Doesn't it make sense to date Ur best friend if they are the opposite gender? You already get along and have a good connection. Why would you go out with someone you barely know but are Attracted to? I don't get it.

Humans love the unattainable and often what makes sense, is not what happens. More common in modern times we often run around chasing the challenge or adventure rather than settling for the sure thing. Taking a risk comes with a certain rush of excitement, the gambler in all of us adores the unknown and unpredictable :) It keeps life interesting whereas being with someone that is part of a routine might seem rather dull in comparison!
It is not a matter of attraction or being compatible with one another! It's odd, bizarre and nonsensical but that's life.
As for the "friend zone" folks are mentioning, I think that is a load of crock! There is not magical zone of friendship. It is about attraction and has nothing to do with a prior friendship. If two friends are attractive then things might just happen at sometime in the friendship. If said friend is more of an ugly duckling then well... Hey, it has to do with attraction, not "the friend zone"
I've dabbled with friends and the friendship has never been ruined. As we mature, sexual relationships become more commonplace and if it does not work out then we tend to revert back to what DID work, in the regular friendship. Losing the former friendship is a matter of choice on both sides and can be avoided with a dash of maturity thrown into the mix.0
