Building friendship before dating
I am in my mid fifties and have always been very shy and was married for 30 years to my 1st and only girlfriend.

You probably already have the foundation for speaking openly and honestly with each other, but since you are in a relationship now, both parties are likely to be vulnerable and afraid of being hurt or losing a friend. Do one thing weekly that shows you care more than just a friend.If you haven’t yet met the family, a month or two into the relationship is a good time to meet them. Some say that couples who play together stay together. Partner up with your new date and stay side by side. Just because you’re good friends doesn’t mean you’ll be good at dating. Let your anxiety go, be patient and remember: Slow and steady wins the race.Having family on board with your relationship will deepen the bond and make the friend status disappear. At a social event, stay in the same conversation rather than leaving your partner to talk to someone else. Staying side by side won’t smother the relationship, it will actually take your dating relationship up a notch and distance you from just being friends. If you’ve taken the risk of moving your friendship to the next level, give your relationship a chance to make it.
