I think the person you end up marrying should be your best friend. You have to build a relationship on trust and admiration first, which is often how you feel about your best friend.


Good luck with that... More likely that we'll all end up "sleeping with the enemy."



Well, I'm engaged to my best friend. Your mileage may vary. Life changes a lot when you're past your 20s. Life experience is great.

we both have the same incredibly negative opinion of marriage so that's not happening anytime soon

Personally, I think this is the ideal set up. At least you know you can communicate with the other person well and they know you and you know them including most of their secrets and fears. Removes a lot of barriers when sorting through issues. I unfortunately dont have a female best friend anymore (moved away when we started college) or id prob have married her a long time ago. Like around 22-24 instead if being the perpetual bachelor.

If you're happy I'm happy. Best wishes

That's actually really sweet and touching. Personally, if your feelings continue like this, I think you should tell her how you feel. Even if you get rejected, it's still better to have them out. Then, the other person will tell you how they honestly feel, and you can move on with your life and find someone else.


It's...Well...

I would totally do it, and I've told my self I'd do it...some day...
It's just, I can't deal with rejection. Specially if she rejected me or friend zoned me.
My hear would be shattered, I would be feeling terrible for days.

I know that's all negativity, I should stay positive if I'm going to do this.

What you said though, I might just do that. Tell her how I feel...If she says no, then I will just move on.
Heartbroken and feeling empty. Or happy and filled with joy...
It's all part of life. I'll move one.

Thanks for the friendly advice


Alright, best of luck to you! (:

I'm fairly certain my best friend is in love with me, and personally I don't blame him; unfortunately, I am 1) Married 2) Straight 3) Too damn good for his jive ass.

I've hardly ever had any really close friends, let alone guy friends. So I've yet to experience it. I will say though that I have been told that one of my guy friends did have a small crush on me, but it didn't last long and he moved on. We never dated and he didn't tell me, so it wasn't a major thing.

No. Then again, I'm 14, so I don't think of marriage yet.

As my friend once said, "here is the cycle of relationships: Strangers - Friends - BFF - Couple - Complete stranger again/ friend in the friendzone (if you break up)" So I guess BFFs would marry if they like each other enough. *shrug*

Well, considering the fact that I'm straight and my best friend is the same sex I am, I don't think that's gonna happen. Also, gay marriage is illegal in my state

I wouldn't mind spending my life with my best friend, though (living together and all that).

Maybe if I had one

I dated a best friend way back in the day and I was a bitch to him but he was a great boyfriend.
I would totally marry him if he was still the same guy. But he changed a LOT. We don't talk anymore.

I agree with the notion the person you marry should be your best friend anyways... or at least one of them.
