Do you like your friend as more than just a friend? Ready to take it to the next level and start a romantic relationship? Here are tips on how to make the transition smooth:
Take it slow. Even if you’re best friends and know each other inside and out there’s no need to rush into a super close romantic relationship. Start slow just as you would if you were dating a stranger. Taking your time will ensure that neither of you feel rushed or pressured.
Don’t spend every second together. Even if you usually hang out all the time, make sure you take time for yourself and other activities. This will prevent you from taking things too fast and burning out too soon.
Be yourself. You might feel a bit awkward at first when turning a friendship into a romantic relationship but it’s important to just be yourself. Don’t feel like you need to put on a different personality around him or her just because you’re dating. They like you for you, so stay that way.
