Dating and falling in love with a friend seems like the ideal situation. Monica and Chandler on Friends certainly made it work. But in real life, it can be a little bit more complicated. Since you and your friend probably already have a great dynamic, it might be tricky to tell if those feelings are turning romantic. If someone in your group has started to demonstrate the signs a friend likes you as more than just friends, you might want to keep an eye out and have a conversation.

"Dating within a friend group will certainly change the dynamic of the group," dating coach Erika Ettin previously told Elite Daily.
