Transition from friends with benefits to dating

It does take considerable time to answer your questions thoughtfully and thoroughly.

And yes, there are real guys behind the scenes discussing the questions, and responding.

We have a serious backlog, but we are working hard at answering them as quickly as possible. Anyone that DONATES to THE GUYS will be moved to the top of the queue, which means we will answer your question within 2-3 days.

It is also worth noting that since your question was phrased in a heteronormative way, the research summarized in this article reflects that which is true for male/female pairs.
