Best friends are hard to come by. These are people in your life who you've grown to trust, value, and love, likely for years. But what happens when that last L-word, love, turns into another: lust? Is having sex with your best friend actually a good idea? Compared to people who meet as strangers, Cocharo says couples who start as friends—especially best friends—have a much better foundation. People who just get attracted to someone they see across the room have a lot of pheromones, Cocharo says.
Ideally, Cocharo says the conversation would come before you actually decide to have sex with the person. This approach puts you in a less vulnerable position phew : You're not telling them you're in love with them or want to marry them. You're just gauging their interest. Of course, sometimes the sex happens first especially if there's alc involved. In that case, Cocharo says that you should still have a "what was this conversation? It might be uncomfortable in the beginning, but it's the best time to make sure that you two are on the same when it comes to whether or not the sex meant something more than sex.
That's okay. If you have this conversation before or after the sex and find out that the feelings aren't mutual, don't be too hard on yourself.
Just know that you might have to set some new boundaries in your friendship. Maybe don't stay over their house after falling asleep during movie night. If you have actual romantic feelings for them, not just sexual ones, you might even have to take a break from the friendship.
Just be honest and say, "We're friends, we will always be friends, but I'm taking the next few months away from you to calm down my own feelings, attractions, and attachment to you. And then we can pick up where we left off as friends.
Of course! Here are a few happy endings, sad endings, and somewhere in between Sometimes friendship precedes a relationship, and sometimes a relationship precedes friendship There are none! None that people wanted to share, anyway. Maybe Cocharo's theory is true, after all Ultimately, the decision to have sex with your best friend is completely up to the two of you and you both have to decide if it's worth the risk.
If you're friendship is strong enough, as it was for many of these women, it'll survive. Good luck! Weight Loss. United States. Type keyword s to search. Today's Top Stories.
