The other day I was having a conversation with a friend about the fine line between just hanging out with a friend and having a date. Can men and women really just be friends?
I personally believe that men and women can be just friends up to a certain point. The line between being friends and being more is a very thin one that many people easily overstep. I have overstepped it in the past and in most cases it leads to hearts getting broken.
The thing is that some of us have become so scared of hanging out with the opposite sex because we immediately think that having coffee with someone is a date.
Well it is not.
But it could be.
That’s kind of the the thing right. It could be just coffee but it could also be COFFEE.
To me personally (and I would really love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below) the fine line between the two of them is the intention behind it.
I know, I know…. One person could have an intention and the other person doesn’t. But you won’t know that until you have that coffee (and cake I hope), right?
My point is if you get along with a person or like hanging out with them there is nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean you need to date them or even marry them. Just be friends. Do life together and take it light and easy.
Why don’t we just take all the complication out it and relax a little bit? We sometimes put way too much pressure on a situation and therefore on the person.
On a final note though if you are “just friends” can I encourage you with something? The line between being just friends and being more is thin and I just want you to be aware of your conversations, the things that you share and how deep you go. That will be a good indicator for you to know when you might be overstepping that line because you will start opening your heart which doesn’t have to but it my case almost always led to falling for the guy which then ended in you know what.
Now, let’t hear your thought below in the comments. I literally can’t wait to hear from you
