Can your best friend be the best life partner?

Some people think that it is better to have someone else as your life partner than your best friend. They believe that a relationship with your partner is different from that with your best friend and that you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket.

I believe that relationships are beautiful and they become even more beautiful when your best friend is also your life partner because everything becomes so much interesting and amazing!

Well this is my opinion.

Of course, there are no hard and fast rules about what is right or wrong in relationships. At the end of the day what matters is what works for you. But, for most of the people, coupling and even marrying their best friend works beautifully.

It is perhaps your best bet for finding true and lasting love. There is nothing better than having your best friend as your partner for life.

Have you ever wondered why friendships last longer than romantic relationships? The reason is that we choose the gems as friends but sadly fail at finding the right life partner for ourselves. It is the absence of this friendship that leads to unhappy marriages most of the time.

When we are out to make friendships, we are just ourselves with no pretensions and so attract like-minded pals. Haven’t you noticed how you and your best friend have SO MUCH in common?

So if a guy and a gal are best friends, wouldn’t they make an ideal couple?

What do you think?

Wouldn’t there be a greater possibility of a long-lasting relationship between two besties?

If you are one of those lucky people who have had the joy of dating their best friend, you are going to love this article.

20 Reasons your best friend is the best life partner

Here are 20 things that happen when your best friend is your life partner. So let’s begin.

1. You have similar beliefs, values and common friends

Well you may not experience the “Mystery” of falling in love with the mysterious guy or gal, but having the same point of view towards life, similar beliefs and several common friends, definitely assures a happy and exciting future.

2. You accept each other’s flaws

We put our best in front of the other when we are dating. But your best friend can see beyond the façade. He or she has seen your worst tantrums and the violent rage fits. And yet they have loved you enough to be with you. When your best friend is your life partner, he or she knows you for who you truly are and accepts you just the way you are. So you don’t have to worry about your partner judging you when they see your ugly side!

3. You set no unreasonable expectations

You and your best friend have already met each other’s expectations, and that is the reason why you two are best friends. Isn’t it? You know what the other person is capable of and what you can expect from him or her. This stops you from being unrealistic and impractical.

4. You know how to keep each other happy

Now, when two people know each other really well, they also know what makes the other one happy or sad. When you have somebody like your best friend who can make you laugh or smile without any effort, then you can definitely look forward to a happy and satisfied future with him or her.

5. You can talk forever!

“A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.”- Andre Maurois.

You can never run out of topics when you are talking with your best friend. You can read each other’s thoughts and talk about anything and everything under the sun, even on the dumbest topics.

6. Your Fights won’t last for long

Arguments and fights are an inevitable part of every relationship. Couples have several fights and disagreements even if you are married to your best friend. But the best part is that if you are married to your best friend these rocky moments don’t last for long. The fight which could turn into a war starts to fizzle out into playful fighting by the time it is over.

7. You are yourself in the relationship

You got to be yourself, you don’t have to go that extra mile to impress each other. You are not conscious when you are with them. Even on days when you are not your most attractive self, you will be loved by your partner. Being your true self is most important for a healthy union.

8. You know each other’s bad side

As best friends, you know each others’ weaknesses, insecurities and dark sides very well. In fact, you know each other so well that some blameworthy little habits can become strangely charming.

9. You are open with each other

Your best friend knows everything about you, from your darkest secrets to the most embarrassing moments. When you get into a relationship with your best friend, that level of comfort remains the same, which is very hard to develop in even the strongest of relationships. To be so open with each other is next to impossible, but since you two started off without the intention of being in love, you didn’t have any protective shell around you.

10. You are aware of each other’s past relationships

This means that there is a less chance of any serious surprises popping out of nowhere in your relationship since you share a common past.

11. You have many inside jokes that no one else understands

As best friends, the random laughing, singing and dancing that goes on between the two of you is the matter of jealousy and admiration. You have possibly even coined words and phrases that no one else understands except you two.

12. You don’t have to call each other every time

You can actually go a little while without talking to each other and be completely fine. You are not worried about the fact that you will let your partner down because you know each other too well.

13. You can do childlike things together

As best friends, you must have already done some childish things together, like skipping instead of walking and licking the butter. And you are not going to stop it, because you guys are so comfortable with each other that embarrassment is no longer a factor between two of you.

14. You are honest with each other

Ever tried lying to your best friend? Even if you did, after a while, you tell them what you lied about. This is what real friendship means, when the friendship is so pure and kind, the elements of “hiding” and “lying” become very weak and can’t survive. When you are in a relationship with your best friend, truth becomes more powerful than ever, because you already know that they will see right through you and you yourself won’t be able to do it.

