The questions pretty much asks it all, doesn't it?
I have heard good arguments for and against over the years.
What's your opinion?

I think friends make the best relationships. However, if it doesn't work out then you most likely lost a friend. Unless you have a rare relationship that can overcome a break up.2

I can see how it could be advantageous to date a friend in the sense that you're already very comfortable around each other. I don't know about anyone else here but the whole dating process and scene is so irritating to me. It's okay to be in a relationship but everything that leads up to that sucks. Being able to skip that step is a HUGE plus to me.
Everyone's fear is losing a friend and a partner if it turns south. I can see how that would suck but I'm also of the mindset that we shouldn't hold anything back in life. Life is so short and fragile so if we think there's a possibility of a future for something we should jump on it.1
