As I have grown in the dating world I have come to realize that being friends with someone before becoming a couple makes things a lot easier. Taking that time to get to know one another without the pressure of being in a new relationship can make it a more enjoyable experience. After all, who says a person can’t date their friends?
I have dated a few guys since I started dating and the most enjoyable relationship that I’ve had out of all of them is the one where I dated a guy that was once my friend. The two of us started out as friends and we just hung out and learned about each other in time and in normal settings. It wasn’t until later that we decided to start dating and making that transition was easy because we were comfortable with one another.
A relationship that is built off of a friendship can help build and put in place the foundation that a couple needs to have something genuine. Every relationship is built on trust, honesty, and good communication. These attributes are built through friendships and people having the opportunity to be themselves around one another.
There is nothing wrong with dating someone who is a friend, while it can be odd at first it can also be rewarding in that the pair can further develop their friendship through love. The best people to be involved with can sometimes be the people who know a person better than anyone.
