I am not in love. I am curious.
How does one upgrade the relationship from "friend" to "boy/girlfriend"?
Looking back, I can't say that I've had a romantic transition from being friends to being more than friends. Is it me or does that turning point involve sex?
So, there's that really awkward stage where there's sizzle at the beginning of the courting stage. (Courting? Do people still use that word in 2005 or did that word go out in the 80s along with shoulder pads?) Things are exciting. "Oooh. We touched. Does that mean anything?" And then, boom. Bodies touching. Lots of moisture. Suddenly, there's the relationship. For some, it takes five months. For others, it's two weeks.
On the flip side, we have that "we were friends forever" situation. These two people have been friends for three years. Then they started going out. Where is the turning point? One drunken night?
All this drama. Chalk this as another incentive to get married, besides the buffet of sex.
Again, I am curious. I would love to hear how people made that transition from friends to lovers. What was that turning point?
The lines are open.
