Thanks for your answer "If you become best friends, isn't there a danger of the girl not wanting to marry you because she only sees you as a friend or a brother?" The "friend zone" is one of the questions I have had on my mind for the longest time.
You answered it in a very clear and easy to understand way.† I am in my forties and have frequently in the last few years found myself in the "friend zone."† The conventional worldly view I heard is that I developed too much rapport with a woman†before attraction was created resulting in the friend zone, when in fact she wants someone "perfect" who makes here feel a very certain way.†
In my 20's I was clueless on a great deal of things, and in my 30's I was dealing with unemployment and the finances that go with it.†In the last few years I got my life back together and am looking for a woman, but I keep hitting a brick wall with the "friend zone" issue.† But at least I understand it a lot better and from a Christian viewpoint too.
A pleasure to be of service.
