“It’s important that she feels special and that you break your friendship routine and take her out on dates.
I mean, what wedding doesn’t have a bride or groom, or both, proclaiming, “I’m so lucky I married my best friend! We all want the comfort and security that a friendship provides us along with a romantic relationship that keeps us hot and bothered. Well, we’re not going to lie to you: you risk losing everything. “As soon as romantic feelings are involved, your friendship changes.
Be aware that your interaction with this person will change now that feelings are involved.
As soon as you are in the romantic relationship zone you risk getting hurt. We want all the benefits it reaps, but we don’t want the repercussions from it, either.
You will find that you may take things more personally and become more defensive because now you care more. From personal experience, I would say: proceed with caution.
Also, when it comes to sex with a friend, voicing expectations is pretty important, too.“If your feelings are involved, let her know before you have sex or as soon as possible afterwards,” Nicole says.
“She may think you are just friends with benefits and you risk getting hurt if you say nothing.
