Dating a good friend
Best-friend love is starting to sound better and better.
I enlisted the help of Monmouth University Polling Institute to investigate.
This finding is consistent with research showing that relationships with more companionate love – based on friendship, feelings of affection, comfort and shared interests – last longer and are more satisfying.
In fact, companionate love is more closely associated with relationship satisfaction than is passionate love – the type of romantic love based on intense feelings of attraction and preoccupation with one’s partner.
Having a romantic partner who is also your best friend potentially sounds perfect.
With your BFF as your romantic partner, you get the best of both worlds, someone with whom you can laugh, share your life and cuddle.
