It was a great time of getting to know each other in a low-pressure environment, surrounded by our closest friends.
Because relationships are all so different, there are no hard and fast rules, but when asked I always suggest a period of friendship of at least three months before you decide to take the next steps into a dating relationship.
I saw a funny picture the other day that said: “A good friend is like a good bra: Hard to find, supportive, comfortable, always lifts you up, makes you look better, and is close to your heart.” Okay, so maybe there are better analogies out there, but it’s true that great friendships are hard to come by!
The ingredients in a friendship are the exact components that you will bring into a romantic relationship, so it’s great to have an idea of what you’ll be building upon before your heart gets romantically involved.
However…If you’re in the category of male/female friendship in which something more could definitely be on the horizon, know that taking that leap of faith could be the best decision you’ll ever make.
It might feel scary, and you might fear that it’ll ruin the connection you already have, but the best – and easiest – relationships truly grow from friendships.
