Is it only me or is a general fact? There is a very thin line between friendship and intimate relationships. Am I correct in my statement? I always seem to want one thing which unfortunate for me turns into the other......... You care too much for a person(ofcourse the other sex) and it turns into a friendship and all you would hear is that "you are a friend of mine and i can't think of you as anything else" why do people do that? when i am not interested in friendship, I am very much intertested in a relationship between two people,ofcourse relationships are built on friendships , but why women not diffreniate between those wo things and volla you've crossed the d**n thin line and it is nearly impossible to cross it over again. Maybe i am just sour because it happened to me like at least 6 times in my life,I want something and it turns out the other.What am doing wrong? or am not asking the right questions or maybe i am caring too much ? Please let me Know...............!!!!!?

Maybe you give mixed messages, or maybe the women you seek are not ready for relationships. Men do the same thing in my case. I have finally figured out that to take it slow, friends are good, and most of all let your confidence show, and let go the ones that don't want to pursue more. They never did want anything more. I think we ignore the "friendship" only line at first thinking it could turn into more. But, if someone states in the begining "friends only" then leave it at that. People who are interested in you will never say "friends only"....Good Luck!
I don't know why this has just come back onto my head but it has. It is one of those silly throw away sayings that my High School English teacher used to say. At least once a week he'd say: 'Boys, marry your best friends!' It is true.
