I was the guy who sent his male friends birthday cards well into their 20’s.

I was the guy who went through periods of depression and anxiety, only to find that my male friends either clammed up or disappeared.

Jealousy and possessiveness occur in all relationships- including friendships.

I've been envious of new friends that supplant old friendships.

That’s because the trickiest stage of getting a girlfriend is the transition from when you’re “sort of dating” her to actually “in a relationship”.

That’s because the reality of the situation is often the EXACT opposite of the story in your head.

Girls have told me they had a huge crush on me but they assumed I never made a move because I wasn’t interested in them, when actually I was assuming the exact same thing!

You will never know the truth of how a girl feels about you without talking to her. So I urge you to always seek the truth rather than always making assumptions, for example: You assumed she was into him – that you were too late – and it wasn’t worth embarrassing yourself by going over. And she was only being polite and secretly hoping you’d come over and save her from a painfully awkward situation.

Another example: You assumed she wasn’t interested in you anymore, so you gave up.

I've never been "friends first" with a boy, though the concept is quite fascinating. Many experts advise that couples should be friends first.
