I wish every teenager and young adult could experience a friendship with someone from the opposite sex with no strings attached. Sometimes, the consequences of bad dating relationships can be hard and life-changing, like unintended pregnancies, STDs, and abuse.
The same is true for guys. We think we need that special girl, but often we simply want a woman in our lives to help us understand more about the female point of view. The first four reasons point out that these relationships tend to be genuine, supportive, quality relationships that you can depend on. You tend to respect your friends more than the people you randomly date. People who have Just Friends relationships tend to take care of their friends more than people they just randomly date.
We respect each other. Just Friends can help fill the gap for those who have never experienced a good brother or sister relationship. Christy By the way, if you have a good relationship with your brother or sister, you are truly blessed. When dating, there can be a lot of fear of losing your boyfriend or girlfriend. So many times, people are not honest with one another about their feelings.
All this does is make the dating relationship weak and prone to fall apart. Learning how to be honest in a relationship is extremely important. His name is King Solomon and he said, An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips. I have always been amazed at how real friends will protect each other no matter what.
I have noticed how best friends who are guys are extremely protective over their best friend girl. This desire to protect is not some way to control and manipulate the girl. It comes out of real love and friendship. And she feels that same way. You can learn much about the opposite sex without the pressure of dating.
It seems to me that many people really do not understand the opposite sex. Because along with the deep emotion of young love or infatuation comes confusion and frustration. They can answer a lot of your questions about the opposite sex and save you all kinds of grief. There is no sexual pressure. Being pressured to have sex can be a very difficult experience. In the end, some bargain away their bodies in their attempt to keep the relationship going.
You can relax and just enjoy the friendship with no sexual strings attached. What a stress reliever that is! It has never been that way between any of us! Just Friends are comfortable with each other with no need to impress.
There is tremendous pressure on teenagers and young adults to impress other people, especially the opposite sex. They end up not even being themselves, but instead what they think the person of the opposite sex wants them to be. Not being yourself and performing for others is extremely exhausting and never worth the effort.
Just Friends helps solve that problem because with Just Friends you can be yourself and not worry about impressing. One of my best friends is a guy, and we talk about almost everything. The Culture Challenge. Think about all the movies you have seen that have to do with two people of the opposite sex.
The messages we get from culture are often shallow and in some cases just flat out wrong. In almost every movie they meet, supposedly fall in love, have sex, get mad at each otherget back together, and live happily ever after. Almost no movie or pop song talks about two people meeting each other and becoming best friends without the sex and drama. The Developing Feelings Challenge. Unless there is a very clear understanding about your friendship, there is bound to be confusion over changing emotions from friendship to romance.
Having these discussions where you talk about your feelings is not easy to do, but it is the only way to clear up any confusion that could turn from romantic feelings to hurt feelings. I asked myself why? Nikki is very wise. She is in touch with her emotions and hopefully has already talked to her best friend about these issues. The Sexual Tension Challenge. So there ends up being more hugs, kisses, and touching than what is appropriate. When this happens, there is tremendous confusion and tension in the relationship.
Not looking for more then just friends seems like everybody who sees two people from the opposite sex together hanging out must have a romantic relationship, and so they will make suggestive comments and tease you about your relationship. This puts pressure on both of you. Yes, they are challenging and you must show respect and discipline in them, but the advantages far outweigh the difficulties. Photo by Samson Katt.
