Have you developed feelings for your best friend? That may scare you at first; you're probably worried about all of the common fears, such as, "What if they don't feel the same way and our friendship is ruined?" I'm here to let you know that going out with your best friend is so worth it, and I would never want it any other way.
1. You already know their life story.
When you date someone you were already friends with, you get to skip the boring bits and get to the good stuff. Instead of spending time catching up on each other’s histories, families, what school they went to, you can spend time getting to know who they are now. Who you are together. What they want now and in the future.
2. Knows Your Items (Likes & Dislikes)
Your best friend is a person that knows how to treat you because he or she knows your like and dislike items. A best friend that loved you will make you always happy by giving you favorite items and avoid you from your hate items.
3. Your Best Friend Loves You Just The Way You Are
One of the biggest advantages to dating a friend is that they already know your bad habits – and you know theirs! From chronic untidiness to biting nails to leaving the toilet seat up, the kind of petty deal-breakers that might scupper a burgeoning relationship you’ve already accepted (or gotten used to tolerating) in your best friend.
4. Solve issues amicably
Problems in relationships are inevitable but when you are dating your best friend, somehow the partners manage to solve the issue for fear of ruining their relationship. It wasn’t an easy decision getting intimate in the first place because the probability that you won’t be friends after a breakup is high. This gives the couple extra energy to stay strong and committed to each other.
5. It’s easy to be open: When you are with your best friend, you feel very free. By this, you can communicate very openly with them. You’re very likely to share your deepest fears because there’s nothing that is pulling you back. To a great degree, you will not feel shielded by anything to express yourself.
