We just started dating
We had a shared history, our siblings adored each other and we even went on a few joint-family vacations.Having personally experienced both the positives and the negatives of dating a friend, I’ll say this: there are few things more precious than a friendship that becomes more than a friendship, but there are also few things more painful than losing a romantic relationship and a friendship simultaneously. To commemorate the end of Friendship Month at Man Repeller, I interviewed five couples who braved the stakes and went from “friends” to “more than friends.” Below, their thoughts on what that leap was like.I learned this lesson the hard way when I started dating a friend in high school.Not only were we good friends, but our families were also extremely close and had been for years.But, if you’re a few months in and things are going well, you’re in what we shall call the Gifting Gray Area.Somewhere between a box of candy hearts and hearts on boxer shorts, there’s a way to show your main squeeze that you think he’s pretty great, without overwhelming him with too many #feelz.

While the cost is nothing, the implications can be everything.
From silly socks to a flying disc—we have ten affordable and playful gift ideas for a new boo who’s not quite your bae (yet).
Sometimes the simplest gift is the best gift—especially when a relationship is just finding its sea legs. Infatuation comes with some downfalls though, such as chapped lips.
So don’t go overboard on the note inside—remind him of an inside joke, let him know you’re having fun…That kind of thing. Socks are quirky and pretty much completely devoid of a “deeper implication” so you can gift without fear of freaking your new guy out.
But aside from having your totally chill covered, a nice pair of socks is a luxury few people—and especially few men—will indulge in, so it is sure to warm his heart. Doing an activity, like frisbee, frees them up to talk about their feelings and other personal matters—which is always helpful for relationship growth!
