It’s that time in our lives where we have to take that crucial decision. It’s natural for you to fall for your best friend or vice versa but deciding to go out with them is the most nerve-wrecking decision you will have to take. A million questions come daunting in your head. What if getting in a relationship might mess your friendship up, if the relationship doesn’t work. Since you know everything about their past, you have insecurities at a whole different level. But it is really up to you how you take this new found love for your best friend. Here is a list of things that will help you understand why giving this a go is a great idea, if you just take everything positively.


Nobody can ever match the comfort level you and your best friend have. They know you in and out, you have embarrassed yourself in front of them a thousand times and they make great memories. You don’t have to go through that awkward phase where you feel weird sharing an embarrassing moment or a not-so-good habit you have.


This is the only relationship where you don’t have to go on explaining about your past. The demons you are always hesitant to show to someone you love. Your best friend is probably someone who not just only knows about this but has also been there through that time. They have probably seen you go into it and come out of it bruised. They know your demons more than you do and they will always be protective of the fact that your past doesn’t come creeping into your present.


You like the same things. Your hangout places are the same All of your friends are the same, you probably think alike as well. What’s better than having your own shadow as a partner? What you’ve seen, they’ve seen. You are saving yourself from compromising on the activities that your partner might not like. You just might not have to give up on anything because, often, your best friend is into it as well.
