The funny thing with friendship lies in the fact that when we ‘friendzone’ people of opposite sex, we unknowingly erase from our minds the possibility of ever dating them. Even though you had the intention at first, the feelings of attraction gradually reduce the more time you spend together.
However, you’ve started seeing a different light in that best pal you’ve always played, talked, shared feelings with and has always seen you as nothing but a friend. You have become strongly attracted to him/ her. Even though you probably never expected it to happen, there doesn’t seem to be any way to fight it.
After all there is always a reason why you love being around one another, so now what? Poppin the proposal. Worried about issues of making it happen, why suffer in silence, here are the reasons why you should consider trying it out.
To be true to our ourselves, some loves are simulated. They are based on what either of the party in it stands to benefit. However, if your best friend agrees to start dating you, it’s most likely because he or she loves you for who you are. No love is sweeter than that which springs out of a mind freely with no conditions attached to it.
You know Each Other Inside Out
You have already seen the worst of each other since best friends are there through the best and worst of times. You’ve argued over politics, religion, and family stuff. You’ve shared your world views and established the points you agree, and disagree, on.
The major aim is to have a successful and fulfilling relationship. This is easily achievable if you know each other’s shortcomings as you can always watch each other’s backs.
No First Date Discomfort
Most of us have had a bad first date. But when you finally decide to call more than just a dinner with your best friend, there’s no need to stress about first date awkwardness. You’re not worried about saying the wrong thing. Though breaking the news to him/ her that you want to be more than just friends can be a bit nerve-wracking, but at least you don’t have to get through that whole awkward getting-to-know-you phase of a relationship. It’s pretty much a win-win.
No Undue jealousy
Jealousy is actually one of the harshest relationship obstacles but with dating your best friend, you will not be threatened with just mere seeing her hugging Lawrence and Peter. There is no jitterly feeling and thinking of dating someone else?
You always got the loyalty of them because you’ve come a long way together and there is that perfect trust that exists between you. Even if you see him or her with other people, you can rest assured he or she isn’t cheating on you.
No wardrobe Stress
There is no need to worry about dressing to impress as it would be when you have a crush on new love interest. With your best friend, you’re typically not too concerned about being able to slip into your skinniest pair of jeans and no thinking twice about donning your favorite pair of comfy sweats and going braless to girls.
Chances are also good that they have already seen you from being dressed to kill for a business meeting to heading out for a night club.
There will be no boredom since you will always have something to talk about. Your relationship with someone other than your friend can become boring when you run out of conversation topics. Continuous conversation has power over couples in a relationship as it brings your hearts together and makes both of you think you can’t survive without the other.
You may already know their family
Meeting the parents of your partner can be a daunting experience. But perhaps, with introducing your best friend as your partner to them won’t as bad as it could be otherwise. You already know and ever met each other’s parents, nieces and nephews!
