What do I mean by Date your best friend?Simple. Date your best friend. Done. Do it! Trust me, you won't ever regret it.
Why Date Your Best Friend?Because you will find that dating your best friend will help you to see what you want in your next partner. When you're in a relationship, you tend to give in to what the other wants/does and you shouldn't settle. But when you date your best friend, you find out how you actually want to be treated and from then on, you wont settle for anything less than how your best friend treated you.
How Do You Date Your Best friend?Take them on a date of course! First, change your status on social media, because nothing says official like Facebook official. When you're done with that, then you can do everything else in whatever order you like.
Go to the movies together. Cruise around at night listening to your friendship album. Go to Olive Garden. Spend the night at each other's houses watching weird indie movies, while drinking chocolate milk. Be the firs to tell them happy birthday on their birthday. Do things you both like to do and experience new things together. Travel together. And when you go on family vacations, bring them back a souvenir. Text them when your sad, your mad, or plain happy. Doe everything together and take pictures of it all to look back on later.
When should you date your best friend?Probably before you get into your next relationship.
What happens after?After you two have dated and you're both married to your significant others and you don't live down the street from each other anymore, don't forget about your best friend. Don't forget about the one person who taught you what love was. Continue to have dates nights every once in a while. Text each other when an old song comes on the radio that you use to cruise to. Tag each other in those "best friend for life" posts on Facebook. Give them gifts just cause. Let them know how much you appreciate their friendship.
If I could give you one piece of advice, it would be to date your best friend.
