Dating your friend’s ex can be tricky. Dating your ex’s friend can be even worse. And dating your friend? Well, that’s a whole other ballgame. But if you’ve ever wondered “what if” when kicking it with your best pal, you’re not alone. After all, there’s a reason you love being around one another so much. And we’re not talking about just any old pal here — this is the person who makes you laugh harder than anyone else and is always on your mind.
If your best friend is the one person who truly gets you, it may be time to consider making it official. Here are 10 pros and cons of dating your best friend.
1. Pro: They’ve already seen you at your worst
The thing about best friends is they know each other inside and out. You’ve argued over politics, religion, and family stuff. You’ve shared your world views and established the points you agree, and disagree, on. So, it’s safe to say your best friend has also seen you at your worst.
This is a bonus for the both of you, considering there will inevitably be disagreements aplenty down the road.
