I'd like hear some stories/thoughts about friendships turning into something more. Have you ever been in a relationship that started out with the two of you being friends first? How did it go?

Oh sure, happens all the time. I've done conversion twice, and I have to say, looks and sexual attraction have A LOT to do with making it happen. I only succeeded at it when I was in the best shape of my life, after I had gotten fit and gotten through my fat phase. Girls won't risk a friendship unless a guy gets her pussy wet, so the fat guys and nerdy guys don't have much of a chance to escape the friend zone.
Both relationships went really well. We already knew and liked each other, so we had rapport and chemistry. The only difference was the addition of sex to the mix. Win-win! I was happy in both relationships and really sad when the second ended.
The key to making it happen is having the strength of will and steadiness to navigate the conversion, because most girls will balk pretty hard at first. I learned after two failures when I was younger that the guy has to be 100% assured of his desire to be with her and project that to her with total confidence. Usually the girl will be unsure even if she knows it's right, but a strong, steady presence from the guy will reassure her and sooth many of her worries. Needy or unconfident guys can never, ever make this work.0

Yes, absolutely. We met when he was six and I was five, he got dropped off at my preschool / daycare after school. He didn't want to play anything the first day or two, we started out playing with a ball kicking it around which became our game every afternoon for a while. We soon became friends, then somewhere along the way best friends. He lived just a couple of houses down the street. So he became friends with both my brothers too, but he was always my best friend, we told each other everything, we've never had any secrets between each other.
I kind of always had a crush on the boy at one time or other growing up, nearly from the start of our friendship. Shortly after meeting I grabbed him, stole a big sloppy kiss then told him I was going to marry him! I remember he was less than impressed, I laid claim on his heart that day with out really knowing it.
Our love for the other just grew slowly, until one day in my freshman year I went to my Mom bawling my eyes out. I realized I loved him so much it almost hurt, I was really afraid of losing my best friend to another girl who would never understand our best friendship. My Mom just told me, "You know he loves you the same way too!" More tears!! Mom then reminded me that I couldn't date him until I turned sixteen, the rule for both my brothers and I. She told me that I could still love him without dating.
On my sixteenth birthday he asked me to a movie and a bite to eat after, we soon shared our first romantic kiss (magical), held hands in public and soon everyone knew I was his and he was mine! Not that our friends didn't already know, I think the two of us were the last to know. Sex wasn't supposed to enter into our relationship until when and if we got married. Well once we decided we were definitely getting married, it just became too easy to just say yes instead of let's wait, (it was worth it). = }
We were apart except for almost every weekend last year, he started university while I finished up with high school and community college graduating with my H. S. Diploma and Associates Degree just as he had done the previous year. We got married this summer on July 11th, we couldn't stand to be apart knowing we'd be married sooner or later, so we chose sooner. This year we're both working on Bachelor's Degrees, being newlyweds and happy beyond words!
To answer your question, our relationship just grew closer to where the line blurred between best friend and lover. We ended up being both!!!1
