In the firstI shared some possible techniques to escape beautiful women seeking sex tonight Florida City friend zone and potentially turn from friend to boyfriend or girlfriend. In the secondI discussed this problem a bit more, sharing tips on how to avoid the friend zone in the first place.
Both posts received a good deal of commentary and stirred debate on whether men fdiend women can be "just friends.
