And then I fell in love with my best friend, and we lived happily ever after.
A person who falls in love with their best friend is a person with a very tough decision to make that more than likely will affect him/her for the rest of their life. Falling in love with a best friend is never easy and in some situations can end very badly, while in other situations may work out for the best for both parties. When someone is in love with a best friend, and they plan on pursuing this love interest, they should probably try to gauge their best friend’s interest in them romantically before showing their hand. It is also important for the person that is in love to be honest with their best friend, but never too forceful. Though telling a best friend that you have feelings for them is a very difficult thing to do, it would probably be more difficult living the rest of your life knowing that you felt something but never acted upon because of whatever reason you have in your head.
Why is it that we always fall for our best friend? Is it because we know we can trust them? Is it because we know them so well? Is it because of the way they know exactly what’s going on in our heads? Or is it because they are there any day, anytime, anywhere, without the promises of kisses, intimate touches or whispered sentiments of love? I think we love them because they are there when there is nothing in it for them except for that glimmer of hope that maybe someday, there will be.
