Share your stories of romances that started with friendship

Recent research has found that two-thirds of couples start out as friends. But dating a mate can be risky – and if the romance runs out, the friendship may not survive either. これを考慮して, we want to hear about your experiences turning a platonic relationship into a romantic one.

Perhaps you were friends with your partner for years before feelings became more amorous, but found the friendship-first approach to be key to building a lasting relationship? Maybe you discovered that turning your friendship into a love affair also had an impact on the dynamics of your wider social circle? Or perhaps you’ve been secretly in love with a pal, but didn’t tell them for fear of ruining the friendship. Whatever your experience of blurring the lines between friendship and romance, we want to hear about it below.
