So while a relationship with somebody new often involves a lot of overanalyzing and sending nerve-racking texts, you won't have to play the guessing game this time around.
After exchanging so many stories about sexual encounters you had with other people, you probably never imagined you'd be doing this with each other.
The only difference is that the teasing will probably end with a kiss on the forehead instead of a playful punch in the arm. If you're fighting with him or her, you might have to tap your mom or another friend for advice.
You try not to think about what would happen if this all doesn't work out, but sometimes you do, and sometimes a mighty pang of anxiety comes along with it.
Planning your first dinner "date" will go something like this: "Wanna get pizza from that place we tried that time?
" "Yeah." And you'll probably split the bill, just like you always have.
And you'll feel totally comfortable stuffing your face in front of each other, just like you always have.
It happened right before my eyes: the guy sitting across the table, who I used to text about the really awkward dates I went on, transformed into the person I wanted to be kissing at the end of the night.
But you're comfortable enough to laugh at the fact that, yes, it's happening now, and it feels pretty wild.But after you've been intimate a few times, the giggling will subside, the romance will kick in, and the sex will probably be pretty darn good. At first, you won't be able to get enough of each other.Now you can do the things you've always done as friends and things people do as more than friends.While you'll want to spend the whole day together, there are other people in your life who need your lovin' too, like family and the rest of your buddies. If you've always made fun of his obsession with that one childish video game and he's always picked on you for wearing that "weird" man-repelling top, it's not going to stop now.
When you start to date your best friend, you gain a lot: a protector, undeniable confidence, and a feverish determination to make your relationship work. Read on to find out why taking on the challenge is a tough feat, but at the end of the day, totally worth it.
You don't need to bother trying to read your own best friend's mind because you already know what he or she is about to say.
