conscious green spiritual on line dating - Friends start dating each other

Kelly: Well, you spend as much time together as you possibly can, eventually you get irritated for pretty much no reason. One of our goals this year is to spend more time with other people because we need that to avoid some of those moments when we’re staring at each other and thinking, “OMG, GO AWAY!

Kelly: We were good ol’ fashion friends from the fall of 2010 to the fall of 2011. Then we were friends with benefits until I moved to Seattle, and then back to just friends until October of 2013.

Ashley: We met in a college class and slowly became friends.

Ashley: We hooked up for a semester in college, then spent about two years being mostly just friends again while he did an internship in NY (I was still based in Indiana) then moved to Seattle.

After a year in Seattle he came back to Indiana to visit, and we decided to try and date for real. Ashley: We talked so much about every decision and all of our feelings so that even when it felt weird, it quickly went back to not feeling weird.

When we broke up nine months later, all the usual post-breakup awkwardness and bitterness were multiplied tenfold by the fact that we were forced to hang out whenever our families got together, which was often.

On the flip side, when we rekindled the flame after college, our friendship and the friendship between our families became one of the best parts about our more-than-friendship.

Kelly: I believe we handled the evolution of our relationship very consciously.

Nothing felt weird to me, but the transitions didn’t just happen on their own.

We sought each other out, dated, then became friends. We’d find ourselves in the same city – Los Angeles, or Paris – because of our work, and we’d catch up.

I’d ask him for career advice, he’d ask me for relationship advice. I respect friendship more than a fleeting escapade.

Ashley: No matter where I am or what I’m doing, if I’m with Kel, we can turn it into a good time.
