This would work for some people. It's a matter of risking the friendship. For me, I liked a guy and we became close friends over a matter of months but he never made a move and I was thinking 'okay, he'll just be my best friend' but then finally we began dating. I consider him my best friend. It's what happens when your comfortable and open with someone, sharing laughs isn't a bad thing either :)

Instead of a lot in common you put this. "Obviously, you and your best friend do have a lot in problem"

My husband is my Best friend now. I think I made your post true in reverse order!

i kind of agree, but most of the time you just end up losing a bestfriend and a boyfriend, which is what just happened to me. I think when people become bestfriends of a really high level the feel like they can't live without each other, and that leads to making them believe that they love each other in a romantic way, its rarely ever real love, so people then rush into a relationship that ruins both their friendship and their relationship as a couple. in my opinion i wouldn't risk dating a best friend in my age cause i'm only sixteen but in the future when i get older then maybe, cause then the chances of the relationship lasting are higher, so i baisically don't think teenagers should date their bestfriends but older and more mature people, why not, but only if its real love not bestfriend love.

I've been best friends with this guy a little over 3 years now and I'm only 17 now and we've done so much together and had so many memories... sometimes when we hang out I get the impression that he wants to be more than friends... don't get me wrong I like him and in these past few years I've grown to love him. Im not sure if he feels the same way but I want to tell him how I feel... how do I do it? any idea? all my friends and his say we need to stop with the 'best friends' and date cause eventually everyone sees us getting married. He knows EVERYTHING about me and I know everything about him too.. any advice? I'm very confused /:

I think in a lot of cases, this would be a great idea. The two of you would be so at ease together because you already know eachother so well but at the same time it would be new and exciting and you would learn even more about them. But i would be worried about it possibly going wrong. What happens then? I wouldn't want to lose my best friend over a failed relationship ): I guess you'd just have to go with your gut and hope it works out because it just might! (:
