I’m talking about actually dating a friend, complete with nice dinners, cuddling on the couch and bringing him or her to your bedroom.
One of the most obvious but nonetheless important reasons not to date within your circle of friends is realizing that there is no potential of splitting up your friends group if you don’t look there in the first place.
This is a good data point for whether or not you think the two of you are compatible.
Don't talk sh*t to your friends or roll your eyes when your ex walks in.
It does mean that some of that fun dating discovery process isn’t in the mix, but it’s nice to start something with someone you already know well.
But you never know what someone is like in a relationship until you’re in one I lucked out: My bestie and I were romantically compatible from the start. You know how just because you love your friends deeply, some of them might not make the best roommates? Even if you’ve been close for a while, dating is a new dimension, and it can really complicate things.
I am a newlywed, and it took me and my bestie 6 years to figure out what everyone else already saw coming. It’s an amazing adventure You’ve already been friends for so many years, you know everything about them, except what it’s like to be their guy or gal!
You’ve already seen each other at your best—and worst Having lived alongside your friends for a while, you’ve seen how they are in relationships.
