Friends first, friends forever

from Sigmund, Carl and Alfred, via the Anchoress:
Physical intimacy cannot ’speed up’ the friendship part of a relationship, much less the emotional part of that relationship. Physical intimacy will either enhance a solid platonic relationship that already exists or it will destroy a relationship that might have worked, had the physical intimacy been delayed.
I know this is true, and I know it from sad, sad experience. Fortunately, deep, real friendships never end, and God is good.
