If you marry for love, you're making a rookie mistake.  Marry for a partner and a best friend, with whom you have fallen in love, and your odds of a happy marriage vastly improve.

Love alone is insufficient for the long haul.

But my female friends don't appreciate surprise anal.

/don't ask how I know that

Sweet, all the people I want to bang want to just be friends! I'm sure they'll be elated to hear this news!
 
2021-07-21 12:16:52 PM  
That's a good plan if you don't want to be friends with them anymore in a few weeks.

Theres a reason these women are my friends, because they dont want to fu*k me.

I don't have any friends subby, can I bang yours?

Now I doubt the existence of "friends."
 
2021-07-21 12:22:08 PM  
Like women don't currently have enough issues with their male "friends" just hanging around because they want to sleep with them.

It was out there, you just didn't see it.  What most people call 'love' is that first rush of hormones as you bond, and it lasts about two years.

If that's all you have, you're in deep shiat when it fades.

yeah this didn't work.  Did this sort of thing three times, result ended the friendship each time.

Just bang Subby's mom like the rest of us.
 
2021-07-21 12:35:38 PM  
Hunh.  If you bang somebody you actually care about, and that you actually want in your life, you'll most likely be happier with that choice?  Wow!  Who would have thought?!

Trust forms relationships. Sex forms regrets. If the relationship cannot weather the regrets, then there was never really that much confidence and trust in it to begin with.

That's not what this new research says. You probably don't know about it though. It's from Canada.

That's what kids are for!  You too can make a dysfunctional relationship last 18 years or multiple lifetimes!

If I'm single and she's single, we're not friends, we're potential mates. Entering into a platonic relationship with someone you find attractive and not wanting to get in their pants is sign that someone needs therapy.

Single people hang out with others who fall into two main categories: people who make them look good by comparison, and people they want to bang. Know which you are, and get out if thats not how you want to be valued.

Shacking up with its best buddy

I had sex with a friend once when I was 17 or so...

the day after, we decided to date....

we broke up 2 weeks later but remained friends.

I'm still in touch with her today!
 
2021-07-21 1:02:05 PM  
It's as if these researchers have never even heard of the Friend Zone.  What, was their sample size "this one couple we met on a cruise"?

I know exactly zero couples that weren't actively dating within a month of spending any significant time together.  The ones that lasted, the ones that didn't, it doesn't matter.  Friend == "utterly unsexy / unmasculine" to 99.999% of women, apparently.  I and every other single male have done extensive, involuntary research on this subject, I promise you.  Friends we might have had an interest in, big or small, and ones we never even had the thought, it doesn't matter.  They never, EVER, for one microsecond looked at any of us as men.

Right or wrong, that's the reality.  Whether it's endemic in some way, or we just teach little girls to be that way somehow, it's all but ubiquitous.  Don't wait, guys.  99% of the time you'll still get rejected anyway, but that number climbs to 100% with women who consider you a good friend.

It happens. Im still on pretty good terms with all but one ex. Been with my wife now the better part of 20 years and its been a pretty good time. Every relationship has its ups and downs, but what it really comes down to is whether or not the fights are really worth it. Sometimes its just better to let it ride if it doesnt hold any real importance. Pedantry can absolutely murder any relationship, romantic or otherwise.

I have an arrangement like this with one friend. When neither of us is married or committed, we reconnect. It works because it's fun and there's no pressure.

Agreed.  There's only one ex I'm not in touch with.

back in the day, I had sex with female friends quite a bit

generally they came on to me

it was always usually somewhat surprising but usually quite welcome

also girls talk

if friend-zoned is a thing for you, you're not getting a good rap

If you are truly in the "friend zone", she probably thinks you're creepy.
