What we look for in our guy friends is very much the same in what we look for in a significant other: chemistry.
Why would we want to hang out with a boring bro who plays video games all day?
You’re into it, he’s into it, there’s some serious chemistry, and you might have stumbled upon something really special. In discussing this topic with my female friends, it seems to me that men are especially experienced in dealing with this dilemma.
Now, you’re faced with a most unenviable predicament: Walk away from someone who could end up being the love of your life, or put one of your friendships in jeopardy.
In our society — where Tinder messages have replaced hand-written birthday cards and 3 am beers have replaced steak dinners — there is more sexual tension between males and females than ever before.We don't get to choose our family, but we do get to choose our friends.Often, our friends echo us in terms of personality, morals, values, socioeconomics and goals. No matter the gender, we find our friends attractive.The truth is, when it comes to dating and relating, there really are very few black and white answers.Many times the answers lie in the gray areas, and in the deeper questions. If you’re afraid this new romance will have a major effect on the relationship you have with your friend, you may feel confused, disappointed and frustrated. Figuring out where the dislike is coming from is a good place to start and it can help you know how to pray for the situation and respond to it.
