1. Have you ever had a friendship with someone where you secretly (or not so secretly) desired them?
YES, MOST DEFINITELY!
2. Are you prone to jealousy, suspicion or insecurity when your partner spends time with an attractive close friend without you? Why?
I WOULD SAY SUSPICION BUT GOING INTO WHY LEADS TO A LOT MORE QUESTIONS AND I DON’T HAVE THAT KIND OF TIME.
3. Has a previously platonic friendship ever bloomed into a sexual relationship?
YES. I DON’T REALLY THINK THAT MEN AND WOMEN CAN GENIUNELY BE FRIENDS. I BELIEVE I HAVE WRITTEN A FEW TIMES ABOUT THIS.
4. Have you ever remained close friends with an ex-lover?
I’VE REMAINED FRIENDS WITH EX’S… BUT CLOSE FRIENDS, I WOULDN’T SAY THAT.
Bonus: Have you ever developed feelings for a “friend with benefits”? How did it develop, unfold, resolve?
YES. IT DEVELOPED OUT OF SHEER BOREDOM AND A GAME OF TRUTH OR DARE. IT STARTED WITH A KISS, A SOMEWHAT INNOCENT KISS. THEN WE WERE LOOKING FOR EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO BE ALONE TOGETHER. THEN IT UNFOLDED INTO SKINNY DIPPING, SHOWERS AND EVENTUALLY FUCK SESSIONS. IT WAS CRAZY AND EXCITING BUT STARTED TO SLOW DOWN WHEN WE WERE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE ELSE. THEN IT RESOLVED WHEN I MOVED AWAY. HE AND I STILL SEE EACH OTHER RANDOMLY AND I WOULD SAY WE ARE FRIENDS BUT NOT CLOSE FRIENDS.
After posting this I realized that I read the question wrong and rather than rewriting it, I'll add to it. I thought the question was have I ever had a friends with benefits, I didn't realize that it said had I developed feelings for that friend. So, to answer that part...
I didn't develop feelings in the way that I wanted to be with him. But, I did enjoy our time together and therefore developed a feeling of a close friendship with him. Definitely not the kind where I wanted him romantically.
