Dating after being best friends
If not, you might have to find yourself a whole new group of friends.
Once you get past the initial awkwardness of transitioning from friends to more than friends, everything should be smooth sailing, right? If you have decided that romance might just be on the cards for you and your best friend, it is important to proceed with care. If you play your cards right, you might have yourself a future life partner.
If you’re hoping to go the distance with your best friend, you’ll already know if your future aspirations align, which will allow you to prepare for the possible path ahead. There’s nothing more awkward – or in some cases, upsetting – than discussing your partner’s dating history.
But, you’ve most likely had that discussion with your best friend without the implications of being in a relationship. Perhaps they’ve cheated in the past or have had various relationship issues.
Is there someone else who can fill that role, or could you deal without that someone in your life?
#6 Is there more than just your own friendship on the line?
Truth be told, a casual relationship probably isn’t worth risking your friendship for. Although you’ll bypass the awkward getting-to-know-you stage, missing out on discovering a new person, their personality and their interests could prove to be a little boring for you.
