For most of us, dating is a complicated ordeal. First you need to find the right person, then the tedious task of hitting on them and then, once you two are a couple, you have to figure each other out and work on making things work. But the entire process is a whole lot easier if you’re dating your best friend. Everything is so simple and uncomplicated.

Here are 16 reasons why dating your best friend is super-awesome!

1. You can skip the whole “Will you go out with me?” episode entirely!

With your best friend, “Chal date pe!” works just as much.

2. You can do away with all the conventional rules of dating.

With your best friend, you can make your own rules!

3. Which also means you don’t have to find romantic places to ‘go on a date’.

Taking your pet out for a walk together would also suffice!

4. You are super comfortable with your best friend!

Which means no awkward conversations. You can say and do whatever you want.

5. You can skip the getting-to-know-each-other phase. You already know each other inside out.

Whether it is your dating history, family history or likes and dislikes, your best friend can recount everything in no time!

6. You are aware of each other’s imperfections.

You’ve probably fought with each other a thousand times and despite all that, you find each other perfect!

7. You are also aware of each other’s insecurities.

You know what you don’t like in each other and this level of acceptance makes your relationship even stronger.

8. You never have to play the neurotic ‘I need to impress him/her’ card ever.

After seeing each other in tardy clothes, sick nose-blocks and terrible drunk nights, impression would be the least of your concerns.


9. You never have to worry about your ‘honeymoon period’ coming to an end.

Let’s face it, the real problems start only after this period runs its course. But with your best friend, it has and will always be glorious!

10. You never have to worry about your parents finding out!

The odds are that they think you’re already dating!

11. You can talk about anything and everything.

You will never have the awkward ‘what do we talk about now?’ moment with your best friend. A fly sitting on his/her nose is topic enough to start a conversation!

12. You will never share any awkward silences with your best friend.

You can sit idol without saying a word for hours and not feel awkward.


13. You never have to impress each other’s friends because you are already friends with them.

14. You will never get sick of spending time with each other!

You already do everything together. Dating would just mean adding the naughty stuff.

15. Your best friend understands how you feel without you saying a word.

You never have to worry about expressing yourself. He/she will always know.

16. For most people love happens after dating, but you already love your best friend!

It’s like eating maggi with extra masala and toppings! You have love, friendship, comfort and convenience! What more does one need?
