It could be totally different situation for Nave especially if he can "truly" just be friends.
But in my experience trying to be friends with someone, who you had feelings for and they didn't feel the same way, and there was a distance afterwards and then meeting up later and you're still single and no other prospects? Just seems to be picking up right where you left off.
And then say Nave becomes friends with her again and they spend time together, is it really that easy to say....well I can't afford to develop feelings for her.
Well you know how you can NOT develop feelings for her? By not being around her OR having someone else.
Also, since having girlfriends the one group I really don't want to see: girls who friend zone me. To me the friend zone is never really a friendship to begin is. It's very shallow, and the way I know girls I date, despite not having necessarily long drawn out discussions with all of them, I feel like I know them so much better.
