    Tread very carefully, if it doesnt work out you can risk losing your best friend.

    It will work out :) ....But just make sure you take it one day at a time. I ended up with my bestfriend for 3 years... We no longer are together but I think if you know it may work then it will work. Most of the best marriages are those who were bestfriend..hence my parents and they have a great marriage going on 25 years on Valentine's day! :)

    I think it's vital that you be best friends with your boyfriend. Some might disagree but if you can't just hang out with them, talk and argue, what are you basing the relationship on? Ultimately, it's not what we think that matters! Do YOU have the hots for him? If not, don't go for it. It's hard, if not impossible, to force that kind of feeling.
  • I have been married to my best friend/high school sweetheart for almost 17 years!! Do you love spending time with him? Do you miss him when he's not around? Do you get jealous if he is out with another woman? If the answers are yes you might have more than "friend" feelings for him also! Being best friends is a great way to start a relationship!! (as far as I'm concerned).

    Do it honey. If he really is a great friend you'll be stupid happy. Trust me. A significant other is supposed to be your best friend anyway, so you're halfway there already.

    Well, let me give you my two cents worth.
    I also am in a very platonic relationship with my best friend. He is 4 years younger than I am, but that does not matter to either of us. He considers me to be his BEST friend, and he is mine. We do everything together, movies, drinks, dinner. He is very charming and I've often thought what would happen if our relationship went to the next level.

    It wouldn't work, I would expect things to be different. Things that generally don't bother me, I think would if we were more intimate. We have a great time together, because we expect nothing from one another. It just works well this way.

    I hope you make the RIGHT choices for you.....

    my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years and i started out as best friends :):)
    it's sooo much better that way, since you know everything about them and you're used to each other.

    i say go for it! and good luck! :D

    I married my best friend and we have been married over 4 years. We still have an AWESOME relationship; even better than when we were just friends!
  • I just married my best friend in June. But it was after 10 years total of knowing each other but we dated for 3 of the 10 years. Just take it slow!

    I think thats fantastic. I think everybody should be best friend first before they are in a relationship. You go girl.
