But-they aren't ever going to be "family"..
I do happen to agree with you (as well you know I'm sure by now)...
that "newbies" should not be brought into the circle with my children until they are established friends.
There's got to be a safety net for my kiddos.
Anyway-it is VERY interesting hearing all of the different ideas!
For me, the past being what it is, if someone is going to be considered as a long term partner
I have to agree with MG, if there isn't attraction-the friendship won't go any further.
But I can be attracted, VERY VERY attracted and not take it past friendship.
