As I gradually began to realize this was bullshit, my feelings of anger toward Katie disappeared. In fact, both Sean and I still talk to Katie regularly. We didn’t feel that pressure, because we were just friends.
And guess who I went ring shopping with when Sean and I were talking about getting engaged? Katie invited us to her own wedding a couple of years ago (she married another guy in our friend group), and none of us saw any of it as awkward at all. We were already people we let our hair down around, even before we started dating each other.

I can’t get on board with this, because I actually think this new way of dating makes for stronger relationships than the more formal procedure of the past.
Is there even anything to return that symbolically says this is over? Anyway, he broke up with her a couple months later and they both stayed in the friend group without a problem. (I’m also not completely sure this is as new as Segal and Boone think it is, but we’ll let that slide because I’m feeling nice.)I married Sean because he and I had formed a strong partnership and camaraderie that I didn’t want to lose.
Don’t sit around waiting for a boy to make you a priority, communicate his intentions, or even call you on the phone.
Girls, stop expecting guys to make any formal attempt at winning your affections.
Good traits to have are flirty, great kisser, hopeless romantic probably the most, family oriented if you wanna have kids and teach them to walk/talk better. I was wondering if anyone knew if same sex marraige is available in the game.
