Should you stay friends after dating?

When I was single and looking to meet someone, I was clear in my head that I wanted to get married. I wasn’t into dating just for the sake of it, and I would have let anyone that I was interested in or that was interested in me, know, before things got serious.

Then Covid happened and everything changed. I had to cancel some plans and manage my expectations for the year as things were no longer in my control.
