I’m Ophira Eisenberg with The Love Feed. In this environmentally aware of times why not green up your relationships and recycle a friend into a lover? After all, you have so much in common with your shared love of street hockey and project runways. What could go wrong? SheKnows.com reiterates something we all know. The basis of a lasting relationship is a good solid friendship. But how exactly do you upgrade from friend to boyfriend 2.0 without crushing and burning. Askman.com reports that this sticky situation comes from thoughtful conversations. Something like, “Well, I have feelings for you. Our friendship is my top priority. But if you feel the same way, I’d love to take it to another level” which often in reality translates before drinks and then unexpected kissing faces zooming towards you mid half the hour. Other challenges may crop up too as you move from the friend zone to the end zone. You know how she IM’s to dinner or how we were first with parents by their first names. This have must have been annoying but acceptable when you are partners in life but will be completely intolerable as partners in love. So you might have to have more those grown-up talks. Maybe you should just stay prince but those will pair the bad weather and success for each transition from gluttonic to passionate state. It’s worth it. It’s not just easy being green.
