Do you believe friendship is the best way to fall in love?

for me its a Yes! it's a good start because you have to like someone before you love them. You have to have a friendship for any relationship to survive.

In my opinion, friendship serves as the foundation for love, generally people become friends first, and then fall in love.....

I believe being friends first is a good way to start a relationship. When you are friends, you two are already comfortable with each other and know so much about each other that it is easy to start a relationship. I wouldn't like my best friends though because I wouldn't want to ruin the friendship

i agree with you. i think there is no better foundation than being friends and getting to know each other well before you dive in to a deeper relationship. when lovers used to be friends, they tend to be more comfortable with each other and more open. they are sensitive of each others' feelings because they already know what hurts the other.

According to my opinion friendship is the best way to fall in love...its just because friendship has got its unique power to make each person understandable.that is through friendship one person can knows the other one clearly......thoroughly saying,true friendship can brings the persons more close which leads to the formayion of a love between them...so strictly speaking friendship is the best method to fall in love

it depends girl! if the foundation of your friendship is already very strong then i don't think that you'll end up being strangers if your relationship as lovers won't work out... :)

hey there. My wife and I met on the internet in a chat room and a friendship blossomed before we got into a relationship. We spent months getting to know one another and from this our perfect love has bloomed! It is important that if love is going to last to really undestand one another and can communicate freely. I knew very early on in our friendship that I wanted more but knew that we really needed to get to know one another first if it was going to last. And here we are two years later. We have recently moved in with one another and married. My wife is my lover, friend and family all rolled into one. She is my everything and I am the luckiest person alive!

I personally don't think that friendship is the best way to fall in love, it is one of the easiest and widely used method to lure opposite -ex (unable to write this world as its blocked as 'content of mature nature'.

Hi shhheila, I personally dont think friendship is the best way to fall in love. People might get too comfortable with the friendship relationship and might be afraid to bring it to the next level. I believe to fall in love, we need that certain chemistry. If we have been friends for so long, I doubt we have that kind of chemistry unless, you've already been eyeing him/her at the beginning of that friendship. Then if that is so, yes, as the friendship blossoms, so might the relationship. Whatever it is, as long as we have that spark between us, and add in a little understanding and tolerance, the relationship might work. It takes two to tango.. so go ahead.. tango!

Well, you've already answered your own question . Love begins with friendship because we don't fall in love with total strangers. Even when we go on a blind date, we still get to see the person then only get to know him/her.
