Girlfriend dating friend - updating time bsd

I'm not trying to generalize, but most of my female friends talk about past boyfriends, dissecting why their relationships didn't work.

" This is the status I was greeted with this week on the Facebook page of one of my dear girlfriends.

Well with a delicate situation like this, you need as much help as you can get to make the decision and process of transition from friends to couple run smoothly.
