Previously we discussed why we should not re-date our exes. Many people make a decision to be in relationship with their best friend because they think they know each other well, compatible enough, share similar equation but they forget that, they have just explored the friendly side of the significant other. He/she can be a different person once you start dating them. So today we are gonna state few reason why one should not date their best friend. Scroll down to read to know those reasons:
1. You Could Lose Your Best Friend Forever
Losing a best friend is way more painful than breaking up with your partner. It’s risky dating your best friend because if thing won’t work out between you two, then you might just end up losing your partner as well as your best friend too. One should avoid taking such risk.
2. Your Best Friend Knows A Little Too Much About You.
Well you can’t deny to the fact that your best friend knows much more in comparison to others. They know all your deepest, darkest secrets. They know what kinda person you are when it comes to dating as they know the history. May be in a long run, having so much of detail can be harmful for the relationship.
3. Being Best Friends And Being Partners Is Very Different
Dating best friend is more like ‘Friends with benefits’ wrapped under the tag of ‘girlfriend-boyfriend’. Compatibility issue arises because compatibility as partners versus compatibility as friends is totally different. A partner is a responsibility whereas friend is someone who has your back.
4. You No Longer Have A Best Friend To Turn To
When you fight with your partner, you always have your best friend on whose shoulder you can cry on but if your best friend is your partner then you no longer have a friend to turn to. You can no more go to your best friend to talk about a fight or a break up in the same way you used to. Best friend is a solace in times of trouble, and losing him/her is equivalent to losing one most valuable thing you ever had.
5. You Could Find Yourself In A Jealous Mess
Now that you got promoted from being best friend to love interest, you might get jealous if you partner finds a new best friend. That jealous factor takes place when you see your partner having a new best friend and treating him/her in same way that he/she used to treat you before you started dating him/her. Such jealousy usually leads to frequent fights and insecurity.
6. From No Filter to Adding Filters
You can share anything with your friend. You can kick him/her in public. You can make fun of him/her anywhere. But can’t do same things when you start dating your best friend. ‘Respect’ is one of the basic need of a relationship and because of that one starts adding filters. That is when you realize that treating best friend is way more different than treating a partner. In order to keep each other happy and maintain the balance of relationship people add filters.
