What do you think?I suspect it is reversible conditioning more than a kind of "imprinting". Better NOT swap any more boxers!

You did a great job of explaining your friendship. I would say don't worry about what anyone else has to say. Really, the only people that should have an opinion that matters regarding this are you, your SO and your friend. There are fine lines, but you have made it pretty clear what this friendship is to you. Again...don't worry about how others view this. Congrats on your engagement!!

I love my SO with all my heart and then some but I'm honestly curious about where people say the line sits... I'm not worried about what people will say lol I'm just curious about what peoples "lines" are when it comes to being REALLY close or calling it an affair lol and thank you for the congrats :) I'm SO excited!! We've been on and off since I was 16 and I'll be 22 in March lol it's about damn time I think :P
