WHY DO WE HAVE TO ALWAYS LOOK FOR SOMEONE BETTER? SMARTER? SOMEONE MORE ATTRACTIVE? WHY CAN WE SHARE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING WITH OUR BEST FRIEND BUT NOT IMAGINE SHARING OUR LIVES TOGETHER? It is exactly what they say, “Sometimes the person you love is right under your nose, and you just don’t realize it.” I have seen many patch-ups’ and breakups’ throughout my life. And you know what was common in all of them? They all turned to their Best Friends when in distress. Let’s just accept the fact that we can think of even going through a BAD-Breakup but we cannot, ever, think of losing our Best Friends. They are like the ultimate solace to our troubled-heart. Life is nearly impossible without them. Yet, when it comes to falling in love with our best friend, we are never sure. What is it that troubles us? It’s true if your best friend doesn’t feel the same way, it can make things awkward and you might end up losing the only “real friendship” you’ve known your whole life. But think how amazing it will be if the feeling is mutual? Thebreakupcafe brings you an interesting and very relatable post defining the ultimate question, can best friends become lovers?
Is it worth the risk – Can Best Friends become Lovers?
Besides, being friends, what is even more intricately amazing– a girl and a boy’s complicated “best-friendship”!! I think there’s not a single person in this world who won’t relate to this. We all, at least for once, have faced this confused state of emotional turmoil in our lives, where we didn’t realize when the line of “just friendship” was crossed. And thereafter, things got weird. And you got all strange, confused feelings like –
Is it Ok to Date Your Best Friend?
The most intriguing feeling of all that strikes me–
I don’t know why it is so difficult for people to accept their best friends as their love interests? Is it insecurity? That we might lose our friendship if anything goes wrong. Or is it always the Bad Guys or Mysterious Girls that attract us more?
Whatever be the reason, it cannot be good enough to not think of your best friend as someone you love. As someone who could take care of you for a lifetime! Aren’t they doing that for you already? There’s absolutely no one in this world who knows you better than that best friend of yours. And if you are feeling jealous of he/she being with someone else and not you – it’s because you are letting that happen. My point is DO NOT let that happen. If you already know in your heart that you feel something, anything, then, just seize the moment my friend and make him/her yours. For Life doesn’t wait. And he/she won’t wait too. And you will miss on something that could have been utterly magical.
From Friendship to Romance – Why Best Friends make the best couples?
Well, there countless reasons why they would make the best partners in life. In fact, it’s hard to not fall for your best friend. They are the one who protects us, loves us despite our flaws, and they are ones who would do anything to make us happy.
They can just look at us and know how we feel. All it takes is one glance. Not everyone in our has that kind of understanding.
And most importantly, being stupid is totally allowed. You both have been friends for a reason. You both are into weird stuff. You like the same things as them and have always accompanied each other in doing fun stuff.
Hence, a relationship beyond friendship between you two is only going to be an improved version of your friendship.
You are not shy about them and it’s not like you have to take time opening up to them. You can say whatever you want, dress up however you want and just be yourself. There is no awkwardness. And no judging at all.
How can you stop yourself from falling in love with them?
Best Relationship starts with Friendship –
Yes!! Couples who are best friends- share a great deal of happiness with each other through thick and thin!
So my friend, my only suggestion to all the boys and girls who think they are in love with their best friends and are confused about their move – “It is always not right to run after what you love. But sometimes, it is wise to choose what’s good for you!” And if you have to choose between two, choose the one who is a better friend to you. Because that person will never want to change you in any way to love you. Because that person already knows every worst side of yours and still, chooses to love you!
So, go grab him/her and pour your heart in front of them. If you are scared of being in love with your best friend and confessing your love to him/her as it might ruin your friendship, don’t be! This relationship could change your life and it’ so much worth any risks. So to answer – Can Best Friends become Lovers – just know that it can indeed be the best thing you might experience in your lifetime.
