  • Yes. He definately is fun to hang out with, he is a goofy and whitty guy, and he really can hold a great conversation. I would definatley be friends with him if we hadn't gotten together otherwise.

  • I liked him before I ever loved him. He's my bestfriend. Life is just so much better with his smile in it! Which in turn makes our love all that much better!

  • If we'd never had a romantic relationship to start with, yes I would have been friends with him. If we were to break up, I'm not sure I could maintain a friendship with him. I'd want to, but I just don't know that I could without it hurting too much. I would keep as civil a relationship as I could with him so he could still be a part of my kids lives (he's not their bio dad), but to be friends and just chat with him...I think would be too hard.

    We met on a dating site, but due to his job, we had quite some time to get to know each other before we started dating. So, we were friends first.

  • me and my bestfriend are kinda like that. we tried to be together. all we did was fight..and he cheated more than once. we're 2000 miles apart and that had some to do with it. But we love each other very deeply but we know right now we just can't make it work. so we're just staying friends till we figure out our life.

  • We were best friends before we got together now but I don't know if I could maintain a friendship with him if we didn't work out.

  • Absolutely. He's my best friend, and I his. Our relationship is based out of friendship, not sexual attraction... although ;)

  • Luckily we were friends first. So that helps a lot. But yes, there are days, I'd rather he just go away & leave me alone! (not die, just get out of my face! ) And I'm sure there are days he gets sick of me too!

  • He's my best friend, so yeah, I like him. Don't always like the way he acts, but he feels the same about me. lol. Like SabrenaLeigh said though, I can't imagine not having some kind of romance w/ him. We've been together a decade and I'm still very very attracted, so to only be friends, I think would be next to impossible.
