Well, if you're not looking for something - relationship wise, then you'll enter into innocent casual friendships with people.
If things develop on both sides then great, you both know enough about each other to be comfortable in a relationship.

I think whatever you do is 50/50, trying to pull a complete stranger is 50/50.
Once your feelings with a friend have developed, it's 50/50 whether there's have too.
I guess it all comes down to good luck.

There was a group on Facebook, I wish all relationships were like the ones in PS I love You and The Notebook.

People are unfathomable idiots, that's probably why I stopped using Facebook.

I don't think it comes down to luck as much as it comes down to insightful operation. It's never 50/50 when you are actually in the position to have an impact on your own odds, and do so.

The picture I'm trying to paint is one of being aware of what you're getting yourself into. Whether you use that to your advantage or not is what mostly determines how things end up. Not everything is left to chance.

Well, yeah. You get as much out of it as you put into it, you'll vastly improve your chances if you put a lot into it.

Maybe it boils down to attraction?
There's a lot of friends out there who are pretty damn close, but they don't have that romantic spark so they remain friends.
It's kind of shallow, but I think it plays a massive part.
If you're close, and you both find each other extremely attractive - it'll happen.
I think the whole "I see you as a brother" thing is just a nice way of saying "yeah, you're a good friend but I don't find you attractive."

"Attraction" is a much broader word than simply physical appeal.

I agree, I only find someone absolutely gorgeous if they're gorgeous inside and out.

I think physical attraction plays a massive part, I have a friend at the moment who likes me, I like her conversation and company but I don't find her attractive, so it's not gonna happen.

Quite shallow on my part, but if there's no spark there then there's no spark.

probly, as long as they had a good personality. but if theyre one of those bitchy 'oh poor me' amputees, probly not. i would be able to understand the whining to an extent, but if theyre complaining ever 5 seconds, then no.

Male men? Are there other kinds of men?

I don't think real people do that.

Ha. I'm pretty sure they realize complaining will get them no where.

I don't think a moaning amputee would date someone so thick tbf

When you say one of THOSE amputees, are you referring to my uncle? Who was involved in a hit and run and has slowly delved into a state of depression?

Oh he's one of THOSE amputees
Why can't he STFU? I mean, he's only being driven mad by the pain.
He gets phantom pain and he goes to itch a limb that isn't there, but yeah - he definitely needs to stop complaining.
Though to be fair to him, he's more of a suffer in silence type.
