Is dating your best friend a good idea
How do you know if you actually have romantic feelings for your closest guy friend, or if you just enjoy his company?In other words: do you like him, or do you like him? It’s easy to want your cute guy friend who makes you laugh harder than anyone to turn into your boyfriend, but remember: a cute guy does not a boyfriend make.He's a guy's guy--he loves to drink beer and watch soccer games; to go to rock concerts and play pick-up football; to attend bachelor parties and stay out late at parties.But he's also a girl's guy, in the sense that he has a lot of patience for talk about the vagaries of love and relationships; he's a compassionate and careful listener, who's also perfectly good at offering up good, juicy stories from his own life; and he even likes to read the Weddings section of The New York Times! For instance, at one point, when I first appeared before the group in my new Baywatch-red bathing suit, I said, "Is it just me, or do I look kind of Baywatch in this get-up? Wrong tits." (I'm not exactly well-endowed in the breast-al area.) I wish I could better describe Jake's hilarity, for the sake of your giggling enjoyment ...We went to a few yard sales (and I got some amazing stuff).
But is the transition from just friends to “in a relationship,” worth the risk?(Kermie Ottawa was there, among others, with his incredibly sweet new-ish girlfriend, a yoga teacher and massage therapist; as soon as she heard about names like Sir Hugo and Sean O'Shaughnessey--not to mention Arlo Pumpernickel--she wanted a pseudonym of her own.) Among the attendees was good ol' Jake Stein.
