We have all had secret crushes on our best friends (of the same or opposite sex, doesn’t really matter) at some point in our lives. While many may not think of it as ‘˜that’ interesting, it does have its own advantages. Think Monica and Chandler from Friends or your two college mates who got together to write a love story full of ups and downs.

Here’s why dating your best friend is a good idea.
You know all their stories:
Before he/she became the smoking hot person that he/she is, you know how goofy and clumsy he/she was. From their record of dating terrible people to scoring just grace marks to move on to the next class…from their atrocious fashion sense to all the people they have had a crush on, you practically know their stories inside out. When you’re dating someone like this, you will not wake up to surprises. You’ll only yawn loudly and say, ‘yep, I know that…yeah, the other one too…’
Your friends won’t abandon you:
It happens, accept it. When you start dating someone new, your friends start abandoning you because they find it difficult to bond with your partner. That’s so not going to happen when your partner is, well, your best friend. Your gang is going to totally approve of him/her and you will be able to hang out with all without feeling awkward. Win.Win
You fight and make up in a jiffy:
Because you have been friends for so long, you know how to make up after a fight. You know how he/she actually is and what it takes to calm her/him down. Even if you constantly disagree on a host of things, you will be able to let go of it all in a jiffy. Because…well, it’s your best friend, after all! And your friends are there to act as middle agents if things ever go out of hands. Since they’re friends with both of you, they will be able to give better advice.
Conversations, conversations and more…
Have you noticed that you have plenty to talk to him/her about? Even if you have just been chatting/YoTurfing/WhatsApping with each other the whole day, you come back home and start yapping. Not because you’re a woman…it’s because you do have so many things to discuss with each other. It’s the ideal life, really.
You can’t live without them:
Let’s face it, okay? Your best friend is your life. You have slept at his/her house more than yours. You know his/her family members like your own and simply love hanging out with them. Why not take it a step ahead and make them YOUR family? Sounds like a plan, eh? Since they have seen your best and worst too, they won’t be shocked to find you part of their family. Since he/she is your best friend, you can expect a large turnout at the wedding as well (!) That’s the way to be, no?
While love is never found, it finds you…it’s okay to take a GOOD look at your best friend today. May be she/he is the one who was so lacking in your life. May be dating them would turn out to be the best part of being friends with them. If you do have a friend you can’t live without, try imagining living the rest your life with them…
