it’s great that you started out as friends. it’s truer than before when they say, “just start out as friends first.” but start it with good faith and an open mind — this is really true, you must and you have to. so then there will be no expectations, no rules and no assumptions. you can dismissed the ‘what if-s’ and just do what you want to do. you won’t be labeled eager, desperate or obnoxious. you’re just excited to have found a nu friend, that’s all. as long as you be nice and don’t go overboard. when you feel weird out, or clueless about what’s next, just clear your head and take it easy. tell/remind yourself, this is just friends — do what friends do.
you’ll be fine.
