4. You are jealous
When we are in love with someone and when we love someone, it is natural that we are a little jealous because we only want that person for ourselves. For example, you and your friends go to a bar for a drink.
A good friend of your crush shows him a pretty woman at the bar and convinces him to talk to her. You smile and agree, but feel like a cold knife went through your heart at that moment.
If you're jealous when your best friend is around other women, or when he's talking about other women, then it's clear that you feel a little more for him.
That The same applies vice versa.
If you mention your ex or another man during the conversation and notice different reactions or facial expressions from him, it means that he also likes more for you. r feels you and is jealous.
5. You are always there for each other
You are not only best friends, but also each other's greatest support and always stand behind each other.
You have been through a lot together in your life. You cried together and laughed together…

You will not only leave everything and come, but also turn the world upside down to find a solution to the problem and help each other.

Of course, we know most things about our best friends.
But when we connect with someone on such a deep level that we knowing their secrets and desires and also sharing them with them without fear or shame means that you accept each other for who you are.

7. Everyone around you thinks you're a couple
When the chemistry between two people is right, it's in the air and those around you notice it.
If most of the people around you think you are a couple or would be a good couple, ask yourself why.

So when other friends tell you that you are acting strange, that there is something between you, that you looks good together, then they may have noticed a difference in your relationship that you haven't noticed or don't want to notice.
In any case, sometimes it's not bad to listen to what those around you are saying say has. 😉

Then it's a sign that you like each other and maybe it's time to admit how you feel about each other.
9. You spend time away from your other friends
When you fall in love, all you want is to enjoy the company of that other person. Listen to her, look her in the eye and simply enjoy the time together.
It's not the easiest thing when two people in love move constantly in the same circle of friends, and it's even more complicated when you still haven't made his feelings known.
For example, if he often proposes ;if it's just the two of you going to the movies, drinking coffee, dinner, bowling, etc., then that's a sign he wants to spend time alone with you.
He's looking a chance to be as close to you as possible, to get to know you even better and to have as much fun with you as possible.
This also applies to you. If you just want to spend time with him and you don't mind if other friends aren't with you, then you're definitely more than friends.
10. You can imagine a relationship with him
Finally, one of the most obvious signs that you have a crush on your boyfriend is when you see him as a potential boyfriend partner. You often find yourself daydreaming about him.
When he's around you, you think about how it would be if he kissed you right now.

In order to make the right decision, the best solution, like anything else, is to weigh the pros and cons.
Therefore, below you will find why a relationship with a good friend is the best of your life and also what could go wrong.
Is there more between us than just friendship? Pros and cons of a relationship with a friend
1. The suspension of the introductory phase
While the dating phase is a really interesting part of dating, it can be very stressful.
We need to make a good impression, care about how we look, charm the other person, interesting topics of conversation find, flirt, and so on and so forth.
If we can make it work, then we need to get to know his friends and family and try to please them too, which is a big one too Putting pressure on us.
However, in the best friend relationship, we can skip this.
There is no need to make small talk and ask each other about pets when we already have everything Knowing about each other.
And although this phase of getting to know is skipped, there remains one that is even more interesting and that is getting to know each other’s thoughts, feelings, desires and yourself at an even deeper level.
Plus, there's always something new to learn about or with each other.
2. You already know everything about each other
The good thing about starting a relationship with your best friend is that you already know everything about each other. You know what makes the other tick, how they usually behave in relationships and what you can expect from each other.
We never pretend in front of friends, while we never show our weaknesses and quirks in front of our partner, at least not until trust is built.
Your best friend will surely make you angry and angry you must have cried and laughed.
He's seen you with and without make-up, in a fancy dress and tracksuit and you can be sure he knows the real you.< /p>
If he accepts you as such with all that is you, you can be sure that it is true love.
3. Hard Connection
For a relationship to be successful, trust must be built. It is something that couples in love have yet to achieve after going through the introductory phase, the infatuation phase and the deeper connection.
Sometimes it is a difficult path full of obstacles that must be overcome ;and sometimes trust takes a long time to build.
However, relationships born of friendship have a solid foundation that is difficult to break.
They are already based on trust, honesty and mutual helpfulness.
Such a relationship offers security and habit, and in this case the process is reversed: the infatuation phase for such couples is just beginning.
Like everything has its downsides, so too has a relationship with a friend. Not really the relationship itself, but the fact that you're in love with your boyfriend.
The worst thing that can happen is that one of you doesn’t reciprocate the feelings to the same degree and then you can end up in the friend zone.
Then the friendship is doomed because with Being friends with someone you feel more than friendship for rarely works.
2. You can lose friends
The other thing that is risky, besides the fact that you can lose each other, is that one of you could lose mutual friends.
If you get into a relationship and it fails, there is the possibility of you distancing yourself from each other and therefore one of you must also distance yourself from mutual friends.
Of course it's just a guess, but it's still something to deal with must reckon with when considering the risks of a best friend relationship.
3. You don't try so hard
And the last thing that can be considered a disadvantage is that you stop trying sooner than you would otherwise in relationships.
You think: He already knows the best and worst in me and I don't have to try to impress or win him over.
It's a very common mistake, not only in such relationships, but also in long-term relationships where the partners take each other for granted.
As much as the partners love each other, it's necessary to spice things up a bit from time to time and win each other's heart back.
Bottom line: Admitting to a friend that you feel a little more for them is not easy step and involves a great risk. But hand on heart: what is not risky in life?
They say: If you don't dare in life, you risk a lot: never anything to win.
Of course there’s a chance that you will lose your best friend, but there’s also an even bigger chance that you will get everything you ever dreamed of and that friendship will turn into a movie love , which we all dream of as a girl.
Anything is possible, so listen to your heart and let it guide you on the path to true love! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and wish you the best of luck! 😊
