I have...and it sucked -_-. Everything was fine at first but then us hanging out started to become super awkward.

Not a good idea. Things sour out afterwards. Been there, did that, he never cared. Not worth it.

Yes of course it can happen. I dated my best friend at one point and we broke up. We still love each other and care for each other as best friends and even though we broke up we still talk everyday hang out all the time. And are still the best of friends, and we even might try again since we had a lot of problems the first time. So anything is possible

Enjoy how some of these threads persist for years on end... maybe I've commented here, maybe not.

Yes, anyone can love another. There's no difference between in love and love, except the puppy love feelings. Anyway, it's fine to love anyone. Don't understand the hangup people get over loving more than one person, makes no sense. Love my kids, love my family, love my wife, so if I love my best friend - who cares? I dated my best friend once, she and I moved on and we still talk. She's going to move to Florida to be with her boyfriend who got transferred there. Sounds like they're getting serious. Anyway... loving another is always okay, hating isn't.

I find that every couple goes through that awkward stage, the challenge is to see if you love each other enough to move past it.

Absolutely. We have been married for two years now after being best friends for over five.

I completely agree u both know each other so the challenge is if u can move on from the friendship and make it work.

'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem In Memoriam:27, 1850


This pretty much sums it up, would you rather keep the friend and always have that wonder of what could have been nagging at the back of your mind? Or would you rather take the risk of altering your relationship, which would happen regardless of the response good or bad, to find out how they feel about you.

my uncle told me that guys and girls cant really be friends because one eventually develops feelings for the other. and my neighbor told me that 40% of your guy friends will think of you as just a friend but 60% will be secretly in love with you.

Of course :)

Tastes always change, and besides that there's other factors that come into play.
It might just be random, or maybe you just realized something about your friend or about yourself that made you fall in love.

Sometimes that happens. I fell in love with the first best friend I had, and while it was mutual, I massively screwed things up back then, and I lost touch with her completely. We'd known each other for seven years by that point, and I learned some difficult lessons from the experience. In my defense, I wasn't expecting to fall for her, much less that it would be mutual, but I also wasn't very in touch with my emotions back then.

I've known my best friend for literally 20 years, and we've never dated each other, much less done anything crossing the line past the boundaries of friendship. I wouldn't trade that amazing dynamic for the world, though. Love between close people doesn't always have to be romantic in nature. It takes the form that suits them best; and depending on the people, it can withstand the various dramas caused by many of their other relationships.

As I've often said of us in the past, "The best way I can describe our relationship is similar to that of Picard and Guinan (of Star Trek) - minus the baldness and silly hats."
Her retort: "But I LIKE silly hats!"

it could happen since most best friends have a lot in common.
