Is it better to date your best friend?
Your Best Friend is Already Very Invested in Your Relationship. The best people wont mess you around – if youre lucky enough to be dating someone who shares your values then theyre unlikely to leave you in the lurch. Be warned though: Dating your best friend is always a risk – but its a risk for both of you.
Why should you not date your best friend?
While dating and allowing yourself to be vulnerable with someone else is always a risk, when its your best friend you have more to lose, far more is at a stake than just the romantic relationship. If the relationship fails, youve lost your best friend and that person is now your ex, Masini says. Tread carefully.
