They say relationships are always stronger when you are best friends first and a couple second. Dating your best friend could be a great thing. You are comfortable with them and they already know your deep, dark secrets. But dating your best friend is always a gamble. Either you get a fulfilling relationship or things end badly and you lose out on a great friendship too. So, are you willing to take the risk?
Dating your best friend means you two know everything about each other. The good, the bad, the not so great. Sometimes, this could be too much to handle when a friendship turns into a relationship.
But on the other hand, there’s no fuss about fights! If you’ve been best friends then you two know how to sort your fights out too.
You may have great chemistry with him but it still doesn’t stop some amount of awkwardness from creeping in when you get physical. But don’t worry, it will pass.
But no silence is too awkward with him and you don’t have to constantly wrack your brain for something to say.
Do you two have mutual friends? It might affect the group dynamics if you start dating.
Dating your best friend also means that you now have to find someone else to fulfil his previous role. You’ll need somebody to vent to about your relationship issues, right?
Pros of dating your best friend? He’s already seen you at your worst so there’s no need to pretend things are okay when they are not.
And there’s no need to think twice before saying something or being your true self. They already know your quirks anyway.
There’s no need for dating games or overthinking everything. You two can be honest with each other, without inhibitions!
Say goodbye to the jittery meetings with parents! Both your families already know the other is a great person and were probably rooting for this anyway.
