Dating a friend good or bad

24 Nov

If it’s a messy breakup, your friends are inevitably going to choose sides.It’s going to be awkward when you’re all out together, and not just for you, but for your friends, as well.So if you're asking yourself, here are 5 reasons you absolutely should.1. Let's face it: during the first few months of dating someone new, it's easy to hold yourself together and pretend like you don't have a dark side (everybody has one).You downplay your insecurities in hope that he won't see you as clingy, and you suppress the fact that you occasionally get moody, jealous, or pointlessly angry. Things just kept getting in the way, but you never dismissed the idea of being with them.5. You've already made a reservation for you and your best friend. Then they were into you, but maybe you found someone else, or moved away for college.

You and your boyfriend may not be the only ones parting when you break up.

With your BFF as your romantic partner, you get the best of both worlds, someone with whom you can laugh, share your life and cuddle.

When you look at seemingly happy celebrity couples like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, or Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow, not only do they appear to be in love, but they also seem to genuinely enjoy hanging out together.

So why not just date someone from your friend group? You see him often, you get along with him, he knows you well. If you’re dating someone in your friend group, it’s going to be pretty hard to keep things private.

Your friends are going to know about your fights, your sex life and just about any problem you have in your relationship. You can kiss the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ thing goodbye.
