Being friends after casually dating
You know how you feel when your friend is like, "OMG, my friend Jennifer's friend Jennifer is pretty," and you're like, "Ugh, I don't care about strangers? Is cuddling with a casual sex partner even cuddling? Consciously holding back from saying things about the future.
He always reminds you that you’re awesome, and plays into all your jokes (good and bad).
“Saying, ‘I'm just being single right now,’ or ‘I’m focusing on work,’ or the like is the worst, because that person is implying that a good relationship would hinder their life!
It’s such a bummer to find out that someone who has expressed interest is not available because she needs to ‘focus on herself’ for a bit.”5.
It may not be as ‘romantic’ as you’d like, but at the end of the day, if a guy is not sure about your interest, he won't swing.”3. Be honest with yourself: Are you on the fence some of the time, unsure if you want to move your friend chemistry into a full-blown relationship?

A collection of mixed signals, like skipping my goodbye happy hour and ghosting me on some texts that dropped hints about grabbing dinner,” he says.
Jeff says he still talks to his friend and crush, and they even hung out recently.
