Some people can tend to fall for close friends or people they've known for a long time.
There are many things people have said to me about this. Some say, if the person in question really is that great of a friend, then you can either date and decide it's a bad idea, or decide not to date each other at all, and you can still be friends with this person without anything being weird or changed. Do you agree? Or do you think that dating a friend can only lead to trouble?
Any stories or comments are welcome and appreciated.
- Yes. If they're that great of a friend, you can always go back to the friendship if it doesn't work out. Dating your friend is a good idea, because you already know they care about you and can be comfortable with you.23% (18)46% (21)32% (39)Vote
- No. Dating a friend is a bad idea. It probably won't work out, and the friendship either won't last, or will be awkward if one of the people involved does not want a relationship.26% (20)17% (8)23% (28)Vote

A lot of people forget to realize that in a lot of relationships, people start out as friends, whether it is for a month or five years!
For me, I've done both, but the relationship I am in right now, which is the best experience I have ever had, is with my best friend. We had known each other for six years, and have been dating for almost three years.
It really just depends on the people and how strong your friendship is.
But remember, it is better to have loved and loss than to never have loved at all!3
