Cupid’s Advice:

Taking your friendship status to the next level is often tricky and can lead to sticky situations.  After all, it can be hard to go back to being just friends after dating doesn’t work out:

1. It’s mutual: Sometimes feelings between friends can go unreciprocated.  Make sure that you both want to take your relationship to the next level and that it’s not just one-sided.

2. The timing is right: First he was in a relationship and you were single, then you had a boyfriend when he got dumped.  If you two finally find yourselves in a situation where you are no longer obligated to be just friends, move right on ahead.

3. Ease into it: One day the two of you are spending Sundays watching old movies, and the next thing you know he’s taking you out to dinner on Friday night.  When you don’t realize you’re in a relationship, that’s when it’s the most right.
