Dating a platonic friend
Jessica and I met up as friends, without any overt attempts at wooing, courting, or sleeping with one another. She came to understand my background story and my relationship goals and preferences ( talk about these things all the time), and I learned about hers.
Using these insights, we both began introducing each other to awesome people within our respective friend groups, and have been doing so for years.
This friendship-first approach has fundamentally changed my understanding of dating and relationships.It changed when he moved to my city and called me up to talk about a event we were both going to.At the event we sought each other out and ended up talking for close to 3-4 hours.After the movie, we grabbed dinner and just talked all night. We met freshman year of college and became pretty good friends towards the end of that year and throughout the summer before sophomore year.Even after we went our separate ways, we texted all night. He’s naturally flirty and just a good human and in the back of my head I was thinking, “Wow, he’d make a great boyfriend.”During sophomore year our friends were making bets on whether we would get together soon because we were getting increasingly flirty around each other. One thing led to another and thus began our relationship.
we started talking nonstop and have now been together since December 2016. My best love story ever My sophomore year in hs we ended up having both chemistry and history together. Sometimes I scare myself wondering what if we’d never had that drunk night...
