It is such an individual and personal thing that I don't think you can ever one specific answer. Personally I find it easier if I don't know the person beforehand! I could never date any friends of mine, they've become like brothers. Plus it would be painful if we split up and ruined any potential friendship. Usually I need to know them a little before going out but obviously you don't really get to know the person that well till you actually go out.
Dating is precisely for getting to know the other person before making it official. So, go for it! Hmm, depends how much i like that person.
If only a little i wouldn't bother but if i like that person alot then i would. Well, you won't get to know the person until you date them? We really clicked and i enjoy every moment with him even now. Well thats the thing, who says you need to dive into a relationship head first falling madly in love etc. Its just what it is, take it slow and see where it goes.

I always told myself I wanted to get to know someone for at least 6 months before dating, which actually never happened for any of my relationships I've had about 6 So, after my ex and I broke up, I said I wouldn't date anyone before actually getting to know them first.
Posted September 19, Posted September 20, I think you should go for it. Do you need to be friends prior to dating? What if it's a blind date? If I was of a cynical nature Why do you have to be friends first?
Have you as friends "gone out" or gone to dinner? Why not just ask if he wants to get dinner or something? Take it from there. You will be able to tell if there are sparks. There are no rules about this. I was never 'friends' with my husband, I saw him and decided he was The One.

Obviously I didn't let him know for a while, played it cool for a few weeks, as you do. This was , and I can't remember how long we left it before we started 'dating' we don't really do 'dating' in England but I think it was less than four weeks before we started playing doctors and nurses. Only you and he knows the answer to this question. Only you guys know how you feel.
Once you are sure the feeling is mutual and both want to become more than just friends. I dont think there is a time limit. I think dating and becoming friends can go hand in hand. My husband and I were friends for a week before we started dating.

He liked me the whole time and I just viewed him as a friend. We met the first day of college and became instantly close. We were together two years before we got married and next month is our one year anniversary. I agree that there is no rule. You should factor in whether trying to take the friendship to the next level may cause you to lose him as a friend if things don't work out romantically.
Also, will you both be comfortable remaining friends if he isn't interested in more?
