Do best friends end up dating

Often, without consciously recognizing it, we become attached.He is your best friend, after all, and all of a sudden, you're not a priority in his social life.

How about when he posts a picture with his new girlfriend on his arm at the same restaurant he took you for your 23rd birthday?If you both enjoy flirty banter, be upfront that it's just that and nothing more. If you feel yourself falling for him, but feel a $200 romantic meal in Soho is not acceptable for just friends, just stick with the coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon.If he truly respects you, he will respect your feelings, no matter what.What we look for in our guy friends is very much the same in what we look for in a significant other: chemistry.Why would we want to hang out with a boring bro who plays video games all day?We want a guy friend who makes us laugh, goes out to dinner with us on a Friday night and watches the Rangers with us.

Whether it's his dark brown eyes, height, charming personality or love for the Yankees, we are in some capacity attracted to him.

If you deny this, ask yourself, “Why do I hang out with him?

”It's inevitable: You both form feelings at one point of the relationship.

Whether you like it or not, you feel threatened, even if you can honestly say you don't want to have sex with him.

If this feeling of threat hasn't happened yet, trust me, it will.

We don't get to choose our family, but we do get to choose our friends.
