When your best friend is also your partner, pursuing a romantic relationship can be a lot easier; after all, you already know your partner, and you’ve already faced the bad and the good.
You know what they like, what they dislike and what they want in life, and chances are you’ve known each other for a while, so you’ve been in each other’s lives long enough to truly understand each other.
While not everyone is willing to date their best friends for risk of losing the friendship or because ‘it’s too weird,’ the following signs see no problem with that.
In fact, they see it as the smartest choice one can make.
If a relationship is no fun, then Aries isn’t interested, which is why Aries is always on the lookout for friends who can match their energy and their strong personality.
Once that friend is found, Aries will make an effort never to let go, which means that their friend pool is the first place they’ll look into when it comes to romantic relationships.
After all, their best friends are already an integral part of their life? Why not take the next step?
It’s only practical, and everyone knows the Ram is as practical as they come.
Leos know themselves as charming and a catch, so they can be quite picky about who they date.
This means that Leos prefer dating people that they’ve already vetoed, since they know they can actually get along with them.
As one of the most loyal signs in the zodiac, it makes sense that Leo looks to be with people who have already demonstrated their loyalty, so for this sign, the step between a best friend and a partner is a short one.
Sagittarius is one of the most social signs out there, so they need to have a partner that can run in the same social circles and share the same kind of energy.
The best match for Sagittarius is someone who likes partying and meeting new people just as much, as well as someone who understands that flirting can be harmless fun for everyone involved.
Who better to keep up with Sagittarius’s thirst for excitement and socialization than the person who’s already doing it?
Gemini tends to be a chatterbox; for that reason, it pays to be with someone who’s not only just as chatty but has plenty of interesting conversation topics, and their friends more than fit the bill.
While Gemini will be open to finding romantic prospects outside their friend group, their friend’s acceptance will be imperative. Their match will have to fit in almost perfectly with those already in Gemini’s life.
A naturally friendly and sociable sign, Aquarius is often surrounded by valuable friends and acquaintances, which means they’re almost certain to date within that social circle.
One of the most important characteristics for those hoping to woo Aquarius is to enjoy discussing a variety of topics or even arguing about them without taking things personally, a trait almost certain to be present in those who are friends with Aquarius.
Scorpio dislikes pretension and falsities. To endear yourself to them, it’s best to act like yourself and not try to fool this intelligent sign.
Since Scorpio distrusts strangers, moves slowly in relationships and treasures loyalty above all, it makes sense for them to often date their friends; After all, they’ve already proven themselves trustworthy.
