One of the most important features of a couple relationship is the quality time that you have in the beginning of your relationship. Usually there's an early passion that would bring a desire to know everything about your partner. This is a wonderful way in which to become acquainted with one another. As you come to know each other deeply then you will become not only partners but as close friends as well. But there are instances also that there were people who were friends at first and then later decided to become partners or couple and I believe that it was the friendship that made them known each other so well. In my end, I've known my partner for a very long time now but I had only come to know him well when we decided to start a relationship. We were neighbors then but I couldn't even say that we were friends. But when we he started to court me then that's the time when we begin to ask questions and tried to get all our chances to know what is there to know about each other. And now, throughout all those years that we been through I can certainly say that I know my partner so well and eventually he has become my bestfriend. So, do you consider your partner as your friend too and how did you started your relationship? Is it by being a friend to being a partner or the other way around?

My story about my partner is totally different,Mine is quiet exciting.Going back to our college years,both of us our writers of our school paper.We are from different provinces.One day,a conference of writers was held and it happened in their school.I was chosen as one of the delegates of ur school.Just to give you an idea,we do not know each other yet.The conference took one week and we get to mingled to all the delegates from other schools.We don't get the chance to meet each other but i can see her that she is staring at me, i just don't know the reason behind,maybe because I am very noisy.On the last day of the conference, there was this yellow paper that we were asked to write our names and contact numbers.While writing,i notice one name which was written in a very cute way,so i decided to get the number.on my travel going back to our province, i texted the number that i got and few seconds,i got response from her.i asked about her physical appearance because i might remember her,but she did provided me.What she told me is she came from the host school.so i became very curious.who is the girl behind this hand writing.to make the story short,we became text mates for 3 months and after that we decided to meet on their province,and to my surprise, it was the girl who was starring at me at the conference.Now, you won't believe me, we are already 8 years being together and we really know each other.i hope you like my story.

Hi rberon. Yeah, you have a great love story. It's interesting. It reminded me of my college life as well. I was into those kinds of competition also and was delagated as well on such school activities and yeah, I met new friends but my husband was not one of them. LOL! Anyway, it's truly amazing to hear such wonderful stories like yours. You were really destined to know her on that day. Thanks for sharing! Happy mylotting!

It's good to have a partner that you two are friends together before you start a relationship as boyfriend/girlfriend. It's better to know each other first rather than say yes to him at the first time the guy asked you. It's kinda not good for me. A big NO NO!..hehehe! but some of the people still do that maybe for some reasons. Me, don't have that experience yet..Probably soon, I'll make sure to get to know to him first before anything else..LOL! Well, I'm glad that you consider your partner not just a husband but a bestfriend as well. Just keep the flame burning. Keep it up! God bless you both!^_^

That's so wonderful to hear! Amazing! keep it up. Yes I consider my partner as my best of friend as well. I can tell him anything and everything even if he gets mad, it's okay as long as I tell him. I cannot afford to lie to my partner. I also wants him to feel the same way toward me but I don't want to expect.

Hi mavie! Yeah, to lie to your partner would not do you any good and as well as to your relationship. And if you want him to feel the same way towards you, don't worry for as your relationship goes deeper it will come along with it. Thanks for the respond. Cheers!

wow, i think you started your relationship well and in the right foot. i believe that friendship is a good starting point for a relationship. you are right that this is where partners start to get to know each other, spending time together, enjoying each other's company. as they get to know each other, their affection develops and formalizes the relationship as couple. but the desire to know more of the partner continues. wish u the best in your relationship.

Hey mensab! Yeah, you are right in saying that the desire to know more about your partner should continue. It's just like saying that you'll have to fall in love with your partner over and over again. And yes, it is very essential to keep the relationship to grow and to keep it strong. Cheers!
