Best friends and dating
Things just kept getting in the way, but you never dismissed the idea of being with them.5.
You've already made a reservation for you and your best friend. Then they were into you, but maybe you found someone else, or moved away for college.
Plus, you already love spending time with each other. Maybe it just says the right person hasn't come along yet, or maybe that right person is already there. They're the first one you call when you need help ... If your best friend trumps your serious boyfriend or girlfriend, that says a lot. You've put off finding a significant other just because your best friend fulfills so many aspects of it already.
At that point, though, you just need to start dating. If you've ended serious relationships because you refused to give up your best friend in any capacity, that says a lot. They always know how to cheer you up when you're down.
Therefore, your relationship has a much greater chance of going the distance. Maybe they want to get married by the time they are thirty and have three kids.
Or maybe they are eager to receive four job promotions before they consider settling down.
There was a time when you were into them, but they were with someone.
But it's nice to know that if you did start dating your best friend, they'll just slide right into family gatherings and skip right past the awkward "meet my family" stage. You've thought about dating them before, then they thought of dating you, but things never lined up right.
Let’s face it, meeting singles in day-to-day life is otherwise pretty hard.
Yes, there are pitfalls – high expectations and the fear of ruining what you have among them – but if you go into it with your eyes open, who’s to say it won’t work out?
Dating needn’t be difficult – especially when you have a shot at finding fellow singles with whom you might have a deeper connection.
If you’re lucky enough to even have the possibility of dating a friend, is it something you should consider?
Dating your best friend can turn your most significant friendship into something really special.
