Will Dating Friends Ruin the Relationship?


Every great relationship is usually the result of the two becoming great friends.

It will create a dynamic that requires attention and effort to make sure it doesn’t spin out of control and take your friendship with it.

If both are not on the same page and have the same feelings for each other, that will deep six any success dating might bring about and tear the friendship apart, never to be repaired. If one wants more out of the relationship than the other, a rift will develop somewhere along the line that you will never get over. If it’s just a physical attraction, after a good time in bed where do you go? Dating friends can be a wonderful experience if it is handled correctly.
