How to keep a friendship after dating

Rated 4.18/5 based on 856 customer reviews

When I opened the door to his office one afternoon to offer our usual casual hello, an alchemical change packed a walloping charge through my body.When had my coworker become a handsome man with whom I suddenly wanted to share more than impersonal cafeteria trays in a crowd?We kept things friendly and fun rather than expecting things to turn romantic or physical right away.

Over the course of our time together, we talked about plenty of our romantic and sexual preferences, but neither of us pressed for anything physical.I’m not sure what flipped the switch for me, but I’d already cheered him when he ran two marathons, listened when his wife left and they divorced, and written while he lived abroad twice serving a medical charity.We’ve raised money for causes and exchanged myriad e-mails about jobs, travels, and our families—my sister’s marriage, his siblings’ children being born.“Don’t wait for your feelings to change to take action.Take action and your feelings will change.” ~Barbara Baron Paul and I had been acquaintances for eight years.
