well you have to love your best friend or you wouldn't put "best" before friend. I do not suggest falling IN love with them it at all!!
90% of my friends have always been guys. I'm a tomboy... I can't help it!
Once I dated one and it screwed up our friends circle like everyone was our 3rd wheel... and I could no longer hang out with most of them because he would get jealous. This applies to all relationships of course! but it's different when you all used to hang out together. When it ended it took years for us to hang out like friends again!
Being a girl, it's hard to have a normal friendship with guys... and the older I got the more of my guy friends confessed! I learned my lesson and loosing them as a friend is not worth the risk...
The WORST part is that after explaining that we can't take our relationship past friends they become jealous of every guy you spend time with! like "you're gonna date HIM, but not ME!?"
I have lost more friends than I can count on my fingers like this. It always ends with "if I can't be your boyfriend, I can't handle being your friend" My very best friend in high school was a lesbian and even we also crossed this problem... though it was easier to explain since I don't like girls like that. It puts stress on the entire relationship. There is the awkwardness that won't leave after one confesses and the other doesn't feel the same!
I've confessed to my friend and he told me the same thing that I've told others... that if it didn't work out- we'd loose what we have. It is sad seeing that person with someone else and feeling as thought you were not good enough!
>.< karma
Don't mistake joking for flirting, make sure you read deep into the other person's intentions if you want to tell them you're special feelings! if they don't feel the same - things will never be the same.

How to manage platonic love and romantic love is difficult. They are different ways of love. Friends that are close and good friends can always go into more serious ways. It is up to each one to decide if the are going to cross that line or not. Sometimes it may happen without warning or notice. It is a complex thing. If best friends goes into a relationship the picture will be completely different. If it doesn't work out you might lose a good friend. I personally would not mix friends and relationships together.

They can, and they often do.

i wouldnt be surprised. i mean, they already love talking to one another, and being around each other (hence, best friends). what better lover/partner is there than one that you always want to talk to and spend time with? XD

I had known my fiance since I was in 7th grade. I had my first kiss with him then, but parted ways due to me not really caring for having a relationship. I was pretty young. However, each year he always tried to get my attention by confessing to me, but I honestly did not want that from him. So, we would get close and then drift apart for a year or two because I did not want the romantic attention although he was my best friend.

Also, I was into tall, pretty boys. He is more of the manlier kind, rugged, has a beard, lots of body hair, and long curly hair that looked straight out of a Michelangelo painting of cherub angels. Most people said he looked like Jesus and him being part Egyptian and Italian didn't help that either.

Eventually, I gave in to his advances trusting he wouldn't break my heart. He was the only guy I trusted 100% going into a relationship. Although I was not sexually attracted to him at first, I was attracted to his intelligence. Eventually, I started seeing features of him that I hadn't seen before. His long lashes, his big doe eyes, his perfect teeth, and his extreme kindness towards every living thing on this planet. (Even spiders and roaches!) He loves music and plays the guitar like a fiend. He can listen to an entire song for the first time and play it back as if he heard it multiple times.

In the end, falling in love with my best friend was the best thing I could have done. I can't imagine myself without him.
He has told me that you should only marry your best friend and to do otherwise would be a miserable mistake. He also says the only difference between me and his male friends is that he can have sex with me, while he wouldn't even think about making love to any of his friends. LOL
If it never works out, would we have the same relationship? Probably not. But there is no harm in trying. After all, even if it doesn't work out the first time it may work out the second time since people grow, mature, and change.

They could, but I honestly don't think they should, unless they're each others' only friends. I mean, how do you expect to socialize outside of that one friendship? Might as well get married!

And I've witnessed this at least twice looool.

For me I can't see myself falling for my best friend. Because I've have been in a platonc realtionship with him for so long. It would just feel werid to start a romantic realtionship with him. after so many years of friendship.
