What relationship-experts say about dating friends
Are you ready to take a leap of faith?
How do you know if it’s a good plan? First, you need to understand that good friends don’t necessarily make good partners, even if you think they are attractive. We accept certain foibles and quirks with friends, that we might not accept in a relationship. If you truly believe it’s possible to become more than friends, relationship experts think it could work.
The transformation can be quite awkward, but soon you will find out if there is a fire burning between you two. With every step you take it is important to talk to each other about your feelings, what you want and how you think about the relationship. It is possible that one of you is maybe more into the sex while the other one desires a romantic relationship. You have to clarify this in order to create a shared expectation.
If the relationships doesn't last don’t expect your friendship to either. That’s the risk of dating a friend. Same as with other relationship you are never sure if you will keep in touch after the break-up.
