What happens when you start hookup your best friend

opinion

My best guy friend and I have had the most platonic friendship imaginable since we met many years ago. He was always out making a scene until the wee hours of the morning, was generally super loud, and had a horrible habit of playing Cee Lo Green songs on repeat for hours. I talked a lot like, A LOTcried about men on the regular, and drank way too much.

After a while, though, we made it over the hump. Suddenly we were the closest of friends. It was just simple friendship.

Nov 21, But, the one...

He and I would regularly spend hours talking, sometimes about completely nonsensical things and other times about the most serious of issues. The best part was that I felt I could talk to him about anything that was happening in my life without even a hint of judgment. I noticed him acting a bit more like a potential love-interest than ever before — holding doors, picking up tabs, looking at me dead in the eye when I spoke, putting his hand on my leg each time we sat next to each other.

I tried to ignore it, but when he went in for the kill after a few drinks on the last night of the trip, I was — surprisingly even to myself What happens when you start hookup your best friend very easily wooed. This is your happy ending! I felt the kiss like a shock wave through my entire body, and the rest of the night still feels like it was too good to be true.

We were on different flights home so we parted ways with a quick, awkward hug and I vowed to stow away my feelings and never think about the situation again. After What happens when you start hookup your best friend week passed without so much as a word from him, I decided I needed to break my silence and finally tell my one of my girlfriends what had happened. As the words were coming out of my mouth, something awful happened.

It had to be. Both of us would eventually realize we have real feelings for each other, there would be some sort of big, romantic gesture, and then we would end up together forever.

I was used to talking to him a few times a week, but suddenly he stopped responding to my texts all together. But, somewhere in my subconscious I was certain he was avoiding me.

I envisioned what things would be like if he felt the same as I did.

Sep 19, If you've hooked...

By the next time I saw him I had made myself so insanely nervous that I was all around a complete and total embarrassment. I decided to have a few drinks to take the edge off. With my beer jacket on, I tried to make a move, and was completely shot down. The next several times we hung out I continued to work every move and line I had in my arsenal.
