It is often seen that a bond which starts as friendship turns into a romantic affair later on. In many cases, people end up loving someone who is their close friend but it is always not true.
While there are some who get engaged in a romantic liaison after being friends for some time, there are also those who happen to lose their most intimate buddy by trying to label it as romance. It is not always wise to rush into a romantic relationship with a friend if you aren't sure of the feelings she holds for you.
There are certain things one needs to bear in mind when considering turning their friendship with a special friend into a romantic affair.
Analyze the situation carefully
You have developed feelings of love for a friend but before you decide to profess your deep desires it is best to think of the situation carefully. It might be that your chemistry with this friend of yours clicks only because you share friendship but it might fail when you get into a romantic relationship. There might be chances that love relation may fail if there are no feelings of deep passion or excitement as is present in romance but only a feel-good bond that exists in friendship.
Find out about the feelings of your friend
Jump into romance only if you are sure that the same feelings of love and passion are there in your friend as well. You might risk losing your friendship also if you rush into quickly in making your friend your beloved without thinking of the consequences. Look out for signs to assess whether your friend is genuinely interested in getting into romance with you. Take time and have patience to read the signals that will help you learn about the exact feelings of your friend towards you. Make a move to turn your friendship into romance only once you are sure that amity will not love in the wave of time.
Romancing close friends can be hazardous
The biggest risk of dating your close friend is that your words and actions may not be taken seriously. Things that you expected to take place in your romance might not happen if you stick to remaining good friends even after expressing your love for each other. You might be taken for granted given if you and the other person happen to be very good friends. Love relationship might suffer if none of you show respect to each other’s feelings and understand each others as lovers.
Introduce changes in yourself
Try incorporating things that your friend wishes to see in his/her beloved if you really wish to turn your friendship into romance. Make attempts to make your friend feel special whenever you are around him/her. Drop hints to show that your concern for his/her well-being doesn't spring up only because of the friendship that you share but there is something more than that which you desire to share. Be expressive and persuasive if you wish to make your friend realize that turning the bond into romance will lead to happiness for both.
