“Aleeza, I can’t date my friend, I don’t want to mess up the friendship.” I think it can be a great idea. That spark, affinity and care that binds you two together exists between the two of you even before that first date. Your friend has likely seen the real you and you are likely used to being yourself around them. Acceptance of differences, like trust, is what builds the foundation for a solid and lasting relationship. We develop love by giving and friends are used to giving to each other. We usually choose to spend our time with people we do respect. Friends are great at caring about each other, as well as taking good care of one another. On the other hand, I have a client who successfully turned a friend into someone he is dating seriously.
Here are my 9 reasons why you should give it a shot: 1. How nice is it to come into a relationship where you already know each other! Also, if you’re close friends, you have probably seen and heard the good, bad and the ugly about this person..you still like them. It is through giving that we increase our love for one another. Without respect, we can’t look up to someone or build a deeper relationship. It takes time to get to know someone and to learn how to best care for them. You already know that you enjoy hanging out with this person. They have had to make some adjustments in their relationship (like actually dating instead of just “hanging out”).

Many people think that dating a friend is a bad plan. You don’t have to put on any airs; you can just be who you are. Trust is the foundation of a relationship and it’s one of the hardest things to build. And since you’re friends, you’ve already built up a reserve of trust between yourselves. Coming into a new relationship with trust puts your relationship ahead of the game and sets you up for success. And if you’ve still chosen to be friends, then there’s a good chance you’ve accepted each other’s differences to some degree. It is likely you have developed the kernels of love already. Naturally, it took some time to get past the uncomfortable feelings but our friendship was strong enough to weather the storm.

So you’ve started dating your best friend, and it’s weird, wonderful and definitely takes some getting used to. You (hopefully) don’t need to have the ‘are we boyfriend and girlfriend? Things progress pretty quickly You’ve been best friends for ten years, so that’s basically like dating for ten years, right?
And you’ll probably recognise all these signs that it’s really happening… Dating is funny The first time you go on a date, you both just spend the whole time laughing at the situation – why is this dinner different to all the other times you got a pizza, drank some wine and moaned about your job? Your first kiss isn’t awkward Which is a major shock. You don’t have to go through that tricky ‘getting to know each other’ phase Because you already know all each other’s bad habits, you know how to deal with them and you can cut the ‘where do you want to be in five years’ time? ’ conversation Because you wouldn’t have got into this in the first place if you didn’t think it was going somewhere. But you probably will have a ‘will this ruin our friendship? You know all each other’s secrets When someone brings up an ex by mistake, or something embarrassing from your partner’s past, neither of you gets upset – after all, you were the one getting the late-night calls about it when you were just friends. No one will believe you were ever just friends No matter how long you were really just friends for, and no matter how many other serious relationships took place during that time, when you announce you’re together, everyone will think this affair has been secretly going on for years. Your exes will be furious ‘I always knew you liked each other!
