Christian dating your best friend


Dating needn’t be difficult – especially when you have a shot at finding fellow singles with whom you might have a deeper connection.But if you’re stuck in an online dating rut and searching for love in your immediate surroundings, it’s really only natural that your eyes will rest first on the person you’re closest to.Let’s face it, meeting singles in day-to-day life is otherwise pretty hard.If there’s even a remote possibility that you could be dating your best friend – that you could love them and they could love you in a deeper way – surely it’s worth exploring?But what if you already have that special someone in your life?



You both probably already do all of the things that make you happy anyway – whether it’s going out for drinks, or catching a movie, or just chilling at home, you’re already accustomed to having fun together.When you’re single, your best friend is already the closest thing you have to a significant other.Be warned though: Courtship is a special time for every couple – it’s when you make many of the memories that’ll last the entire life of your romance.Letting your guard down when you’ve been hurt before is hardest, and trusting that your new partner will be understanding enough to ‘just get it’ doesn’t always work out. Luckily, they’re already well aware of any emotional baggage, and can take steps to ensure they don’t make the same mistakes your ex-partners might have.

Whether it’s making you feel more secure in the relationship by not eyeing up strangers, or nagging you less, or treating you more on dates, your best friend has access to a ton of neat tricks that will make them the partner you actually deserve!

Be warned though: While your friend may always have been there to console you after a messy break-up, they might not have been there for all of the bad times with your ex-partner.
