Friends have common interests. Or at least you have a things to do together. Things that kept you guys as friends. But will damage friendship if dating didn't work.
Strangers have less repercussions. But possibly nothing else other than physical attraction to work on. Maybe hard to relate to, or to connect.
Or, only date strangers whom you manage to make into your friend. But escaping from friend zone?
Which would you choose? I'd choose route 3.

If I want to date her, SHE IS NOT MY FRIEND. I don't have that kind of feelings toward friends. Not necessarily an stranger, but certainly not a friend. That's not friendship.0
