You're absolutely right. You never know until you try. My husband and I are actually the perfect example of that. We were best friends for years before we even started dating. And, it worked out for us. I know a lot of people are afraid of messing up their friendship, and that's the reason why they never try a romantic relationshp. But, I believe that the best relationships come from having a strong friendshp first. That's what I always believed, and I always dreamt that my husband would be my best friend. It takes a lot of courage to take the jump from friendship to romance. And, if you're friendship is strong enough, it will withstand the pressure, whether it works out romantically or not.

I don't see why it wouldn't or couldn't work out , if you are good friends to begin with then obviously you like something about each other already . I believe a lot of good relationships are based on the fact that you begin as friends and it develops into something more . Also like you said we never know something until we try it and if you go on others telling you it will never work out then you could be missing out on something wonderful .
