[Read: 20 unmistakable signs your friend is crushing on you too] The cons of dating your best friend Before you take the plunge and pursue a romantic relationship with your best friend, take a moment to consider the following drawbacks. It’s always the number one concern when anyone considers dating a friend: what if it doesn’t last?
If you break up, you might have to accept that your friendship might be lost forever.
The good news about dating your best friend is that the awkwardness has already been dealt with, and you can simply enjoy the excitement of taking your relationship to the next level. Not only will you already have a solid emotional bond, but you most likely have a shared history.
