Pros cons dating your best friend

“You’ve already taken that time to figure out that you’re compatible with each other,” says Winnie*, a 22-year-old recent college graduate.

Although my relationship crashed and burned, the lessons I learned were invaluable.

I had a friend whom I’d known for almost six years.

Movies like that don’t capture the sleepless nights of angst rehearsing what you should say the next time you see him, or that awkward moment when you’re watching a movie and you can’t tell if he inched closer to be near to you or to have better access to the popcorn bucket.

And while it’s easy to assume, as I did, that you know what the other person wants because you were friends already, relationships are never truly easy to navigate.
