Love and friendship are the two most amazing feelings in the world. So what happens when these two feelings clash with each other? Many say that a guy and a girl can never be 'only friends' for a lifetime. But that cannot be taken as the ultimate truth. Many people do stay the best of buddies their entire life. At the same, time in many cases, if childhood friends happen to be of the opposite gender then they finally end up falling for each other. Let us take a look at the pros and cons of falling in love with your childhood friend.
If you want to romance your friend and both of you happen to love each other then that's all fine. But what if the romantic feeling is one-sided? You may then simply end up in losing the friendship of your childhood friend. They happen to trust you as their best buddy. And when this trust is broken they get disheartened and end up ruining a long term friendship.
Best Relationship Ever
But the brighter side of the coin is when both fall in love with each other. There can be no better relationship in the world than this. You always want your life partner to be your best friend. Then what else can be better than marrying your childhood best friend? There are no pretensions and undue expectations set for each other in such cases. You are well aware of each other's instincts and can romance your childhood friend in the best possible way.
Among a few demerits of loving a friend, one is that there will be nothing new to explore about each other. But on the other hand when you are meeting up with some one new there is always something to discover about that person. Also after sometime, you may begin to lose interest in your childhood friend as a love and life partner. There will be no mystery to unfold about each other.
Know Everything About Each Other
As a child no one has any pretension about them. So when you grow up with a person as a child you get to know all their likes and dislikes. What they like to eat, what are their career preferences etc are all well known to you. And same is the case with your friend. You even know each other's family. This makes it very easy for both of you to adjust with each other's family after marriage.
So, if you want to propose to your friend keep these things in mind and then go ahead in the relationship.
