I looked at him as a friend until I realized I liked him. || Is anyone else dating someone that they use to be friends with? Because that’s me. Alex and I were friends before we ever started dating or thought that we liked each other. And to be honest, I’m surprised that he stuck around, because on date one, I wasn’t ready on time so he had to sit in my room while I finished getting ready. On date two, I had just gotten off of work and he was suppose to go to my work’s Christmas party for me and he was almost to the venue when I said I didn’t want to go anymore. I went back & forth with wanting to go until finally, I decided I wanted to go and then he took me to the temple lights after since I had never been. But I can truly say that I’m grateful he stuck by my side after our first two dates. What’s everyone else’s first date stories? Or is anyone else dating someone they were friends with?
