10 Amazing Things Only People Who Date Their Best Friend Would Understand

10 Amazing Things Only People Who Date Their Best Friend Would Understand

Best friends are a rare gem in life. They’re precious and must be held carefully to keep the friendship safe. The same exact thing can be said about romantic relationships. But the most rare find of all is finding that your best friend is also the same person you are in a relationship with. Sometimes a friendship turns into romance or the relationship ends up creating the bond of best friends.

No matter how it happens, it’s only when you are lucky enough to find a relationship with your best friend that you realize how truly amazing it is.

If you’ve found love with your best friend, you know the following to be true.

1. You can read their mind

It often feels like best friends can read each others’ minds. By simply looking at each other, they know exactly what the other is thinking.

When you are in a relationship with your best friend, this phenomenon becomes even better. The emotional bond in a relationship becomes so strong, not only can you tell what they are thinking, but you are most often thinking the same thing.

2. You are always together

People love taking road trips with their best friends, and they love taking vacations with their significant others. When your significant other is your best friend, you get to be with them for all of these trips.

You never have to choose if you should be taking a trip with your best friend or your significant other — because you’re lucky enough that they are the same person.

3. They understand you like no one else

Best friends know you inside and out. When you are in a relationhsip, your significant other also knows everything that’s in your heart. But often times there are a few secrets you hide from either one. Things that you would feel uncomfortable telling your best friend, or a secret you’re not sure if you should share with your significant other.

But when you’re in a relationship with your best friend, you find yourself opening up a whole new part of yourself, exposing every secret. It makes you, as a couple, that much stronger.

4. Nights in become infinitely better

Spending a night in as a couple becomes infinitely more fun when your significant other is also your best friend. You feel you couldn’t ask for a better Friday night than binge watching movies, a nice bottle of wine, and of course, some junk food.

This makes for the perfect romantic night in — all the while having lots of fun because you’re with your best friend.

5. They will be there for you like no one else

Best friends are a shoulder to cry on; romantic partners hold you tightly when things go wrong.

When you’re in a relationship with your best friend, they are there for you like no one else. They will protect you fiercely, and care for you with every ounce they have — because you are their entire world.

6. You can trust them with your heart

Knowing that your significant other is also your best friend adds a comforting layer of security that makes your heart feel protected. You’ve trusted them with so much, like your secrets and your friendship, that it becomes easy to trust them with your heart. You feel that they will do anything to keep it safe.

7. Dinners out become way more fun

Dining out is such a fun thing to do when you’re out with your best friend. You gorge on anything and everything you want and have no worries about ordering that second drink. When you are out with your significant other, you have the fun and excitement of romance.

When these two get combined, a couple who is also best friends get double dining-out fun. Not only do you feel comfortable having the extra drink and ordering that loaded baked potato instead of a salad, but you also get to share your significant other’s food, all while having a romantic night together.

8. You can find them in a crowded room just by sensing them

In a crowded party, you always want to be able to find your best friend and your significant other. But when a room is really crowded, it can obviously be tough. When you’re in a relationship with your best friend, you can almost feel their presence — which makes finding them completely easy.

There’s some type of unexplained bond which gives you a very specific type of feel when your best friend and significant other is around. Something that fills in from your heart and flows through your veins, alerting every part of you that they are near.

9. You can be your true self around them

Best friends have seen each other with no makeup, sweatpants, and in dirty t-shirts. It’s a level of comfort you gain when you are around those that know you best.

When a couple is best friends, that level of comfort is even better. You don’t have to be in a constant state of dressing to impress, you can be seen in your ratty pajamas and your significant other will find you just as attractive and love you just the same.

10. They will never judge you

The reason a best friend is a best friend is because they love you for who you are and they will never judge you for anything that you do. When you are lucky enough to date your best friend, you know that your opinions, actions, and deepest fears will never be judged.

Being in a relationship with your significant other has so many amazing qualities; it is a relationship most people strive for. Best of all is knowing that no matter what, they are on your side and will love you through it all.