15. You don’t worry your partner might do something silly in front of your family

The reason behind this is that both your families have seen you two walk together as good friends and as a couple for a long time. They have seen it all and are absolutely at ease and comfortable with you.

16. You connect at a much deeper level

It always looks like you know what your partner wants even when they haven’t spelled it out. You are totally in sync. This is because of the strong foundation of friendship you have built and enjoyed each other’s company for years.

17. You can see yourself growing old together

Growing old with your best friend is the best thing that can happen. Imagine having to spend your sunset years stuck with someone you can’t stand.

18. You have better social lives

You already hang out with your best friend almost every day. They are a part of your social circle, so dating them doesn’t really bring any big change to your social life. Two of you are going to hang out in the same manner, the long drives are going to be the same, everything is just going to be much more exciting. Just be ready for the infinite teasing that ensues.

19. You actually listen to each other

The title of “best friend” isn’t just handed to someone. We become best friends after a lot of struggle and many tests. Your best friends are always there to actually listen to you, no matter how much you want to talk about, they will never get bored of listening to you. The same thing happens when you are in a relationship with your best friend, you two will give each other all the time in the world, you two will “listen” to one another, you two will always let each other know that neither of you are alone. That’s the beauty of friendship.

20. You forgive each other quicker than ever

Last but not the least, we all fight with our best friends. How long does it take to fix those fights? It feels so bad to not be talking with the person who we are so attached to. In my case, it usually takes a few hours before one of us is apologizing to the other regardless of whose fault it was. The same thing happens when your best friend is your life partner. Forgiveness becomes very easy. This is because the foundation of the relationship is friendship and true friendship is one of the strongest of foundations.

The secret to every happy and successful relationship is adjustments and forgiveness, and when you are in a relationship with your best friend, your ego takes a backseat.

So how many reasons do you find in your best friend?

      Hi Kathryn

      You are really luck to have your best friend as your life partner and your love. I totally believe in this fact that one should be friends first and then partner.

      Thanks for writing in

      Have a nice day!

  • Yes Sonal, I believe this to be true. Why? Well you gave 20 solid reasons why, but even better than that, I did find forever love with my best friend.6

    He passed away August 4, 1989, but those 14.5 years were the best of my life. We have 3 beautiful children together and 6 beautiful grandchildren.

    Life is so much richer when it isn’t based on fantasy love or sex. Our love was the good, bad and ugly type of love – unconditional love, no pretenses. It was based on reality and a solid friendship foundation.

    Sharing this information! 🙂

      Hi Ikechi

      I totally believe in this that our best friend can be our best life partner. With our friends we are totally ourselves without any pretensions. This makes the relationship go on.

      Thanks for writing in

      Have a nice day!

  • Whilst I agree in principle to this I think we have the ability with friends to leave them for times and that isn’t possible with a partner, I think this is why friendships last so long. At the end of the day you go home and shut the door and the friend is not with you so anything that is done or said is left outside. With a partner all of those things are there with you all the way, there is no respite or relief from it. I personally think friends are friends and are different people from partners. I don’t know that I would find a friend a good partner but they are amazing friends, for sure.

    Enjoy the journey!

      Hi Prince

      I totally believe in this that the best friend can be your best life partner as the person knows everything about us. Both our positives and negatives. You should definitely think about it. And do let me know whether it worked out or not.

      Thanks fro writing in

      Have a nice day!

  • I’ve only got a girl best friend! But I’m glad that I have met my partner in life. Though he’s not originally my best friend, we’re the very best of friends today.

      Hi Lern

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your feedback. If your life partner is also your best friend…what else do you want. I guess you are very lucky!

      Have a nice day!

  • This is so damn true
    I mean if your best friend asks to marry you, i think you should say YES without blinking your eye even…They make life so much better and easier. I think they are better than any other stranger who flatters you endlessly….A best friend will compliment you (DUH) but they won’t hide your bad sides or their own, to make the game work for both of you… Its all really mutual! Loved it

      Hi Usman

      Bang on! I absolutely agree, if the best fried compliments you , he or she is also the one to criticize you when you are wrong. You are your own self with your best friend without any pretensions.

      Have a nice day!

  • I agree with you, being best friends with your life partner is a catalyst for a happy ideal relationship. Your listed so many positive ways of interacting in relationships, thank you
