I know that some of us cringe at the thought of being stuck in the “friend zone” with people we are romantically interested in. There is nothing worse then wanting more when the other person doesn’t seem interested in that. Then I wonder why we actually don’t aim to be great friends before a romance even gets started?
I think some of the best relationships in history, the long-lasting ones, are couples who were extremely close friends. The friendship that holds trust and loyalty can only improve a romantic relationship that comes later.
Guys, what is it about being friends with a woman that bothers you? Isn’t it possible that a strong friendship with a woman could enhance a romantic connection with her?
Ladies, do you find it difficult to begin a relationship with men who are your friends?
When you think about the people that you have dated, how do they rate on the friendship scale? Do you actually consider them people you would want to hang out with and enjoy without the potential for romance/sex?
Do you think people would want to be your friend without the possibility of love and sex? We all have the superficial things that we are attracted to but we know that is not enough to sustain a real relationship. Why don’t we put more effort and energy in being friends first?
