Dating your friends can be kind of freaky - you’re always going to risk everything going wrong and then losing one of your friends. But if you’ve ever dated a friend before, you know it actually tends to lead to some of the best relationships. And there’s even science to back this stuff up!
A study by the University of Texas shows that the longer you’ve known someone, the more attractive they become to you. (And it’s not just based on looks!) Many couples have known each other for as long as four months before they started dating. The secret? You’ve gotten to know them for their strengths and their weaknesses, so by the time it comes down to getting dirty, you’ve already accepted the bad stuff.
And think about it, the better someone knows you, the more they can make you laugh and have a good time and stuff.
