Sometimes, the line between friendship and romance is a little blurry. You spend a lot of time together, you care about each other — but is it actually a good idea to date a friend? On the one hand, you could ruin the friendship, but on the other hand, you already have a strong foundation for something more.
And sometimes, that's a great thing. It's important to remember that the criteria for friendship doesn't always line up to the criteria you have for someone you want to be in a relationship with. Still, if they seem to tick all of the boxes and the chemistry is there, then it may be something to consider. Here's what love experts say you should know before you date a good friend. The first time you go on a "date" or even have sex with someone you've been friends with for a long time, it can feel a little awkward. It may take some time, but if you can't seem to get used to having a romantic dynamic you should pay attention to that.
To try to minimize any hurt feelings — or lost friendships — you want to be really honest about what's going on and how you're feeling, every step of the way. Hopefully, since you are already good friends, you can have a frank and open conversation about expectations. And that also means being aware that your friendship might not ever go quite back to how it was before.
So before you start dating this person, be sure you're willing to take that risk. No matter how much you click as friends, don't expect that to necessarily translate into dating. One of the tough truths about dating a friend is that you may want to convince yourself it's going well — even when it's not. Be prepared to be honest with yourself about how the relationship is going, not how you want it to be going. If it turns out not to be a good fit, you'll probably be in a better position if you cut your losses sooner rather than later.
Dating a friend can be a great experience — and often, that friendship is the perfect foundation for a healthy relationship. But sometimes it can feel awkward and you can realize that your friendship chemistry just isn't the same as romantic chemistry.
So before you date a friend, be aware of the risks — and make sure that you keep the communication flowing, so you can have the best shot at keeping the friendship alive. By Lea Rose Emery.Dating a friend is a bad idea
