Sure, any partner could make you happy by showing up with flowers or taking you out for a nice meal, but it can take a while for someone to learn what truly makes you smile.
The number one reason for friends deciding not to date is that they don’t want to ruin their friendship, which is certainly understandable. ‘Best friend’ status is no easy-won thing – of all the people who can make you laugh, or cheer you up when you’re blue, this person is the best!
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.
