Transition from friends with benefits to dating
Here is the basic scenario: What if you have been long-time friends with a girl for three years and recently you started seeing her in a new light?We already hang out either with a group or alone pretty often. And how do I find out how she feels without making it awkward?
It really is true that, in the best relationships, your partner is also your best friend.I feel that in the end, we would eventually need to talk about our intentions because hanging out alone now may feel like a date to me because of my change in feelings, but to her it probably is “just friends hanging out” unless she secretly likes me, too. First, I like the idea of a dating relationship having some friendship history.If a dating/courtship relationship is anything, it should be an amazing friendship.However, making that transition from friendship to something "more" is not without its challenges.Sometimes, things just evolve naturally, but just as often, it takes effort to move from the friend zone to the, well, bone zone (sorry).I know Boundless has a lot of articles about being buddies with the opposite sex and how you shouldn’t be super close with your opposite sex friend unless your intentions are to date her.
But I had a question on how to go about dating your best friend.
One of those is what you’re now experiencing: Given enough shared time and enough shared emotional energy, it is virtually impossible for stronger feelings not to develop.
That’s great if it happens to both at generally the same time, but when only one of you begins to “fall,” the friendship is on an unavoidable track to change. But it won’t be nearly as difficult as saying anything and trying to stuff your feelings and emotions, especially when you’re around her. It wouldn’t be fair to either of you to if you didn’t.

Plus, it’s a lot harder to take things back to normal if they aren't feeling it. Flirting in person is great, but it’s not the only way to start hinting you want something more. When you're crushing on someone, it’s natural to want to focus all your attention on them all the time, but that can be a little awkward.
