When I was a kid, I wasn”t sure how I felt about the idea of falling in love with your best friend. It seemed like something grown-ups loved talking about, my own parents included, but when you”re a kid it”s a baffling idea.

For one thing, I didn”t have any male best friends as a kid, and though I might not have hit puberty at that point, I definitely knew that when it came to falling in love, I fell on the straight side of the spectrum. Plus, all of the stuff I did with my best friends wasn”t exactly the romantic-walk-on-the-beach-at-a-Sandals-resort-for-couples I expected to encounter in my romantic life.
But in a way, I now get that it”s natural to fall for your best friend. After all, who else knows you better? And sure, sitting on the couch eating cookie dough doesn”t fit most of our traditional ideas of romance, but it”s definitely a more appealing thing to do with the potential love of your life than, say, braiding each other”s ponytails.
When you fall in love with your best friend, it can be the best thing in the world or the worst thing in the world. If they love you back, it can feel like the sky is the limit; it”s like a fairytale come to life. But if you love your best friend and they don”t feel the same way or you”re scared to share your true feelings, it can feel like eaten alive by flames.
