I’m sorry to hear that Detroit is equally bad in terms of dating. And, yes, the FWB situation typically seems to end the way it did for you. (I have always known I wasn’t cut out for FWB, but hearing your and other stories confirms a similar outcome.)

I’m glad you dated someone light-hearted and fun, but I can see where the class clown act would get old, though. It sounds like you found the perfect compromise by keeping him as a friend!

Thank you for reading and responding! Best of luck to you in your ongoing search, Laura!
