    I would say… no. I mean, he is one of my best friends of course. But in terms of pure friendship? No.

    My SO and I also have platonic best friends, but honestly? He is my best friend and I’m his, we have a great friendship as well as a great romantic relationship. I know this doesn’t happen/work for everyone, and it’s not something we planned on. It just happened. I have more fun and feel more comfortable with him than literally anyone else in my life.

    He is my best friend and the only person i can be completed honest with. 

    I have friends and i love them dearly, and we connect on a different level than me and my fiance for obvious reasons.

    But my fiance is the number one person, lover and friend in my life.

    My boyfriend and I are the exact same way. We are not each other’s best friends, we are very close and know alot about each other, but a best friend is a different thing, a different catagory,  different kind of relationship ha. He has known his best friend all their lives and its the same with my best friend. I have known her since pre-school. As far as secrets and stuff sometimes I wish my man and I were best friends and I tend to open up to my boyfriend easily wheras he doesn’t tell me anything. But, it just gets weird if signifigant other is your best friend, in my opinion, because if you lose them or break up or it doesn’t work out or something, you will lose your best friend, your confidante, your amigo.

    I always wonder what happens to the ladies that are in a romantic relationship that claim that thair bf is the best friend when they break up do they stay friends or have they literally lost their best friend? Besides, I am happy that we have seperate best friends, I mean, who else are we going to talk to about each other when we piss each other off and need to vent haha.

    DH is my best friend. We do all of the things I do with other friends plus more. I would rather do  99% of activities with him than with anyone else. We talk, we laugh, we have fun running errands. Occasionally we “date”, or cuddle while watching a movie, and of course we are intimate, but a lot of the time we just hang out and that makes me happy in and of itself.

    @Livelifeveryday:  We both have other friends that we can vent to about each other lol. But if we ended up breaking up? Yes, I would be absolutely devastated not only from the loss of our relationship/future but the loss of my best friend. That’s why *fingers crossed* everything will work out and we’ll be together for the rest of our lives.

    I love my FI. He’s my biggest supporter and love of my life. We spend almost all of our free time together, but he’s not my best friend. I hold him above the title of “best friend.”

    He’s one of them, absolutely, but the whole “omg yay I’m marrying my best friend!” thing kind of weirds me out. That’s not how I feel about it. He’s pretty awesome, but I also have a female best friend who is also totally my soul-mate and my person.
