Friendship First Stamp by TheGrief Friendship First Stamp by TheGrief
Pretty self explanatory.

I've seen it numerous times but people don't seem to learn. They jump into a relationship simply because the opposite gender said they "liked" them in merely ten seconds of seeing them. (I'm exaggerating, :p NOT)

I prefer to see if they are good friends and THEN relationship.

Fav if you are going to use this stamp.


BTW, I know some relationships work this way, but the majority I've seen don't.

:iconthisplz: Oh man! You said it. I don't know how there can be a relationship without compatibility, friendship, etc. because to actually like someone is to like them for who they are, not just because they're attractive enough in your opinion. It takes time to know someone. A relationship on the spot for the sake of being in one will probably end with someone being unhappy. That's why casual dates without expectations is a good idea. 

If someone comes on to me too strong and too soon it kills any chance there might have been.

I can't date anyone who doesn't respect my friends. I always put my friends first.

I couldn't just jump right in to a relationship without building up a friendship with the person first.
I mean...........they might not even be nice.

I can't even count how many times I meet someone nice and the second day they want to move in, get in my pants and ask too many personal questions so soon. People don't seem to want to get to know each other anymore. It's like, "Hi, I ____. Are you a virgin and can I get into your pants?"

Oh, yes. I've had people ask if I were still a virgin on the second day of knowing them and asking to become friends with benefits. No way, Jose.

Omg, I can't tell you the number of times I've had the same thing happen to me and it's the biggest turn off in the world! I don't know why that stuff is their business either and "just wondering" is NOT a reason to ask. :x

I've learned to change the subject. I've also learned they get mad, but it's none of their business. To me it proves they just want something else than a friend to hang out, laugh, and play games or watch movies. :T

If they get mad they're not worthy of you or anyone else because they have no respect. Even on a date that's not how you talk to someone!

Uhm... are you aware friendship is a kind of relationship? maybe you should specify what kind of relationship comes after friendship.

I know a lot of girls in class that have new boyfriends every month that they just find around school. No joke. Thank you for making this stamp! XD

It disappoints me when girls and boys alike do that as well and it irks me that later on that they complain about having troubles with their boyfriend/girlfriend of a "week" just because they don't know them well. :V

You're welcome, just spreading out my opinion, lulz. :V

I agree with you here. I've also seen people date just because of their looks. :no: Relationships shouldn't be that way ever.

Thank you for sharing your stamp with the community.

Same here, some of my friends being victims to it despite me warning them.
Even if it takes me a long time, I prefer to establish a friendship with a guy and find out how he is with other people/around me, etc, other habits, before actually trying to put up a "commitment" with him.

Guys that go by the looks disgust me, it just irks me when they try to flirt and try to seem "friendly". Same thing applies to girls.

You're welcome~

I agree wholeheartedly. That irritates me about some guys and girls.

Me and my sister had guys flirting with us due to our looks. I don't like that all because they like me mainly for one reason. I'm doing the same thing when looking for a guy, he likes me for my personality and respects others, whether family or strangers. :)

It reminds me of my case. my past friend who was a boy wanted to date me, but I refused, because the moment I saw him, I knew I would never like him in that way. He showed an interest in me while we barely knew each other. After I told him I wouldn't like him in that way, he accpeted it nad we became close friends- nothing changed about my feelings toward him. After two years, he asked me out, using the excuse of: "why do you think everyone thinks we should become a couple? it means something". Of course I refused, he even disappointed me.

Very true. But then I also feel that I wish I can find someone threw being friends too. Instead consisting on hook-ups.

I soo agree! my gf was at first my best friend and I never knew at that time we'd get in a relationship later on! It just happened, when she admitted she really liked me, and I felt the same aswell! A good relationship starts with friendship! ^^

The funny thing is I found a great friendship by first dating a guy then becoming friend with him later XD
But I totally agree with the stamp.

I'd understand if you "know" the guy before dating him and then "forming" a friendship.

I just find it stupid that some girls will just jump into a relationship just to brag about it when they haven't known the guy for a month or so.

I knew him for about a week before started dating him XD We formed a friendship along with our relationship, which lasted even though we aren't together anymore =w=~

LOL, to brag about is completely stupid D: To jump on a relationship for impulse and to try I can even understand, but to brag is >>; Really wtf...

That is so true!

My pet peeve really is meeting guys who I ONLY want to know as friends, but they insist and try to make a romantic relationship happen by asking "Well will we ever have a shot at romance, cuz I think you're beautiful and I would love to be your boyfriend!"

I met a guy before who I had a lot in common with, and the first thing he asked me on AIM was, "Will I ever get to date you? Cuz I really want a girlfriend!"

I will throw an effing CYNDER block at them if they try to make it happen with me.

Plus I'm terrified of dating!

Ditto to your explanation~

I don't believe in online "boyfriend/relationship", its stupid. But I still find it hilarious that some girls are like, "Oh yeah, I have an online boyfriend~" And I'm like, "LOL WTF, you're stupid." (And then they think they are better than one because of that, like.. wtf?)

As for friends (in person, not online fools lol) who are guys, if they want to pressure our friendship into a relationship, I'll just bust their bubble the hard way. Or just end the "friendship", I don't like to be pressured into doing stuff I don't want to.

At first I wasn't terrified of dating, but I'm sort of "scared" of dating in college. I guess its just a matter of trust to your partner. :3

How about when a friend chooses your ex over respect for your friendship a month after you've broken up, says they feel bad but later says that it's a stupid fake rule based on jealousy when you've stopped giving a shit for a long time. x)

Yeah, it annoys me when at first, they won't shut up about, "OMG I THINK THIS GUY/GIRL HAS A CRUSH ON ME LOLOLOLOLOL" and then "OMG I HAS A BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND CAUSE HE/SHE SAID HE/SHE LIEKD ME A LOT LOLOLOL" And they barely met them! WTH??

What has happened to the whole, "Oh~ Let's be friends first and then I'll consider it~" But I guess some girls/boys are stupid nowadays and just want to show off that they have "OMG LIEK A SOULMATE LOLOL"


... LOL, you can tell I've experienced this a lot~ It freaking annoys me!
