Cupid’s Advice:

You may have a strong desire to be in a meaningful relationship.   Keep in mind that building a friendship first can make the relationship more solid than rushing into one. Cupid has some advice on why being friends first is beneficial:

1. You’ll build a better trust: Within a friendship there is more openness and honesty. You are less worried about being judged by your friend than your partner. You feel comfortable being who you are, whereas in a relationship you tend to keep your guard up to prevent any heartbreaks.
