Dating a platonic friend Cam with random horny people
One thing led to another and here were are 2 years later, newlyweds.
There was a TV show with a cute sarcastic guy who the main girl could totally be herself with but she kept pursuing someone else. I was always attracted to him, but figured he could never feel the same way about me.
Now we’ve been married for seven years and looking back, I can’t thank our friends enough for canceling that day :)We really got to be friends by talking about comics at a coffeeshop. We spent lots of time together, we knew everything about each other. He said he'd rather keep me as a friend than lose me, but he wouldn't stop caring about me. Then something clicked for me while we were in the car together. One night we had a sleepover with all our friends and I decided to share a bed with him. We kept it from our friends for about a week because we didn’t want them to win the bet.
We got drunk and slept together, I thought it was a mistake at first; I was trying really hard to take a year to just work on myself. Things went on as they were: I picked him up from work to hang out. At the end they found out by watching us make out through a window (it was terrifying to open my eyes and see someone staring at us).
He started watching one of my favorite shows at the time just to talk to me more, and then eventually he asked me out. We both played along for weeks until the line between jokes and reality blurred. Hey, it may not go as well as it did for these women, but at least you got it off your chest!
I knew I was going to end up falling for him after our first date. He was in the process of divorce from his first wife and I had just gotten out of a long term relationship myself. Soon later he admitted he had actual feelings for me! Check out the entire Gen Why series and other videos on Facebook and the Bustle app across Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.
Over 2 years later and now we're getting ready to tackle long distance in college. We got together to go to a concert and grab some dinner one night and ended up discussing over our meal that after 16 years we’ve always been each others primary support system and why can’t we just support each other, together.
We kept things friendly and fun rather than expecting things to turn romantic or physical right away.
We started talking a lot more as friends after that and studying together then one day there was a very easy opening so I took the opportunity to make a dirty joke. We started talking about what we liked to do and then it became what we'd want to do with each other.
Last year, I met a girl named Jessica on Ok Cupid and we agreed to meet up and go on an adventure date throughout Seattle.
By not overtly expecting sex, commitment, or even compatibility upfront, and instead focusing on just creating a series of fun, memorable experiences, we had implicitly set the precedent for a approach to dating.
This friendship-first approach has fundamentally changed my understanding of dating and relationships.
