any thing, every thing is possible. relation has no end points.
Technicially it's possible but rarely does it happen. If someone deems you to be "relationship material" they will not want to risk losing you to someone else by insisting on building a "friendship" first. If you were physically attracted to someone and felt a strong chemistry with them you would think of them in (romatic terms) and not as a "platonic friend" who may one day become a lover....etc
It is far easier for your lover/mate or spouse to become your best friend than it is for a best friend to become a lover/mate or spouse. In fact in most happy marriages the couple considers themselves to be each other's best friends.
Yes, as I experienced that type progression in a relationship in my past. We started out as friends and then began dating. It only lasted a year, but the friendship to not last afterwards.
I know of one example. My cousin was the boss, and he hired his future wife as his secretary associate. They had never known each other before, but a friendship did develop between them. Finally, after five years of being friends / professional colleagues, they began dating. Things went so well that they married and now have three children. So yes, it can happen.
Yes, absolutely! I've done it with practically all my friends up to now, and always within a very, very short period of time. The reverse is tricky, though.
Yes, I think it can work and when it does, it must be wonderful. My daughter experienced the reverse and it hurt her deeply. She had a best friend in high school, they were inseparable. They got together romantically and went out for a few months and then he broke up with her.
She was devastated because she not only lost her boyfriend but also her best friend--they were never able to fully recover the friendship.
It is very possible...FRIENDSHIP is a very good foundation for a LOVE relationship.
For that lucky guy's sake, I sure hope so!
Yes, it is very possible and you already know this because you can so easily see yourself loving him.
The concern you feel is because of the other obvious truth. Once friends become lovers they can never go back to that same friendship if it doesn't work out as lovers.
Yeah it is, the opposite is also true though as lovers can become good friends. At the minute my best friend is my former partner and I've fallen for her again recently but won't tell her, it makes things awkward.
Definatly Yes. People who are friends before they are lovers, then to be the best lovers. They become best friends and lovers, and share a wonderful relationship.
I think so and also think those relationships are usually (though not always) more lasting than those that start from physical attraction and only then comes friendship...
It depends on how you are using the term "lover". If you are talking about going from being friends to being in a happy healthy relationship, then yes, it is possible to go from friends to lovers. The best relationships consist of two people who either start out as best friends or become best friends. If you are using the term "lover" to mean sexual partner, than no, sex ruins friendships no matter how much people would like to deny it. After sleeping together your view of each other will forever change, and no matter what, your "friendship" will never be the same.
Yes, I don't think you can be lovers without being friends. But you can't go back from lovers to just friends.
