Is your bestie your perfect match? They could be! We’re looking at 10 signs that you’re already dating your best friend…and you don’t even know it!
Whether it’s strangers, friends, or family, do you find people constantly asking if you and your best friend are a couple? This might be funny the first few times, but if you’re constantly shielding off questions regarding your romantic status and getting comments about what a “cute couple” you are, it can get annoying—fast. But do you ever wonder if your family is catching onto something that you’re not?
If the thought of dating your best friend sends you into preschool-like fits of, “Eww, gross!” or “She has cooties!” then you probably haven’t been entertaining romantic thoughts—with good reason. There’s something to be said for caution, as dating your best friend can have some icky consequences, but there are also super sexy benefits to falling in love with your best pal.
Signs you’re dating your best friend already
So have you crossed the line from best friends into something more? We’re looking at 10 signs you may actually be dating your best friend—and you don’t even realize it!
#1 You’re already labeled by your friends. Friends know best, right? Sometimes, our friends catch on to things before we do. For example, are you constantly having to make a defense with a long, thought-out list of reasons why you’re “so not a couple” to your friends? Or do your friends expect that if they invite one of you to a party or event, the other one will inevitably show up as well?
If your friends are already pairing the two of you up, or can’t quite say your name without naming your “other half,” then you might want to start rethinking your “we’re just friends” stance.
#2 Words are now beneath you. You and your best friend are now so in tune that you could have a whole conversation using your body language alone. Someone annoying you at a party? You can secretly mock this person with your BFF, using nothing but a glance. Feeling totally bummed out in a social situation? Your BFF already knows, and comfort is on the way! That’s right, when you really gel with someone, you can communicate without using language. You just know each other *that* well.
