Cupid’s Advice:

Why is it okay to have boy-friends as a kid, but it’s considered weird as an adult?  Cupid thinks you can be just friends with someone of the opposite sex:

1. If it starts at work: If you meet someone of the opposite sex at work, it’s a lot easier to keep it on the friend level.  There’s no expectation to take the relationship past being friendly, because a work environment keeps romance out of the equation.

2. If you grow up together: If you’ve been friends with him or her from the time you were little, it’s easy to stick with your close friendship.  When you meet someone at a bar, it’s tough to start a friendship, as there are expectations of making it more.  Knowing someone from back in the day takes away that expectation.

3. It just happens: Some people simply have an easier time making friends with the opposite sex and connecting with them on a friendly level than they do with someone of their own gender.  No one goes out in hopes of landing themselves a great friend of the opposite sex.  It’s something that happens without even realizing it.
