You both probably already do all of the things that make you happy anyway – whether it’s going out for drinks, or catching a movie, or just chilling at home, you’re already accustomed to having fun together.
It’s just that, up to this point, you haven’t been calling them ‘dates’.
If there’s even a remote possibility that you could be dating your best friend – that you could love them and they could love you in a deeper way – surely it’s worth exploring?
When you’re single, your best friend is already the closest thing you have to a significant other.
Here at Elite Singles, our mission is to help you find people with whom you share a deeper connection.
But what if you already have that special someone in your life?
I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts.
I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes.
Be warned though: You also know how to push each other’s buttons in an argument.
They say there’s a thin line between love and hate, and dating your best friend will teach you how easy it is to find yourself on the wrong side of it!
“Elaine: All right, let’s go, I’ll give you half an hour. Elaine: Jerry, we have to have sex to save the friendship. Well if we have to, we have to.” – Seinfeld It can be scary sometimes heading into a new relationship knowing that you’re carrying a lot of emotional baggage with you.
Letting your guard down when you’ve been hurt before is hardest, and trusting that your new partner will be understanding enough to ‘just get it’ doesn’t always work out. Luckily, they’re already well aware of any emotional baggage, and can take steps to ensure they don’t make the same mistakes your ex-partners might have.
One of the biggest advantages to dating a friend is that they already know your bad habits – and you know theirs!
