questions and answers:
Can you go from friend zone to relationship?
It is possible to go from being friends to something more, if both people are romantically interested in each other and are open to experiencing it. Many married couples started out as friends before they realized they had feelings for each other. However, it is important to respect the other person’s boundaries and give them space if they decide they are not interested. They may well change their mind over time, but it should come from them authentically.
Should You End Friendship After Being Your Friend?
You should remain in friendship only if you really care about this person and intend to be a true friend to him, without ulterior motives or expectations for more. If you’re only going through friendship moves because you’re hoping you can get something out of them later (romantic or sexual), then this isn’t a true friendship — and you should end it. It is unfair and harmful to let the other person develop their trust in you as a friend, only to discover that your friendship is conditional, self-serving, or likely to be rescinded if you ultimately don’t get what you want.
How do I change her mind about us being just friends?
Some people change their mind about being “only” friends with someone after they develop comfort, ease, and a relationship with them over time, or once they see their friend in a new light because of a new environment, a new dynamic, or getting to know a friend’s romantic feelings. However, it is important not to use pressure, deception, or covert tactics to try to manipulate someone’s feelings or change someone’s opinion of you. Respect the confidence she gives you as her friend, and step back from the situation if you can’t. At the end of the day, you can’t force someone to care about you emotionally, and it’s important that you respect their boundaries and say no.
