7 Reasons Why You Should Never Date Your Best Friend, Watch Out For Number 7.
Do you think your best friend is a possible husband/wife material and you are considering dating them? Dating your best friend certainly has it pros but I think you also need to consider why this could be a very bad idea.
Below are 6 reasons why you shouldn’t date your partner
1. IT COULD MEAN THE END OF YOUR FRIENDSHIP
You need to understand that the moment you ask your best friend out, your friendship with your best friend would definitely be affected. If you end up dating your best friend, it becomes a good thing but if it doesn’t work out, your relationship with your best friend would never remain the same again. So are you ready to lose that friendship?
2. IT MIGHT NOT BE COMFORTABLE
Your best friend knows everything about you even the most embarrassing things you have done and you might just not be comfortable with that. It’s cool sometimes to date someone who knows a lot about you but it could also be bad too.
3. YOU MISS OUT ON THE EXCITEMENT MYSTERY BRINGS
One of the thrills of starting a new relationship is getting to know stuffs about your partner. When you date your best friend, you miss out on this. That excitement when you discover your partner’s favourite colour or food new partners get would be missed since you already know all this.
4. THINGS WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THE WAY THEY WERE
Just imagine your romantic relationship with your best friend suddenly ends, do you really think things would go back to the way they were? The answer is NO. There is no assurance you can become best friends again if things happen to end on a bitter note and I don’t think you would want that.
5. YOU MISS THE HONEYMOON PHASE
You know the start of relationships are always exciting because you want to impress your new partner. You wanting to buy your partner the best gifts to impress them and wearing your best clothes. When you date your best friend, you don’t do all this because there is no need to impress someone who already knows everything about you.
6. YOU WOULD NEED A NEW BEST FRIEND:
When you date your best friend, it means you might have to look for another best friend and trust me when I say finding one isn’t that easy.
So before you ask your best friend to date, I think you should consider all these stuffs I listed above. If you think you don’t mind, then good luck.
7. SLEEPING TOGETHER CHANGES EVERYTHING.
“Sex changes things and when you date your best friend that friendship changes,” New York–based relationship and etiquette expert of Relationship Advice Forum, April Masini, tells Bustle.
As much as we may not want to admit to it, sex can change everything. Once you’ve seen someone in such an intimate situation, like sex, you never see them quite the same way again. It’s because of this that dating your best friend is such a risk.
While dating and allowing yourself to be vulnerable with someone else is always a risk, when it’s your best friend you have more to lose, far more is at a stake than just the romantic relationship. You’re basically putting all your bets on the table when you date your best friend and when you do that, it’s hard to walk away with everything you started out with when you walked into the room in the first place; it’s one hell of a gamble. That’s also why friends with benefits rarely go back to being just friends.
“If the relationship fails, you’ve lost your best friend and that person is now your ex,” Masini says. “Tread carefully.”
Or tread not at all, if you know what’s good for you.
