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?

Here is what I have figured out: You can take the hottest man on the planet and the hottest woman on the planet, and give them kama sutra lessons so that they are the most amazing lovers on the planet, and they will get tired of fucking each other within a year or two tops, and their relationship will become sexless. This is why it is important to have a little something called COMMON INTERESTS that you can both enjoy together because sex is a terribly weak foundation for a relationship.4

Funny I was best friends with my boyfriend before we started dating back when I was like 16 17 ish we were both in relationships at the time too. Really good friends and when our relationships didn't work out we started hanging out more and got really close. It will be 8 years at the end of the month. So yes I highly agree with what your saying. I'd rather be dating my best friend someone I know will have my back who I trust and who I can be my self out front of.8
