Before I met my guy , I thought there were friends and then there were lovers. It would be nice to mix them but it isn't necessary. Boy was I wrong. My guy Is my best friend. Whenever I need to talk , he is right there to listen. he supports me in everything. I still have very close friends but my guy is my best friend. How about you? Is your love partner your best friend?

my husband is my best friend. no one listens to me and gives advices the same way that he does. no one is concerned about me and my affairs more than he does. no one makes me laugh like he does. i love him truly!

No it sounds wonderful. We are so lucky. Many are looking for what we have Or the have a lover and a best friend but not both in the same person.And I have seen how tension can rise when the best friend doesn't like the lover.

Yip, people can get upset when you tell them they need to be friends with their lovers as well. It's a good start to a healthy relationship, actually.

I think as long as you two can remain friends , the relationship will remain strong.Even if there are ups and downs.

With my guy I was sooo afraid to make it romantic. I feared we would mess up our friendship but our friendship has grown!

Yes, I would definitely say that my guy is my best friend. He's always the first person I think of in the morning and the last at night. Whenever I need something, I can go to him and talk about it. We have a lot of fun together and we get along well. He listens to what I have to say, even if it's not necessarily a problem. I love him with all my heart and I honestly don't know what I'd do without him.

I think the best part thing that happens in life is when you in love with someone who is also your best friend. Best friend knows all your flaws but still be there for you. :)

Of course, me and my husband are also best friends aside from being lovers. We share each other's activities for the day, our problems and our dreams.

Well, I think we all used to think that way. I know I did years ago when I was young. But, in reality, you best friend should be your lover also. That means that you get along very well and are like one person when you're together. I know that T is my best friend and lover. I thought that was the fact with my ex when I met her, but I was proven very wrong on that. I still think that I was always searching for T ever since then. Now I have her and it feels great.

No my love partner is not my best friend. I do tell him a lot but be live in different worlds also I don't know him that long as I know other people. Since we are living in different worlds he is also not the first I would run too because he is not able to help me anyway (not unwilling too but just too far away). For me it's not necessary he is that too. He does support me but mostly that means I have to do what I think it's the best. I don't need him to tell me that. I think a best friend should be able to help you out, understand you, etc. but far away and culture differences make that hard.

Well my husband wasn't my best friend before we got together and I still don't think we are best friends. We where friends and that was it and its still kind of the same. We are friends that are married and raising a baby together of course we love each other so every dearly and would die for each other and our daughter but we where never best friends.

Definitely he is my best friend, I'll survive a day just talking with him even if don't eat. I never trusted anyone other than my husband plus we enjoy to talk, so much that everyone will think that we both crazy just laughing for a joke.

Oh! Like that line in The Way We Were. She wanted to call her best friend to talk about her man but... He Was her best friend. Well, I'm so lucky, I don't have a reason to talk about my guy to another friend.

Always it is not simple to say "yes", because the situations cycle is not constant, it is still revolving, happy and sad are come one by one.

My husband is my best friend. I have other friends, but my husband is my closest friend. If I need to talk he always listens to me, he supports me in any way that he can and he knows me better than anyone else. We share so many things, and I know that I can always talk to him about my problems and I have told him things that I haven't told other people. He always talks me if he needs help or advice and I am always ready to listen and help if I can. I am very happy that we have such a close relationship, because my other relationships haven't been that way.

No, my love partner is not a best friend, in my opinion we can say anything to our best friend but in the case of love partner if we say something fault about their relatives he will get angry then how can i think and tell he is my best friend.You are really lucky to have best friend as your love partner.

Mine certainly is. We had romantic interest in each other from the start, but we wanted to make sure we could get along as friends, not just as lovers. We found we had a lot in common, and over our relationship became best friends before we really explored the romantic side. We see our friendship as the foundation of our relationship.

Like the blind bat I am I didn't even notice that my guy had fallen for me. We were Just friends at first.He was so patient.Thank G-d! It is wonderful to hear you both fell for each other But Wanted a friendship.That is so rare. It seems like many fall in love or lust and never get to be friends.
