    Love comes in a mysterious way even best friend can be your lover. It is through understanding of each other to be drawn together. Possibility of ending up as lover with perfect knowledge of each other through years of togetherness will create stronger bond in life.

    Well based upon being your best firned, the person must be very close to you. They know beforehand your strengths, weaknesses, life, history, and have probably shared many wonderful memories with you. Based upon this, the outlook of being in a relationship with your best friend is seemingly easier, since there is no fear of the unknown, and you generally like or even love this person. Once physical attraction boundaries are broken and you are emotionally and sexually driven to be with that person, it is very easy for them to turn into your lover. I mean, you already know the person, and you can see what a great match they are for you. You can also see how you work out in an interactive sense, so any arguments could be easily handled. So again, yes, it is very easy.
    This is a man speaking from experience. smile

    Easily? No. But over time and hard work on both parts, most definitely. A lot of communication would be the main key I imagine.

    Absolutely, depending upon how much work you both are willing to put into the status change.  If it's something you both want, lots of work doesn't mean it's still not easy.

    As mentioned before, no, not easily. All relationships take thoughtfulness and committment and of course, some amount of risk. And if this is your truly best friend, you don't want to lose the best part of what delights you about each other. However, if you are both drawn together and it's right, it can work beautifully. Especially since it's ideal to marry your best friend. What could be better?

    There is a very thin line between best friendship and the love relationship. Love relation is always 100% successful when the foundation is friendship. The whole thing depends upon the people concern and that to which level they want their relationship to reach. Nothing wrong in it, and even, not difficult to switch over the relationship but both must consent to it. Open talk is required or else the relation is bound to break. If the two are the best friends then respecting each other's view is easily possible and if one fails to respect then the relationship was not a true and best one.

    It is not going to be easy at all, because you guys knows each other so well, the romantic dimension will most often than not be estrange.

    Yes. The fact that you have both been best friends makes the transition easier. You move from friendship to being confidants and gradually metamorphose into a love relationship. You have better understanding and can analyze your strengths and weaknesses. Basically it grows if you both want it to but sometimes, it happens unconsciously. I married my best friend and confidant and we have grown to tolerate ourselves and understand each other better. For me the friendship was a good platform for the growing relationship. So far so good!

    Don't listen to those comments that state it's ganna take a long process.Yeah,maybe for the female friends.Speaking for all men( and i do mean roughly all men),we indeed want to show you the most lovingly love possible between that area there.No joke.Only reason all your male friends are there is to get a piece of the strawberry cake.Even a nibble would do them good.Generally,we men can't think of anything better than laying our best friend big_smile.It's even more exciting when she have a BF.If you're married,some guys like me start to lose hope and move on.Other than that,hey it's fair game and i'll stay close until you have a fight and use that chance to pounce on you any opportunity i get. There is no fair play in this dating game,ALL DOGS WANNA EAT YOUR BISCUIT >:3!!!

    Just make sure you're not about to ruin a really great friendship for something you can find elsewhere. If things don't work out, you will most likely not be able to go back to being best friends... or even friends at all!
    But if you think your best friend could be the one for you, go for it!
