    Can your best friend make a good girlfriend or is it wise to let her remain in the friend zone?

    They can make the best girlfriends -but both of you have to be willing to continue communicating and doing what you did to make the friendship work-that is the only way the relationship will work -but it can work - and make sure you both want the same things in the end because if not the relationship may not work and you may lose your friend as well.

    This is how great relationships begin. You want your girlfriend, your lover, your soulmate, etc. to also be your best friend. Plus, it has a much better chance of lasting because you already know one another very well and accept one another just the way you are.

    Why can't become your girlfriend?
    Why wait for someone to snatch her from you when you already have affections for her?
    Take what belongs to you when affections have set in!

    In all honesty the people that we place in the "friend zone" usually have most the qualities we say we want in a mate. The primary reason we put them in the "friend zone" is because we were not physically attracted to them.
    Generally speaking if you think someone is "hot" you are not going to risk blowing an opportunity to explore romantic possibilities.
    Having said that just because when you saw them you didn't think she or he could be "the one" doesn't mean it's impossible to "notice" they have many of the qualities you're looking for in a mate. The problem is determining who put whom in the "friend zone".  There is always a chance that (they) never had a romantic interest in you.
    The reality is our mate or significant other has a better chance of also becoming our best friend rather than for our (platonic sibling like friendship) evolving into a passionate romance. Even if everything looks great on paper it's difficult to suddenly see a true bother/sister like "friend" becoming the love of one's life.

    Friendship should be the core of a relationship as this is the one that last not physical attraction.

    You two should need to talk about it.  Going in to a relationship is indeed a risk both of your should take.

    Your best friend can definitely be your girlfriend. Anyways if you have any other girl as your girlfriend then she will be your best friend because she has to know you perfectly. So, it is better if your best friend be your girlfriend.

    Yes they can but there s a gamble involved because once you go to the lover stage it can be nearly impossible to return to being just friends. So you may gain a great love but you also might lose everything.

    I'm just thinking... you are asking this questions because you either are starting to want your best friend or know somebody who does. I would go for it. The worst thing that can happen is that you end up with just being friends in the end. The best thing that can happen is that a ring is put on the finger and what comes after that. You are a young and very intelligent man. I think that you can figure it out past this.
