What are some advantages to becoming romantic with a long-time friend?

Cupid’s Advice:

There is a lot of risk that comes with asking out a friend. You could be ‘friend-zoned’ or the relationship might crash and burn, taking your friendship down with it. But not to fear! Sometimes these friendships-turned-relationships work out, and they become some of the best romances you could imagine. Here are some of the advantages to turning a friend into something more:

1. You can skip the awkward first date process. When you’re friends with someone, chances are you’ve gone out to dinner or had a movie night together at some point. Usually these types of dating activities can be awkward ice-breakers at first, but with friends there’s no need to make attempts at weird small talk or get-to-know-you games.

2. Their family already knows you. In most cases, you already know your friend’s family to a point. True, this will completely change the way they see you, but now your friend’s family already knows how great you are and how you’ve stuck by their little boy or girl over the years. This scores some points that a random stranger wouldn’t get.

3. You know that this person already makes you happy. Yes, you’ll have to explore the physical and romantic aspects more, but when it comes to whether or not this person can make you happy on an emotional level, you know your friend already qualifies. When two strangers date, they have to build up both the romance and the friendship. But when you’re dating your friend, you’re already halfway there!
