I was always the girl in a relationship, officially exclusive within two or three weeks after having just met. This is obviously not enough time to really identify whether this is the ideal person to know intimately. A few months in and it would start come to light how incompatible we were, and this was never going to be a long-haul type of relationship. It quickly became apparent that there are perks to investing in friendship before being romantically involved. Below are five reasons why there should be no romance without friendship: A typical guy interested in you romantically will often play the role of what he thinks you need which may not necessarily be who he really is. Being friends first, strips away the pretence and you will find he will be as real as it gets. When you’re just friends, a lot more things become easier to do with him and even around him. You can be more vulnerable, wear no makeup, choose to dress up or under and even easily share your challenges without the sense of judgement about your decisions. When you’re both yourselves, who you are as people is innately clear. This then determines whether the characteristics and personality is one that would be a match romantically or you’re just better off as friends. Taking your time to know each other non-romantically will reduce the chances of getting hurt unnecessarily. Truth is born in time. If you are right for one another then it will become clear as day and they will be no need to convince each other otherwise. The key is to allow time to play its part. Both of you will always understand that you have a life beyond each other and that silence cannot affect your confirmation with one another. So, there will never be a time where either of you feels some type of way. Friendship is a worthy investment it could save you from enduring unnecessary sorrow. If you do decide to become romantic, it will certainly make your relationship even greater because you will always have the foundation of friendship to keep you together regardless of the hardships experienced in life.
