When you’re friends with a guy first before starting a relationship, he already knows what makes you laugh and what doesn’t.
For this reason, there doesn’t have to be any awkward silences whenever you tell your favourite joke about German dictators.
When you’re friends first, you know for sure that this is going to last. And once he finds out about your issues, he doesn’t want to know anymore. Not only does he understand them, but he’s also totally cool with them.
He Would Never Make The Same Mistakes That Your Ex Did He’s your friend, so it’s a good chance he knows how badly your previous relationships went.
Perhaps you told him about the ex who used to lick your face, or maybe you told him about the guy who slept with you once or twice before failing to return your texts and calls. If he’s your buddy, he’s going to make darn sure that he doesn’t make the same mistakes that your ex did.
He only knows the early image we’ve presented to him. It could go one of two ways: It could go so well that he laughs until he dies (hopefully not literally), or it might finally be the moment when he realises that you’re a bit of an odd person with an odd sense of humour.
For a couple to work out, their sense of humour has to match up.
For a relationship to last, there absolutely must be some substance. And when you’re both friends before lovers, you know there is so much more to this than bedroom shenanigans.
There are so many reasons to be friends before you start dating someone and decide to commit to them.
When you’re friends with someone, you’ve already had enough time to know whether or not the two of you are going to have some fun together.
When you want to go for a dance late at night, you know he’s not going to grump and say that he was just about to slip into his pyjamas.
You Know He’s Got Class I remember my first boyfriend for all the wrong reasons.
We met at my high school’s prom, where we shared a stolen kiss under the disco ball. Under the dim lights of the disco ball, he looked really cute and I thought he was quite the catch.
Relationships don’t seem to be lasting as long as we want them to, and it could be because we’re rushing into things.
