I'm curious what people think. I'm not talking about someone who is your coworker or classmate that you meet everyday and speak with. I mean those people that you invite to come over to watch a movie or go somewhere together but just as friends. Do these work? Can there be such thing that it NEVER evolves into a relationship? I find it pretty hard to have a kind of friendship when you see each other often but never getting more. On the other hand if some time passes there is even an imaginary barrier, or the "friend zone". From this place it would be pretty hard to evolve. Both of you would have labelled the other as friends and then nobody wants to ruin the friendship with a possible relationship that has a chance to fail. If it really turns out to not work or ends with a break-up then the initial friendship would be much much harder to keep / resume. However I have a friend who was 2 years best friends with his girl before they got together. What do you think? Experiences?
