Cupid’s Advice:

Being friends first isn’t a new idea, but it’s definitely a point of controversy in the dating world. Cupid has some benefits to solidifying a friendship with someone before jumping into a relationship:

1. Comfort: Relationships are very easy to start when you really know each other. There can be so much comfort found in friendships, and that comfort can be passed over into a wonderful new love.

2. Imperfections: In a friendship, it is so much easier to show off your flaws and imperfections. Friends make it easy to open up and be who you want to be because you don’t feel you have to impress them. If you start off like this, before a relationship, your partner will know the real you.

3. Time: How long you’ve known each other is really important as well. If you have known each other for a couple of years, then it is really easy to add romance into the mix, assuming you’re attracted to one another in that way.
