Friendship to dating transition
” Many are convinced that it’s hard to turn an established friendship into a relationship, but that cannot be further from the truth.
Romantic relationships that start off from a foundation of friendship often last the longest.
For example, your crush may like to play badminton.
Even if you prefer other sports, make it a point to show up to his or her badminton sessions and take part, or just to cheer them on.
Trust me, there already is a relationship, and something significant is about to happen to it.
By all means, though, it is past time to do something, and God wants to work it for everyone’s best and His glory.
As I have told many readers who’ve asked, "But what do I say? She needs to know you simply can’t be close "buddies" anymore.
For one, your heart can’t take it, and two, your close friendship could very well be keeping both of you from pursuing a relationship God might have for you with someone else.
