And who knows more about us than just our name and phone number?
Sure, the transition from friend-to-boyfriend might feel a little weird at first, but we think that the benefits of dating one might just overrule the awkwardness.
If you feel like they're checking off a lot of the things on this list already and you don't feel the need to find someone else, then you should either commit to them or cool things down a bit so you can find a fulfilling relationship. You've never tried to set them up with your friends.
This is what separates the "just friends" from the "eh, we're just friends for now." At least once, you've had a few drinks, gazed longingly into each other's eyes, and went at it. You might not realize it consciously, but you'd rather be texting them exciting news than your own SO ... This one sounds cute, but in reality, it's probably not too healthy.
A trustworthy, genuine boyfriend or girlfriend can often become your best friend.
But what if you were already best friends from the start?
Whether or not we make it a priority, we all go through life trying to find “The One.” For some, the search is harder: going on date after date without making a real connection, or suffering through a string of unsuccessful relationships.
But, if taught us anything, it is that sometimes “The One” is right in front of you.
You downplay your insecurities in hope that he won't see you as clingy, and you suppress the fact that you occasionally get moody, jealous, or pointlessly angry.
Why dating your best friend may be your best bet to finding true love.
There's nothing quite like feeling a spark of attraction between you and someone you just met, but lately, we've been wondering whether it's better to date a friend, or at least somebody we've known longer than just a couple of weeks.
After a particularly bad breakup, I was re-evaluating my past choices in boyfriends and felt like I was missing something.
In the midst of dramatically labeling the entire male race as untrustworthy and deceitful, my thoughts turned to who I could trust.
There was a time when you were into them, but they were with someone.
