My boyfriend and I were also close friends before we started dating. I thing that it was a fast moving relationship (altough I am still waiting for my proposal) because once you already trust and respect your other half then things move faster.

FI and I were friends for a year before dating, things progressed slowly, but so worth it! I think being friends first made our relationship stronger from the beginning.

Ive known my SO for 6 years and we’ve been together a year and a half. It wasdefinitely a bit slow to start with.Partly because I didn’t want things to change, partly because we used to work together and he was my superior so there’s some issues there haha. But yeah, I feel like theres not really a heck of a lot left to learn and things have moved quickly after the initial awkwardness. The years of friendship mean that we went from honeymoon phase to comfort very quickly. And there’s no way I’d entertain the idea of marriage after only a year and a half had I not known him previously.

I’ve found this to be true for us, too.  The knowing him for so long definitely helped in the trust department.  And we never had the problem of getting to know each other like many other couples we know did.

DH and I were friends first…he was casually dating other women at the time and actually LOVED my relationship advice. I was attracted to him but didn’t think I was his type. 

It progressed rather quickly…after I noticed he was becoming more flirty, texting me all the time, and going out of his way to impress me. We admitted our feelings but felt weird about it since we had a lot of the same mutual friends. 

The only downside is knowing a majority of his secrets and vice vs. He’s said he might not have given me so much info in the past if he thought he had a chance w/me. But the fact that I didn’t judge him for his past mistakes is what made him realize I was different.
