5 Reasons why you should start dating your best friend!

08 March 2016, 08:22 Annie Mwirikia

Nairobi - We all have that one guy who has been stuck in the friend zone for years on end. The guy who is your go to guy, the one who would never say no to you even if it means driving you to your bae's house or listening to you groan about your relationship issues or even your  inability to find the perfect man.

He is dependable, unselfish and kind but he lacks certain sparkle and he has stayed put in the very little brotherly confinement of the best friend zone? Here are 5 reasons why you should explore the possibility of dating the guy you consider your best friend.

You have been praying for a man and his name keeps coming up.

The biggest joke on you! He just might be a diamond waiting to blossom!  But you will never know if he is actually your dream man if you keep judging him by his looks or possessions. Give him a chance!

Upgrading a man from the friend zone to the bae zone may be life changing not just for him but surprisingly for you too!

You want to get hitched, Pronto!

Any new guy who dates you is going to go through all the steps of a relationship before he proposes. Anything could make him change his mind before he does but the guy in the friend zone already thinks you are near perfect and has loved you for years meaning he would be more than willing to do it if given the slightest opportunity.  Most women love doting husbands, don’t they?

You can't seem to find a good man anywhere close.

Everywhere you look, there are men who are liars and cheats only out to break your heart! It could only mean that you are stuck at picking unsuitable men or you have an irresponsible behavior that makes you consciously date men who you know will hurt you. Either way, it's a great time to consider picking a man you normally wouldn't consider since your choices are poor choices.

You want to be treated like a queen..at least for once.

Are you tired of dating men who make you do all the work, expect so much from you and offer nothing in return and treat you badly just because they think they are doing you a favour dating you ? Then it is time you go on and date that man you forgot in the friend zone. There is nothing sweet than  a man who treats you like a queen. 

You don't want regrets in future

 Many women end up with regrets at the choices they made and some of them wish they had given that nerd now turned billionaire a chance! So if you don't want to be stuck with  - I should’ve, would’ve, could’ve, throw caution to the wind and date that guy!
