hi friends... some times we come accross such a situation that our best buddy is standing in our life and we realise that he'e the only one we can spend life with... friends know each other very well... all habbits, likes , dislikes of each other... they even know the compatibility of each other... so its been said that good friends are also good life partner... is this true???? i thing we should not mix frienship with love???? wat u say????

This is an oucher for me. My best friend, I have realized, I could, would and probably will spend the rest of my life with. Our major points of difference aren't any different than the most successful of couples. The rest we are so aligned in that it seems unnatural to be apart more than a couple of days. So of course I'm inclined to think that she would be the "one" for me to spend the rest of my life with. But in a twist of irony, for the same exact reasons I think it would be great, she sees it as a reason not to go that way, arguing that if the marriage fails that it would kill her to lose her best friend too. What to do? Just enjoy it for all it is - as is.

I think good friends can be good life partners as well as they say. As good friendship you know each other very well. so it becomes easy to adjust. i think its true as most of the people say so. But there are always exceptions.

it depends on case to case. I have seen there are many best friends who have become ideal couple too. Also there are few who thought they would be best couple but later differed. But most logically it should work good. But its also good that friendship and love always are not good at same time. Still it wotks for many.

Well it all depends on what each's prospective is on it.. i mean i could do it, i am a person who cannot hate nor hold a grudge and if i went into it i would know well at any time this could not work..as long as whoever relizes first that its not ganna work they back out right then rather then stay and fake and mislead the other.... if u are both able to forgive and forget easily i dont see a problem.

Sometimes yes and somtimes no. It's just about that special feeling that we need to feel. I also had same experience. My best male friend was in love with me. He proposed me, I also thought that after knowing so much about eachother what could go wrong in our relationship and I accepted his proposal. We started going out with eachother. But the thing was I could never feel that special feeling that I need to feel for my lover. I could think about him was nothing more than a friend. There was no love between us but just a friendship. So, after going out for sometime I broke up with him.

Friendship and love are difficult to deal with. But your feeling could tell it is friendship or love. Good friendship could be as treasurable as love, but it still couldn't take the place of love. You may image how you would feel the life without this good friend to see how importmant she is.

From my experience these situations are quite dangerous because if you break up then you cant even be friends after that.It happened to me and it hurts so much more than if you break up with someone that you were not friends with before. But its so wonderful while it lasts that if i had the chance i'd do it again.Its better to have really loved someone although you end up feeling hurt in the end than not to have really loved at all...
