There are ways to make the transition smoothly from just friends to more though, if you are patient and start following some general guidelines.First of all, if you want your “friend” to look at you as someone he or she could date, you have to ease up on being so comfortable around them.If you have been hanging out with someone for awhile as friends, it is only natural that you may begin to develop a crush on that person, as half the foundation for having a good relationship is in being able to be friends as well.
This does not mean you can’t be easy to get along with, but you have to pass up the sweats and try and make yourself look more attractive while hanging out.
Your “friend” will never get hot for you if they’re too used to seeing you in slacker mode.
Basically, what you’re doing is testing the waters.
This will help you make the situation easier as you gently move from being friends into something more serious.
That’s great if it happens to both at generally the same time, but when only one of you begins to "fall," the friendship is on an unavoidable track to change. But it won’t be nearly as difficult as saying anything and trying to stuff your feelings and emotions, especially when you’re around her. It wouldn’t be fair to either of you to if you didn’t.
But when "buddy" feelings start giving way to deeper heart feelings, it is rare to ever go back to "buddies." I advise that you have "that" conversation with her. It could be that, as you mentioned, she has had the same thoughts and is favorable to the idea. It will be a little weird at first, but that will eventually smooth out when you both get used to the idea.
Community Q&A Sometimes we meet someone and become friends with them.
We then develop feelings for each other and go on to date them. Do we have to lose that person from our lives forever?
But I had a question on how to go about dating your best friend.
Here is the basic scenario: What if you have been long-time friends with a girl for three years and recently you started seeing her in a new light?
Trust me, there already is a relationship, and something significant is about to happen to it.
