Dating your best friend
That said, it’s this very type of evolution that allows you to start dating your best friend in the first place!
I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes.Even when you’re not deliberately trying to annoy each other, friends (like siblings) can’t resist getting under each other’s skin from time to time.It certainly doesn’t mean you can’t or won’t have a long and fruitful relationship.“I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out.I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich.You both probably already do all of the things that make you happy anyway – whether it’s going out for drinks, or catching a movie, or just chilling at home, you’re already accustomed to having fun together.
It’s just that, up to this point, you haven’t been calling them ‘dates’.
Forgive them if they don’t know every last detail of how it went wrong last time – they’re your friend (and new partner) not super-human, and no-one will remember as well as you do!
Be encouraged that your best friend helped you through those times at all, and that you’re both in a much better place now.
Be warned though: Courtship is a special time for every couple – it’s when you make many of the memories that’ll last the entire life of your romance.
Take too many shortcuts and you’ll miss out on this vital stage of the relationship; simply, take the time to go on proper dates and learn to love each other in this brand new light!
At least this won’t be the case if you begin dating your best friend.
