So I asked my Guy Decoder for a little advice on how to handle a little dating situation. After spending time with a new guy, I realize we are definitely not romantically compatible, but I really would love to have him in my life – as a friend.
I know most men DESPISE the friend zone because it basically eliminates any possibility of bedroom action. The thing is, we really have the best time talking, laughing, and hanging out. We certainly could continue to spend time together, but I want to let him know that romance is not in our future.
I don’t think this guy is hopelessly in love with me or anything, so I still figure I could pull this off. I just wondered if it’s all or none, use me romantically or lose me as a friend. What do you guys think? Would it help if I fixed him up with a great girl?
Aren’t there situations where men are able to remain friends with a woman after being rejected romantically?
Ladies, have you ever been in this situation? How did you handle it?
Is it really mission impossible to parlay a great friendship with someone you once dated, but dumped?
When you find out you are better off friends, how do the dynamics change? In a way, couldn’t you become closer without the pressure of a romantic relationship?
