Keeping an Opposite-Sex Relationship Platonic (not romantic) (1) Have respect for the person you may be attracted to.

(3) Spend time in groups. (4) It is not a given that everyone will marry.
Loneliness when a friendship ends This is normal, but you can't dwell on it too long and feel sorry for yourself.
