It's encouraging to know you were able to have that with a friend and not have things get all crazy. My wife is really only worried about the emotional connection, which, while present, isn't overpowering.
I was afraid before that it would make things go crazy between us...but then we started making out a year ago (me and her) and it didn't change the part that I was afraid of...and the thing is I didn't hide from her that I really liked her. It was pretty obvious...and with respect and honesty, lots of things can be achieved
