I made a diagram for Relationship stages:

Strangers → Friends → Close Friends →
↓ ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ← ╝
Crush → Relationship → Heartbroken → Strangers

It stands for me like that!

You can share your life's or ideal relationship stages :)

Strangers - **** buddies - potential friends/strangers

...

My life has been so fruity so far.

Strangers -> [Time Passing] -> Friends -> Crush -> Unrequited Love -> Separation -> Nickelback songs -> Strangers.

Strangers > Friends > Crush > Potential Relationship

From here, in most cases there are three paths:

Successful relationship > Very Close Friends
Unsuccessful relationship > Strangers, Distant Friends
No Relationship > Good Friends, Close Friends

Of course you've gotta question the risk factor. If this friend is truly your friend, though, then they should stay your friend, even after an unsuccessful relationship. I'm still friends with my ex, but we don't talk often - because she doesn't have the internet. If she did, we might be talking often.

strangers-->aquaintances-->friends-->projected illusions of perfection, solidarity, true aristotlian friendship-->not meeting expectations-->crushing reality-->distant friends-->once upon a time I knew them

a romantic chain of events has not happened yet in my life.

Well, I'd imagine it's different even for the two people who are together. For example, the men I've been with were like :

strangers ---> acquaintances ---> friends ---> attraction ---> breakup,

whereas I'm always more like:

strangers ---> crush ---> love ---> heartbreak and disappointment ---> breakup


Strangers -> [Time Passing] -> Friends -> Crush -> Unrequited Love -> Separation -> Nickelback songs -> Strangers.

^Also this, sans Nickelback songs.
