Dating old friend
Odds are, however, if they haven't changed too much from high school, they just might.
A future spouse maybe waiting back in the past, and if that fails, there's always your old college friends. Or do you know a couple who have been together that long?
A good friend should have many of the qualities you look for in a potential partner.
"Outside of the familiar, does this person still match on career, family considerations, spirituality, etc." he says.
As friends, you already know all this so if you want a relationship you need to be sure the reasons are right.
Take the progression seriously Make a conscious effort with your new partner and treat them like a girlfriend or boyfriend, not just a friend.

Daren was acquaintances with his wife Lauren when we were all still worried about prom dates and detention, but it wasn't until eight years after graduation that they started dated.
