TMI Tuesday: October 16, 2012

Can we be just friends?

1.     Have you ever had a friendship with a someone where you secretly (or not so secretly) desired them?
Yes. I tend to become friends with men much easier than women. It just seems to be easier to get to know a guy and there's definitely less tension hanging out with them. Since I'm interested in guys, it does happen where I start to desire something with a friend. You just get to know them so well, you wonder what certain things would be like.
2.     Are you prone to jealousy, suspicion or insecurity when your partner spends time with an attractive close friend without you? Why?
The only female friend he has is a mutual friend and she's married and has a newborn baby. I am not jealous when he goes over to her house to hang out without me. I suppose if he did happen to make friends with another woman, I wouldn't really care. I know he wouldn't do anything to hurt me. He trusts me to hang out with other guys.
3.     Has a previously platonic friendship ever bloomed into a sexual relationship?
Yes. I'm fairly certain all of my relationships so far have started out at the platonic level, at least on my end.
4.     Have you ever remained close friends with an ex-lover?
Yes. If it didn't end badly, why not?
Bonus:  Have you ever developed feelings for a “friend with benefits”? How did it develop, unfold, resolve?
I have never been in this situation before. If I was, I'd probably distance myself from said person. It's supposed to be "friends with benefits" not a full relationship.

I'm willing to bet that if he's over at the mutual married friend's house these days, he's changing diapers and giving feedings so she can take a NAP!!!

PaganPrincess took the words out of my mouth! I remember the newborn days well, and while our sex drives were through the roof, there was far too much responsibility to go looking for regular extracurricular action.
