This rule is almost never stated or enforced among queer communities.
If you're gay, you will almost inevitably date a friend's ex at some point.
The two of you share common interests but also know how to discuss and get past your differences.
You know what pushes each others’ buttons as well as what makes one another smile.
Queers don't tend to expect our dates to come into our lives completely free of prior complication.It is very hard to explain friendship as it happens between two people who have the same wavelength of mind and are inseparable.Such friends come once in a while and become an asset in your life.Because if you pick it up, it dies and it ceases to be what you love. It is the morning and the evening star.” -Sinclair Lewis #27 “There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.” -F.Scott Fitzgerald #28 “When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – #29 “Love is the silent saying and saying of a single name.” -Mignon Mc Laughlin #30 “If I know what love is, it is because of you.” -Herman Hesse [Read: How your first love affects your future relationships] #31 “I swear I couldn’t love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.” -Leo Christopher #32 “Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart.” -Henry Ward Beecher #33 “I saw that you were perfect, and so I loved you.Just like the greatest friendships, your relationship is full of trust, respect, honest communication, loyalty, adventure and unconditional love. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them." -N'Tima Preusser"We’re all a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love."“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever ...You can tell each other even those TMI details that would otherwise be embarrassing. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. A friend is a real reflection of your character and personality.Friends can also be a great source of inspiration and can take you to great levels.Nothing is better than having a husband who is both your lover and your best friend.Friedrich Nietzsche once famously said, "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages." And this couldn't be more true; after all, the strongest relationships seem to be those that are built on friendship (hence why so many friendship quotes focus on love).It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.” -Honoré de Balzac [Read: How to know if you are truly in love] #9 “Love, whether newly born or aroused from a deathlike slumber, must always create sunshine, filling the heart so full of radiance, this it overflows upon the outward world.” -Nathaniel Hawthorne #10 “You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.” -Thich Nhat Hanh [Read: How to handle controlling behavior in a relationship] #11 “Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.” -H. #12 “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” -Dr.Seuss [Read: 14 signs you’re getting too comfortable with each other] #13 “Keep love in your heart. But any of it is better than never having been in love.” -Maya Angelou #16 “Love recognizes no barriers.A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.” -Oscar Wilde #14 “Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.” -Carolyn Gold Heilbrun #15 “First best is falling in love. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” -Maya Angelou #17 “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” -Lao Tzu [Read: How to ask a girl out when you’re a shy guy] #18 “Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair.” -William Blake #19 “Romance like a ghost escapes touching; it is always where you are not, not where you are.
