Dating an old friend
We know there often seems like there is a shortage of great guys out there but that’s not a reason to double up on the same man unless it’s an unbelievable opportunity that lies ahead.
It’s always best to have a conversation as adults and gauge your friends feelings very early on.
So tread forward with caution if they both say it was just a fling but if one person seems hesitant, leave it alone. This is tricky and we’ve seen this suspense, drama, thriller movie play out especially when it’s new, fun, and forbidden.
Let’s face it there are casual relationships that never materialized and then there’s always that main “one” that got away or just didn’t work out but the feelings and respect for each other was always over the top.
Would you be devastated if she never spoke to you again?
If the answer is, “we were just acquaintances and didn’t talk regularly” and you know it really wouldn’t bother you if the friendship was severed then we would recommend that you have a conversation with her just for “good faith” and then proceed.
