As a kid growing, I've always been told that men and women can not be best friends because feelings would eventually develop. Once these feelings develop it's hard to suppress them. If we really think about it, the perfect mate for us is our best friend. There is a reason why people become best friends;there are lot in common between the two individuals. In a perfect world everyone would be in relationship with their best friend; unfortunately, this world is not perfect...Anyways, I think I might be falling for my best friend. The thing is I'm not exactly sure if my feelings are real because sometimes I would picture her as this angelic figure and other times I could care less about her. It's weird how the mind works. When we have our eyes on someone, we tend to believe that every action that our crush makes suggests to us that they might be feeling the same way when in reality they're just being nice. That is the problem with having a crush on your best friend. I don't know if she likes me, but I figure if she likes me she'll tell me. She was the one person who comforted me when my girlfriend broke up with me. Maybe that's the reason why i like her, because she was there for me in my time of need. Girls always tell me that they would never date their best friend because they don't want to ruin the friendship. But to me, that is whole bunch of nonsense. Why would anyone not want to date someone who shares similar interests as them and is there for them through thick and thin. Whenever we imagine the perfect person for us, we picture someone that have similar qualities as our best friend. Oddly enough we don't ever picture our best friend as the ideal mate. This girl that I consider bestfriend is perfect in every way, yet I just don't know how to tell her that I have feelings for her. The feelings that I have for her is not as strong as it should be, because of the fact that I still have feelings for my ex and I have a crush on a co worker of mines... I don't know, love is so confusing. Anyways, I just wanted to know why most people don't date their best friend.
