How long were your friends before dating
That French bulldog of yours was not cheap and she's currently the love of your life, so you wouldn’t trust her with just anyone.
If you let your friend hang with the pup while you’re on vacay, it's a good sign that you already have confidence in them.
"When you’re dating someone, how you get along with their family is so important because they’re always going to be there," says relationship expert Wendy Walsh Ph. The same is true for your family—if they never stop asking about what your buddy is up to, it’s fair to say they already approve.
And as much as you hate to admit it, your family can sometimes see what’s best for you even before you can.
Plus, when a person is not ready to make someone else’s needs a priority, it's a sign that they’re not quite relationship material, says Orbuch.
But if you already know that you can depend on them, that’s a solid base for a long-term relationship permanent dog sitter (just saying). Even though he doesn't actually mind that you look like a giant pillow in your sweats, if he notices when you rock a pair of jeans, and mentions it, he could be boyfriend material.
Whether you've always had a crush on them or you’re just starting to realize they’re a catch, feeling excitement and desire is a big part of what being in love is all about, says Greer.
So, why is she (or both of you) only giving subtle hints?
You vent about your love lives to each other—and almost always agree."Trust is the most important part of a relationship," says Walsh.So while your good-looking friend who bails on plans more than half the time and "forgot" to help you move probably wouldn’t be the right match for you, someone who you truly trust may be a great fit for something more.It seems many people (myself included) prefer to be friends first and then gradually get to know a girl overtime, rather than going on dates and then becoming exclusive after a few dates. EDIT: wow, I didn't think I would get so many comments! I will be pouring myself a coffee when I get home from work, and reading all your lovely stories. My girlfriend and I were friends for ten years or so before becoming a couple. I was looking to travel America with just a small bag and motorbike when she told me her friend had unfortunately had to bail on her putting her own Asia/Australia plans in jeopardy.
If you were initially friends with a girl and then had transition into a bf/gf relationship, how did you go from friends to relationship? She was saving for years to travel and wanted to start out in India, a place that's quite intense as a lone woman to go to.I made up some story about helping her find flights I think.
