough (I know, vomit. By the time you start shagging/dating, you’re so comfortable with each other that there’s very still you can do or say to repulse the other.
There’s very little my BF could say to shock me because we went through his mountain of skeletons with a fine tooth comb when we were ~just friends~.
If you break up with someone in your office, you’ll never be able to use the same water machine again.
There are many reasons why a relationship doesn’t last.
Is it really OK to want to change anyone to mould them into a better partner? When you date guys you’re already mates with, however, you start from an advantage point. You know if their religious/political/moral views are the same as yours – and you know how to deal with them if they’re not.
You know what sort of place you’d both enjoy going for dinner.
But actually, dating your friends is awesome and in my opinion, far more preferable to seeing strangers. I’ve almost exclusively dated guys that I’ve known and been friends with for a while and up until relatively recently, didn’t really understand how dating randomers even worked (how dating apps result in relationships, even less so).
So why is dating friends so much better than dating the people you meet out and about?
