Their friendships told a different story: we don’t have to be afraid that love and dating tried and failed will end bitterly.
It was a lesson many of the other guests took note of.
It’s an age-old dilemma: are your friends on or off limits for dating?
We do text often, about all sorts of things.)It's just strange because he's been pursuing me for a while, and now the past few weeks - since I've started giving him 'signs' that I want more than a friendship - he's started playing games. Like he's always been honest with me (I think it's cute like if he didn't respond to me right away he would tell me what was going on, but now like he'll text me at work asking how my day is and I'll tell him and ask about his then he doesn't say anything to me - this keeps happening, it's just odd).
There is a myth—an urban legend really—among many dating individuals today that goes like this: If I date him (or her) and it doesn’t work out, it will be awkward in our social scene. It’s kept women from showing interest or saying yes to certain men asking them on a date.
And dare I say, its perhaps delayed or even prevented some “happily ever afters.” My friends’ wedding, and the attendance of their exes, proves this myth to be just that.
These exes already know what it’s like to be friends, which makes it easier to transition back into friendship.
Of course, this assumes the ex-couple didn’t move into a “friends-with-benefits” relationship, which can be quite complicated.
