He sends me samples of specimens from his research, like cool rocks or leaves. What, straight bros don't snuggle? I woke up before him and just thought about how nice this was, and how lucky I was. Jeff, a 45-year-old ad agency owner, instantly hit it off with a female co-worker, who he was interested in pursuing after he moved on to a new job. I'm not on Ian's level of attractiveness, but I'm pretty confident these days. Finally, what I find as possibly the most plausible evidence leaning toward the two of them being more than friends is that ProbablyGay1 is totally head-over-heels in love with Ian: I think about Ian a lot. To the women who think this is a turn-off: I understand the concern for the 'clingy' problem and so forth, but do you really judge a guy that harshly just because of circumstances that he can't really control? But even in the off chance that Ian doesn't feel the same way, ProbablyGay1 deserves the chance to know that for a fact and move on. It's embarrassing how much I like Ian.Next
Since then, their friendship has really escalated to what's definitely a best friendship, and what's also quite possibly a very beautiful romance. I was kind of floored, and asked him why. But you should find a way to meet people. My husband didn't have a circle of friends, though I did at the time, and I liked him fine. Well that made me sound like a hermit. I assumed he was out of my friend league because he was really handsome-not ripped, just genetically blessed in the facial department-and seemed really smart and cool, so nerdy me assumed that he was super popular.Next
He wasn't anti-social, just not pro-social and that was fine. Jeff says he still talks to his friend and crush, and they even hung out recently. Since this generation of singles is more emotionally-evolved than ever before, traditional dating norms have basically been tossed out the window, says psychologist Karla Ivankovich, Ph. Well, for starters, I think all signs here point to Ian feeling the same way. It's like I've built it up because we've been friends for so long.
He's not going to get that chance unless he works up the courage to ask Ian how he feels. He drove us to the top of a mountain, and we climbed into the back seat and just laid there together for hours. I think maybe it's because I already feel like I have Ian. Do you think it's worth it for ProbablyGay1 to bring it up and possibly risk his entire relationship with his best friend? Now, that said, you might still have questions about how your single guys see you—particularly that friend in your circle with whom sparks always fly. Eventually I decided that it was time to stop being afraid of Ian and try to be friends with him. As you can see, there are a lot of things that can be explained as things that regular straight best friends do, and other things that. We would hang out at each other's houses doing homework and watching cartoons after school a lot.Next
The foundation for a relationship has already begun building itself. When he came back he told me he identified a new type of thing I'm being vague, his major is weirdly specific. In fact, some of your very best friends are probably members of the opposite sex. You really only need one good friend. Its hard to make new friends as an adult and not all friendships from your younger years will last. Finding someone who is introverted as well may be good.Next
We put that question posed by When Harry Met Sally to bed ages ago. About a year after I really started hanging out with Ian, there was a revelatory moment where I realized that I was Ian's best friend. I've woken up with his arm around me before. I'm graduating college this year he's staying to get a higher degree and I realized it's the first time I can decide where to live, and I also realized that where I want to live is with him. Once I was having a bad day and he surprised me by showing up my house and knocking on my window. I think this really depends on the person. Would you date a guy that has no friends? I've been reluctant to ask them out because I don't have a real social circle.Next
If she's also somewhat introverted, it probably wouldn't bother her, but if she's the kind of person who wants to be around a lot of friends when she goes out, then it could be a problem. Ian's pretty reserved, so it looks like I'm going to have to be the brave one here. We mail each other gifts sometimes. In my mind, the person is obviously going to tell everyone. He's attractive and smart and funny and overall, probably my favorite person ever.
But between school, work, and needing time for myself I just can't make time or have the energy to keep up with friends. Yeah he was quiet, but that was only because he was kind of introverted, and he doesn't like talking about himself. . He helped you move apartments last year, and made dinner with all your favorites that week your boss decided to rule with an iron fist. So knowing this how much value would you put on a guy based on the number of friends he has? The whole time I'd known him I'd just assumed that he had a ton of great friends that he didn't talk about. Lately I've been wondering if Ian and I are more than just good friends at this point. Ian and I attend different colleges, but we talk everyday.Next
