Queers don't tend to expect our dates to come into our lives completely free of prior complication.A good friend should have many of the qualities you look for in a potential partner.
Compromise is important in any relationship, and the best way to compromise is by starting with the truth. You need to get to know each other, learn one another's values and see each other in action.

You already know him—he's your best guy friend.In 1989, we learned from Harry and Sally that maybe "the one" had been standing next to us all along, making us laugh, drying our tears and singing "Surry with the Fringe on Top." Maybe the guy you're meant to be with is not the one you're dating, but the one giving you dating advice.They wholeheartedly believe that it's wrong, disrespectful, and if a friend did that to them, they'd never talk to that person again.They believe this is something everybody knows, that they're just following the rules.
