Dating your best friend

The problem with dating a friend though, is that it’s difficult to remain ‘just friends’ once you’ve crossed that line.We were spending more time together, developing strong feelings and realised we could call it whatever we wanted – friendship, casual dating, friends with benefits etc – but the truth is, it was a romantic relationship unfolding. We have been romantically involved for eight years and married for five.

My fiancee was my best friend for a couple of years before we started dating.

It was purely friendship, until one day I told her that I’d like to be ‘more than just a friend’ and to take her out on a date.

Things evolved and we started dating, but neither one of us wanted a relationship.

We were adamant that we didn’t want anything serious and wanted to remain friends.

You won't have to struggle to find conversation starters or suffer through small talk.
