You might have just started dating, or maybe you’re just keeping things casj for the time being. Your goal really isn’t to be best friends, you’ve got besties on your own. Even so, maybe just spend a little extra time trying to get to know one another. Just like you can rely on your teammates at work, or on the field (intramural sports & rec, how about joining a league with your love??), having a teammate IRL is a good thing.
You’re building something good, but you’re not exactly first-one-to-call status with your S.O. yet. Share interests with one another, invite each other out with your respective friends, show that you’re putting the effort in. And if you can, don’t try to push your partner into the friendzone, by making them do things you just like to do with your friends - without doing things on your own / discovering what the two of you like doing together as a duo.
You’re certainly on the road to closeness with your companion, and you’re taking the right steps to get even closer. Don’t be afraid to become basic when it comes to your relationship, either. If you can complete each other’s sentences and know what each other’s fave foods or favorite type of fêtes are, you might get annoying to your tribes, but WTFC?
Close doesn’t even come close to the level of intimacy between the two of you. You know each other so well, and you’ve logged the man hours to make that happen. You’re Carly and Evan type of love, and can trust one another to pick out each other’s clothes - because you’ve got their style sketched forever in your mind. You go through all the good parts of life together and will be doing so for the long haul.
