If you look around you will see the vast majority of people who are in a relationship weren’t friends before they got involved with one another and formed it into a relationship, you will also notice if a relationship breaks most people decide to become friends with their ex’s instead of parting ways.
The number 1 reason for this is to ease the pain and suffering of losing their love and comfort they were accustomed to while they were in a relationship with their (now Ex). They don’t take their time to heal their heart before getting involved in a new relationship.
Here are my top reasons why it’s a good idea to be friends before getting into a relationship.
When you’ve been friends before you decided to date, you’ve had the opportunity to know each other in a completely different way than you would have if you had met them online or at a party and had a first date the next time you met, this would give you a whole different perspective on that person.
Another advantage that is worth mentioning is that you may already feel comfortable being around that person. There is no awkwardness where you are constantly trying to come up with something to talk about. Chances are that you’re comfortable communicating, and there is no reluctance in doing or saying anything that you want. I mean, after all, we do turn to our friends when we need to talk.
#TAKE THINGS SLOWLY
This way you are guaranteed to take things slowly while focusing on your friendship. You already know you have things in common with that person, so you don’t have to worry or convince them about that part. In return, this helps you to stress less about situations and reduce feeling overwhelmed.
This one is a crucial deciding factor on whether you two are truly a good match for one another. It’s your opportunity to see whether you like enjoying “similar lifestyle activities” what I mean is that you get to experience the other person’s lifestyle before deciding on whether or not they are a good fit.
So for example, if you the type of person who likes chilling at home eating junk food while watching Netflix meanwhile they are into a healthy lifestyle they like to work out in the gym, eat clean diet and love the outdoor activities etc, you can see that they are definitely not someone who likes to sit at home porking on junk food while watching TV. Regardless of how attractive you may be to them, if you guys aren’t into the same things, this friendship should never be formed into a relationship and if it does, things will come crashing a lot quicker than you will expect.
We all live in a shallow world that values appearances and shun other important factors, but there is a way to make to get around this by allowing people to get to know you and take the time to get to know them yourself.
It may not always come across as such, but people are more than just the sum of their physical parts and that does count for something in the world of dating.
Nevertheless, being friends before forming a relationship along with your expectations and sexual desires that come along with dating is probably not such a bad idea after all whether you are good looking or not, it doesn’t matter.
