What we look for in our guy friends is very much the same in what we look for in a significant other: chemistry.
Why would we want to hang out with a boring bro who plays video games all day?
If you deny this, ask yourself, “Why do I hang out with him?
”It's inevitable: You both form feelings at one point of the relationship.
Time wise, it can come in a variety of combinations.
You may fall first; he may fall first; perhaps, you will fall for each other at the same time. You can't control when you will fall for each other, but the way you handle falling for him will definitely shape your relationship.
Do you ever notice how you feel when he brings a new girl into the picture?
How about when he posts a picture with his new girlfriend on his arm at the same restaurant he took you for your 23rd birthday?
Whether you like it or not, you feel threatened, even if you can honestly say you don't want to have sex with him.
If this feeling of threat hasn't happened yet, trust me, it will.
Discussing college basketball, microbrews, sex and politics with your best guy friend may give you some relief from the typical girl drama you learn about at Sunday brunch with your roommates from college.
