do romantic relationships start off as friendships?
Most Helpful Girl
Not all the time, but I think the best ones do. Plus, you don't necessarily have to waste time going through the motions of "dating" because you already know each other's quirks.
The only downside is that the "friendzone" could be a possibility, but as long as there's flirting and joking and some sort of sexual tension (even slight) between a girl friend, then there's likely no need to worry about the friendzone anyway.1
