At least that's what I believe. In my opinion, you won't know if you're compatible to be romantic if you guys don't have that friendship foundation first.
I had an exboyfriend who believed the total opposite. He didn't think it was right or would work out if friends got into a more intimate relationship because it would ruin things and you can't get that friendship back.
In a way i agree with him because i have dated some of my best guy friends and it ended miserably... we ended hating each other's guts. But then i told him that if you and that friend are meant to be, it's inevitable of u two coming together. I know this because that's what happened with me and my current Boo. We started off as close friends... then for some crazy reason, we ended up getting closer and more attached to each other, so we adopted each other as siblings... then we just kept getting closer and more personal and we finally had to realize that we loved each other more than sibs should have, so we got together. That was in March 2015 and we're still very much in love and going strong.
So what's u all's opinion on friendship being the foundation of love? Should u date ur best friend or leave it alone?

Yep. I want my boyfriend (when I stop being afraid to get one) to be my best friend... or at least one of them. I want to have the same friendship with him as I do my actual best friend (he's a guy and we are super close). Lol, I don't want my actual bff, but when I get a boyfriend I want to have the same kind of relationship as I do my bff. You should date your best friend. Take a risk. It might just be totally worth it. I don't want to be so intimate with someone I barely know. Been there, done that and it wasn't a very good relationship. Friends first and lovers later. :)2
